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.

Incredible Imperial Stout. All common characteristics of the genre are present here. Its pretty similiar to Black Albert, but way more sweet and its end is not as sharp. Smply excellent.

Bottle from FLASK, 2013, 13%ABV. Pitch black, tiny head. Aroma: dark fruits, black berries, chocolate, coffee, bourbon, caramel. Taste: I found more sour than most other imperial stouts i have tried. It has the belgian feel. Some dark berries, chocolate, bourbon, earthy. Dry and bitter ending. Light aftertaste of alcohol.

UPDATED: FEB 13, 2018 W aromacie deserowa czekolada, paloność, beczka, wanilia, trochę estrów, wanilia, dębina. W smaku wytrawne, delikatnie kwaśna kawa, slodycz niska. Wysycenie niskie, alkohol bardzo słabo ukryty, gęste, sporo ciała, intensywne, niezwykle gorzkie i alkoholowe niestety

Wednesday, February 7, 2018. Bottle, 33cL. 13%. Vintage 2013. Bottled in March 2017. Purchase ("saveur-biere.com", FR). Home. I tasted a 15cL sample of Cuvée Delphine on cask at the bar next to the brewery two or three years ago. Apparently the bottle version is different (different file). A pitch black beer with a big beige foamy "oily-look" head ; good retention ; great lacing. Beautiful :) Roasted nose, black chocolate, woody notes, coffee notes, toasty notes, pear notes (?), alcohol. Medium round sweet, gourmet ; medium dry bitter warming ; a bit sugary. Elegant body, light to medium oily texture, soft gaseous to flat, sweet roasted dry chocolate lasting finish. Overall, delicious :) A gourmet beer.

Tide (4653) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 25, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2018 Vintage 2013, bottle. Black color, beige head. Bitter taste with roasted malts, nuts, burnt coffee, a bit of chocolate, dark fruits, wood and booze. Bitter finish with roasted malts, burnt coffee, wood, dark fruits, booze and a bit of chocolate. Okay stuff, but definately not my imperial stout style.

Old rating from my notes. Old bottle bought from beeracademy. Black with a small brown foam. Really nice aroma, sweet, roasted, alcohol, some bourbon. Flavor: dark chocolate, roasted, moderate bitter, very creamy. Extremly good beer.

murzyn (670) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - JAN 15, 2018
Barwa czarna, piana beżowa, spora. Aromat czekolada, karmel, kawa, ciemne owoce, lekka wanilia. W smaku kawa, paloność, kakao, praliny, trochę drewna i czerwonych owoców. Pifko trochę przegazowane. Generalnie jest wytrawne, alko nie wyczuwalne. Fajne pifko.
