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.

Light citrusy yellow-orange colour with a thin fine foam head that’s just slightly off white. I’m a bit plugged up today and can’t smell too well. However, it’s got a bit of hops in the aroma. Really nice palate, a bit thick and chewy reminding me of an english bitter. The flavour is really nice, similar to a Duvel, hop notes with some slight spice and dry belgian yeast flavours.

750mL Bottle. Thanks Andy! Fruity pale malt aroma, light grapefruit and heavy belgian yeast on bread sugars. Heavy on the minerals. Pours a clear pale gold, with a nice froth of silky, silky soap white. Flavor produces an ester heavy sugar base, with nice tart acerbic belgian yeast phenols and a wallop of drying hops and alcohol. Rather clean, but again touched by that very signature Lost Abbey mineral profile that always throws these paler belgians slightly askew. Balanced, well-flavored and certainly quaffable. But at this gravity I yearn for a little more complexity and sense a faint bit of oxidation. Not bad, but nothing to get really whipped up about.

pineypower (2479) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Thanks to Flacoalto for this one. Pours out a cloudy straw color with a moderate fluffy white head. Aroma is of banana, clove, spice and some yeast. Taste is complex, sweet fruits, banana, yeast, clove and some slight bitterness in the finish. Alcohol is well hidden

Stine (1462) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Softly sweet aroma buried in yeast. Pears, banana, cookie dough, cotton candy, tarragon, clove; full of a romantic, herbal, damp, floral quality. Winsome and warm.

Clean, leafy and slightly medicinal flavor. Yeast seems especially stony, gravelly and dusty on the fairly simple golden malts, and this lends a lovely stock-ale kind of musty, ancient impression, like the beer was dug up from the cellar of an abandoned French farmhouse. Flavors of soft lavender, autumn leaves, grasses, lemongrass and wildflower honey, all burdened so slightly with alcohol, though the impact of the weight certainly seems intentional.

Medium body is somewhat syrupy with lagging carbonation. Finishes bitterly with drawn out yeasts, dried golden fruits, and alcohol. Mission accomplished. Thanks Zac!

Bottle. Thanks to WeeHeavySD for sharing. Pours a very cloudy yellow-amber with a thick, fluffy white head. Sweet aroma of yeast, hops, cloves, banana. Smooth taste, lots of spices, yeast and a bit of a hoppy bite. Light lingering spicy bitterness. Very tasty.

chrisafari (100) - Orange, California, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Pours clear blonde (was expecting it to be darker) Sweet aroma of belgian yeast. Flavor of orange and pepper. Leaves a nice crisp tartness on the tongue and throat. For a belgian strong ale that is 8.5%, I was expecting it to much more intense. It is really easy to drink. This beer is trouble!!

TomDecapolis (4425) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JUL 1, 2008
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy almost milky yellow/orange with a medium creamy/bubbly off white head that laced. Aroma of lemon, bready malt, peppery notes, cherrios, grassy, Belgian yeast esters and other spicy notes. Flavor was bready, toasted malt, peppery/spicy notes, lemon some other citrus, honey, starts sweet and ends dry.

BBB63 (5937) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUN 30, 2008
Bottle from WeeHeavySD (thanks Jon) and served in my big ole Karmeliet glass, no problems with the cork for me:

Initial pour is a clean deep golden hue with a soft frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of honeycomb, flowery and pungent esters, candi sugar, grassy hops, coriander, grains of paradise, and even a hint of hickory smoke.

The taste is a balanced blend of sweet malt and sugars countered by some hop bitterness and spice. Tasted a bit like a unbaked pie, still raw and fresh. The sharp aggressive mouth feel brings to attention an almost Witbier undertone found towards the end. The whole flavor profile is all over the place and quite frankly very, very interesting I even found a hint of catty hops after half the bottle, weird for it to show up now.

I am honestly not sure about this, there is part of this brew I am digging and parts I wish were more integrated.

served cold from bottle. The cork WAS difficult, wasn’t it, person-below-me-who-just-wrote-that? Anyway, the beer poured hazy amber with a large white head that left good lacing. Aroma of spices and fruit. Flavor was also spicy and sweet. Definite presence of cloves. Thin mouthfeel. A nice beer. One of my friends (not a beer person) commented, "this beer tastes like pot".
