Delirium's Christmas brew is brown-shaded ale that has some Belgian yeast character, but makes an overall malty impression. The feel is soft, though it isn't as ultra fat and velvety as some Belgians - there's a bit more carbonation. Dry, earthy, and spicy yeast character followed by nutty caramel. Toasted grains and toasted sugar notes. Balance is mostly sweet. This Strong Ale goes about its business very easily.

Off white bubbly head stayed on a very dark brown, luscious, still body.
Stewed fruit, caramel, orange & Christmas spices aroma.
Medium bodied, sparkling on the palate, thinning to the back with a prickly finish.
Sweet caramel tastes with over ripe fruit, spices, candied orange, demerara & a long tangy, fruity finish.
Excellent Christmas Ale

CraftyHare (128) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2017
330ml bottle pours dark red-brown with thick creamy off-white head. Aromas of caramel malt, molasses, spices and alcohol. Tastes of dried fruit, brown sugar, Belgian yeast, spices and cognac. High carbonation, but thin body has trouble hiding the 10% alc vol. Not as layered as I would expect for a xmas strong ale. Cool label artwork though.

Tjeerd (630) - GERMANY - NOV 30, 2017
Dit is een kerstbier zoals je dat verwacht. Kruidig als een goede glühwein, maar belgisch bier zoals alleen belgisch bier kan zijn.

De sabor amargo pero con suavidad. Espuma poco duradera y con bastante aroma a malta. Una delicia para los paladares exquisitos para beber a diario.

meccahh69lol (366) - New Haven, Connecticut, USA - NOV 18, 2017
This one was from our favorite bar- a 2010 version, so pretty aged and poured into a little tulip glass. Appearance is a dark red/brown and a nice smooth palate. The aroma is malty and with a vague holiday vibe to it; the taste has some strong alcohol on top and then some spices and a toasty/bready flavor towards the end. Good for drinks with friends on a Wednesday after officially becoming a Costco person.

Shark_Pants (769) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2017
330ml bottle BB Nov 19. Slightly hazy, deep amber with big off white head. Sweet candi sugar aroma, caramel, strawberries, spicy phenolics. The taste has big strawberry notes, caramel, some grassy and peppery notes. Full bodied, nice prickly carbonation.
