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.

Glouglouburp (6075) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2009 In short: A crisp and dry Saison-ish aromatic grassy Belgian blonde ale. Excellent
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed fresh two months after purchase.
The look: Cloudy golden yellow body with a small white head
In long: Very aromatic beer, floral notes fresh grass abound. Lively carbonation, this body feels alive, very nice mouthfeel. Crisp malts, dry hay, grass, a little lemon skin. Overall very dry and a crisp freshness sensation. Rather dry. That beer could really pass as a Saison. The main thing that came to my mind while drinking is was “Red Barn minus the funk”. Yet another excellent beer from a brewery that can’t seem to make a bad beer, although they’re so good at what they do that if they decided to make one they’d kick Steelback’s ass their own game.

Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2008
Objectively speaking: A very successful reproduction of the world-famous Duvel.
I like: Generous peppery yeast and almost salty character from the mineral foundations work very well with the tight combination of alcohol, tea cookies, hay-like pils malt and expressive flowery, grassy, earthy hops. Fitting bitterness level, very dry. Excellent and authentic carbonation.
I dislike: Seems to me this was dead on what they attempted and I do enjoy a Duvel from time to time, so it’s all good.

ChainGangGuy (4391) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2008
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy, pale ornage-gold body with a small, wispy, white head. Smell: Peppery spices and fresh herbs opposite a scent of honey ladled over ripe fruit. Taste: Slight toasted biscuity malt character with a mild honeylike sweetness. Blend of pear and citrus juices. A touch floral, spicy. Restrained bitterness. A bit peppery. Light bitterness lingers into the particularly dry finish. Mouthfeel: A bit above medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Another quality release from Lost Abbey.

750ml bottle. 2008 vintage. thanks to ironchefscott for this one. pours slightly hazed golden with foamy white head. aroma is loaded with lawn clippings, a bit cheesy and hay. flavors are grassy, herbal, a drying hay spicy finish. as it warmed it got more herbal and the carbonation flattened out a bit.

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2008
been a bit underwhelmed by the last few la brews I’ve tried. Just your average, run of the mill, belgian brew with a peppery finish. Hope tomme isn’t resting on his laurels.

Pours a cloudy gold. There is a slight nuttiness in the flavor along with a bit of pineapple. Slight funk. Dry finish.

750 from the MJ Rare Beer Club. A very nice beer to have chilling in the fridge as the weather gets hot and sticky here in NC. So yeah, it’s officially a Duvel clone according to what we’ve heard (from Tomme Arthur among others). And it’s certainly in the ballpark, even in the same dugout I reckon. But while Inferno shares a lot of virtues with that great beer - a lovely golden color, big fluffy head, and a nice zesty aroma - it’s also got some interesting distinctions. Specifically, there’s just a hint of tropical fruits in the flavor here, subtle notes of mango and melon, very subtle but there to give it that San Diego twist. And then there’s the finish, which is crisper, more dry, even a trace more peppery than Duvel. So ultimately it’s a typically great LA beer that pays hommage to a master even as it strikes out on its own path.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Pours a clear gold with a generous well sustained white head. Smells of caramel, light citrus, cumin, some clove, perfume, wildflowers, spicy hints. Tastes dry and moderately bitter with a nice citrussy element that gives way to some underlying nuttiness as the beer warms. Nice peppery splashes dot this beer balancing it out nicely. A slam dunk!

Walt (2449) - Austin, Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Pour is hazed orangey amber with a thin sticky bright white head...smell is fruity at first with apricot, pear, and peach...then spicy with pepper, perfume, orange rind, and lightly floral...taste is almost exactly as it smells...fairly fruit with apricot and pear, then spicy and dusty with pepper, perfume, maybe some clove...finish is a little more herbal...interesting and tasty...dry...

ryan (3186) - Beltsville, Maryland, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Hazy golden body with a medium sized white head. Fresh yeast and herbal hops in the nose along with a nice bit of golden fruits and honey, doughy malts. The taste is drier than the aroma lets on, a bit of honey and cotton candy is there as well as some bread. Hops charactor is herbal, floral and a bit mineral-ly, moderate bitterness, but smooth. All ending with pears and light orange. Medium boyd is soft and well rounded. Carbonation is moderate, but extremely gentle. Another winner from Tomme.
