Nice very very dark brown color. Good head and all around good taste and aroma. Sweetness in the taste and good belgian body. I would never turn this beer down.

I drank this after some amount of random cheeses (i like cheese!), then
rinsed my mouth of - BRITA - water. Big fizzy head with a delightful dark-nutty brown appearance. Tastes fruity and nutty, sorta like a fig newton! But I don't care for fig newtons, I care for this beer. High alcohol content hidden by the earthy sweet flavors. This is good. One of the best labels too! Doesn't really deserve the name, but egh I don't understand why anyway... Oh well, it's a good beer. Leaves me with a cute vanilla-spice to ponder about what I actually drank - only because I stared at the label... Or did I?

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A nice sweet, refreshing taste that's a little spicier and less fruitier than regular Delirium Tremens. Definitely recommended.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
75 cL bottle, goblet, 50 degrees. Large, fizzy, tan head is quickly diminishing. Brown body has burgandy edges and tiny, dense particles. Nutty, molasses malt; grassy, perfume hops; cobweb yeast; bubble gum, red grapes, plum, pear, white wine, licorice, alcohol and solvent. Sounds pretty good on paper (minus the solvent part) but it really doesn't come together well at all. It's not that the flavors clash or anything; it's just that the aroma kind of burns my nose. Moderately sweet flavor; moderately sweet, lightly bitter, heavily acidic finish. The taste really lacks many of the flavors I was expecting to find. Medium-heavy body, somewhat creamy texture, fizzy carbonation. The bottom line is: checking the aroma of a beer should not cause pain.

Fruity and spicy ale taht goes a little to far in the palate department. Was hard to pen down the flavour as it kept seeming to change. Some might enjoy this but i found it disturbing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark reddish/amber hue with medium sized off-white head, some lacing. Aroma is woody, prune, tropical fruit, vanilla and allspice, soft and somewhat complex on the nose. Sugar sweet and alcoholic start, clean bitter bite midway, and fruity twang on finish. Dry mouthfeel. Med-bodied, warming and lively. Starts to show it's strength midway throught the glass. I really like this beer, glad to have tried it again.

Pellucid ruby amber with creamy head and slick lacing. Mango and fig aroma with lots of yeasty notes. Flavor is slightly bitter with a good hop bite. Finishes very bready and sweet. Overall it's very one dimentional but satisfying.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The best thing about this beer is the artistic bottle. I think that The Delirium Tremens is such was an exceptional beer, and I had anticipated such greatness out of the Nocturnum, I was letdown. All I have to say is that it looked like an Abita Turbo Dog, but had awesome lacing. This beer is very effervescent, and has an aroma and flavor that is fruity and malty. Overall: C+, but an A+ for appearance and packaging.
