COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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: JUL 26, 2004 Cloudy, dark beer, with a lasting head. Malt and sweet smell. Spicy and even a sweet, though well-balanced taste. Smooth palate.

This is a pretty strong beer, however, it’s rather tasty.

Deep dark and handsome is the pour, the head is commodious, the lace clings nicely to the glass. The first snaffle is malt, bubble gummy, fruity, sweet and oh ’Hell Yes Baby, Sniffable. The beer commences with a lightly sweet malt taste, the top is squinny, the finish is moderately carbonated, dry, lightly hopped, quite a drinkable beer. Ranks #351 on my current 1000 beer list.

Very dark brown color, medium head. Intense malt flavor, slight sugar-candy sweetness. Slightly spicy hops, but malts predominate. Mouthfeel is very full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is malty.

Strong, spicy, and sweet all at the same time, but also quite smooth. Overall quite satisfying.

Typical winter-brew. Ruby color. Dark spicy triple. I like the normal Delirium better.
