Decent beer, I remember it being a lot better than this however. A bit of a metallic taste.

Kauge (941) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja (Ä 4.40). BB Sept 2017. What a curious label. An elephant dancing on ice, Santa throwing bottles at Snowman, and in the upper part, a row of birds falling on their beaks. What will this beer make me do I wonder. The bottleís also interesting. How do they do that? Anyway, the beer poured a clear caramel colour, its head was big initially but dropped fast, leaving a bit of lace and a thin layer. Creamy beige colour. On the nose I got caramel, mixed with some childhood cellar shop bubblegum, it was candy-like, and as it warmed, it acquired a clovey spiciness, also a pungent alcoholic note. Some grassy hops seemed to be present as well. It tasted of alcohol and indistinct spices, dark fruits and caramel, plus a lot of herbal bitterness later on. It finished grainy and metallic and somewhat dry. Body was medium, carbonation near flat, with a velvety smooth mouthfeel and nice alcoholic warmth. Overall: nice, boozy, ballsy, sweet, strong ale. As I prefer darker Belgians I found this to be somewhat better and more interesting than, for example, Duvel, that I had before.

ronaldtheriot (1598) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - MAR 8, 2015
Delirium NoŽl has a think, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, rust-read appearance, and a good bit of sediment suspended throughout. The aroma is of slightly fruity, sweet, brown bread crust, and the flavor is the same, with candy sugar and very low bitterness. There is also a strong spiced holiday bread component. Mouthfeel is between light and medium, and this beer finishes a little boozy. RJT

Рождест& пиво от "розовы&# слонико& Более "жесков&# чем Делириу& Тременс. Впрочем, и более крепкое. Во вкусе немного карамел& специй.

Söt, kola doft & mandel. Jästig smak, mustig smak & mustig vit krona som lägger sig med bubblor kring glaset. Lite kola, lite russin. Söt alkoholvärmande smak. Helt ok! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottled 330ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb as Delirium Christmas. Clear amber coloured, medium sized off-white head, coriander in the nose-quite pleasant. Sweet malty, spicy and yeasty with notes of fruits, coriander and alcohol. Also spices and alcohol in the finish. Usual Delirium taste which is not bad at all.
