3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 330 ml. Pours deep, cloudy ruby with over a finger of soapy light tan head. Lacing is substantial and thick. Aroma of caramel malts, honey, citrus, apricot, orange, berries, and a small grassy note. Taste is more sour than anticipated, with the citrus and berry notes coming through in full force, backed up by honey and a grassy, herbal or vegetable finish. Finish is also quite dry. Carbonation is quite high and the body is a slightly watery medium, so the feel in the mouth could be better. Alcohol is noticeable in both taste and aroma. Not a spectacular brew but nice enough tasting; the biggest appeal of this to me is that utterly gorgeous bottle design, with it;s psychedelia artwork and ceramic glass look. This one is for the display shelf.

Bottle. Dark brown color with fluffy light brown head. Pleasing aroma - lots if spice notes. Coriander, licorice even a little pepper in the back. Similar taste, with dried fruit - dry on the mouthfeel with a little sour note right at the end. Nice beer.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This one pours a dark brown with a ruby hue and a thick white head that slowly thins out. The aroma is wonderful and full of ripe fruit, candy and melon. The flavor is full of sweet fruits. Dried apricot, plum, orange marmalade and pineapple. There are sweet bready malts as well that mix with the fruit flavors to give this beer a fruit cake quality that has been laced with warming alcohol. Delirium Nocturnum is a delightful Belgian ale with a full body, average carbonation and a sweet fruity complex finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolets BU. Annoying, blue foil covers the cap. Pours medium to dark brown. Lots of bubbly, white head. Takes some time to settle. Malt, metal, caramel, wort scent. Some candy. Low on carbonation. A bit below medium body, surprisingly. Mouth feel reminds me of a dunkler bock. Sweet, some sourness and some bitterness. A bit unripe cherry, malt, caramel, some metal, some pear aroma. Not a favourite.

No matter how I poured this, got a large billowing offwhite/light tannish head. Body is brown. Initial sip was very carbonated and prickly on the tongue. Set aside for a few moments as thinking it was served too cold. Tasting raisins, but also a bit sweet. A bit of sour in there. Tasting the chocolate malt as it warms. It is a bit boozy. Definitely better as it warms a bit. Can feel the alcohol on it. Was expecting something a bit more. Good beer, but for the price there are others I would go to instead. Glad I tried it but will move on.
