330ml bottle that's definitely brown but has an egg shell off white covering over it with small purplish specs on the off white cover. Bottle is foiled in purple. Label is like other Delirium brews. Very circusy/psychedelic style art to it. Lots of crazy colors going on with the purple and eggshell off white. Light blue and golden yellow swirls behind a pink elephant lol. It's a remarkable looking bottle. Poured into a Belgian style balloon glass(a fat stemmed tulip)
A - deep ruby red color with a tan colored head that has decent size going on the pour. Settles to a ring of lace that's not that bad until finally fading away to just a swirl of nearly nothing. Moderate stick to the walls of this balloon glass.
S - dark fruit all over. Plum and raisins with small hints of lighter fruit such as soft apple. Belgian style yeast aroma is solid and enjoyable. Aroma has some caramel sweetness and an earthy character in the backdrop.
T - bit hit of dark fruit with a little more apple than the nose suggests. Dark fruit is brilliant. Something that's somewhat like chocolate paired with a weird caramel presence. Belgian yeast remains and really steels the show. Alcohol flavor is there more so in the finish with a unique Belgian Spice throughout the flavor.
M - medium bodied and an almost creamy feel. A lot thicker in the mouth than I'd have given it credit for going in. Smooth in the mouth and enjoyable.
O - I love the bottling and labeling of Delirium brews and this ale backs all that Belgian brilliance up. A must try for any Belgian ale fanatic. Ill drink this any time. There are better Belgian strong dark ales, but this is a fine Belgian dark ale and has a freaking pink elephant on an egg shell bottle and purple foil. This is Belgian at some of its best. Delirium beers are something no beer lover should miss

An absolute favorite ale from Huyghe brewery. Pours a dense dark brown with a big foamed tan head that dies down to a nice layer with excellent lacing. Nose of dark fruits---plum and raisins, light Belgian yeast and Belgian candy malt. Taste is excellent. Plum and raisins sizzle into the flavor profile with this highly carbonated Belgian delicacy, cola and cherry tastes to the side. Aftertaste of cherries and cola. If one ever has a chance I would suggest trying it on tap----an absolutely fantastic Belgian ale.
