4.03/5  rDev +4.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4

the 750ml bottle says delirium christmas (as opposed to noel) and the cork says 2004. great appearance. dark crystal crimson, bubbly as hell with an impressive solid foam, light beige head.

smells decent, strong. i could actually smell it before i even started pouring. unfortuanately for this beer though, the last belgian strong dark ale i had the pleasure of quaffing was maudite. this one is fairly one-dimensional in comparison. typical scents, nothing surprising. dates dominate, caramelized sugar, candy apple, raisins, yeast.

the taste and mouthfeel save this one. it does not taste like 10%. definately strong, but so smooth and light as a feather, tap dancing on the tongue, interesting and fun to drink. half-way through the bottle i am feeling it. after the last pour, it takes on a darker, thicker hue, and tastes creamy. quite a difference in mouthfeel, but still wonderful. this is my first delirium, i look forward to trying the rest.
