COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

radarsock (915) - Vermont, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Had on tap at Lost Nation Saturday evening. Shared with jamesewelch. $3 for the 3 oz. serving. Pours a mahogany-tinted black; no head whatsoever. Syrupy and viscous. Aromas of soy sauce, booze, mashed bananas, cinnamon, vanilla beans, bourbon, and roasted pears. Tastes the same with the addition of brown sugar, young oak, bing cherries, black licorice candies, blackcurrants, raisins, white chocolate, and sugarplums. Slightly acidic by swallow. Dangerously drinkable.

Full bodied sweet caramel slightly roasted beer. Quite some yeast in the aroma. From the barrel aging not much sourness or vanilla, a slight bit.

Kolsvart med medium stort mörkbrunt skum! Doftar söt av rostad malt och lite whisky! Smakar verkligen fatlagrad med inslag av kaffe, choklad och lite dessertvin! Vintage 2009 så ca 5 år gammal! Grymt bra öl!

Pours black with minimal tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, figs, dares, muscovado, slightly funky basement. Taste is very sweet, dark dried fruit, barrel notes, loads of alcohol, lingering boozy sweetish finish. Body is rich, sweet and creamy, with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
