COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Colour and sight: Dark brown-red. A compact white-yellow, stable and lacing head. Scent: Touches of caramel, mocha and chocolate. Spices such as liquorice and coriander are also present. Flavour: Initially, a very good mouthfeel of alcohol and softness. This is followed by an increasing bitterness, partially from the hop, but also from the roasted malt and chocolate malt. Towards the end a nice balance between bitterness, sour and sweet.

Erdinger2003 (127) - West Union, Iowa, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours a nice head that falls into a thin unbreakable layer without a lacing. Smells very nice and appealing, like belgian sugar beer. Its very sweet and very carbonated. Almost a bitter sweet tartness to its aftertaste. The mouthfeel turns me away, its harsh.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 21, 2007
750ml bottle from BevMo Carmel mtn. Nocturnum poured a deep mahogany with a ruby hue. Medium sized rocky off white head. Notes of cherry, raisin, other dark fruits (plums, pruns, fig as well). Flavor was very sweet, clean finish that left you wanting more. The best brew from the folks @ Delirium yet.
