COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Devil Made Me Brew It! Brewed for 66.6 minutes with 666kg of malt and 6.6kg of hops, Devilís Pale Ale is a robust ale weighing in at 6.6% alcohol (notice a theme yet?). Darker than traditional pale ales, Devilís Pale Ale has an unmistakable hoppiness both in aroma and taste, balanced by a selection of 6 choice malts.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2008 Can, courtesy blankboy. Pours a dark ruby brown color. Definitely not Websterís definition of a "pale" ale. A thick foamy off-white head has good retention, and braids of lacing remain on the glass. Big malt aroma, plum, cider, dense chocolate. Some distant pumpkin, too. Very malty flavors, with dough and caramel qualities. Molasses, raisin also. Really donít get a strong hop presence at all. The malt character leaves a nice refreshing grain feel on the tongue. Easy drinking, and a semi-bitter finish. Not bad.

473ml can from MrManning - thanks Lenny! Dark, honey brown pour with a big, off white, almost yellowy head. Drippy lacing. Interesting nose - nutty, some nectarine, caramel, toffee and a bit of tobacco. Earthy flavors, toffee and caramel, some doughy notes. How is this a pale? At all? Not. Regardless, a nice drinker. Finish is pretty empty, just a slight mineral tinge. Nice.

Well, to the Devil, this may be considered "pale". In actuality, its a deep mahogony brown color and topped with a 2 finger width tan colored head. The can is pretty slick as well. Aroma is sweet, with maple syrup being prominent. There is some sweet grain, a touch of chocolate, and alcohol. Mildly sweet flavor of roasted malt and toffee, with moderate astringency. Body is somewhat thin and watery, with a biting carbonation. This was an interesting beer to try, just needs a bit more oomph in the flavor. How about a Canadian Strong Ale category? :)

I was surprised to see that this was an American Pale Ale. Kind of dark and heavy for this style. I liked it though. Very malty. Nicely carbonated

piscator34 (2046) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 18, 2008
Canned sample via gregclow. Deep amber in colour with average carbonation. Aromas are mainly of caramel and lightly toasted malts, along with a wiff of grapefruit. Flavor wise thereís a whole lotta toast, caramel, and candied oranges. Some bread dough becomes apparent near the finish. A bit heavy and dark for an APA, but a fairly good beverage nonetheless.

Devils Pale Ale pours (from a can, actually) a clear red-amber with a thin ivory head. This is a heavy beer for a pale ale, with lots of caramel malt and hops. The whole í6í theme with ingredients is cool, and yields a fairly balanced beer, but not the best.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2008
Interesting premise for a beer. Pours a clear brownish-amber with a brief head. Aroma is sweet malt, light hops, pretty macro-ish. Tastes likewise - plenty of crystal, slightly stale hops. Tastes more like an attempt on an ESB (slightly nutty character) than an American Pale Ale. Body is thin and marginally carbonated. Thanks to robinboyer for the trade - gotta try everything once!

I first tried this on December 30, 2007 after purchasing from my local LCBO outlet. First, allow me to write what is on the side of the can

666 kilograms of malt
6.66 kilograms of hops
66.6 minutes of boiling
6% alc/vol
6.6.06 Date of Conception

This beer poured a translucent dark red, it was beautiful. The head was white, very thin, and disappeared quite quickly. The aroma was sweet malt, a little hops, and a faint touch of licorice. The mouthfeel is medium-bodied, salightly creamy, and mildly carbonated. The flavour is primarily malts, with a little bit of sourness. There was no detectable hop presence in the flavour. <

Caramel malts and fruity esters suggesting raisins and plums are strong in the nose. Clear deep brown body is topped by a shy but decent tan fine bubbled head that recedes to a lasting cover. Raisins and caramel are strong also in the flavour with some doughy malt character but very little hop flavour apparent and restrained bitterness that is only just enough to keep the sweetness from cloying. Somewhat thin and perhaps a bit astringent light body with moderate carbonation. Can (LCBO at Summerhill, Nov-07) sampled with Beershine and Oakes.

AWS9 (526) - Mississauga, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 1, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 15, 2014 Re-rate time! Pours deep ruby brown with thick, foamy head. Roasted almond and malt aroma. Heavy malt taste, with a hint of hops. Some nuttiness. Not a great balance between malt and hops (how about 66.6 kg of hops?) Solid, but ultimately flawed. Re-rate: bit more hop kick on re-taste kicks this up a couple notches.
