C-DOS Cuvée Delphine On Steroids aka Pablo Eiscobar – De Struise Brouwers


Some times you get a chance to try out some very interesting and rare beers and this is one of those.  From De Struise Brouwers in Belgium comes their “C-DOS (Cuvée Delphine On Steroids aka Pablo Eiscobar” a Double Eisbocked version of Cuvée Delphine.  This version was brewed in 2010 and aged for 5 years in Arran Lochranza barrels.  The beer pours a very deep brown colour with no head or carbonation and some sediment.  The aroma consists of bourbon, chocolate, treacle, licorice, dark fruit, oak and lots of booze.  The flavour is alcohol up front and lots of it with bourbon, oak, chocolate, treacle, licorice, dark fruits, some nuts, peat and cherries.  The alcohol content comes in at an insane 41% and is very very thick!  This beer drinks like a bourbon but this is no surprise as the beer comes in at the same alcohol content as a bourbon.  If you do not like spirits then this beer is a total miss for you but if you do and you find a bottle then it is something you need to try.  But this will cost you a serious pretty penny.
