Day 19 (#30Beers30Days)

Probably one of the coolest bottles I've seen.

Longest week ever…well, since last week anyway. Let’s get delirious! Day 19’s brew is the Delirium Nocturnum.  It’s a Belgian strong dark ale, which are known to be super malty with a bready/yeasty and sugary aroma. It’s brewed by the Huyghe brewery; they’ve been at this since 1654.

Make sure you’re an a$$hole like me: send the inappropriate pint glass back for a proper tulip or snifter.  Delirium Nocturnum is an aromatic beer – it’s spicy and almost peppery with a hint of licorice.  The appropriate glass will showcase that.

This beer is a beast: 8.5% ABV, darkest style as far as Belgians go, rich, and complex in flavor. It kinda tastes like overly spicy, nearly burnt raisin bread. There’s a bit much going on with this beer.  It was, however, nicely carbonated with a fizzy head that disappeared quite quickly.  It’s also a beautiful, deep red color.

My last word on this Delirium Nocturnum Belgian Strong Ale: don’t drink it on an empty belly. It’s pretty bada$$.  And I mean that in a good way. I’d give this one a solid B…I could do without the licorice.
