This beer takes its name from Delphine Bo‘l, the unlawful daughter of King Albert II. She has struggled for acknowledgement in both her professional and private lives, so we decided she deserves a tribute fit for a princess. CuvŽe Delphine is our Black Albert, carefully matured on Four Roses bourbon barrels for 12 months. Mrs. Bo‘l has kindly allowed us to use her artwork for its label, which speaks for itself.
In a sea of sickly sweet and heavy bourbon aged stouts, we wanted CuvŽe Delphine to shine brightly as a pinnacle of balance and restraint. Only with a base beer as potent as Black Albert could we manage to make the aging process shine. Notes of oak and slight vanilla pair extraordinarily well with the familiar coffee and brown sugar notes from the Black Albert. The subdued alcohol ties it all together in a lush, mellow experience. CuvŽe Delphine will set you free.
