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.
[33 cl bottle, from Vinmonopolet Online]

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.

@Basunen 14-10-18:lite parfymerad doft av kryddor och torkat frukt. Smaken är söt men torr. Typisk belgisk. Helt ok men ingen sensation

"the mix of spices and the raisiny sweetness hide the high alcohol content quite well and give this beer a hell of a mouthfeel. In the end I liked it, but i’m still waiting for the belgian that will WOW me."
