cmc619 (501) - California, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Cork popped on its own after I removed the cage. Poured from bottle into Maudite glass. Head about 1", foamy shaving cream type, and pretty pure white; sinks down to a thinnish but persistent layer. Liquid is dark brown with a little bit of red hue in the light. Aroma has a lot of metal in addition to the expected dark fruit, brown sugar, and candy. Flavor is rich and sweet, with a sharp note of bitterness. Spicy, even. Mouthfeel is extremely light and dry for a beer of this strength. No alcohol detected anywhere. Interesting in some ways, but overall a bit harsh.

Rod_beer (59) - DF, MEXICO - JAN 26, 2017
Hazy brown colour, thick beige head with long time lacing. Fruity aroma, like a christmas fruitcake, cherrys, caramel, molasses, cinnamon and malt. Balanced taste between sweet and bitter, very fruity flavor, hints of cinnamon and other spices, caramel, nuts and malt. Medium to full body, slightly astringent sensation on the end, the alcohol taste and sensation is present from the start to the end. Very good, should be available all year long.

DarkMagus (511) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 24, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy reddish color with a thick fluffy white head. No yeast sediment in the glass at all. Aroma of sugar cookie, caramel, spiced rum, dried dark fruits, candi sugar, and a hint of alcohol. Flavors were similar with lots of candi sugar, spices, cookie/biscuit, warming alcohol and a very slight bitterness. Thick and syrupy mouthfeel, very well carbonated, with a slick and sticky mouthfeel. A great beer. I prefer it to the regular DT.

klukas (206) - Rijeka, CROATIA - JAN 7, 2017
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into a trappist glass. Appearance: Blurry copper colour; Rich thick head with “spring” in the centar. Aroma: Dried fruit, alcohol… Palate: Full body, creamy, moderate carbonation with many small nibbling bubbles. Taste: Sweet, caramel, dried fruit, mineral water, roasted or brown sugar, old banana; moderate bitter/sweet alcoholic aftertaste. Overall impression: Enjoyable, tasty, complex, strong.

Grumpelmies (171) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 4, 2017
Bottle. Copper coloured. Nice creamy long lasting head with beautiful lacing. Aroma of yeast, sugar, red (dried) fruits and malts. Taste of caramell, nuts, raisins, plums, yeast and sugar. Manages to be sweet, spicy and bitter at the same time. Highly carbonated. Quite balanced and the alcohol is incorporated very well but it doesn’t put me in a very festive mood. I prefer the other Deliriums.
