750 ml corked bottle, pours a beautiful dark honey color with a creme colored, medium-sized head that fades slowly. Medium activity carbontation. The nose is one thing: banana nut bread. Its almost uncanny how wonderfully bready and sweet this is. The taste is mixed and hard to put my thumb on. So much happens at once, its hard to tell if the sweet, doughy part or the earthy hop is first, because both tastes seem to overlap at the same time. The alcohol is very noticeable during the finish and for awhile on the stomach. The palate is smooth and silky, not acidic or bubbly at all. A wonderful seasonal beligian. To this date I havent had the regular Delirium Tremens, so I cant compare the two but this one is a winner.

I had the last bottle in a Belgian place up here. The nose had some fruit and spice in it, and the flavor was full of something in between grapefruit and sour grapes. It also had plenty of spice, with a body not unlike an oktoberfest. I couldnt detect the alcohol in it at all, it was quite wonderful.

750ml. Since it had been a while since I had had Tremens or Nocturnum I really cant tell you if they were similar in taste, but it sure did remind me a bunch of memories of having them. Great holiday beer, very spicy, and had less of an alcoholic taste then I would have expected considering the high alcohol content.

Another outstanding Belgium beer. From a bottle with my boss. Aroma is spiced banana bread, as is the taste. A bot of malt, novices might say that it was too sweet, but I loved it. Citruses, low carbonation, and some cinnamon and clove spice. Great. Thanks Dad for bringing this down from Cleveland.

On tap and from bottles. Easily the best holiday beer seeing that theyre not concerned with how many spices they can cram in there. If I want nutmeg, Ill drink egg nog. if I want a solid, matly, holiday belgian ale, then Ill drink this stuff.

750ml bottle. Pours clear amber with a pretty robust, tan head. Really, really spicy aroma. Taste is fruity and spicy. A nice Christmas beer.

Pours reddish brown with a bready head. Awesome label with the pink elephant wearing a santa hat. The aroma is full of fruits, figs, and Belgian sweetness. Tastes of plums, prunes, peaches, and some spices. The alcohol is noticable and warming. A smokiness lingers. A great winter warmer.

Featured at "steal the glass" night at Capital ale house in Innsbrooke. Nice reddish brown body with a small white head. Aroma of citrus and apple juice, somewhat like wine. Slightly sweet, faint detection of alcohol. Warms as it goes down, all you need is one sip to be sure that this one will get the job done. A pleasant surprise to say the least. I would definitely get this one again next winter.
