COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a dark copper amber color with medium light tan head. The aroma is sweet with malt. Very nice lacing on this one. The taste is a sweet caramel with a nice finish and hides the alcohol well. A very good belgian strong ale.

Thanks to Kelly. Ruby/brown with a big craggy tan head. Nose is yeast, hot alcohol, raisin/port, some brightness (lime?), grape, a hint of dark malt - overall too alcoholic. Flavor is raisin/port, some yeasty fruit. A bit of honey in the finish. extremely thin body.

I agree with many of the reviews here, noting that while this is a decent, well-merketed beer that the Delirium Nocturnum is could be better A tad on the sweet side, with some standard burnt spice and fruit notes. Somewhat disappointing and therefore a lot like the Delirium Cafe in Brussels.

Rich, malty, strong ale. As good as any Belgian strong you can find in the States. Most of the reviews on this page are a bit unfair to this straight up Belgian.

UPDATED: MAR 30, 2013 Bottle: Pours hazy and dark brown with a huge tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel an yeast. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with some alcohol. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft CO2. Nice.

Delirium Nocturnum, sounds scary. There’s probably a swedish Death-Metal band going on by the same name. Mahogany body, lots of yeast chunks and a medium beige head. Fruity, very fruity. Prunes, apples, grapes, cherries. A little sourness and woody with a light Flemish Sour note. The rest of the beer is rather straightforward but I must that its fruity character is pretty complex. Feels very smooth and round in mouth. Some caramel as it warms-up. Medium hop presence with a light citrusy finish. Typical lively Belgian carbonation.

Tasted on tap in Delirium Cafe, Dark brown even black colour.. You can feel the caramel flavour, You can feel the alcohol, and this makes you bit unconfortable but nice beer.

This is now my favorite beer, I loved it. The color was a dark reddish-brown and the head was light brown. The flavor had a hint of caramel but was not too sweet.

Bruges-07. Pours a nice dark reddish brown with nice carbonation bubbles making their way to the top of the glass. The aroma was mostly a mixture of fruit, caramel, and sugar. The flavour is largely dark fruit with some sweet sugar notes toward the end. Alcohol and yeast somewhat noticeable. I like this one much better than Delerium Tremens.
