COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Corruption, Greed, and Lust. They’re all represented on the hooks of today. Tomorrow, they’ll be stinging Gluttony, Desire, and Sloth. Go ahead. Tell yourself you’re better than all of them. But you can’t. Hell can be funny like that. Down here it’s all just sin. Everyone here is screwed just like you. They don’t care who you sliced, diced, or cheated. No on is escaping this heinous place. Your roommate is an ax murderer. Eerily, he’s not threatening. How can he be? Here, the Fallen Angel owns your body, mind and soul. As such, no one can take your life. It’s 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.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 2, 2008
750 ml bottle - thanks to USCMustangman for the trade; pours bright orange and mostly clear (first glass) with frothy white head; sweet aromas of malts, fruit, apple, vanilla and lemons; very little spice in the flavors; second glass was muddy brown from the yeast and the obvious increase in texture; musky flavors of bananas and fruit; an ok beer overall

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 1, 2008
Bottle at Toronado San Diego. Pours with a golden body topped by a thin head with some lacing. It’s light and fruity with a light note of malt and a little grassy hop note. Light bodied and smooth.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - SEP 29, 2008
Sample at J Gumbos Aug 2008 Indy tasting - Aroma is spicy yeast, alcohol, citrus and pale malts. Flavor matches with a little more fruit and less alcohol. Palate is creamy, tart and thin. OK, but not something I would actively seek out.

enjoyed this in a vintage trappist glass. very nice color - especially with some sunlight shining through it. decent head, but somewhat short lived. a little sweet, a little malty, a little bitter finish. it changes as you drink it. good stuff.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2009 Yellow/golden in color with a kind of yeasty cloudiness and character. Nice aroma and bitterness for the style.

alexanderj (3381) - Branson, Missouri, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Bottle; previously had sampled this at Lost Abbey, but did not rate. Poured a nice, vibrant gold with a medium whitish head. Aroma was nice; sweet malt, fruit, flowers, yeast, some must, earth and light spicing. Don’t know what to make of the flavor. Started off a bit sweet, and malty which faded into a herbal/floral element. Not much alcohol in the taste, although it was present a bit in the palate. Just an ok beer from them.

Boutip (5025) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 23, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Bu11zeye: Poured a deep golden color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and good lacing. Aroma consists of semi-sweet Belgian-style malt with some light alcohol but no fruity ester as I had expected. Taste is a mix between some sweet Belgian malt with some hint of alcoholic phenols but no signs or fruity yeast ester or floral hops notes. Full body with good carbonation and some alcohol showing. I can’t say that this is bad but it is still somewhat short from Duvel.

Aubrey (3482) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Hazy yellow with a foamy white head. Very enticing nose -- sweet and yeasty. Mouthfeel is smooth and full. Light grains and faint honey. Interesting aromas such as wildflowers, honeysuckle, lemongrass, freshly cut wheat, white pepper, and roasted vanilla beans. Sweetness was mild and it quickly faded away into a buttercup-like dryness. Alcohol was hidden well, although the throat did become warm. In the finish, an interesting sourness surfaces gently here and there, adding interest. I yearned for a bit more sweetness and/or malt presence/depth, but otherwise it was an enjoyable beer.

BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2008
a gold color with a massive head. Yeast and spices on the aroma and in the body. Light hops in the body with a very dry mouthfeel and finish.
