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.

beachbum25 (1086) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2007
11.2 oz bottle-Dark brown color w/a good size off white head. Sweet Belgiam aroma w/flavors of candied sugar, brown sugar, & dark fruit. Kind of thin, this one was ok, but not as good as other Delirium Brews. Kind of rough, not as smooth & complex as finer Belgians.

bleeng (1669) - Seattle still not near Beersel., Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2007
750 bottle. Pours dark brown with a huge,thick head. Typical Belgium candy nose, with chocolate notes. Body gets thinner as it warms. Tastes a bit alcoholic, with candy sugar coming through strong. A decent dubble but certainly not "world class"

Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2007
750 ml bottle. Fluffy white head and a muddy caramel brown pour. Very boozy throughout. Aroma and taste of sour fruit. Some metallic flavor which was off-putting. Between the heavy booze and the odd metal taste, I cant say I enjoyed this one much.

Maria (10213) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2007
Its a beautiful red mahogany with a nice head. The aroma is sweet, slightly perfumes with notes of candy sugar and malt. The flavour is sweet with notes of roasted malt, candy sugar, light fruit, a very light citrussy bitterness and caramel. The overall impression is for me a very heavy and solid beer, that has a lighter part in the middle of the flavour. 2295

StompBrockmore (316) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2007
Draught at Delirium Caf, Brussels - came very dark, cloudy brown with a thick tan head on top. Aroma very sweetly malty and yeasty, brown sugar, dark fruit. Flavour is of cherries and other fruit along with typical Belgian yeastiness and a smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Fairly typical and not mind blowing...flavour is a little bit mild and simple overall. Not as great as the more popular Delirium Tremens.
