Four generations of the Moortgat family have brought together Pilsner malts, Bohemian hops, and a unique yeast strain to create this intense, aromatic and beguiling ale. This Belgian favourite is best enjoyed chilled (40 - 50 F) with discerning friends or good-looking strangers.

Den ikoniserade Duvel har för många agerat inkörsport till den belgiska ölkulturen och det kan finnas en logik i bakgrunden. Den fega smaken kan vara en strategi för att inte skrämma bort smakrädda lagerdrickare ute på tillfälliga upptäcktsfärder i ölhyllan. Någon annan anledning till en såhär själlös smakupplevelse från en av världens ledande ölnationer är annars svår att se.

Straw yellow with hefty white foam head. Aroma of malt and citrus. Taste is fresh fruity with an average bitterness. Just right. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3/2 Bottle - Nice pour, dark orange in colour with minimal white head. Fruity malt smell was pleasant. Tasted somewhat strong, decent texture, felt good drinking it. Didn’t feel as strong as the ABV. Overall good beer offering.

Werckmeister (405) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - MAR 3, 2015
bottle at home. golden shiny clear color, big white head. smells yeasty, citric, grassy. full body, quite bubbly, lots of carbonation, grainy, light astringency, fruity, apples, spices, peppery, some sweetness, rather dry / bubbly grainy finish which is succeeded by a light fruity/sweet taste. good, but a bit boring.

Bardzo dobry reprezentant typowego belgijskiego piwa. Choć wolę triple lub quadruple, raz na jakiś czas można spróbować czegoś bardziej "zwykłego", o ile można tak mówić w przypadku tego piwa.

Hamirubi (114) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2015
33cl. bottle. Heavily commercialized beer from Belgium. Though is has become much sweeter than 10 or 15 years ago, it still remains my favorite strong ale. Great citrus like aroma, golden appearance which is very vivid carbonization. The foam is legendary. The taste and palate too. A great drink.

jamesewelch (129) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - MAR 1, 2015
From 750ml, about $11 at grocery store, poured into Ommegang 16oz tulip glass

Aroma: bread, spice, dough, banana, wheat, spice

Appearance: initially clear, but hazy as the sediment mixes, golden, big frothy white head

Taste: light sweet, light bitter

Palate: light body, lively carbonation

Overall: One of my favorite Belgian beer. Just incredible. Bottles are super easy to find and reasonably priced even when compared to local 22s/750s. Just a great Belgian beer. Can’t taste the alcohol. Very nice yeast characteristics.

puren (146) - POLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Prezentacja: słomkowe, klarowne, trwała piana od drobnej do średniej ładnie zdobi ;
Aromat: pomarańcze, mosiądz, banany, goździki, limonka ;
Smak: landrynki, owoce - cytrusy i brzoskwinie, goryczka świetnie kontruje ;
Odczucie: treściwe, mocno nasycone, finisz kwaskowy i owocowy, alkohol lekko grzeje w przełyk, po pewnym czasie przychodzi goryczka i chwilę trwa ;
Ogólnie: całkiem niezłe, mniej nagazowane byloby jeszcze lepsze

ministru (13) - PORTUGAL - MAR 1, 2015
Bottle .33. Light gold colored. Hoppy and lightly bitter aroma. A tad floral also. Lively carbonation. Frothy to creamy head with good lacing. Medium bready flavored body warmed by it’s alcohol. Creamy floral initial with spicy and slightly dry finish. Excellent tasting example of a "full bear". Mainstream Ale at it’s finest.
