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.

alexanderj (3542) - 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 (5940) - 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 (3509) - 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.

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.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - SEP 21, 2008
Bottle. Pours with a yellow color and some haze. Medium size head.Great aroams of yeast, spices and dough. Wonderfully balanced with a great hop flavor profile, some banana and citrus as well as a spicy finish. Very well done. Hides the alcohol really well to.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - SEP 17, 2008
750ml bottle. Yeast heavy aroma with bananas and white pepper being at the fore. Some slightly musty sharp cheddar notes, bread crust, pear meat and a random amalgam of undefinable spices. Hop profile seems a tad musty and aged. Pours a brilliant, slightly hazed copper with tiny bubbles rising to meet a very thin bright white head. Flavor is moderatly malty, some hints of candy sugar with plenty of clovey and spicy yeast esters. Banana and pear, slightly floral with nary a hint of the 8.5%. Yeast pour brings out a bubblegum like sweetness and a slight musty dryness. Close to full bodied with excellent carbonation leading to a slightly spicy, but mostly dry finish. Decent, but far from my favorite Lost Abbey brew. Thanks Mike!

jake65 (3444) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - SEP 17, 2008
Bottle: Pours a dusty blonde with a large, creamy off-white head. Aroma is mild of malt and grass. A bit sweet, yet not overly so. Flavor is subtle Belgian spices with a floral and malt medley. Not real definitive in one direction. Very drinkable, almost too drinkable. If this is the beer served in Hell, I’d soon grow weary of Satan’s underachieving ale.

BückDich (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 (2470) - 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 (7346) - 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.
