3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle as an extra. Pour has a deep brown color with patches of white foam and a still look in the glass. Aroma has dark fruit, sweet malt, caramel, and oxidation. I think this bottle may have matured for quite a while after the initial 15 weeks. Mouth feel is medium and there is basically no carbonation. Flavor is heavy to the malted side, dark fruit, heavy yeast, and a lingering finish.

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.

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!

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

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!
