Bottle was aged 3 years, buttload of sediment but very tasty when aged

Dried fruit aromas, dark pitted fruits, spice, dark sugars and a suspicion of fruitcake, traces of alcohol and some earthiness on the nose. Pours brilliant chestnut under a 1” white foam cap that slowly dissipates to a thin whisp of a head that never the less produces lace. Also has some legs. Fruit cake components start the palate with fig to dates, a hint of toffee, prune, dark cake, a little spice (coriander and anise) alcohol and an earthy hop finish. There is also some warming but the alcohol is not solventy or hot. It is surprisingly light for all it has going on and the alcohol levels – medium to medium high on the body and medium carbonation. A big beer with the presence of a port or a bourbon.

Delirium Noël has a think, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, rust-read appearance, and a good bit of sediment suspended throughout. The aroma is of slightly fruity, sweet, brown bread crust, and the flavor is the same, with candy sugar and very low bitterness. There is also a strong spiced holiday bread component. Mouthfeel is between light and medium, and this beer finishes a little boozy.

I'm not impressed with these Belgian golden strong ales. The taste is basic pilsner like with some spice & metallic? A+ All the way for the bottle though, its one of the few that I keep around.

Very drinkable with a nice aroma and good head. Like all Delerium bottles... expensive and for the $$$ you can find better value.
