COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Born out of the depths of hell, Beelzebeer occasionally rears its ugly head in breweries across the land. Whenever Batch #666 occurs, so does a devilishly evil brew - it’s embodiment can take on many forms...you hold one of these now. Lucifer was well served by his lieutenant, serving throughout the centuries, willing unassuming souls towards the darkness, towards the inky blackness of this very bottle."

Pours a deep brown pushing almost black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of vanilla, earthy notes, dark fruits and toffee. Flavor of toffee, nutty, dry yet malty.

Bomber thanks to rateyourpoison for sharing! Pours a deep brown with a small light tan head. Aroma is sweet and slightly burnt toast with some dark fruit notes, chocolate, a bit candied fruit. Flavor is a mix of dark chocolate. milk chocolate and dark fruits. Roasty and sweet from start to finish. A touch spicy in the finish. Mediumish body and a softer carbonation. Interesting beer, a bit straightforward, not a ton of complexity but smooth and very drinkable.

22oz bottle from the brewery. Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Malty nose, caramel, toffee, chocolate, and a woody/rye spiciness that I enjoy. The flavor reflects these notes with that chocolate, caramel maltiness that seems a bit overly sweet paired with the woody and rye spiciness. The spicyness seems to go beyond the wood and rye to encompass the bourbon alcohol. Although this is overly sweet, I enjoyed this brew.

Thanks to holdenn for sharing. Bottle, pours dark brown with tan head. Nose is sweet with brown sugar, toffee, and toasted nuts. Flavor comes off rather sweet and simple with brown sugar, toffee, toasted nuts, and chocolate. Med body an alc in check. A really simple tasting and forgetable brew.

22oz btl (could have sworn the btl said it was 9.5% abv but maybe not). Pours a deep dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma is one of roasted malt and candied sugar. Medium bodied mouthfeel with strong roasted malt flavors and notes of dark fruit. A bit of mild spice towards the finish. Reminiscent of Bell’s Hell Hath No Fury. An interesting almost stout. I liked it but it left me wanting a bit more.

Bomber. Pours really dark brown with tan head. has the looks of a stout. Aroma of roasted malts, sweet chocolate, caramel, and a bit of smoke. Flavors of roasted malts, caramel, chocolate syrup, and bit of faded coffee. Mouthfeel was a little thinner than I expected. Decent beer but was expecting something different.

DalzAle (2000) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2010
Bottle shared with the Surly gang, courtesy of mowz. Dark black pour, a little carbonation and a slightly malty and spicy aroma. Flavor was a weird cross between a barleywine and a stout; not nearly rich enough to be a stout, and not malty and bold enough to be a barleywine. A little malt flavor, thin smoke and a little spice, but mostly uneventful. A good Flossmoor beer, but not something I’d ever try to find again.

lovemyipas (544) - nw burbs, Illinois, USA - OCT 29, 2010
pours black with a nice one finger brown creamy head. aroma is anise, dark pitted fruit, and a touch of coffee, black licorice, and chocolate. flavor is the same as aroma but stronger with some good lacing. there is a touch of alcohol showing thru and the flavors stick to your tongue for a bit. pretty good, poured from a 22oz bottle halloween weekend, fitting.

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2010
Pours with a deep caramel brown body under a small, fizzly tan head. Potent aroma at cellar temp, with dark and pit fruits (plum, prune, cherry), chocolate, anise, coffee roasts. And despite this not being barrel aged, I find a woodsy note of bourbon. Flavor is a wicked conglomeration of all these things, with the richness of a bittersweet chocolate syrup, punched-up with hints of fruit, toned down with coffee bitters and spiked with rye whisky. Mid-bodied, a touch sharp on the tongue, yet its flavor lingers substantially. A slow sipper, quite intriguing. (And big props to the label artist! ;) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 22oz. bomber purchased at Flossmoor Station 9/25/10. Consumed 10/28/10.

22 oz. bottle shared by a super nice guy at Kristina’s pig roast behind West Lakeview Liquors. Pours a dark opaque brown with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, lactose, chocolate, coffee, and booze. Flavor of roasted malts, dark chocolate, cream, lactose, coffee, plums, metal, and alcohol. Medium-bodied, with mild carbonation and a roasty, boozy mouthfeel. Smooth, and pretty interesting overall.
