27 Aug 2005 (Hunnshof) - Spiritous fruit malt aroma. Cloudy red-orange colour with good head and lacing. Sweet fruit, and spiritous malt hop flavours. tangy, dry finish but a bit thin.

Ah Satan, youíre not such a bad bloke after all. Iíve been stalling on opening this after experiencing a horrendously sulphurous bottle of Satan Gold. This is much better, albeit a bit clumsy. It looked good in the chalice: a ruddy copper with a towering fluffy head and plenty of spritz. The aroma seemed great at first: fruity, hint of bubblegum, some toffee and plenty of alcohol. But it developed a harsh astringent note as it warmed, similar to the Gold. Thankfully, it didnít carry through to the flavour, which was all sweet fruity esters initially before a rather intrusive and crude rush of alcohol in the swallow. Medium bodied and fairly slick in the mouth. Lacks the ímouth presenceí and body of the better strong Belgians. There are banana notes and caramel in the mix but theyíre swamped by that raw spiritous finish. (330ml bottle, IBS, Perth)

ALLOVATE (2912) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2005
I donít know if I am colour biased with beers but this seemed the better of the Block brouwerij ísatanistsí. Poured a chestnut copper, opaque, with a lot of pasty yeast sediment floating about. High amount of fine carbonation produced a huge whipped cream head that rose an Ĺ" out of the chalice lip. Musty fruit nose with a light toffee and burnt sugar note that softened as I downed it. Soft pulped fruit, flavours in the mouth, light biting carbonation yet reasonably smooth. Sweet toffee, caramel, mangoes and a little banana work unusably together to make quite a balance of normally sweet flavours that fail to become cloying. Quite long in the swallow, lightly warming and similar to the palate in its pronounced fruity esters. Holds its alcohol remarkably well, like its golden brother. Deadly sessionable, simple and easy. A nice easy drinker, and with summer fast approaching it may be my poison.

Firemoose15 (567) - Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2005
Out of a bottle. Aroma citrus,caramel and yeast. Taste was interesting a bit of orange and cranberry, sweet malt. It poured a nice dark amber with a huge pillowy off white head. Palate was medium bodied with a sort of tart finish to it. Not bad at all.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - AUG 19, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2005 Pours a fiendish hellfire red, like the leathery skin of Belzebuth himself. Aroma is cranberry and tangy citrus, with the former taking centerstage. Taste is more fruit, most notably cranberry, orange, and a bit of pineapple. Alcohol is very well hidden. Interesting beer. More like a lambic than a Belgian strong ale. Quite tasty.

sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2005
(Bottled) Hazy darkish amber with a medium head and a bit lemonadey carbonation. Caramely-sweet aroma with dried fruit, grapefruit and plums, also some bitter hops. Flavor of slightly unfermented, sweetish malt, dried and fresh fruit and smooth hops. Some sourness, too. Medium-bodied, quite smooth palate with a bit foamy carbonation. Not as sweet as I expected. Quite acceptable, nicely tart, but sweetish and a bit raw.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 22, 2005
Bottle served in my NB worthy glassware:

Pours a coppery hue with nice lasting fluffy head and excellent lace, more than a few floaties. The aroma has notes of sour apple and watermelon, floral and grassy hops, bready and pale malts, and some dusty yeast esters. The taste folows suit with an initial dose of sour fruit, bready malts, and yeasty overtones. The finish has a bit of bitterness and woody character with a dash of allspice. The feel is very average, but the ABV is well hidden. Overall a good beer and worth a try but it is still nothing that special.

mutant (854) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 16, 2005
Amber/orange with a huge fluffy, but colapsing head which leaves excellent lacing. Sour and slightly malty aroma. Sour fruit flavour with a considerable amount of yeastiness. Only a little bitter at the end. Appreciable amount of warming alcohol at the end which is appropriate, subtly satanic.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2005
(Bottle 33 cl) Dark golden with a reddish glow. Flat, greasy looking head sticking to the glass. Appears more full-bodied with less pronounced alcohol than itís golden sibling. To be preferred of the two. 040798
