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.

TAR (2732) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - NOV 17, 2001
This beer is very warming in it being only 8.5%. Also not well balanced. Alcohol overwhelms and is harsh. Great aroma of fine liquor, sherry, and dark grapes. Some chocoalte, good hops, above average dubbel.

fiulijn (20256) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 26, 2002
Dark amber ale. Malt aroma. Sweet malt flavour, strong alcohol, too much liquorice taste. Palate strong, but not convincing, lacks the aroma hop. Strong, without style.

This is the brewery responsible for Florisgaarden Chocolate Gardenbier, a brew that apparently only I can tolerate. In contrast, the Nocturnum has a fairly strong touch of alcohol and sweetness. Pretty good. Better than Tremens.

UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This is another highly carbonated brew. Upon pouring it it immediately started to overflow my glass causing be to sip the foam fast! The head was filled with medium to large light brown bubbles. Its aroma was very pleasant and strong smelling. Its body is a almost non-transparent brown color. The head died quickly before I could take my first sip. There was almost no lacing on the side of the glass. A thick sweet taste filled with ..., god I wish I was better with tastes and smells. I cant place it. I can taste the alcohol content in it. It is very strong. The palate is fine, but middle of the road. I am still looking for a brew to drink tonight!
