1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Fizzy looking & yellow tinted clear. Bright white head, tending to be quite lacey. Slightly yeasty aroma over a swillish background with a pinch of lemon and a smidgen of alcohol. Bland and lagery weak body..very swillish but hot with a slight bitterness in the end. Quite like chewing on a stepped on piece of dry grass. A peppery alcohol bit to it too...I’ll put $20 on it being bottom fermented, no matter what the damn label says..satan has been known to lie.

Light, flakey, not unlike Pabst Blue Ribbon. Easily the most disappointing Belgian Strong Ale I have ever tasted. Don't waste your time or your money on this drainpour.

Hoofdsmaak is zuur en wat bitter.
Nasmaak is overheersend bitter. Weinig geur. Ruikt naar een ’gewoon’ biertje.
Duvel van Moortgat kan ik zeer waarderen, helaas dit biertje stuk minder.

Are some batches different? My sample is a pale yellow with a white rocky head. The nose is a muted spiciness of clove and cinnamon. The ABV is noted but it has to be experienced through a burst of effervescence that takes a while to subside. As such it doesn't have that Duvel sippiness(???) Hang on, this has ascorbic acid (E300) and Propan-1,2-diol alginate (E405) whatever the hell that is! Uh uh, do NOT do that!!! Low marks for my pissed-off factor when I don't know what I am drinking. Go to hell Lucifer. Duvel unto others as you would have duvel unto thee.

Yellow with a nice head. Aroma from flowers, elder and citrus. Flavor brings way too much alcohol, peppery finish. I did not like this...

This is what a Budweiser/Miller/Coors would taste like if it had 8% alcohol.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
75cl bottle, expired april 1989! At home, shared with Mathieu87.
APPEARANCE: clear blond beer, no foam whatsoever.
NOSE: alcohol, grains, very jenever like.
TASTE: jenever again, some sour apples...
Very nice experiment, but not worth drinking anymore off course... The regular Lucifer like taste is gone completely. No hops detectable anymore and fruity bitterness is replaced by alcohol warming feeling.

Damn awful, bitter, acidic, medicine-like flavor. Some mysterious spice flavor as well, like as if the drink was stirred with one of those scented, tree air fresheners for your car. A little grassy. The hops and the alcohol really bite you. Nasty, just plain nasty.

golden, clear (I didn’t see any cloudiness), medium body, bitter, ...an overall nasty experience taste wise: soft up front, but ended with a poisonous head & finish. I thought perhaps that (and the alcohol content) was why they called it Lucifer. Tried this at the Burp Castle in NYC.

Pale Golden Color, unappetizing aroma. Slightly Spicy flavor but not in a good way. The finish was awful.
