Aroma is pretty much like any other barleywine, but it almost has a berry sweet flavor, which makes it definitely not your typical barleywineÖ Appearance is ruby-reddish brown in color and has a nice clean finishÖ Can still see particles in the beer, which is pretty interestingÖ Probably not worth 9.50 a bottle thoughÖ Prefer the Tremens, but a very good beer nonethelessÖ MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2008
Poured from an 11.2oz bottle and served in a tulip. This beer poured a murky brown with a thick head of lasting tan foam. Bubbly lacing covered the inside of the glass. The aroma of the beer was made up of sweet dark fruits, candi sugar, toasted caramel, earthy yeast, and some mild alcohol. The flavor consisted of cherries, red apples, figs, candi sugar, caramel, followed up by a strong, warming alcoholic finish. The mouthfeel was full-bodied and crisp with an adequate amount of lively carbonation. Not mind blowing or terribly complex, but still very tasty. malrubius (2858) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 28, 2008
11.2 ounce bottle in Westmalle goblet. Hazy brown with lasting flat tan head. Brown sugar, anise, and raisin wine aroma with slight alcohol evap. Caramel and brown sugar sweetness, nice round fruitiness, raisins and ripe cherries, very mild tobacco and spice finish. Medium body and medium low carbo. This is a damn fine beer. I was somewhat skeptical, I admit. I think this is very tasty and pleasant and, of course, strong. larsga (7508) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 26, 2008
Big yellowish beige head. Deep brownish body with small particles. Intense alcoholic aroma of wood, bread, dried fruit, pepper, and faintly metallic hops. Sharp licorice and chocolatey bread and fruit taste with dark wooden notes. Peppery, clean mouthfeel. Harmonic and complex. Considerable alcohol heat. Dry licorice and soft metal afteraste with roasty notes. Very nice. (0.75l bottle from the wine monopoly.) mmmbeer (1418) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 25, 2008
11.2 oz bottle poured into tulip- poured medium brownish amber, white head quickly dissolved away, medium carbonation. Aroma of yeast with some spices, all of which are very light. Hits the mouth with a medium body, alot of sweetness from fruit on the tongue, finish with a note of alcohol and collapses. I kinda like it, itís right down the middle on this one for me.

Delirium NoŽl, is the best cristmas beer i have tasted, and one of favorites in general.
The best thing to doo with this beer is to save it for at least two years. ReademNwheat (174) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2008
From a bottle. Pours a hazy golden color. Aroma of dark fruits, alcohol, and some yeast. Taste is sort of wine like due to the dark fruits. notes of caramel and spice. TikiE (368) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Whoa is the first thing I thought when I had this beer. It pours a dark golden brown with a nice head that eventually disappears. You can taste lots of malts and alcohol in this beer. RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Light brown pour with a small off-white head. Spicy nose and a wonderfully rich dark peppery flavor. Thick mouthfeel and a warm, alcoholic finish. Very nice.
