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.

Bottle. A nice cream colored head, sweet malt aromas, some candy like flavors, sweet malty flavors with complexity, warming on the finish, one caveat, don’t have two!

UPDATED: DEC 18, 2010 Bottle. Pours dark amber red with a tan head. Sweet malty aroma with dark fruity and belgian yeasty notes. The flavor has sweet dried fruits, cherry, belgian yeast, and light spicy notes. Decent.

Bottle. Amber colour with a nice head. Sweet aroma with yeast, dark fruits, roasted malt and alcohol. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a good soft sweet roasty maltiness with spices, yeast, dark fruits, caramel and alcohol. Good spiced sweet finish.

Taverner (1103) - San Ramon, California, USA - DEC 16, 2007
A decent Belgian. Could be the belgians I already had in my system - or could be the beer itself. But this stuff gave me the hiccups. Nice malty flavor balanced by the hops. Pours an amber with tan head.

beachbum25 (1092) - 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.

3.3
bleeng (1705) - Houston not near Beersel., Texas, 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"

2.8
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 can’t say I enjoyed this one much.

2.5
Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2007
It’s 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

Beerdedone (3480) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours a dark mahogany/amber color with a light tan head. Aroma of yeast, sweet malts, caramel, dried fruit and spices. Sweet and malty flavor with caramel, dark fruits, toffee, and some spices with a nice dry bitter finish.

3.7
leninthedesert (116) - Nevada, USA - DEC 7, 2007
Pours cloudy brown with a frothy tan head. Aroma is yeasty and clean. High carbonation, complex and bold palate. Strong and fruity with perfume undertones. Finishes heavy yeast and bitter - great belgian strong.
