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.

susonagger (88) - spain, - JUL 8, 2015
Delirium Nocturnum es una cerveza especial belga, 8,5° de alcohol, de alta fermentación, con 2 fermentaciones en tanque y una última fermentación en botella. NOTA DE CATA: - Vista: Cerveza oscura, calurosa y transparente. - Nariz: Aromas de malta, caramelos y nueces. - Boca: La Delirium Nocturnum, prima hermana de la Delirium Tremens, muestra una mezcla de dulzor y especias, normalmente más habitual en las cervezas walonas, donde el chocolate también hace aparición al final, cuando las temperaturas más altas del líquido suelta nuevas sensaciones.

Bubeer (107) - - JUL 1, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2015 Mahogany. Large head with high retention. Sweet metal in the nose. At least two different layers in the taste with medium to heavy sweet (and some alcohol), which combined with the spot on carbonation gives it a nice structure.
