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.

Bottle: The aroma is a combination of citrus, apple, yeast, and clove. It pours a hazy dull orangish-yellow with a small white head that quickly fades to a film. The flavor starts with a touch of citrus and some faint banana. The finish is spicy along with some faint floral hops. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.

750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a moderate white head that lasted through three-quarters of the glass and left a nice coating of lace. Very bright aroma of apples, pears, citrus and just a hint of yeast. The flavor is equally lovely with apples, pears, citrus and again, just a hint of yeast. The flavor is also a bit sweet, but it is fruit sweetness as opposed to a sugary sweetness, and suits this beer well. Dry with some moderate bitterness at the finish. Very enjoyable.

750mL bottle picked up @ Ledger’s Liquors, no date. Clear gold with a 2 1/2 finger white head, good retention. Clean Belgian yeast, hay, and light skunk are up front in the aroma. White pepper, citrus and herbal hops are also present. So far, seems fairly dry and not too sweet at all, which seems to be what turns me off to a lot of Belgians. Flavor is a bit more herbal and sweeter, with pear and banana showing forth a bit more. The finish is dry with bitterness around a 3, though a light rotting malt element shows up and makes me unhappy. Alcohol is noticeable in the back of my throat, but that’s about it. Highly carbonated (not as much as Duvel, though--but what is, besides infected beer--with a medium full body. This lived up to my expections, and actually exceeded them a little.

Itís really a treat to see Lost Abbey on store shelves. Back in Colorado we had to resort to a crude and desperate bartering system to lay our hands on any of those well crafted beers. It is surreal to be able to find a bottle on the shelf of the local grocery store while picking up milk, eggs and Cheerios. In honor of the occasion I bought up a bottle of the Inferno - my most memorable, first beer for my new residence. Iím greeted by a moderately thick, fuzzy head, semi-cloudy and gold in body. The aroma is bright and surprisingly hoppy. In fact, thatís all I find - other reviewers mention some nice peppery notes, maybe some spices, but all I can discern is hops, hops and more hops and maybe a touch of malts. The flavor is radically different, and in a very good way. The hops has been toned down considerably, giving way to some clove and cinnamon spices in a slightly sweet soup. Pear and honey give the Inferno a sophisticated sugar touch, like foods Iíd expect accompanying wine at a fancy, fancy party. In fact, I even catch some white wine sugars. Imagine, I suppose, Duvel squared.

This is delightful. The Aroma is slight though pleasant, I would prefer more esters in the noise. It is beautiful golden color slightly hazy with a creamy dense head which laces just so. Slightly sweet slightly bitter with a perfect mouthful. Great Beer.

Bottle. Clear godlen coloured with a medium sized white head. Fruity aroma of spices, brett and yeast with notes of dish washer. Fruity flavour of spices, brett and yeast with notes of dish wwasher and hops. Bretty finish. Well balanced Reminds me of an Orval, though this one is less hoppy.

Hazy yellow pour with a big frothy white head.. Aromas of citrus, pear, and feet. Flavors bring some spice to the table. Pretty good mouth feel. I probabl wont be getting this one again.

Hazy light amber pour with a thick creamy head that sticks to everything. Nice aroma of citrus, apples, peaches, pepper, spice, alcohol and yeast. It’s got it all! Flavor is similar, but not quite as good or complex as the aroma. Slightly sweet, slightly spicy, slight alcohol kick. Smooth and creamy on the palate. Very nice.

750ml bottle. Slightly hazy amber with a medium creamy/rocky head. Aroma was pear and biscuit , peppery spices, cloves and a bit of banana. Taste was fairly dry with a big spice kick that lasted through the finish.

Think Duvel, without less carbonation. There’s an old saying about imitation and flattery, and it applies here.
