This was a nice winter ale. Perfect for those cold winter nights. Beer was poured a dark brown color and a light head. Aroma was spicy and flavor was nice and smooth although itís pretty strong, but well hidden. Good stuff overall, looking forward to getting some more of this.

Got this for xmas from my pops. He said the beer guy told him it was the single highest selling beer in the store for the holidays...i bet its cause of the xmas elephant on the front. Beer poures a beautiful burboney brown with some haze and a medium amount of froathy offwhite head. Aroma is banana, yeast, spices, pine. Flavor is delicious, very smooth, perfect balance of hop, malt and alcohol. Overall, a xmas classic. Definitely buying again next year.

750 ml corked bottle, pours a beautiful dark honey color with a creme colored, medium-sized head that fades slowly. Medium activity carbontation. The nose is one thing: banana nut bread. Itís almost uncanny how wonderfully bready and sweet this is. The taste is mixed and hard to put my thumb on. So much happens at once, itís hard to tell if the sweet, doughy part or the earthy hop is first, because both tastes seem to overlap at the same time. The alcohol is very noticeable during the finish and for awhile on the stomach. The palate is smooth and silky, not acidic or bubbly at all. A wonderful seasonal beligian. To this date I havenít had the regular Delirium Tremens, so I canít compare the two but this one is a winner.

I had the last bottle in a Belgian place up here. The nose had some fruit and spice in it, and the flavor was full of something in between grapefruit and sour grapes. It also had plenty of spice, with a body not unlike an oktoberfest. I couldnít detect the alcohol in it at all, it was quite wonderful.

750ml. Since it had been a while since I had had Tremens or Nocturnum I really canít tell you if they were similar in taste, but it sure did remind me a bunch of memories of having them. Great holiday beer, very spicy, and had less of an alcoholic taste then I would have expected considering the high alcohol content.

Another outstanding Belgium beer. From a bottle with my boss. Aroma is spiced banana bread, as is the taste. A bot of malt, novices might say that it was too sweet, but I loved it. Citruses, low carbonation, and some cinnamon and clove spice. Great. Thanks Dad for bringing this down from Cleveland.

On tap and from bottles. Easily the best holiday beer seeing that theyíre not concerned with how many spices they can cram in there. If I want nutmeg, Iíll drink egg nog. if I want a solid, matly, holiday belgian ale, then Iíll drink this stuff.

750ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a pretty robust, tan head. Really, really spicy aroma. Taste is fruity and spicy. A nice Christmas beer.

Bottle, 700 ml. Pours clear brown/amber with a lasting tan head. Nose is spicy with lots of sweetish dark malt. The flavor is sweet, mainly malt and fruit (raisins, plums, dates and citrus). Also yeast and alcohol. Medium to full body. Well balanced, slight acidic/bitter finish.
