UPDATED: SEP 2, 2005 Gratuitous use of alcohol here??? Nothing special, stings almost, has an ok malt backbone. Lots of flavor, but Im not rating it that high in flavor because it is all due to the tremendous amount of alcohol. Has some flowery alcohol perfume notes that begin to taste like liquor rapidly. Complexity is lacking. Smells a rum raisin ice cream float with lots of rum and extra sugar in it. Is too carbonated as well.

This is definately a nightcap! Very alcoholic in both aroma, flavour and aftertaste. Well balanced for such a strong beer, both sweet and spicey. This goes for both the bottled and the canned version.

I can understand some people like this beer but I think that the alcohol level does not let you get the taste, it is too strong. By the way it looks it seems to be made for those guys that want to seem more MACHO MEN getting stoned. To rude, don´t try it.

I am almost afraid to give this a less than average rating, due to the fact that evaluating the “Lord of the Flies” may result in my tortures demise.-- My beer was the newer and lighter 13% abv. This beer poured a majestic golden color with a large frothy white head. It had an orangey grain alcohol nose and an oily palate, but the flavor was yeasty and sweet, like molasses. I guess this sweetness was the attempt at hiding the alcohol. Belzebuth is a decent brew and is definitely worth a try due to its distinct personality; but over all I was not so impressed. – I did get a buzz from drinking this beer.

bottle from toronado - hard to describe, extremely dfferent beer, the alcohol is hidden rather well but it is very sweet and malty, i dont think i would drink this very often because of the flavor, but it definitely be tried out and experienced

This brew pours a small head of quickly diminishing small fizzy bubbles. It had a light orange brown color. The aroma contained notes of malt, hops and a discernable alcohol content of medium strength. It had a stong alcohol flavor that was very over powering the other flavors. It was smooth yet burned as it went down. Truely a devilish brew!

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUN 23, 2003
Golden in color,small head that faded quite fast,the aroma was malty sweet with a definate hint of alcohol,with some mild hints of caramel and mild fruit tones as well.the taste was much the same as the aroma with a big alcohol punch.with the after taste being malty and mildly hopped,and then the alcohol kicks in again giving a very warm feeling going down.IMO this is definately not a brew that i care to have again.I definately know there are better brews out there in this style.Thankfully i have only one to try thanks to my Bro-In-Law

An interesting taste, very sweet with a slight vanilla taste and interesting twinge with the yeast. Alcohol is very warming,especially as it warms up. Glad I tried it, but not something that I would drink often.

BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 29, 2003
Amber colored with a small fizzy white head. Smells like wet dog. Sweet alcohol taste. Has a smokey or marinated taste. Definitly a sipper.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2003
Bottled. Ginger-amber colour, rising fine gas but not sustaining a head. Sweet malt aroma drowned out by ethanol. You’ve got to try to pick the flavours between the sweet and the burn. Course burnt palate with a long sweet tail. The moral is, if your going to be this big, be subtle about it...this isn't.
