Pues sí, pedazo de licor. Casi 3 veces mas que una lager flojita. Oscura, poca espuma. Brutal en boca, frutal pero envuelta en calor alcoholico por todos los lados. Algo de dulzor tambien... Pero alcohol... No esta mal... Pero alcohol... Tomese de postre.

Aromas of toffee and just a bit of fruit - say pear and a slight hint of orange. Hops really subdued,nut some real alcohol sweetness. Almost reminds me of a light cognac. Color is an unusual and attractive light amber orange. Quite sparse off-white head. Taste is a heavy sweetness but very little bitterness. Light to medium body. Thin, slick texture. Light carbonation. Medium length finish with sweetness, toffee and mild fruit. Overall I like this beer. I like how different and unique it is. Almost like a mild, fruity liquor - reminds me a bit of cognac or sherry. Not something I would want every week, but a nice variation to have once in a while. In some respects it’s not very "beer like" with the high alcohol, fruity flavors, sweetness and lack of hop bitterness. Still an interesting outlier; I am surprised how low the overall Ratebeer average rating is for it.

caramel, roasty, resin, leather, alcohol, woody, Very strong, almost astringent in taste. Yet not overpowering. Similar to drinking a boilermaker in feel. Could do to sell in larger portions as the serving is quite small.

Poured from a bottle into a snifter Aroma- Fruit, malt and alcohol Appearance- The color is a dark golden yellow and almost no head Taste- Has a fruit taste and after the second sip the alcohol started to become readily noticeable. Not a bad flavor. Palate- A medium-bodied beer with a low amount of carbonation. Overall- A pretty good beer but it is not a beer that people will want to drink on a regular basis. it is definitely one that beer-fanatics will want to try.

NOTA DE CATA: - Vista: Belzebuth 250ml presenta un color naranja y oro. - Nariz: Aromas genuinos. - Boca: Con un sabor dulce equilibrado con la fuerza del alcohol. Es suave, caliente en la garganta y con una influéncia de lúpulo al final. Sabor complejo y suave. Desde el primer sorbo se aprecio el alcohol duro seguido por notas a malta dulce y miel. Sabor picante al final. Temperatura ideal: 5-6ºC

Z reguły piwa o tej mocy, nie będące RISami czy Barley Wine, omijam szerokim łukiem. Ale w tym wypadku, z racji tego, że był to prezent i butelka miała objętość 250ml, postanowiłem spróbować... Kolor ciemnozłoty z całkiem sporą, ale dziurawą i szybko opadającą pianą. Zapach słodki - herbatnikowy, alkoholowy. W smaku, na szczęście, alkohol nie grał dominującej roli. Słodkie, nieco nawet karmelkowe ujawniało alkohol poprzez pieczenie w przełyku. Więcej doznań raczej nie było, ale nastawiałem się raczej na większy problem z pijalnością.

Attractive dark amber, clear with foamy off-white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is caramel, orange, cereal and alcohol heat. For the first couple of sips, I wondered who needs a blond ale this strong. But then it hit me, or maybe the 13 percent ABV did (down from Jeanne D’Arc). Really extensive flavor range as it warms, with nuts and grass joining the fruit and sweet malt. A little rough, but it opens up given time, and proves strong ale doesn’t need to be dark. I’m pleasantly surprised.

Bottled. A clear orange beer with a medium slowly desappearing white head. Aroma is malty, caramel and fruity. Taste is also malty caramel. Strong alcohol notes. A bit unbalanced for my taste
