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.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2014 On tap in Budapest; pours a reddish brown color. Aroma was somewhat sweet/sugary like root beer and/or liquorice with a hint of spice. Taste was nice with some good body; notes of velvety chocolate and some hidden berry. A great beer; better than I expected.

Bottle at Grease. Super-over-carbonated. Need to revisit this. Malt and dark fruit aromas. Brown pour with a HUGE off white head. So effervescent it was hard to pick at much more than the dark fruit and sweet malt flavors..

33cl bottle @ Kaisla, Helsinki. Poured dark amber with a creamy steady white head. Fruity, yeasty, spicy aroma. Flavor has hops, yeast, metal and lots of spices. Also quite alcoholic. Long fruity finish.

Nocturnum kaatuu lasiin tummana ja punertavan ruskeana. Tuoksu on karamellimaltainen ja metsämarjainen. Olut on maultaan makea, hedelmäinen ja paahtunut. Jälkimaku on kuiva. Hiilihappoja on reilusti, hieman jopa liikaa tähän olueen. Delirium Nocturnum on loppujen lopuksi maukas, mutta ei huippuolut.

Pours a dark hazelnut with a 1/2 finger. Aroma is sweet with a touch of spice. Taste has front punch. Sweetness on the backend. Decent, but not out of this world. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle @ The Bishops Arms, Malmö. Malty, spices, vanilla, fruits, some caramel but not too sweet. Medium carbonation, feels too watery.

kermis (14479) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - APR 20, 2012
Draft at Antwerp Beer Festival. Dark red/brown pour with a thin off white head. Flavour of sweet malt, dark fruit, yeast and a touch of chocolate.

Strong alcohol burn coupled to a sour apple bite against a background of sweet slightly toasty malt. Quite an aggressive fizz pushes the taste through to a long finish.
