4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml bottle that I picked up in Belgium, with a best before 2008.
Pours a cloudy, red tinged, dark brown with a two finger head that fades quickly to a thick cap, leaving behind a thick sheeting of lace behind.
Smell; very nice dark fruit aromas with plums, dates and maybe a little raisins. There’s also some nice caramel, and toffee notes, and I’m also piking up a little coffee in here as well.
Taste; the toffee and caramel are very evident in the flavor with the dark fruits with plums, dates and raisins filling out the middle. The finish has a very rich chocolate presence with a little bit of some coffee notes in there, and touches of yeast. This has a very unique flavor profile, that I’m really liking tonight.
Mouthfeel/Drinkability; the mouthfeel is medium bodied with a very smooth but active carbonation, and the drinkability is just great. I’m having a hard time putting down my glass.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A tasty brew that everyone should try again and again. Hopefully Delirium Cafe will even have a bottle next time. Aromas of fruit and candi sugar. A deep, dark brown with a nice, thick tan head. Flavors of pale malt, deceptively simple, accented by candi sugar and caramel notes ... again, some hints of dried fruits. A nice, full palate.
