COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Corruption, Greed, and Lust. Theyíre all represented on the hooks of today. Tomorrow, theyíll be stinging Gluttony, Desire, and Sloth. Go ahead. Tell yourself youíre better than all of them. But you canít. Hell can be funny like that. Down here itís all just sin. Everyone here is screwed just like you. They donít care who you sliced, diced, or cheated. No on is escaping this heinous place. Your roommate is an ax murderer. Eerily, heís not threatening. How can he be? Here, the Fallen Angel owns your body, mind and soul. As such, no one can take your life. Itís already been taken. Or was it given? Neither matters. Did you seriously think you were living a virtuous life. At least Satan serves beer in Hell. He brews it himself right there in that flame stoked cauldron. Rumor has it the beer is straw yellow, bone dry and simply labeled Inferno.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 16, 2008
Bottle: Pours a golden color, light pop on the cork, light head and lacing. The nose is grassy with bright yeast esters and citrus. Fairly up front, light alcohol. Low yeast or fruit complexities in the flavor with a nice chewy body and a creamy balanced tail. Nice overall hop balance with the belgian spice but it doesn’t seem as great as Lost Abbey is capable.

fordest (1963) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - SEP 16, 2008
750 ml bottle opened while camping. Nice sweet bread aromas with much fruitiness. Flavor was hoppier than I had expected with a lot of citrus and a very tasty yeasty finish. Pretty good stuff.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Bottle. Head is initially large, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs, basement), with light notes of gum, pepper, lemon zest, and chemical/plastic. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/oily texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Similar to the Devotion, this has some artificially sweetened chewing gum resemblance in both the nose and mouth. Lasting saccharine sweetness makes it less enjoyable with each sip. Nice other than that, but I have to say these two samples are not boding well for the rest of the line that just arrived in Colorado.

Praetorian (86) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 12, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2008 golden in color with an average sized off white head with minimal lacing. The aroma is of hay, spices, apples, yeast and cedar. The flavor is of apples, spices and hay with a strong overtone of yeast-slightly like a hefferwizen. The second half of the bottle was much yeastier than the first. The texture was syrupy. Iíd say itís a good belgian ale with a good flavor and a good kick, but not quite my style.

Bockyhorsey (2609) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - SEP 11, 2008
750ml bottle. A bready belgian yeast aroma. Gold body with white head. Had a fruity peach flavor along with some dry rye bitter. Left the palate little dry.

gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle. Pours a very hazy golden straw, fluffy white head, and creamy wet lacing. Straw nose, chalk, wheat, and slight barnyard. Flavors of tasty wheat and straw, grainy chalk, sweet fruit. Medium-bodied, very drinkable and tasty.

blipp (5830) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2008
Bottle. Pours hazy gold with a white head. The aroma is spicy and a bit sweet, almost peppery in its spicyness, but not quite. Dry mouthfeel, with spices, some fruit, and flowery or earthy hops. Nice.

after4ever (6059) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2008
750, corked and baled. Another LA delight. Pours a cloudy, toffeeish medium amber with a towering, fizzy platinum blonde head that lasts and lasts, leaving thick sheets of woolly lace. Mild, dusty, slightly green apple-y nose. Not so impressive up top, really, and this beer’s been out of the fridge for coming up on 20 minutes. Plenty of time to blossom. Creamy medium body with firm, refreshing carb. Resiny bitterness on the mid-palate that flows through to the finish. Joined by slight lemon and caramel notes. Doesn’t have a hell of an individualistic identity as a crisp belgian farmhouse ale, but what’s there is delicious and drinkable. Hides the 8.5% extremely well--don’t let this "BSA" listing nonsense fool you, either, btw. This is a great big saison.

Nik925 (745) - California, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Amazing banana/clove yeast funk in both aroma and taste, though kept in check and mild. Golden and crisp, perfect carbonation. Not the most complex Belgian Strong ale, but perfectly made and very enjoyable. Simple yet excellent.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 4, 2008
Pours a beautiful gold, with a classic Belgian head. Remarkably full aroma, with strong citrus notes, apple and baking spices (would complement apple pie wonderfully). A bit hot (appropriately, I guess), with yeast, hops, lots of spices and a very smooth, dry finish - just a bit tart. This one is incredibly drinkable.
