Beer 47 – Delirium Noel

Style: Belgian Strong Dark Ale

Purchased at: 3 Sons

What makes this beer different: Alcohol not hidden very well

Will I be drinking this again: Maybe

Grade: B+

12/25/2009: Merry Christmas!!! I have had both Delirium Tremens and Nocturnum, and both are world class. So of Course I went into this thinking Noel would be more of the same. I also have a couple friends who say this beer is amazing.

The head on this beer was much less than that of other Belgians I have had. The taste is good, but the alcohol is NOT hidden well at all. This to me actually just tastes like a very strong version of Nocturnum, with a little bit of Christmas spice thrown in. Don’t get me wrong the beer is good, but it just wasn’t as smooth as I would have liked.
