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.

Wow wow wow. First tried from the barrel in Bruges at the Struise shop. Oily, viscous mouthfeel. Aromas of dark fruits. Taste of molasses, brown sugar, coffee and dark chocolate. Beautiful to look at with a tan brown head. Alcohol extremely well hidden. Right up my street.

Smakprov på SBWF12. Ser ut som en espresso när den hälls upp med skummet som en crema. Grundölen Black Albert är fantastiskt god och frågan är om den inte blivit ännu bättre efter lagringen på fat. Dofter av kaffe, choklad, vanilj trä och mörka bär. Allt detta återkommer i en mycket balanserad form i smaken.

Tap @ Borefts 2012. The pour’s deep brown with a massive, thick, oily tan head. The nose is of espresso, some coffee, vanilla cream. The taste is resplendently smooth raspberry fudge. Light vinous notes, some woody dry hop. Rum raisin cookie. Smooth, fat body. Viscous. A gorgeous impy. Nice work!

Thick cappucino-like head. Aroma of whisky and sweet brown sugars. Flavout is sweet and caramelly with pleasant but not overpowering whisky/bourbon background.
