Still, I do not know how to enjoy Demon Hunter. The road is long and harsh, but this beer’s earthy, yeasty character is sometimes overwhelming; a profound warming sensation is not enough to classify it as a satisfying strong ale. Nose is usually messy, taste is sweet and dirty. Like "Rurale" I usually find this overcharged by yeast character.

Mortlach (962) - Rome, ITALY - AUG 10, 2013
10/08/2013 Ma che siete venuti a fa (tap). Arancia leggermente torbida, schiuma bianca pannosa, non molto persistente. Al naso sentori di lieviti, zucchero di canna, spezie e luppolo, magnifica! In bocca ha un bellissimo equilibrio tra l’attacco dolciastro maltato e il finale amaro lungo e pulito. Corpo medio, carbonazione media, grande beva. Eccellente belgian strong ale, Montegioco si conferma su standard altissimi!

jbruner (2136) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Pours a hazy gold from the bomber with thin white head and no lacing to speak of. Aroma of bready grain, funky yeast, and citrus. Taste is sweet caramel malt, peppery notes, and funkiness. Weird but good.

Vendor sampling on this one, rough description. Soft copper brown pour. Malt forward and bready in the nose and slightly candy-ish. Some umami and light toffee flavors come through as well. In general this one was pretty muted and singular, although not unpleasant

Finally got the right chance to buy this one! 50% off sale, sold! Pours hazy dark amber with floaties and a sudsy white head that fades to a foamy film. Aroma is sweet candied sugar and pepper spice with some mild funk and muted hops. Taste is sweet spicy malt and sugar along with a little funk and subtle tartness and bitterness with subtle grape apple qualities. Palate is full calm yet fizzy and drying. Very enjoyable!

Lukaduke (1998) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Pours a brown copper color with a finger of eggshell foam that evaporates instantly. Aromas are warming, sweet toffee, date with touches of plum, earthy wood and booze, On the palate its complex and intriguing... sweet vanilla caramel, vinous fruit, and a touch of earthy bitterness on the finish.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - OCT 22, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 8, 2012 Ottima! Aroma maltato quasi di segatura bagnata, con una traccia etilica. Nel bicchiere si presenta ambrata carica. Al palato con note maltate dolci e leggermente tostate tutto sottolineato da una venatura alcolica e da una speziatura rassicurante. Si sente una beata e leggera luppolatura. Ottima la corposità. L’alcool come detto è presente ma non risulta mai stucchevole. Buona per davvero.

Theydon_Bois (7924) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2012
Tap at Ma Che, Trastevere Roma - 03/10/12. Opaque murky amber/brown with a big frothy tan head. Good lacing ensues. Fruit tones on the nose, apple, prunes, rhubarb, a little toffee, bread and spice. Tastes of toffee fudge, dates, prunes, orange pith, cinammon and a touch of alcohol. Fullish bodied with fine carbonation leading to a smooth and sweet finish with a pinch of spice.
