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.

TomTron (414) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Pours hazy yellow with a big, soapy, white head. Aromas of peaches, citrus, and faint hops. Flavor is packed with a big carbo punch that literally attacks the tongue. Lots of tropical fruit and some malts floating around but this is literally an "inferno" on my tongue and one I rather enjoy. My second Lost Abbey offering and this one is reaffirming their status as a solid Belgian brewing company from the States. Cheers!

ClarkVV (3902) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 12, 2015
750mL bottled 9/2013, drunk 2/2015.
Oddly enough, the cork shot off as soon as the cage was loosened, but then the beer didn’t gush. Still resulted in a massive, thick, foamy white head that was slow to dissipate. Light blond/golden body is full of tight bubbles coarsing upwards.
Massively fruity esters in the nose (yellow fruits, strawberries, kiwi, pineapple....) give way to a bit of herbal hoppiness and a light dusting of white pepper and dry alcohol notes. A touch of bread-like maltiness can be discerned, but mostly this thing is just full-on fruity esters. Having had this a long time ago, probably closer to 2006 or so, I remember the nose being significantly less estery and much more herbal/peppery. I’m fairly certain this bottle sat warm/hot for too long, as there is dried beer below the cork where it has escaped obviously due to a strong refermentation. Fortunately, tons of esterification is the only downside of this and the beer still seems in good shape.
The flavor profile again speaks to the heavy fruitiness, with some definite alcohol undertones. Body is medium, sweetness is low and it reminds me a lot of Allagash Tripel. Very drinkable, quenching dryness and even some herbal/grassy hops thrown in for good measure. A delicious Belgian ale that seems much more Belgian than it does American. So that is nice.

A terrific Duvel-style ale. Pours super lively from the bottle, hazy yellow with beautiful huge white head. After it settled a bit, offers big aromas of Belgian yeast, lemon and grass. Flavor is great, with sweet banana, honey, some citrus rind complexity and a zesty dry finish. Lovely.

ABT_S54 (221) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 4, 2015
75cl bottle served in a Prearis glass (identical in style to a Lost Abbey glass). Pours a clear straw colour with a massively creamy, billowing white head which lasts and lasts. Aroma is sourdough, Belgian yeasty esters and other wonderful ingredients. Taste is fantastic level of complexity for such a style. Banana and walnut bread giving way to a slightly refreshing dryness via the sweetness of cake. The best example of a Belgian golden ale I have experienced and close to perfect.

jmgreenuk (5236) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle from some beer shop at some point in time over the last year! Poured a clear medium amber with a bubbly broken white head. The aroma is rich citrus yeast. The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a rich yeast, light fruit, alcoholic bitter palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation.

EithCubes (5138) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Corked and caged, 12.7 oz bottle, 9% abv. Nose is golden-yeasty, white grape with saffron, juicy honey and muscat, bit of dank herbal [spaghetti] hop character. Pours bright golden with a large and jiggling, tight white head. Airy, faintly tart body with medium alcohol, nice grape-honey character, somewhat vinous in nature. Smooth if full in the mouth with finely-textured carbonation, really no alcohol until the eventual gentle warming of the chest. Semi-dry despite starting with a swirling sugary character, golden malt character, straw, faint honey with light bitterness that’s clean and elegant. Mild but zesty lemony citrus and a slow-accumulating herbal blanket that reminds of old basil and new rosemary. Body is fuller and fuller with volume, tremendously smooth but heavy and a bit sludgy. If you squint, it’s a great tripel in the Karmeliet vein (though without any vanilla).

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle at the BrewDog Camden on 17 Mar 2012. Poured a lightly hazy, deep golden colour, with a big, dense off white head. Aroma of massive dried fruit, Belgian yeast, spice, cloves and grassy hop. Some flowery notes in the flavour, with lemon zest, peaches and straw. Finish was peardrops, ginger, molasses, honey and malt.

halfonit (1199) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Pours a nice golden color. Aroma is mainly of hops and yeast. Nice heavier palate. Flavor is basically the same with a malt, grain and slight alcohol bonus. Leaves a yeasty yet toasty malt finish. It’s a good American Belgian brew.
