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.

CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 1, 2010
Bottle: snifter: THought this was quite nice... Pour was great, dry, tan head, about 2 fingers. Color of red berries, very light haze. Taste was complex, def some fruits... a berry mix I cant detail. The booze is present but not kick in the face, unfortunately, and the carbonation was rather low. Overall very smooth and enjoyable

Copy and paste my rating of Bobeline Dark Label, nothing to see, just rebranding. Bouteille 33cl, wow, never saw this Huyghe beer coming thanks to its bottle design, likely alias as well, see Delirium Nocturnum. BB 09/2019 Ambre, col pais jauntre voire blanc-cass. Arme au nez typiquement belge, qcq pices en rtro avec un fruit noir de raisin sec et figue. Malt, multi grains. Palais reste trs belge surtout avec la levure, sucre rsiduel qui pousse le tout quais 9%, fruits noirs et sec; pruneaux, raisins, dates, petite touche mielleuse, pice de coriandre sur la fin avec une pointe de rglisse. Malts pils, cara ple et Munich. Amertume noble qui perce en retrait. Correcte, mais rien qui risque de redfinir les bires belges.

malushky (119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2017
330 ml bottle from Theater of Wine. Pours clear dark brown with large, tanned head. Warm and yeasty aroma, dough, hint of alcohol, herbal, fresh and pleasant. Taste is strong, malty, warm, dough, coriander, a bit alcoholic at the end. Very high carbonation, slightly bitter aftertaste, medium-bodied. Decent beer, but nothing special.

Cristobal37 (903) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 18, 2017
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2017 Sweet candy, burnt caramel, prunes and syruppy malt aroma. Very sweet at first then the medicinal herbs and black liquorice bitterness whip in and stick around. 8.5% and the booze is quite apparent. Reminds me of an apertif like Jagermeister. Ive enjoyed Tremens many times, but this one is not for me.
