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.

MaartenRF10 (1928) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2011
Op aanraden van de verkoper van Brouwerij de Molen, eerst een paar drupjes whiskey in het glas gedaan (Dalwhinnie) wat ongetwijfeld enige invloed op de smaak heeft. Zeer donker bier met dikke donkerbruine schuimkraag. Geur stevig alcoholisch, whiskey en chocolade. Smaak sterk qua alcohol, whiskey en chocolade.

phaleslu (9706) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 3, 2011
330 ml bottle- can’t remember if this was from lushawn or one of my other trades, but I wound up with like 3 of these in a short span of time- thanks, RBians! Tried at the STLHops Pinball Party side-by-side with a Black Albert Batch 0. Pours an opaque chocolate brown with no head. Aroma is led by fruits- plums, dates, berries- then metal, earth, dark chocolate, and some basement kind of funk. Not much roasted malt or bourbon. Flavor of dark fruits, bourbon, oak, caramel malts, chocolate, and some earthy and roasty malts. Better than the nose but still just okay. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a boozy mouthfeel. Definite Belgian characteristics but something was off here- and the Batch 0 next to it was excellent.

Pinball (11981) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 3, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2012 Bottle from Kihoskh. Pitch dark, huge dark lacing thick smooth brown head. when poured it was a 5, but after settling only a 4. Looking fantastic. hard roasted malts, loads of wood, bourbon, roasted almost coffee like notes, brown sugary caramelly notes, wood and booze is balancing each other, making the aroma very balanced and smooth. Flavor is woody, licorice, borbon, hoppy dryness, faint sort of woody saltyness, complex and strong. almost velvety but very powerfull. A great imperial BA imp stout.. 2009 version re-rated mid dec. 2012 It is stil on the top - still tasting fantastic - not sure if further aging will help any , but boy o boy is it tasty right now.

Ungstrup (35678) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2011
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a very dark brown head. The aroma has notes of coffee, roasted malt, and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and wood, leading to a dry roasted and alcoholic finish.

Kristall-König (2820) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2011
Im Geruch stark dunkelmalzig, röstig, kaffeebetont, likörige Noten. Antrunk enorm malzverdichtet, süßlich. Mittig sahnig-schokoladig und im Hintergrung schwingt eine alkoholische Fruchtigkeit mit. Abgang bitterschokoladig, dunkelmalzig und reinster Nougat. Fast brennend nachhallend. Großartige Fülle schwerer Malz- und Schokoladenaromen. Ein Gigant unter den Bieren!Test vom 26.1.2011, Gebinde: Glasflasche
