My first Delirium! 2012 batch.
Pours out a deep amber with ruby highlights throughout and 2 fingers of an off-white head.
The aroma is packed with dark fruits like figs, plums and raisins, some nice cherry notes, fruity esters coming from the Belgian yeast, toffee and caramel and coriander and orange peel with some light spiciness.
The taste is also very dark fruit forward with a lot of cherry in there as well. The coriander and orange peel are more prominent in the taste and there are some nice toffee and caramel notes to round it all out. Definitely a sweeter beer, but not cloying in any way.
The body is medium-heavy (although lighter for the style) and there is a nice creamy mouthfeel with a decent amount of carbonation. There is no alcohol in the taste or smell, but a slight warming as it goes down.
This is a solid example of the style, but nothing that will blow anyone away. Worth checking out for sure!

I know some people like the foil on top, but I had a very hard time getting to the cage through the foil. To each his own. Really cool white bottle though.
Pours dark ruby that lets a miniscule amount of light through. Finger of head with tight bubbles and good lacing.
Belgian yeast, dark fruits, plums and raisins, bit of booze, and has some malty goodness as well.
Sweet and yeasty up front, burnt biscuit mid mouth. Some caramel notes thrown in there. Slightly sour on the back end which wasn’t expected. Biscuit and alcohol aftertaste.
Thick and full. Rich and filling with high bubbly carbonation.
Overall a very good Belgian Dark. Sets itself a part with the slight sourness and has a really nice mouth.
