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.

ross (2075) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - AUG 11, 2008
Bottle from Joey. Pours out a yellow color with a white head on it. Smell is fruity and citrusy with a nice amount of hop flavors. Some yeast and bread on the nose too. Taste is similar to Duvel, lively body, sweet yet refreshing. Easy to drink. Not really a memorable effort. Better than something I could brew though. Pretty dry on the finish too. I am really reaching for something to say. I drank it cold, because when it got warm it seemingly fell apart. Best served out of the fridge.

jasonp (1555) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Bottle, RBSG 2008 (provided by SDBruboy, I think). Somewhat hazy deep gold/light copper with a white head. Nice, rich grassy noble hop nose. The flavor has a pleasant sweetness level with notes of a malty pils base, grass, hay, lemon and some spicy Belgian yeast character. A mix of an amped-up pils and strong Belgian golden ale. The body is medium yet very round with lively carbonation. Nice beer.

Bartzilla (532) - La Mesa, California, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Pretty good, though not quite the Duvel clone I heard it was going to be. But that’s neither here nor there. Reminds me a lot of Damnation. Crisp, clean and that nice candi sugar/yeast combo taste that I simply love. Good beer. Hope this is one that stays in steady rotation.

jazz88 (2542) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 8, 2008
Bottle. A clear medium golden color with a white foamy head. Crisp and spicy flavors with a peppery finish. The aroma is slightly grassy with pepper and a little dusty. Mildly sweet with somewhat earthy but well balanced with the candy sugars.

CamdenD (1070) - Madrid, SPAIN - AUG 7, 2008
A very nice "lighter" strong ale. Reminiscent of a tripel but lacking the syrupy aftertaste. Think a nicely done "double" saison. Good.

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottled. Disappointing pour when they go and compare this to Duvel, as the head only appears when you glug the thing out at a near vertical orientation. The last remnants of foam do stick around nearly permanently though. This beer is loaded with big, boozy, belgian malts, both in the flavor and the aroma, and is dominated by a brazen yeastiness and mild euro hop. At once easy and difficult to drink, there is a great, full body on this beer, with a short, clean, easy finish. Light florals come out with smaller sips while larger chugs just lead to a big, brutish body. This beer could be beer-bonged, though the bonger would regret it. Fittingly for a beer so confused, I both like it and hate it.

bhensonb (10748) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 5, 2008
750 ml bottle, corked and caged, from South Bay Drugs. Hazy orange tinged golden color with an ephemeral white head. Smells like a tripel on brett with cardamom. And a bit of candi. Medium bodied with lightly fizzy carbonation. It is more bitter than sweet - like bergamot. Extremely pleasant. Lightly earthy. Definitely dry. Moderately spicey. Ends up like bitter light stone fruit. Not strongly bitter. A really quaffable ale. Great taste.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 4, 2008
From a 750mL Bottle. Mostly transparent, honey gold colored pour with a firm finger of small bubbled white foam. Perfumey yeast esters in the nose, bringing out suggestions of rose petals, banana, and pear. Light herbal hop characters also noticeable, along with an underlying sweet orange citrusy note. A subtle, sugary pale malt sweetness also lies in the background. Medium bodied, moderately carbonated mouthfeel with a smooth, soft texture. Clean flavors of bready pilsner malt and honey up front on the palate, followed by some floral yeast esters and banana. Toward the finish, some herbal hop flavors start to come out, as well as a mild peppery yeast character that lingers behind on the palate. This particular bottle has a higher carbonation level than others I’ve opened, but still is less than I’d like it to be. The creaminess of the palate works well with the banana notes, but my personal preference would be to have it drier with a more carbonic bite to help accentuate the pepper. Still, a pretty solid beer overall with a wonderful yeast presence.
