On tap @ prespa. Rich. Winter spices, strongly bitter. Orange, corriander, caramel. Sweet/spicy candilike nose. Sweetens as it warms - candy comes out in the nose w. some rich maltiness. Spicing is better balanced as it warms.

A definate holiday party favorite. With the 10% alcohol, this beer really packs a whallop. Pours a pale red color with a pink frothy head that dissapates quickly, definately not the most apopetizing start. However, the aroma is of dark plums and cherries, giving the impression that this beer will have a fruity taste with a weak texture. Not so, however. The flavor is mildly fruity and has a palate that is more winelike than anything. Very nice for the season.

PorterPounder (5703) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 5, 2004
750 ml bottle - Market Sq. Liquors in Tallahassee, Fl. Pours a medium burnt copper color with a silky smooth khaki head, lots of carbonation. Aroma has some clean spicy notes with a sweet, pruney undertone. Flavor has some delicate date notes with raisins, candied sugar and perhaps some cherries. Blended together well. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy and the alcohol at 10% ais barely noticeable.

mdi (573) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 2, 2004
75cl bottle cork dated 2002. Brown/amber hue, loose head. Subtly spicy aroma, slightly musty. Alcohol burn in the flavor...some malt, certainly sweet...just not finding much of interest here...maybe some orange peel...Mostly, just sweet musty alcohol. Kinda boring.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2004
75cl Corked 2004Best seasonl this year. This one caught me by surprise. I didnt expect it to be this damn good! Very much like a trappist Quad in my opinion. Cloudy dark golden color with a small layer of film resulting from the initially large head. Nice malt aroma, fruit, candi sugar, yeast, cherries and subtle spices I could not identify. Velvety textured body soft and delicate. Flavor is a winner also. A fruity malty spicy yeasty treat. Cherries, clove, brown sugar, malt and yeast. This is one fine ale!

Delirium Cafe, Brussels 2004: Tap. Poured a clear amber with a touch of red. Large beige head. Aroma is of caramel, prunes, raisins, and candi sugar. Malty, candi sugar sweetness in the flavor with some orange. Very nice and very warming.

2004/bottle, very strong but drinkable beer. one that I will cherish. It is a triple with spice, how nice. A must for christmas beer drinkers. Pink elephants are to die for.

2004 / trappist glass / cherry fruitiness with alcohol, mild sweet and sugary characteristic, light sweet maltiness, small bitter aftertaste, and dry dusty aftertaste--actually, its quite good. as Metalhead mentions, this makes a good cross-over beer for those into MGD... its a beer that has been talked about in my hometown, and the artwork helps!

Bottled (BB 10/2007)
Deep red-brown, a bit hazy, color with small tanned head. Typical Delirum-nose: malty and fruity. Medium-to-full-bodied, warming and malty. Flavor has cherries and prunes. Long bitter alcoholic aftertaste. Real winter warmer.
