3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Interesting aroma. Interesting beer. Tastes nicely of raisin and fruit, but that flavor evaporates quickly and is replaced by bitter astringency. But still a good beer.

(Tap) very fruity! Not much dark chocolate or coffee flavors. More dark fruit I guess? It’s interesting and I like it, although it’s too dry.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Pours with a dark brown hazy colour, big very long lasting tan head. Aroma is medium malty, with notes of caramel, medium hoppy, medium yeasty, with interesting notes of basement aromas, barnyard and soft notes of cheese and leather. Taste is medium sweet, medium bitter, soft sour. Little to medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation.

Not really a big fan of dark beers but I liked the mouthfeel who stays a long time!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from de Bierschuur in Poppel. The beer is dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and wall adhesive collar. Good nose with notes of caramel, mocha and dark chocolate. The herbs such as licorice and coriander reflected. The palate has a very good mouthfeel, alcohol and soft. Then it gets more and more bitterness to the fore, partly it comes from the hops. The afterdrunk is nice and long. I prefer Tremens in this series, but also this one is good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, deep copper to red body with a very long-lived, light-tan head that leaves a good amount of foam on the glass. Strong, sweet and sugary aroma of dark dried fruits, plum, candi sugar and Belgian yeast. The flavour follows the aroma, with additional caramel, alcohol and traces of liquorice. Moderate sweet taste with a moderate to light bitter long-lasting finish. Close to full body, rather oily texture, moderate carbonation with some dryness in the late finish. A nice beer, but if I could bring just one bottle with pink elephants on the label to a desert island, I’d go for the Delirium Tremens.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle (330 ml). Gusher. Dark cola color with a small quickly vanishing off-white head and no lacing. Aroma is of liquorice, cola, light spiciness, caramel and dark fruits. Taste is dominated by liquorice and light spiciness, dark fruits, caramel and cola. Medium body. A tad watery. Fizzy carbonation. This bottle was probably not in good shape (gusher, fizzy carb), but it was really bad. Lack of balance. Too much liquorice. Bleh.

Bottle shared with Tom at hotel tasting. Brown pour with disappearing head. Aroma of licorice, coca cola, booze and toasted grain. Taste is sweet, boozy, very malty, quite rich and overwhelming. Meh.
