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.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2006 I love Delirium Tremens, and I expected this to be the a darker version of it. I was sooo wrong. 330ml Delirium Tremens glass. The aroma was neither fresh nor old. Malty and vaguely hoppy. Flavor was dominated by a broken bitterness and a slightly coppery taste. Not what I expected.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2005
Pours deep mahogany brown with large tan foaming head. Instant sweet aroma of caramel and brown sugar. The alcohol is completely hidden by sweet roasted malt and brown sugar flavor. Full palate that clings to the tongue. Crisp sweet finish.

2 Bottles shared with HogTownHarry, GregClow, jerc & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry and myself. Pours reddish-brown with a large light-brown head with some sediment at the bottom. Aroma of sugar, malt, fruit and alcohol. Flavour of sweet malt and fruit. Can’t taste the 8.5% which could be dangerous. Enjoyable.

Bottle (330ml) - Shared with blankboy, GregClow, jerc and tupalev - two bottles courtesy of me and blankboy. Poured clear and lively dark brown with a decent off-white head. Noticeable yeasties in bottom of bottle. Aroma very mild at first, but opened out to brown sugar roasted malt, caramel, spices, raisins and fruits, hint of mushroom, and alcohol (oh yes). Caramelized brown sugar taste, sweet malt, alcohol, prunes and cloves - actually became slightly tart as it warmed. Mouthfeel typically lively and alcoholic. Overall solidly decent but not great - I slightly prefer the Tremens - a tad harsh and even a little metallic on the palate.

jercraigs (8794) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 25, 2005
Dark brown with a healthy creamy dark tan head. Some floaters at the bottom from the dregs of the bottle. Sweet candy sugar, malt and vague fruitiness in the aroma. Fruity sweet malt, - plums, dates? Drier than implied by the sweetness in the aroma. Smooth medium effervescent palate. (3+) Quite pleasant but not transcendent.

Bottle: Transparent brown color with a rapidly diminishing white head. Aromas are fruity sweet with a maltier backbone. Flavor is bitingly sweet with a sour finish.

Oh my Oh my! This stuff must be from the gates of eden. The flavor is very solid and it clings to the tounge like college co-ed. PINK ELEPHANTS BRUTHA...PINK FRIGGIN ELEPHANTS!

UPDATED: NOV 19, 2005 This is really excellent stuff. Slightly nutty flavor, sweet and sour at the same time. Great balance of flavors comes together with a good alcohol kick.
