3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From 12oz. bottle. Pours a dark, murky brown with some hints of red when held to the light. Nice tan head with decent lacing. Nose is of sweet bread and some very promising dark fruits. Flavor starts with a dry coco upfront followed by some of those sweet breads and dark fruits. Alcohol in the finish detracts some as does the dryness.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rating #400! Pours a fairly dark brown color with a somewhat thin tan head. Very appetizing aroma reminds me of candied cherries and caramel with a hint of cinnamon bread. Unfortunately, the flavor is not quite as exciting as the aroma. Some caramel with sweet sugary bread notes. Thoroughly enjoyable but not spectacular.

Cute bottle. Hazy brown, with small off-white head.
Yeasty, spicy aroma. Sweet fruit, sour berries. Malts and alcohol become prominent after a while. Yeast and malt dominate flavor.

Poured a dark brown with a nice head, kinda thin. Aromas were spicy and flavor was smooth, and not too harsh. It wasn’t a bad brew although I prefer the tremens, not too bad.

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 I’ve 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.

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.
