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.

chucklemation (1501) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - OCT 15, 2016
Pours a dark amber with a foamy, long-lasting off-white head that leaves behind plenty of lacing. Aroma is caramel and toffee malts with Belgian yeast notes. Flavor is sweet caramel and toffee, with coriander spice, touches of roast, and Belgian yeast. Well-carbonated, with a smooth body, boozy. Quite good.

Bottle from bierlinie. Pours reddish brown. Smells boozy, toffee. heavy carbonation. Somehow sweet and bitter at the Same time. Palate is bitter, bread, dark fruit. Sweet finish. Very complex, but a Touch to boozy. Still great.

Ysok02 (1203) - Mons, BELGIUM - SEP 18, 2016
Robe brune dense, mousse peu persistante. Nez typ sur des notes de caramel, de malt, de chocolat au lait, de figue. Bouche lattaque ample, puissante, de la matire, une bulle plutt discrte, mais une belle persistance. Une bire classique, de fin de soire.

Ciemne słody zmieniają się w tym piwie w ciemne owoce - są figi, rodzynki, daktyle, a wszystko polane brązowym cukrem i nutą karmelu. Jest słodko, ale szczęśliwie moc alkoholu przydaje piwu nieco wytrawności. W smaku pięknie grają nuty jeżynowe, ktre zostawiają lekko winne posmaki. Z pełnią i słodyczą piwa wspłgra nuta ciemnego pieczywa.

Bottle. Black with a medium head. Smooth malty flavour and quite creamy. Left quite a lot of lacing. Well worth trying.

Rei00 (93) - CHILE - SEP 8, 2016
Una Belgian Strong Ale de color marrón turbio con una alta carbonatación. Su aroma es a caramelo y frutos secos (Nuez y pistacho). Su sabor es a ciruela y caramelo con estelas de toffee con un suave sabor a alcohol al final. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gehbe (305) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - AUG 28, 2016
Pours a beautiful clear ruby with a huge light tan head. Aroma of caramel, strawberries, dark bread, spice, malt, unrefined sugar. Tastes sweetish but not too sweet. Fairly light body for the ABV, warm spicy alcoholic finish, high carbonation. A dangerous sipper/gulper!

Nice 3/4" fluffy lite tan had that leaves behind good lacing... Hazy walnut brown... I may be the only one who doesnt like the faux ceramic bottles; no matter how hard you try, I always get big blobs of yeast in the glass. Lightly spicy with dark dried fruit.. caramel lite cloves and lite raisins and dried sweet sour cherries. Big carbonation on a lite/medium body... flavor is exactly like the aroma except with a little musky and metallic notes.. not Deliriums best beer for sure. I dont know why, but I always want my BSDAs to have a touch more body
