COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

March 2009 25cl bottle: pours an oily opaque with a large airy froth of dark beige head. Has a lightly sweet toasted dark caramel malty nose with some vanilla bourbon notes and a hint of fruity tartness. Starts with pretty good fullness and light effervescence with sweet sticky dark malts and some ashy smoke and mild bourbon oak before a drier roasty finish. Has good complexity with some fruity notes throughout.
