Poured into a goblet. Bottled dates from 2010 poured 11/27/2011.
Appearance: Nothing impressive, pours a cloudy semi-opaque amber. Head is maybe 1/4" settles quick which I do like.
Smell: pretty good but I will tell you this keep smelling it it actually gets better with each initial sniff...your an inhaling a incredible blend of slight chocolate and berry fruits.
Taste: Like I said before slight choicolate and fruits. Not bitter and such a sticky taste that stays with you after finishing each sip.
Mouth: medium carbonation, incredibly smooth.
Overall: Nocturnum is at the top of the food chain when it comes to beer. You will either like it or love it, there is no hate when it comes to drinking Nocturnum.

Poured from the nifty faux ceramic bottle into a goblet. Color is a murky root beer brown with some reddish tint. Fairly aggressive khaki head that leaves a nice spidery lacing on the glass. Aroma is a well-integrated blend of dark fruits (raisins, dates, cherries), toffee, corn flakes, molasses, clove, hot alcohol. Smells rich and spicy, sweet and only subtly roasted. Semi-chewy or moderately thick body, coats the mouth and leaves a lingering sweetness along with an almost soapy residue. Palate recalls same elements as the nose along with medicinal orange, tobacco, chocolates from one of those mixed boxes (maraschino cherry in particular), wood, floral soap, sesame, light roast or green coffee bean. Wonderfully sweet, nutty, and dessert-like yet the alcohol burn intensifies as the sips accumulate. As good as its lighter and better known stablemate. If I was going to nitpick I'd say that the alcohol is a tad hot and spicy, but my evaluation of this characteristic is partly mood-dependent ... Sometimes the Belgian booze hits that spot square on.
