Beer Tasting: Brouwerij Huyghe Delirium Nocturnum
This is a Belgium Strong Dark Ale from Brouwerij Huyghe of Melle Belguim. This time Jeremy and Jackie brought it with them one night when they visited. Thanks! BTW, how did you know I like beer ;-) Have you tasted this beer? Let us know what you think. As a suggestion, try to keep the review as brief as possible for each of the following: appearance; smell; taste; mouthfeel; and drinkability. Appearance Adam: reddish brown hue, clear, somewhat persistent head Jeremy: deep reddish mahogany, thin even & long lasting head Smell Adam: complex Belgian, figs, vanilla Jeremy: very unique complex nose, floral/fruity scent Taste Adam: sour sweet, yeasty, no alcohol, but doesn't live up to the nose Jeremy: smooth for 8.5 abv, a bit bitter, very little hops Mouthfeel Adam: dry disappears to nothing Jeremy: lots of bubbles Drinkability Adam: yeah, nothing to stop you Jeremy: very drinkable, goes down quickly Seconds? Adam: probably, but, not much more than that Jeremy: eh...not bad, but...not great, worth trying, but, probably wouldn't purchase again Jackie (via Adam): Jackie liked it alot.
