Previously 13% abv, 11% abv from 2014->. Black Albert was used in a new barrel aging project. More than a year ago, Carlo was able to get his hands on a stock of Four Roses Bourbon barrels, and we happily filled them up with Batch „0". This unique creation was originally to be named 4 Black Roses in honour of its heritage, but our friends in Kentucky strongly advised us not to do so! What to do? As the disowned offspring of Black Albert, the name Cuvée Delphine imposed itself. Savouring the Belgian irony, we are most honoured to have artwork by Delphine Boël shining on this label. You will not find this ale all over the globe. There is no export program, but we will try to provide stock through our web shop and some specialty beer pubs.

Keg At the school hose. Opaque black with a dense steadfast head tan in colour. Aroma is intense black current, smooth roast, cherry and slight choc. Flavour is creamy berry roast choc. Warming alcohol but it hides it very well. Long roast and prune duration. Palate is velvety and full. Semi sweet but finishes pretty dry. Almost freaking perfection. Absolutely fantastic.

Pours a beautiful black beer with a good brown head. Smells coffee and roasty. Tastes sweet, coffee and roasty woth a sweet finish. Thick body, low carbo and a sticky texture.

banii (240) - Sola, NORWAY - AUG 29, 2013
Fargen er sort med et moderat men tett skum. Aroma av mørkbrent malt og et snev vaniljestang. En vag fruktighet. Smaken er oh so fyldig, mokkabønner, mørke frukter og brentmalt. Ølet er medium- bittert, og har en søtlig ettersmak. Dette i kontrast til mange amerikanske brygg av dette kaliber. Noe lakris. En øl til å bli andektig av.

Draft. WHOA. Everything I love about black albert with the roasty qualities and chocolate explosion is placed into a bourbon barrel and gets even better. Loaded with more vanilla and milk chocolate. Insanely good!

Draft @ Ebenezer’s. Got to drink this beauty with friends right before the 9th Belgian Brewfest. Ok, going to be brief because I could type a book about this stout. Perfect poor in the glass, consistent tan head. Nose is dark chocoalte, mild licorice, smoke ash with light undertones of bourbon. Flavor is just Grand and the palate is awesome. Full body with a smooth and oily feeling that lightly coats the tongue. The bourbon is sweet with lots of vanilla. I was really happy to sip this. Truly impressive.

A rare special version of the Black Albert. It’s a delicous and complex black beer with subtle tones of wood and bourbon. Get this if you get the chance.
