Bottle, 33cl. Has a big white head. The color is nice burgundy/red. The aroma is rich and sweet, with notes of citrus and caramel. Flavor is rich and fruity, but still has a freshness to it. Overall a great beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of dark fruits and some dark caramel/molasses malt. Dark ruby color (before halogen) with a finely bubbled beige head. Seems to start with strawberries*, quickly superceded by something like raisin. There is a very little yeasty spice. The body is thin to medium, and the carbonation is nearly creamy. The finish is strangely both sweet and dry, even a bit astringent. It’s good stuff, but apparently not the best in style. *one time shot - just the first mouthful.

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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
