Draft in Ghent. Hazy brown color with and off-white head. Definitely taste caramel and other sweet noted. Maybe a little thin but I enjoyed it. VikingHammer (506) - Lynnfield, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Pours a murky brown with a small beige head. Aroma is almost to sweet. Lots of sweet fruits dominate the taste. Finish is Yeasty with a slight bitterness. Decent Belgian Ale. djd07 (14495) - Houston, Texas, USA - AUG 21, 2007
11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a dark copper amber color with medium light tan head. The aroma is sweet with malt. Very nice lacing on this one. The taste is a sweet caramel with a nice finish and hides the alcohol well. A very good belgian strong ale. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2007
Thanks to Kelly. Ruby/brown with a big craggy tan head. Nose is yeast, hot alcohol, raisin/port, some brightness (lime?), grape, a hint of dark malt - overall too alcoholic. Flavor is raisin/port, some yeasty fruit. A bit of honey in the finish. extremely thin body. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 20, 2007
I agree with many of the reviews here, noting that while this is a decent, well-merketed beer that the Delirium Nocturnum is could be better A tad on the sweet side, with some standard burnt spice and fruit notes. Somewhat disappointing and therefore a lot like the Delirium Cafe in Brussels.

Rich, malty, strong ale. As good as any Belgian strong you can find in the States. Most of the reviews on this page are a bit unfair to this straight up Belgian. Habanero (4676) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2013 Bottle: Pours hazy and dark brown with a huge tan head. Aroma of dark fruits, caramel an yeast. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with some alcohol. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and soft CO2. Nice. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 16, 2007
Delirium Nocturnum, sounds scary. There’s probably a swedish Death-Metal band going on by the same name. Mahogany body, lots of yeast chunks and a medium beige head. Fruity, very fruity. Prunes, apples, grapes, cherries. A little sourness and woody with a light Flemish Sour note. The rest of the beer is rather straightforward but I must that its fruity character is pretty complex. Feels very smooth and round in mouth. Some caramel as it warms-up. Medium hop presence with a light citrusy finish. Typical lively Belgian carbonation. emotv (353) - Izmir, TURKEY - AUG 15, 2007
Tasted on tap in Delirium Cafe, Dark brown even black colour.. You can feel the caramel flavour, You can feel the alcohol, and this makes you bit unconfortable but nice beer. MaliMisho (215) - East Meadow, New York, USA - AUG 12, 2007
This is now my favorite beer, I loved it. The color was a dark reddish-brown and the head was light brown. The flavor had a hint of caramel but was not too sweet.
