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.

Gazdag, összetett és karakteres, rendkívül kifinomult ízvilággal rendelkező főzet, melynek zamatai fantasztikus harmóniában olvadnak össze. Az ízjegyek kiemelésére éppen ezért nem is fordítottam túlzott figyelmet, igazi erényeként leginkább a merengésre késztető, gondolatainkat kisimító kiegyensúlyozottságát említeném.

Bottle, 0.33l. Hazy ruby brown color with thin frothy tan-like head and good lacing. Aroma of caramel, burnt sugar, dried fruits, yeast, spices and alcohol. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel, follows by fruity sourness and alcohol note with warming mouthfeel and medium bitter finish. Full body, oily texture and lively natural carbonation in palate. Delicious strong ale with appealing bottle design...

Cybion (70) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
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.

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.
