I've had this so many times, I can't believe I never reviewed it. 2007 vintage 750ml bottle (I've cellared since I bought it at the end of '07) poured into my Delirium Tremens snifter, Delirium Nocturnum is ruddy brown with a big light tan head that leaves very light, scattered lace.

Smell is very bright and fruity on the nose, grapes and little spicy.

Taste is rather full as well, big fruit esters complementing the sugary dark malt beautifully. In fact, it doesn't taste dulled at all flavor wise in spite of it's age, just very smooth. Without morphing into a whole other animal, it's all I could ask for in an ~ 3 year old beer, fantastic really, aged or not.

Mouthfeel is very smooth, dried by the ABV and highly digestible.

Drinkability is shamefully high. All that waiting, and I'm fighting myself to not gulp it down. One of the best BSDA's I've ever had, phenomenal.

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.
