UPDATED: MAY 3, 2013 Bottled. I think Huyghe get a lot of bad press because they brew a huge range of beers, alot of which are decidely dodgy. However I think when they think about it they can do a good job, and the Delirium range prove that. This is a dark reddy brown coloured beer which pours with alarge off-white head, which shrinks down but leaves good lacing. the aroma is yeasty with moussey fruit and peppery spices. The taste is also yeasty. The 10% comes through to a certain extent. There are peppery hops and red fruits. Well brewed with a long tasty finish. Score 3.4
Subsequent rating also scored 3.4

2005, corked bottle. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a nice tan head. It has alcohol, caramel, and spices in the aroma. Tastes sweet with a hint of orange with a slight alcohol aftertaste.

Sigmund (6116) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2006
750 ml painted (mock stoneware) corked bottle, now available in Norway (despite some objections by the humour & morality police). Amber to brown colour, large off-white head with an orangey hue. Malty sweetish aroma with strong notes of caramel, treacle and Christmas spices, also notes of yeast and oak. Flavour is very spicy and sweet (candy sugar) with a pleasant warming mouthfeel. Thereís a hoppy and spicy (and slightly alcoholic) bite in the finish. A demanding beer, but not bad.

jefcon (1565) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2006
Dense aromas of yeast, orange peel, dark fruit and candy sugar. Deep copper in color with a large bead head that eventually disappears entirely. Palate is wet, with some malt darkening the finish. Caramel, cedar, and candy sugar flavors dampen the alcohol. A tough beer to get a grip on, it changes substantially from first opening to the last warm sip.

2005 Cork. The aroma was better as it warmed, with dried plum and grapes standing out. Mine was clear with zero sediment and a tan head that laste for quite awhile. Wine like front, a little too sweet for my taste with the caramel body flavor dominating.

Had thi BJís Winter Ale Fest. Beer poured a clear, medium-amber color with a small, creamy, light brown, mostly diminishing head. As an extra bonus ... protein sea monkeys! Itís a beer ... no itís a misplaced sperm donation! The aroma was less-than-moderately interesting and faint with light malty a note of roasted grain, moderate yeast notes of cellar and horseblanket and miscellaneous aromas of vanilla, candy sugar, prnue and a trace of mint. The flavor is heavily sweet and lightly bitter with a long, lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish full of dried stone fruit retronasal notes. The body was medium-to-full, the texture was watery, the carbonation was soft and the high ABV took a short bow at the end of the finish.

This is actualy a pretty tasty beer...better than I expected from the delirium folks. Lots of fruity sweetness balanced with hot alcohol taste. Poured a thin gummy head.
