Bottle. Big thick head. Nice sweet and toasted aroma. Flavor is good, not great, but overall a nice 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 Seems to start with strawberries*, quickly superceded by something like raisin.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.

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.
