Nebraska state law requires bars to be cooking a kettle of soup at the time any beer is available.
Delirium Nocturnum from Belgium
This Belgium beer comes from Brouwerij Huyghe. Don’t even ask me how to pronounce it. I have no idea. I do, however, know I like this beer!
Delirium Nocturnum is a Belgian Strong Dark Ale with a kick. ABV is 8.5%!
It pours a dark amber and the head is thick and bubbly, as you can see. This beer is highly carbonated so it’s crisp in it’s mouthfeel. The nose is sweet malt, dark fruits like black cherry, coriander and maybe orange peel. The flavor is the same but more intense. There’s a touch of mocha and licorice on the back. It’s strong and boozy but the alcohol is hidden by the flavors well. As it warms a bit, the black cherry comes out even stronger.
If you are looking for something more interesting and a sipper, look for this. I found it at HyVee Spirits.
OK, maybe I went overboard a bit… But after being in bed for almost a month and not having a beer for a little longer than that, I had to make a beer run.
As you see, I don’t always purchase “BIG” craft beers. I also like good, easy drinkers. When it’s hot and I’m parched, Rolling Rock and Modelo are excellent thirst quenchers that you can drink faster than the higher ABV or darker beers.
And I’m not a fan of these hard seltzer things, but I like peach flavor so I’ll try just about anything with peach in it. These weren’t expensive so I decided to try it.
I like this! It’s crisp and refreshing and perfect for a hot summer day. It’s easy to drink and not really sweet, like some of those other seltzers can be.
