COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
11 % ABV 2014 - 2016. 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.

TrefwoordPunk (1332) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 30, 2009
Bottle 25 cl. Pours almost pitch black with a small tan head and an aroma of ripe fruits, milk chcolate, roasted malts, bourbon, tobacco and licorice. The taste is very sweet, fruity and roasty tot start with and later on turns more bitter. A nice long bitter finish. A very nice brew, but not the best Struise

omhper (26040) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2009
Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Very black, beige head. Slight menthol aroma. Sweet and full bodied withsome asphalt. the whisky flavour is quite subtle, but takes the sharp edges of Black Albert and stills some of the inheritent brutality. Licorice mingles with bourbon in a careful finish. A tamed monster.

ante (3373) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2009
Bottled at Monks Café Wallingatan, Stockholm shared by baggio. Pours out in an opaque black colour with a rich and thick pale brown head. Roasted malts, black chocolate, licorice, salt and bourbon. Full-bodied with rich and well-rounded notes of licorice, black cherries, salt, roasted malts and coffee with oaky and ashy undertones. Long warming finish of wood, dark chocolate, coffee and sweet licorice.

baggio (338) - norrtälje, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2009
Bottled at Monks Cafe Wallingatan. Apperance: Very dark brownish with a huge dark brown head. Looks very smooth. Aroma: Cream, Hint of bourbon, Roasted malt and Coffee. Nose is not very impressive. Taste: Smooth and creamy but without that sweetness i had expected from the bourbon-barrel-aging. Nice touch of chocolate and some bitterness at the end. Palate: Very complex but quite rewarding. This beer was very hard to rate for me as it was totally different from what i expected. A good beer but there are better barrel-aged stouts out there.

finol (3539) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2009
Bottle at Monks Wallingatan, Stockholm. Pours black with a small brown head. It has a thick sweet aroma like cream, some bourbon and rosted malt. Tastes of chocolate, cream and vanilla. Could have passed as a milk/sweet stout, very smooth.

hirigalzkar (3302) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2009
Bottle. L: Black. Small but long lasting brown head. S: Creamy with a perfect touch of bourbon. Mmm...milk. T: Sweet aged character, vanilla/cream, small small bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall: Thick and smooth beer. More elegant than powerfull stout. Somewhat vinous with its aged character.

jbrus (4988) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2009
[email protected] Medium strong aroma with mainly licorice, chocolate and whisky. Very black, brown head, good lace. Very sweet, very bitter, chocolate, coffee, whisky of course. Thick, soft, warming. Powerful stuff, flavourful, bit too sweet IMO but overall great.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2014 33cl, Vintage 2012, at 11%Vol, exclusive brew, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex sweet Stout, yet heavy, balanced, cloudy, good head, top class!, but expensive

holdenn (2127) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2009
Handbottle thanks to xnoxhatex for this rarity. Pours a brown black with a thin beige head. Nose is similar to black albert, but more. Roasted chocolate malts, with red fruit and belgian yeast. Roasted chocolate flavors, fruit, bourbon, and a drying sweetness. The barrel’s presence is light , but it works. Light carbonation with a dry woody finish. Good beer.

handbottle with a big thanks to xnoxhatex for busting this one out or to andrew for grabbing these from his stash!... dark almost black pour with a soapy light tan head...aroma of black albert at its core, strong belgiany stout with sweet vanilla and bourbon scents. licorice too...belgian yeast and chocolate with a bitter finish. somewhat warm but booziness eventually fades. roasty in the finish. lighty carbonated. enjoyed just slightly more than the black albert i’ve had in the states.
