Delirium (657) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - MAR 21, 2009
3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub. Pours dark brown with a moderate tan head. Aroma is a bit of roasted malt, hint of hops, and some malt. Flavor is quite roasty, with a hint of chocolate, moving to a sweeter malt backbone and bit of bitter/sour finish. Pretty good. The bitter/sour finish is a little off to my tastes, but seems to be caused by the unusual level of roastiness for a brown ale, which in other respects I like.
