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.

Bouteille 330 ml. Servie dans un snifter. Une belle robe d’un noir intense surmontée d’un collet mousseux et épais brun-beige. Arôme: malt rôti, alcool, chocolat, café. Même chose au goût. Excellent équilibre et bonne buvabilité. l’alcool est bien cachée, malgré les 13% abv. Du gros stock!

Sarlacc83 (1953) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 2, 2013
On tap at Belmont Station A: Pure black with a non-existent head. Spectacular legs, though N: Roasted malt, chocolate, heavily roasted espresso, and oak. Quite a bit of licorice and there’s a backdrop of vanilla. Not particularly strong, though. T: Tons of roast and there’s a pleasant sweetness balanced out by the slightest bitterness. Lots of the nose shows up here. M: Thick, oily, and coating. Alcohol is expertly hidden. O: A well oiled machine I’d recommend. Wish it had a little more barrel character, though.

Rating #200 for this amazing beer! Sample at ’het Schooltje’ Oostvleteren. I always imagine that the quality of the beer deteriorates a little because it’s kept for a longer time in the ’tap trailer’. Though amazing idea! Appearance: pitch black beer, beige small stable head. Nose: bourbon, alcoholic, chocolate, heave taste. Taste: lots of alcohol, very sweet, chocolate, coffee aftertaste, wood, red fruits. Little dry.

@ZBF13 Amazing beer. Very nice black color and super aroma. Dark fruites, malts, hops and alcohol...all make a perfect beer.

Pours a pitch black color with a great dark brown head. Smells of dark fruits, bourbon, spent coffee, cocoa. Taste is super complex... Raisin, chocolate, a bit of alcohol, a little bitterness. Fantastic.

Licorice, caramelly, cocoa aroma. Darker than a mofo, beautiful big dark brown head if you pour from a height straight into the glass. Great carbonation, one of my favorite things about Struise. And the bourbon is there but not overpowering, nor is the alcohol noticeable at all. Magical beer. If you ever see it, buy it.
