The Beast is a seducer - accomodating, complicated, powerful, dark and created to last the ages. Beyond this, it’s futile to attempt to describe Him. He will unveil Himself differently to each of His followers. The mark is in His constitution. Brewed with two-row malted barley, honey malt, and imported Belgian specialty grains (aromatic, pale wheat, roasted wheat, and Special B), hops (Magnum, Galena, Saaz, Hallertau, Tettnang, and Hersbrucker), brewing sugars (raisins, dates, blackstrap molasses, alfalfa honey, turbinado, and dark Belgian candy sugar), water, Belgian yeast and another hellion of a yeast strain.OG: 1.138

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - APR 19, 2004
Dark reddish brown coloured. Very fruity aroma. Very sweet and fruity flavour. Some hoppy spiciness. The alcohol is well hidden. Very powerful.

MrRomero (1975) - Nolanville, USA - APR 10, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2007 Poured a clear ruby color with a thick tan head. Big malt aroma. Taste is sweet with the malt up front with a cotton candy flavor. Packs a punch. Could be a little less sweet but overall, it’s very good.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - APR 7, 2004
22oz Bomber No Date My bottle poured a clear dark cherry color with minimal head and low retention. Lots of alcohol in the aroma along with fruit and sugar. Body is smooth yet a bit thin with low carbonation. Flavor is heavy on the alcohol unfortunately with a medicinal quality. Very sweet with some yeast notes also. Has an unpleasant lingering alcohol sugary thing that I don't care for. This would have been better if it were less powerful.

guzzler67 (1494) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - APR 4, 2004
Dark copper appearance with a fairly large head and very little lacing. Yeasty, biscuit-like aroma with a caramel topping. Lush, fruity taste and a candy sugar sweetness that leads to a light alcohol burn in the finish.

BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - MAR 29, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2006 Massive overripe fruit, candy sugar and alcohol flavor. I could feel the warmth going right down to my belly! The alcohol is not subtle in this one, it tastes like burniing! But it was still great overall for the style.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Bottle. Dark brown, thick-looking. Candy-sugar taste, thick maltiness. Apples, pear, intense sweetness. Goes well with the cheese queadilla kind of thing that JoeT and JenT make. My only complaint is something a bit off in the aftertaste. What a night this was, with two drinks above 15% and a 20%!

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2004
Pours a dark reddish copper with a thick biege head. Aroma is sweet, fruity and spicey. Nice full and thick mouthfeel. Dark fruits,spices, caramel, honey, and mild hops on the tongue. Very good job of covering up the alcohol. I was really suprised by this beer. I didn't not expect it to be nearly as good as it was. This was a great beer with lots of flavor.

brownaler (378) - Topsail Beach, North Carolina, USA - MAR 28, 2004
An awesome beer! The flavor is like a belgian in front, but finishes like an imperial stout. I consider myself fortunate to only have had this beast.

SoylentBlack (123) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAR 27, 2004
Not a good looking beer, almost no aroma, but suprisingly smooth for a beer with so much alcohol content (15.7% !!!). Not as intense as "Arrogant Bastard" but delicious.

I see I received one of the bottles the workers were screaming and swearing at the labeling equipment. Double labeled and partial backing on BOTH labels. Topaz/ruby color with a smaller lid of yellow/tan bubbles. Near eerie, moss looking lace. Initial fleshy aroma, thankfully, driven off and replaced by a pleasant berry nose, with some toffee, alcohol and caramel. Quite nice after the initial greeting. As this warm the aroma just keeps getting better. Thinner start and with some light fruit including raisins and melon. WHAM, BAM... the alcohol take center stage demanding attention. This is no aside. This is prima donna, get out of my way, on your knees, thank you sir may I have another, got me by the short hairs, look at me now, aria! After pulling myself back up to the desk, this has warmed slightly and this "beast" becomes more warming and spicy (cloves and cinnamon). But what a greeting. This is major league stuff that you must be patient with. "Hoot" as Gusler states is is damn near understated. Flavors, as it warms, range from pineapple to bubblegum, with rich caramel as a backdrop. My god! the burps actually burn. The lights are becoming dim... must.. retain.. consciousness.. to.. finish.. rating....This really is one of the funnest brews I have had in some time. The stars are bright tonight! I can't fell my tongue!!!
