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.

Nice amber color with fruity smell, like plums or prunes. Head was nice but didnít last. Taste was decent but really lacking on the finish, kind of metallic.

bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2006
Pours a clear reddish dark amber with a big, lacy, fluffy tan head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, yeast. Full body with fine carbonation. The taste starts sweet with figs and nuts and moves on to a caramel sweet finish with some vanilla and just a dash of spice and herbal hops to clean things up.

vyvvy (5015) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 14, 2006
Pours dark amber / bronze with a thick fizzy tan head. The aroma has peppery spice, caramel malt, earthy yeast - somewhat crisp and clean. Medium body with an ample amount of sharp carbonation. Taste has earthy caramel, raisins and brown sugar. It is fairly musty. The finish brings some sharpness and more fruit (dark cherries and more raisins) and spice. After the finish the Belgium earthiness lingers in the mouth for quite a while. Nice Belgium strong ale.

Pours with a good white head, large bubbles. Aromas of dried fruits,bubble gum, and yeast. Flavor was much the same with a little metlic flavor in there. A little thin in body and lacking complexity. A good beer, almost seems like an attempt of the Westmalle Dubbel but did not hit the benchmark. I did enjoy the drinkablity of it though.

bottle-pours dark brown with a tan frothy head alot of head.....aroma is very sweet and malty...tast is sweet like honey, brown suger and thers almost like a metalic tast....all in all that tast is good but i think it would be better on tap and not in the bottle due to the metalic tast i got from it.

I remember the first time i saw this Delirium and itís partner [daytime??] Man i thought this is too weird, advertising alcohol withdrawal... I was sort-of scarred/embarrassed to even ask about it. Since then Iíve read about this family brewer, and when i found it at Cost Plus in Fresno {!!} i decided to give it a go. First thing MAN what a huge head! Not even half the glass full of liquid, [and Iím a careful pourer] after fifteen minutes i added some more, then slowly watched this volcano like effect of foam coming out the top, but never spilling over the edge. Slightly tannish cream colored. Huge thick lace down the side. Dark dark brown with some amber around the edges. Interesting earthy sweetish, malty aroma. Rather drinkable flavor, [not hoppy of course] but some interesting complex favors... sweet very full mouth-feel. some roasted malt, some spiciness, some burning at the back of the throat, [the alcohol? or some spice like hops?] This wonít be a regular, but i do appreciate the ale, and have to say itís a very pleasant drink. Way cool bottle cork 1pint 9,4 oz [love that crazy European notation]
