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.

bdigital (658) - Ft Wayne, Indiana, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Huge Cream colored head on the pour. Ruby red in color and very bubbly. Has a strong tropical fruit aroma to it with some mild malt hints. Very fruity taste with a little spice and malt note to it. Way too carbonated for me. Not my cup ’o tea, but not a bad brew by any means.

A nice brune. The people I shared it with didn’t care for it. I liked it. It was the closest thing to a dubbel I could get.

Embrouille (2835) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 31, 2007
Bottled 33cl. My version was at 8.5 ABV. Maybe they got mixed up with the label, but it definetely said Delirium nocturnum on it. It pours a dark brown beer with a average sized mocha head. Fruity (especially plums), sweet malt aromas. Some licorice with candy sugar and brown sugar like elements. Rather sweet taste. Malty, overripe bananas, plums and apples. Pretty yeasty. The taste reminded me somewhat me of dried apricots. Sweet, slightly sour finish.

onlyrocknroll (379) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2007
Dark and red with a small head. Promising big malty aroma. Dissappointing palate though, sweet raisins, and a little nutty.

rsistare (9) - Troy, Michigan, USA - MAY 27, 2007 does not count
Strong alcohol on the nose paired with a semi-transparent amber colour. Overall, a little bitter in flavor but impressed none the less

Bottle from World Market. Bottle is 8.5%. Very dark brownis color on the pour. Decent sized head. Aroma is dry and dark. Spicy with quite a bit of bitterness. A hint of tartness. Dry bitterness seems to be dominant. Nothing special.
