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.

GreenCat (98) - SLOVENIA - NOV 6, 2016
0,33 l bottle. Pours brown with deep red tone. Head is small, tan and dissipates rather quickly, but leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with dried fruits, mainly prunes and raisin and alcohol. Flavor is malt, bread, caramel, noble hop notes floral and herbal. Yeast is present, so is alcohol, some light sweetness and roasty notes. Body is quite full, sticky texture and lively carbonation. Finish is roasty bitterness.

Zarrach76 (237) - Grenoble, FRANCE - NOV 3, 2016
Grosse mousse bien paisse sur une belle brune grenat trs lgrement trouble. Nez sur les fruits, abricot en tte, pche, figue, fraise, framboise, myrtille, coing... Hyper gourmand tout a ! Derrire, des agrumes avec le citron vert, orange sanguine, pamplemousse. Lalcool est discret, les armes sont dune fraicheur tonnante. Un nez superbe, dfinitivement. Bouche puissante, avec une grosse carbonatation et une belle amertume. Les saveurs en bouche sont plus portes sur les agrumes, la coriandre,et les malts (caramel, chocolat...) que le nez. Une certaine scheresse au palet tout de mme et lalcool se rvle enfin, mme si les 8.5% sont tout de mme quilibr. On sent aussi un ct rsineux sur les gorges suivantes (pica, pin) et des notes minrales. Bire assez peu sucre, plutt brute de dcoffrage. Le nez est fminin, trs russi, la bouche masculine et un peu trop tranche. Une belle association tout de mme ! Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble. PS : la pression, cette bire est divinement meilleure !!!

Luneylane (145) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - NOV 2, 2016
A bottle from lApero off licence, drunk at home. Aroma: very rich, fruity chocolate. Appearance: opaque, very dark brown, a finger of tan froth on top. Palate: medium-bodied, lively carbonation, astringent finish. Taste: pretty boozy, completely devoid of the candy sweetness of Tremens, predominantly bitter. A sour element at the finish imparts an unfortunate ashtray taste. Better than Tremens, not as good as Red.

Chocolate, caramel, spices, dark brown with a good head, medium body, medium carbonation, some bitterness, alcohol, chocolate and dried fruits...just the pinky elefant can be so great when winter is coming, in belgium or at my home. (Drink belgian beer when outside is cold is my idea of beer, i miss you Belgium).

Yased (236) - MEXICO - OCT 27, 2016
De cerveceria Huyghe esta Dark Belgian Strong Ale de 8.5% ABV y una muy atractiva presentacin, siendo esta la versin obscura a su contraparte Delirium Tremens una Golden Belgian Strong Ale. En apariencia es una cerveza con amplia corona de espuma color arena, buena retencin, burbujas de compactas a amplias, el color es un marrn obscuro de destellos rojizos, carbonatacin constante y cuerpo mediano. En aroma es tostada y ligeramente achocolatada, condimentada, clavo presente, algo de coriandro, licorosa y acaramelada. El sabor es sumamente completo hay un dulzor y cierta torrefaccin al inicio, seguido de el espaciado a clavo, coriandro, caramelo, chocolate, el alcohol esta presente pero bien equilibrado, final semi seco y retrogusto a costra de pan con algo de frutos secos.

MetalMurphy (642) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 26, 2016
bottle @ beer company (budapest) brownish colour, strong body, high carbonated, sweet taste, and some unidentifically elements; I like the delirium tremens much more than this, but its okay as well

PlutonowyMan (710) - POLAND - OCT 26, 2016
Kolor ciemno czerwony, br?zowy, mocno zamglony. Drobno ziarnista piana, o barwie be?owej, d?ugo nie zmniejsza swoich rozmiarw, pozostawia mnstwo w?sw. Aromat zio?owy, przyprawowy, jest pieprz, jest s?odowo??, troch? ciemnych owocw i kwiatw. W smaku s? ciemne owoce, pieprzowa ostro??, dalej ciemne s?ody, delikatnie palone, karmel i nieco kandyzowanych owocw. Na finiszu goryczka (IBU26), lekka, sucha, przypalona. Wysycenie jest zdecydowanie za wysokie, momentalnie "zapycha". Alkohol ma charakter rozgrzewaj?cy, nie przeszkadza.
