3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
My least favorite of the dlirium series. As others have noted, the caramel is pretty potent in the taste and almost ruins it for me. Spicy yeastiness is also there, but not nicely balanced. In the overall scheme of things, a good beer, but a bit "clumsy" compared to the rest of the stable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rum raisin and caramel apple aroma. Notes of cinnamon or clove in the nose as well. From the bottle this beer pours a dark brown with a thinning head. A dry "belgian yeast" quality on the first sip. Caramel, malty alcohol body and bitter dry in the finish. The spicy clove tinge in every sip makes this an enjoyable "evening buzz".

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark clear brown, nice head. Aroma of caramel, yeast, alcohol. Nice but not as nice as some Belgians Iíve had lately. Flavor of caramel and some yeastiness as well as a little alcohol. Not all that complex. Caramel is the most dominant characteristic for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle. Dark brown pour, slightly murky. Beige head. Nose is dark fruits - prune, raisin - and brown sugar. Flavor is sweet breads, like sticky buns. Finish is lightly dry, with a alcohol burn. Not a top-tier BSA, but enjoyable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a deep reddish brown with thin light brown head. Nose is bitter and alcoholic. Flavor is robust and a little sour. Warming feeling persists. With the cooler weather this is a real treat.

Bottled. Reddish copper colour, mediumsized beige creamy head. Sweet alcohol, caramel, malts and yeast in aroma. Flavour is hoppy, smooth with hints of spices. Also a huge peak of alcohol.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 33cl. Dark brown with reddish hints, big beige head, mostly diminishing, and thatís a pity! The aroma is spicy with notes of malt and caramel. Strong alcohol flavour specially in the aftertaste. Malt is also present and that gives a very nice sweetness to this beer. In my humble opinion, this Delirium is very good and itís a little under-rated.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: An absolutely delightful BSA. This snuck up on me quickly with its ABV%. A nice darker colour with some nice sediment. A spicier taste that I loved. Will be back for more of this.
