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.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2008
750ml Pours a burnt caramel color with a very fizzy off-white head. Nose of apples, yeast, and alcohol. There is a lot of malts with some apples, spice, and just a hint of bitterness. Very fruity. A nice full body with a little bit of oilyness.

Dark brown colour with a short-lived tan coloured head. The aroma is sweet and malty. There are some berry fruits and a touch of burnt wood. There are smoky malty tastes and some sugary hints before a touch of alcohol at the finish.

Dark brown with white head. Sweet malt nose. Typical Belgian abbey style ale. I really liked it but had dreams about elephants.

3.6
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. It’s very sweet and very carbonated. Almost a bitter sweet tartness to it’s aftertaste. The mouthfeel turns me away, it’s harsh.

4.1
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.
