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.

eRock_2013 (319) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 30, 2014
My first sampling of the "Delirium" line; on draft, the Nocturnum is a sweet dark Belgian strong ale, featuring a reddish brown appearance and a spicy and sweet fruity aroma reminiscent of cinnamon apple pie. In the taste, there is plenty of juicy fruit and also some toasty caramel maltiness as befitting the darker color, but this ale is overall surprisingly light and sweet on the palate, alcohol booziness is minimal, and there is an inconsistent touch of bitter hops. Very drinkable and enjoyable, similar to the Maredsous tripel I sampled a few days previously.

Brune rouge foncée. Mousse beige, peu persistante. Lacings. Aromatique maltage toasté caramel. Fruitée sur fruits noirs. Petit côté boisé et liquoreux. En bouche très sucrée caramel avec côté liquoreux. Amertume légère mais bien durable. Corps moyen, carbonatation faible.
