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

A: gave it a good down-the-center pour, and got a deep brown beer with a fat head of fine tan foam

S: some dark fruits, chocolate-smelling malts (like dry cocoa)

T: interesting amalgam of chocolatey and dark fruit flavors; subdued bitterness, but not overly sweet either - well-balanced; tastes of expected Belgian-y yeasts

M: surprisingly thin - expected a little more body/syrupiness; high carbonation (maybe from my pour?) added to the lightness - not a bad thing in-and-of itself, but also not quite what I expected from a BSDA

O: I just tried the Delirum Tremens, and it came up a slightly lesser Duvel. This beer bears immediate comparison to Gulden Draak, and again, for me at least, it falls slightly short - on its own merits, a must try - but as a BSDA, maybe a little too light on the palate and flavor profile. I expect a heartier ale in a dark Belgian.
