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.

Pours very lively from the bottle. Dark brown with a pillowy head. Roasted beans, some coffee, a hint of red fruits in the distance. Towards the end some alcohol. Medium finish with caramel, moccha, coffee beans, alcohol. Less body than a Rochefort or St-Bernardus, but very enjoyable nontheless.

MetalMurphy (493) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 26, 2016
bottle @ beer company (budapest) brownish colour, strong body, high carbonated, sweet taste, and some unidentifically elements; I like the ’delirium tremens’ much more than this, but it’s okay as well

PlutonowyMan (512) - POLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Kolor ciemno czerwony, br?zowy, mocno zamglony. Drobno ziarnista piana, o barwie be?owej, d?ugo nie zmniejsza swoich rozmiarów, pozostawia mnóstwo w?sów. Aromat zio?owy, przyprawowy, jest pieprz, jest s?odowo??, troch? ciemnych owoców i kwiatów. W smaku s? ciemne owoce, pieprzowa ostro??, dalej ciemne s?ody, delikatnie palone, karmel i nieco kandyzowanych owoców. Na finiszu goryczka (IBU26), lekka, sucha, przypalona. Wysycenie jest zdecydowanie za wysokie, momentalnie "zapycha". Alkohol ma charakter rozgrzewaj?cy, nie przeszkadza.

chucklemation (1445) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Pours a dark amber with a foamy, long-lasting off-white head that leaves behind plenty of lacing. Aroma is caramel and toffee malts with Belgian yeast notes. Flavor is sweet caramel and toffee, with coriander spice, touches of roast, and Belgian yeast. Well-carbonated, with a smooth body, boozy. Quite good.

Ysok02 (1048) - MOns, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2016
Robe brune dense, mousse peu persistante. Nez typé sur des notes de caramel, de malt, de chocolat au lait, de figue. Bouche ŕ l’attaque ample, puissante, de la matičre, une bulle plutôt discrčte, mais une belle persistance. Une bičre classique, de fin de soirée.

piwnepodroze (406) - POLAND - SEP 15, 2016
Ciemne słody zmieniają się w tym piwie w ciemne owoce - są figi, rodzynki, daktyle, a wszystko polane brązowym cukrem i nutą karmelu. Jest słodko, ale szczęśliwie moc alkoholu przydaje piwu nieco wytrawności. W smaku pięknie grają nuty jeżynowe, które zostawiają lekko winne posmaki. Z pełnią i słodyczą piwa współgra nuta ciemnego pieczywa.

johndoughty (5006) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2016
Bottle. Black with a medium head. Smooth malty flavour and quite creamy. Left quite a lot of lacing. Well worth trying.
