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.

Bottle. Black. Oily licorice, dark maltyness. Long finish. Old raisins, very murky old malts. Tasty.

Draught @ BBF 2013. Pours black with a generous brown head. Looks amazing. Aroma is very fruity, some raisin, chocolate, creamy. Smells really good. Taste is medium sweet and average bitter. Great combination. Lots of chocolate. Full bodied with soft carbonation.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2015 The beer was poured from the bottle in the glass. It foams heavily, very nice. The beer contains lots of alcohol, and you can taste that. It is a heavy beer. It tastes mainly like coffee and alcohol. Chocolate as well, cool! The mouthfeel is in order, a good thick beer. Overall an okay beer!

Tap at Borefts 2013. Poured a deep mahogany with a huge frothy tan head. The aroma is rich red berry fruit. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a rich fruity, slightly sweet raisin palate that simply masks everything else. A super beer.

Hermod (7693) - Vantaa, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Draught @ sbwf13. Poured black with no head. Quite flat. Roasty aroma, licorice, molasses, dark fruits. Flavor has molasses, roastedness, candy sweetness with aniseeds in finish.

Draught. Pours black with virtually no head. Feels a bit flat. Some grains and bready darkness in aroma. Sweetish taste, slightly vinous. Feels flat, yes - there are some flavors but they don’t stand out in the long run.

@bbf13: Zwart met mooie bruine kraag Aroma: koffie, gebrande mouten, donkere fruiten Smaken: redelijk zoet, rozijnen, banaan, licht bittertje, romig, karamel, toffee Volle body, romig zacht co2, fantastisch bier

Bottle sampled at RBSG. From notes. Bourbony chocolate with coffee and roasty caramel. Another winner.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Jet black pour with a tall brown head and great lacing. Frist sniff was oooh thats good. Big rich syrupy malty some milk chocolate lots of butter and bourbon and a hint of vanilla. Huge thick creamy palate almost chewy after swallow. Sweet vanillas dry lightly bitter chocolates a touch of butter a warm swallow. This stuff is amazing. Nearly perfect IS!

jbruner (4691) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Pours an opaque black on tap with bubbly tan ring of lacy head. Aroma is heavy on the roasted malt and Belgian yeast, lends to nice dark fruity esters, and then the barrel hits you; big vanilla and wood notes on the back end. Taste follows, smooth and bubbly. This is pretty amazing, priveledged to have tried it.
