4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Poured a nice dark brown with an average sized creamy head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. The aroma was heavy of roasted malts, a sweet doughy yeast with notes of molasses , raisons, dark chocolate and coffee. It tasted sweet at first and finished sweet yet mild with hints of raisons, brown sugar and a mild coffee note. Mouthfeel was very creamy in texture an medium in body with a flat carbonation. Overall and assume tasting brew!!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 330ml. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a deep hazy ruby (almost black). Head is large, lightly tanned, foamy, and mostly lasting. Aroma is vinous with notes of lambrusco, dark plums, juniper berries, raisin bread, Belgian candy sugar, soil and a pinch of fruitcake spices. Flavour is a light (vinous) bitterness with notes of dark plums, port winegums, blackberries, very lightly toasted wholemeal bread, dried leaves (light) and some light earthy/wood notes in the finish. Full bodied with medium carbonation and a long finish. My favourite so far from the ‘Delirium’ series!

Tasty and strong one. I always preferred brown beers and this one will not make me change my mind. Taste is surprisingly fruity, rather refreshing and complex at the same time. Probably not the best beer to get if you’re looking for something to drink without anything to go along, but definitely a great choice for any occasion to enjoy a good meal or simply listening to good music while enjoying this great beer with some friends. Very cool and especially great on tap! APPROVED BY TAVERNY’S BLACK METAL CREW!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big frothy beige head with very good retention.
Clear reddish brown colour.
Aroma is spicy, caramel, dark fruit.
Taste is strongly spicy (coriander seeds and pepper). Sour acid finish.
Crispy palate. High carbonation.
Quite a spicy beer: Pepper and too much coriander in my opinion.

A friend advised me to get this at their café, and I’m glad I followed the advice. This beer is strong but not strident or aggressive. Like an older man with his life sorted out whose company you would enjoy.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Näyttää olevan nykyään 8.5%, eikä 9%, kuten Oppaassa vielä seisoo. Korkin avaamisen jälkeen olut suorastaan ryöppyää ulos ja pöydälle, mutta lasiin kaatamisen jälkeen vaahto laskee aika nopeasti kokonaan pois. Keskiruskea, kirkas olut. Tuoksu maltainen sekä makean luumuinen. Maku makean maltainen, jonkinverran alkoholinen, kevyesti tumman hedelmäinen, belgihiivainen ja pippurisen mausteinen. Melko kuiva ja suora olut keskitäyteläisellä suutuntumalla. Ei nouse missään nimessä parhaiden belgien tasolle ja on hieman tasapaksu, sekä turhan alkoholinen kokonaisuus.
