Pours a nice mahogany, with slightly tannish head that hangs around, good lace. Fruit aromas, some caramel and nuts. Sweet, hoppy flavors, a bit of an alcohol bite at the finish, but nothing overbearing. I'm liking this Belgian.

deep ruby red, nice frothy almond colored head. aroma is strong on brown sugar with a little alcohol. flavor is slightly sweet, very astringent, and i'm sure there's nothing wrong with the bottle other than what's in it.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A delightfully dark brown beer with a huge creamy head that lasts and lasts. This could easily become one of my favorites to drink over and over again. A slightly woody, nutty flavor with a strong floral, fruity aroma. Sweet but not over the top, and nicely hoppy and bitter in the finish. A beautiful beer to drink, highly recommended!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
