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.

ALLOVATE (3054) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 25, 2006
Draught, own stumpy tulip @ the Delirium Café, Brussels.
Bright, lean mahogany body with a soapy pad of tan bubbles that was more charge from the tap than body of the beer as it didn’t last too long at all. Burnt toast, treacly toffee, savoury dried fruits and tree-bark bounce from the glass to greet the nose. Rich, sticky toffee, sparse chocolaty malts and bitter burnt caramel in the mouth. Yeasty, bready and smooth mouthfeel, though it was served a little too cold. Bitter malt in the swallow, dries out and has some savoury fruits and smoke in the aftertaste that linger shortly between sips. Quite sweet on the palate but with the alcohol well hidden the savoury, bitter malts balance it out with some degrees of success. Not as good as the Tripel, but I say this is one that needs to be tasted from the bottle. Draught, it was just above average.

Pours dark brown with a medium tannish head and a ton of sediment in the bottle. Aroma is yeast, figs, a bit of coffee, chocalate. Flavor is dried fruits, small hints of coffee in the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth.

Pours a chunky mahogany into a tulip. Conglomerate head with good retention and no lacing. Dried fruit aromas. Bubbly and thin. Dry with front to back fig and date. Lasting alcohol burn finish.

I like Belgian beers, and this one did not disappoint. Not overly complex; a little fruity and somewhat syrupy. Pretty good beer.

Lubiere (14133) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2006
Dark brown ale with a thick moka head. Light moka chocolate and gin alcohol, with light orange peels. In mouth, rather nice lightly smoked peat finishm with a initial bitter chocolate, coriander and orange peels. A bit short in mouth and too much alcohol, unbalanced. Bottle at l’Autre Oeil, August 4, 2006.

Zeswaft (1775) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2006
I had this on tap at the Delirium Cafe in Brussels. Seemed like the thing to do at the time. Turns out the name delirium really has nothing to do with this place. The beer was dark, malty, and smooth. not alcoholic. pretty alright.

IrishBoy (4228) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 9, 2006
2005 Bottle Nose of malts, ripe fruits, and raisins; semi transparent cherry brown with a huge tan fead, that hung in there lacing the glass; flavor of sweet malts and fruit, with a little hop bitterness.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Pours a dark mahogany brown. Has a sweet aroma of malt and fruit. Nice palate kind of thick. Very sweet taste of malt and candied fruit. Was good but too sweet for my likings

Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 9, 2006
(Bottle 33 cl) Unclean, murky brown with a small, beige head. Sweet aroma of overripe fruit. Rather full and solid body. Sweetish malty with accents of overripe fruit - plums and apricots - and a slightly perfumy edge. Rather raw bitterness in the finish. 080806

screigh (749) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2006
I am noy a big fan of Belgian style beers but the lady at the store recommended it. I have to say it was one of the only ones I have actually finished. Poured a cola color with a slight hint of red. Huge head that quikly died down but stayed around the entire beer. Aroma is sweet/candy and slight malt. I get mostly dark fruit flavors in the taste, then some slight seet/candy and then slight malt with just the smallest of roastyness.
