3.76/5  rDev -6.2%
look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Looks a bit like dark pond water. The yeast flakes are so enormous, that it really looks like a pond. Initially lots of head but quickly dissipates to nothing. Dark cola in color with nearly zero rising carbonation.
S: intense, nostril opening, fruity, sweet whiskey, but it really most resembles a tootsie roll.
T: a more intense dubbel, but not as heavy. relatively tart.
M: Low carbonation
O: Pretty good. Flavor certainly shifts as it warms up. But overall, pretty nice.

4.04/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

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

look: 5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

330ml bottle from The Cave, Glasgow (£3.89):
Dark ruby to brown with a thumb sized, bubbly tan head on top that also has touches of brown. Retention is very good considering it's 8.5%.

Light hops with a tonne of grape and some lighter fruits including apples and berries. There is some peach too and a bubbly, lively aroma with some sweetness, caramel and sugar.

Again hoppy and again a lively beer with some light fruits consisting mainly of grapes with some peach and apple in the mix too. The beer is a lot lighter than I had imagined before trying it and it was pretty sweet too with some caramel malts and cherries towards the end.

Smooth beer with moderate carbonation and good drinkability on top of a lively body that is about medium. There is some nice sweet fruits and a dry & tarty finish,

Very nice with a great, smooth feel that went down easy considering the high alcohol content and had some very pleasant fruit touches. Not quite as good Delirium Tremens but a very good beer none the less and one that I'm likely to pick up again at some point.

3.8/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A beautiful dark reddish brown colour with ruby highlights. 3 inches of head consisting of large bubbles that gradually lowers. Not a lot of lacing.

There is a strong cherry and bread aroma. The smell of plastic appears as the ale warms.

The taste follows the smell. Cherry fruitness and the taste of maple wood. Lots herbs in there. Perhaps tarragon. Some yeast in the taste too.

Smooth feel but slightly watery for a Belgian strong ale. Very dry and tarty.

Overall an interesting, complex dry Belgian dark ales.

4.45/5  rDev +11%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

This beer poured from a bottle into a glass and had a full 3 inch head for about 5 minutes. It eventually settled to a 1/2 inch head that leaves moderate lacing against the glass.

The smell is interesting and complicated. I smell sweet, pungent fruit up front (raisins or plums) which mixes quickly with roasted, dark barley like a stout. Those two aromas are followed quickly by slightly bitter spices - like pumpkins spice and hops mixed together.

Taste is just as unique and very similar to the smell. The taste is a little more balanced and sweeter than the smell. The alcohol is well hidden and not overwhelming at all.

The mouthfeel is very soft which makes the brew easy to drink. Bubbles are present in the glass but the carbonation is kept to a minimum which makes the beer very smooth.

Overall this beer is very smooth, unique and powerful at 8.5% ABV. A MUST TRY for any beer drinker. With balance and originality like this beer has, the brewer is onto something and deserves credit and attention.

4.18/5  rDev +4.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

Red-brown with some considerable haze. Head is easy; less than a half-inch. Loose lacing in straggles.

Perfumey apple, grape, and plum. Some pear, some raisin. Yeasty and lightly roasted. Exceptional nose.

Not as perfumey, but still florally fruity. Lots of plum and nutty yeast and grape notes. Supple maltiness offers some light roast amidst the halfway sweetness. Notes of apple and tanginess. Not full-on. Has a lot of yeasty esters. Almost has a lightly tart berry finish.

Soft and delicate mouthfeel. Feels milky. Carbonation feels low. Just interesting enough.

Love this beer. I need to drink this more often.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

P: 11.2oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: Dark brown with a few lighter highlights when held to the light with a creamy two finger tan head. Just a little lacing.

S: Earthy, grassy yeast is in the forefront with a little caramelized sugar. Some banana and spice. No hop aroma.

T: Just like Tremens, this tastes a lot like it smells. Initially the earthy yeasty flavors dominate your tongue but it has a slightly caramel-like flavor in the finish, which I really like. Raisins and rum as well, they are easy to taste as the beer warms in the glass. A hint of alcohol in the finish as well.

M: Fairly high carbonation, moderate mouthfeel. Flavors linger a touch but it's mostly just the sweetness.

O: A nice easy drinking beer with subtle complexity. The mix of flavors is nice and I've found that caramel sugary finish to be quite pleasing. This would be my preference in the Delirium lineup. Simple yet complex and easy to drink.

gifted 11.2 oz bottle

a: the pour into a small St. Bernardus chalice reveals a lively carbonation that produces a finger-width layer of off-white carbonation, the beer itself a grade b amber in color with some ruby hues showing through, retains a nice layer and ring

s: the dark belgian malt nose features complex sugars and sweet raisins, plum, candied red apple and cherry, glimpses of sweet clementine and yeasty spice, - malt sugars, wood, and fruit combine to recreate the sensation of a bourbon cocktail - just a touch of alcohol, even some tropical juices sneak their way in, hops papery and grassy, a complex and striking nose once warmed

m: carbonation pushes into the high range, lively on the tongue but not abrasive, body light-moderate

t: the palate reveals a blend of raisin, plum and complex toasted sugars, sweet and fruity dark malts, a pale malt underpinning things the sugars a bit and keeps things crisp, hop flavors of dry, aged grass impart a mild bitterness to the drying finish, lingering flavors of dark fruit skins

o: a great dark ale, probably the first route of exposure to the style for many, that is often ignored because of its ubiquity - but that’s definitely worth a retry

4.13/5  rDev +3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Bottle purchased from Frugal McDougals in Nashville, TN, poured into Tulip.

Appearance: Dark amber color, one finger slightly off white head.

Aroma: Signature Belgian yeast smell, very fruity and citrusy with way more of a dark

Taste: Dark SWEET Fruits. Initial taste is very sweet followed by a sort of dark citrus, slightly bitter (yet smooth) aftertaste. This is a good beer. Basically, it tastes like you would imagine a Dark Tremens to taste like. What Chimay Blue is to a Rochefort 10, is a Tremens to a Nocturnum. It's basically your typical belgian golden ale with a dark twist. The alcohol is disguised by the dark fruits and sweetness of the beer, which I could say of most Belgian Strong Ales (Tremens, Duvel, La Chouffe, Draak, etc..). For an 8.5%, dangerously sessionable.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and dry. Very sweet.

Overall: I may prefer a Tremens more as of now, which may be due to having it on tap at Delirium Café in Brussels, but every time I have a Nocturnum I like it more. It may be growing on me and become a regular purchase. A very smooth, refreshing, dangerously sweet beer.

3.81/5  rDev -5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Dark brown color. About a finger of head. Creamy lacing that crept down the glass while I drank this brew. Above average carbonation throughout.

Smell: Leafy greens, figs, yeast, slight dark fruits, pears, apricots, and some faint tobacco. The smell was not overpowering but overall very pleasant.

Taste: grapes, dark fruits, slight tangerines, plums, and exotic yeast. A very balanced taste which is dangerously drinkable. Aftertaste is a medium dry alcohol taste.

Mouthfeel: Complex mix of sweetness, smoothness, and dryness.

Overall: A very good dark belgian ale. There are others that I would recommend before this one, especially considering the price tag, but this is a very good brew.

look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

750 ml. bottle poured into a chalice... and then a tulip. Because it's a big bottle. The cork has "2.010" on it... I'm guessing this is 2010 vintage?

Dark brown body with crimson and garnet hues in the light, topped by a thick tan head of a finger width. Not a lot of lacing left behind, but the body of this beer is beautiful. Constant carbonation jets from the bottom of the glass.

The nose is quite boozy but still has plenty of richness. Particularly, some dried spices come to mind, as well as dark fruit (figs, plums, raisins) and some overall caramel/toffee notes. This beer is seductive in both appearance and smell. I've had one Belgian Dark Strong Ale (Unibroe Maudite) that had a similar nose, but this is much more full and... dare I say... nocturnal? than others. A bit mild, though.

DN's taste is robust, smooth, and refreshing all at once. It is a mood beer for sure. Ripe with dark fruit, toffee, caramel, and fusel alcohols (not displeasing), this beer is absolutely for dark winter nights (like in KY right now...) and has plenty of warmth on the finish. There are some tart green apple notes that highlight the middle of the palate. Excellent stuff.

The mouthfeel is fairly heavy - but the zesty, effervescent carbonation provides a kind of palate cleansing not found in many beers of this style. Lingering flavors of bittersweet chocolate, alcohol, and toffee on the palate remind you that this is a big beer, not for beginners.

Maybe this isn't the best example of the style, but it remains a classic for good reason, I think. This is a big beer and is to be taken slowly. Definitely worth putting in the cellar or trying fresh.

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!

A: Clear chestnut with 2 fingers head, settling to a thin skim across the top

S: Caramels and sweet toffees with a solid funky yeastiness. Smells like fruit leather with a boozy run ester.

T: Belgium yeast balanced with maltiness, sudtle mineral notes and dry fruity.

M: Thin to Medium bodied with low carbonation

O: Easy to drink back, with a solid Belgium yeast presences with fruity notes and malt sweetness. A good beer, but not a great beer on account of the mild flavours and smell.

Bougie thing to quaff this bougie beer from my bougie pink elephant. But I do love the glass, and the beer, it ain’t bad either, even if it is a mood brew.

STYLE: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

ABV: 8.5%

LOOK: Dark mirror. The only light in the house that’s on is the one in the dining room, that and my laptop. There’s a nice reflection from my most-stolen-in-America tulip, with credit to this dark, dark brew. Beachy thin head with a light caramel tinge. Subtle carbonation.

NOSE: Roasted raisins, molasses, sugar cookies, apple cider vinegar.

MOUTH: A recent trip to Napa clued me in to a wine secret. That some of the better wines are better enjoyed after opening up in a decanter – for up to 24 hours. I’ve done the hour-before-guests come thing, but a day, that seemed overkill. Until I tried it. It’s the same principle for some of the better Belgians, including this one. Honey, malted chocolates, plums, dried cranberries. There’s more here, obviously, but that’s not the point. Somewhere the sweet yeasts are hiding, maybe with the tucked-away ABV, and notwithstanding the complex flavor profile and top-class warming mouth, I need a touch more tartness for balance.

11.2 ox beer was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It is a crimson mahogany color with some clarity when held up to a light. There are tiny little bubbles coming up through the glass top. There is some yeast sediment that has settled to the bottom of the glass.

Smell: caramel, molasses, cherries, tobacco, spiciness, boozy alcohol, and yeasty notes too.

Taste: super sweet delicious. All of the above aromas blended well together.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, low to medium carbonation, warm boozy alcohol, spicy, and low to medium bodied.

Overall: Pretty solid BDSA that I have enjoyed many times before, right now and many more in the future.

Poured into an Innis and Gun glass

A- Pours a dark ruby. Had a thick head at first, but it didn't last that long. Lacing evident.

S- Smells sweet and spicy, with some of that wild yeast scent that's usually a sign of a good beer.

T- Started off tasting sweet, like dates or figs, but the more I drink it the more flavors are evident. Sweet, dark bread, spices, fruit, wild yeast, caramel, molasses.

M- Not as heavy as one would expect from this style. Goes down very easy without being too light.

O- What I like about this beer is that there really is more flavor as you drink it. It's definitely worth getting, and I know I'm getting this one again.

750 ml bottle poured into a Deschutes Snifter.
Bottle dating of 1-2012. Codes of 16:47 guessing thats a time stamp, and L09=12073 I have no idea what that means.

A- Pours a deep ruby red brown color with fizzy light carmel colored head that quickly dissipates to a ring at the edge of the glass.

S- Wow. Spicy Belgian yeast hits you in the nose first. Lots of sweet dark fruits follow, raisins come to mind. Also plums maybe some figs. Nice sweet caramel aromas.

T- Tasty to say the least. Flavors of toasted dark breads mixed with the dried darker fruits adds to the spicy Belgian yeast. Well done.

M- Very easy drinking considering the ABV. The alcohol is hidden well. Moderately high carbonation, but its not overwhelming.

O- A fantastic offering from this Brewery. If one is looking to get into Belgian Beers this should be a first stop. With out a doubt an easy drinking true Belgian Beer.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The appearance had a plum like color in natural lighting, when held up a deep amber appeared in a sunburst fashion. The head poured a white/yellow tint and retained itself throughout the beer.

The smell had the fruity/estery aroma that you would expect from a belgian ale. I could almost trick myself into a cherry like under tone.

The mouthfeel had a dry finish and bitter to the tongue almost tart.

The flavor began with a nice caramel coating in taste developing into the "fruityness" of the natural yeast. I finished tart much I would describe like a sour cherry

Overall this is a world class beer and a great Belgian Ale in all respects.

A: Pours a dark ruby/mahogany color with 3 fingers of tan head that retains at half a fingers worth for a long while

S: Dark fruits, sweet malts, Belgian yeast, and alcohol

T: Follows the nose. Some sweet and very lightly roasted dark malts start it off, with the Belgian yeast and fruitiness rushing in shortly afterwards. Alcohol finishes it off, adding some more fruitiness

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid BSDA with a lot of pale/Tremens-like character with the fruits and sweetness but just enough light roast and candi sugar to make it dark. This is up there as one of my favorite BSDA's for sure

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Purchased & Drank on 12/30/2012
Cost: $4.39 at my local grocery store
Temperature: ~50 to 55 F on pour, 60 - 65 for the last few sips

A - This deep amber beer was poured into a tulip glass. Held up to the light, garnet tones gleamed through the slightly opaque liquid. The 2.5" head held up firmly. Lacing was noticeable while drinking, though a bit lackluster. Very attractive beer.

S - A strong, sweet malt aroma was the first scent to hit my nose. A hint of milk chocolate followed with that of indeterminate sweet spice. As pleasant as these odors were, they were not as exciting as the look and I was left less than overwhelmed.

T - I had tried this beer years ago and remembered liking it more than I did on this occasion. The aromas of malt and milk chocolate were still there in the taste, especially the malt. The unknown sweet spice tasted of clove, though it was not pronounced. The alcohol was cleverly masked on the first few sips, but became more prevalent as the beer warmed to the point of unpleasantness at the end of tasting. There was a clear, enjoyable taste of bitter melon on the palate during the second half of tasting.

M - There was strong carbonation that hit the tip and edges of my tongue, but quickly faded and was replaced by a smooth, slightly clinging feel. Unfortunately, this led to the taste's rather quick abatement.

O - This is definitely an attractive beer, first and foremost, with a gorgeous color and full head. While I can definitely say I enjoyed it and would drink it again in the future, the aroma and taste disappeared too quickly to make this anything more than slightly above average.

I'm sad that this is my first review, but here goes:

The characteristics (color, smell) of the beer were nice right up to the point of tasting. There was an overwhelming metallic taste. I fear this was an off bottle, nonetheless I was forced to offer the remainder to the Plumbing Gods.
