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.

mathieuc (2189) - Québec, Quebec, - JAN 17, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 22, 2015 Pours a tuilé black (brown rim) with a quickly dissipating milk chocolate-like head. Aroma is mostly alcohol with a well-hidden roastiness. Taste is sweet with not much bitterness and a little burn. Flavors are mostly burnt grains and alcohol. Palate is nice and creamy with ample carbonation. This is good beer, bro.

Just way too strong for my tastes. Treacley and heavy...a different drink to other Imperial stouts that I’ve tried.

thornecb (4825) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 28, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2015 2012. Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with good retention recedes to hug rim. Hot espresso and soy aromas. Thick with licorice and hot chocolate upfront turning to vanilla in the lasting burn finish.

ChtiBreizh (150) - Rennes, FRANCE - JUL 26, 2015
33cl bottle. Bottled on 09/2014 and drunk on 07/2015. Opaque black with a thin frothy head that does not last long, nearly no lacings. Vinous, sherry-like, molasses, roasted, lots of black chocolate, liquorice. Very sweet, and slightly bitter, alcoholic. Full bodied and soft carbonation. No clue about the effect of barrel aging as I did not try Black Albert yet. Wood is not easy to feel at least. Complex, good but a little too sweet.

Black pour, creamy tan head. Nose is dark chocolate, nuts, booze. Taste is fudge brownies, figs, maple syrup. Creamy palate. A little too sweet for me but still pretty impressive.

Idiosynkrasie (4922) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 24, 2015
330ml bottle [13% abv]. Jet black colour with late awakening, average to huge, thick, creamy, fully lasting, superbly lacing, tan head. Complex dark malty aroma, notes of treacle, molasses, vanilla, leather, dried dark fruit, caramel, toffee, some yeasty spiciness in the background. Taste is moderately sweet dark malty, notes of molasses, treacle, toffee, chocolate, vanilla, dried dark fruit, additionally mild yeasty spiciness with a Marmite touch; oily texture, super soft and slightly sticky palate. Unbelievable drinkability, very harmonious and holistic.

Bottle at Kulminator antwerp . Wow looking back on these notesites thus was by far the most epic beer tasting night I’ve had. All these awesome beers in one place. Sweet almost Belgian candy though this is a stout. Black body . Some fruit elements that make this an interesting and unique stout. Awesome beer.
