COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian golden ale. On the nose it is lightly hoppy and yeastily spicy, with faint caramelly malt notes and a touch of citrusy and estery fruit. The head tastes extremely bitter, as is often the case with this style. Surprisingly fruity, but with a strong hoppy bitterness. There is a warming, malty, vanilla quality to it, which develops into an alcohol kick towards the end. Secondary fermentation in the bottle.

So I have here a long defunct product which was the last bottle at Marty’s in Newton. Didn’t realize at the time but the fine print on the cap says October 2008. No matter this type of beer doesn’t necessarily skunk...it only becomes more evil. Looks like a Leffe or Affligem, only more gold than blond. Aroma by now is some fruit and a whole lot of booze, sort of like a a white wine, only yeastier. Starts bitter and spicy and ends with a cream soda flush. Stings the palate and sticks around for a few seconds after. Very unique. Now I feel like I’ve destroyed a historic artifact. Hopefully my review will not be the last and someone has a large cellar.

Originally rated March 2006. The Power of Christ Compels You !! Yes, this is a devil of a beer, as when I turned it a few times (very slowly) to get the sediments flowing, it created shitloads of pressure and the brew wound up all over in my room. Gives a big fat white foamy head with long retention. The lacing left is also quite good. Hazy pale yellow in colour with lots of flaky sediments all over. The nose is mostly a mild wave of Belgian yeast with some spices, like corriander. The strong yeast is there at first, then goes to a slight alcohol finish, to then end in an apple aftertaste. Best before date is May 2008 and listed as a 8.5% on the AVB. Resembles to Duvel, but not as good.

330ml squat bottle. Aroma is candy and grains. Almost a caramel corn smell. Pours very attractive. Rich gold with big white heat that quickly dissipates to a thin ring. Taste is full with cereal and candy. This bottle is nearly 2 years old, so I feel the flavors have mixed and mellowed into this wonderful subdued mix. I will have to try a new bottle to see if that theory is correct.

Kristall-König (2187) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - AUG 9, 2011
Schöne weiße und feinporige Schaumkrone. Farblich bernsteinmäßig. Fruchtige und malzige Düfte, etwas alkoholisch. Antrunk perlig. Anschließend hefig und fruchtig mit einer Ahnung nach Pflaumen, beinahe die Zunge betäubend. Malzig und leicht brennend im Abgang. Ein sehr gutes Bier. 6666 - extra evil!Test vom 22.4.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche

Koelschtrinker (9999) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 11, 2011
Marzipanartiger, aber auch alkoholischer Geruch. Die 8% merkt man höchstens im Nachgeschmack, der am wenigsten gelungen ist, da er zudem noch metallern schmeckt. Dagegen punktet das Bier im Antrunk mit fruchtig prickelndem Aroma. Dabei ist es einigermaßen süß. Ein weiteres gutes belgisches Bier.

benpickens (397) - Camarillo, California, USA - APR 6, 2011
Much like Duvel; with the exception of lots of floaters and smaller head. Crisp and dry with Rye and wheat aromas. Good brew but would rather have a Duvel or La Fin Du Monde.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Draft at the Brew Wharf mini beer festival. Fruity with caramel and toffee notes. Complex and tasty.

FatPhil (8995) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 6, 2011
330ml bottle (Delirium Cafe, Brussels) BB2010-12, drunk 2011-01
5 Not much aroma, only slightly sweet light berries.
3 cloudy orange with sinky bits, small head. Delirium barman poured rather than us, grrr...
6 Gentle light grains, milky, absolutely no hint of alcohol, and it doesn’t taste like a big beer at all. Has some of the sweetness of fresh almonds.
4 Pleasant palate before you get to the sludge at the bottom (which squicks me a bit), good level of carbonation.
14 Aged very well, massively mellow and soft. Shame that it’s lacking some balls in the aroma department. Dunno if the new moortgat Lucifer will compare well to this, I hope so.
