COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A generous amount of Mt. Hood hops gives the Diablo a sweet cereal aroma that masks its deceptive nature. This sinfully good ale is true to its name.

yemenmocha (658) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - APR 23, 2009
Pours almost like a hefe-weizen: hazy pale golden color with contrasting white head. Nose is herbal & grassy with a suggestion of peach rind. On the palate this one is razor sharp, but pleasing with tangy/tart herbal hop flavors with a background of malt. Finishes dry.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 29, 2013
Sampled at the Funky 8 - Brooklyn, NYC. Sweet. Full bodied. Warming. Lots of rich malts, bread, spices, toasted sugars. Not bad.

Aroma of spices, pepper, and slight fruit. Taste of citrus, pepper, and some dryness. I had this beer on tap at Steamworks, and loved it.

Ignatious (15) - Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2013
Draft @ brewpub. Flavor is lightly sweet and slightly bitter with an abrupt flavor. While not a fan of many of Steamworks brand brews, Ale Diablo is a great drink with a little bit of kick.

Beershine (5201) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 3, 2011
Draft @ brewpub. I believe this version was with Chardonnay yeast. Gold with lots of rising bubbles. Interesting aroma begs one to contemplate the importance of yeast in brewing. The white wine yeast transforms this beer, and creates a fabulous, trippy aroma of green grapes and apples, in a good way, very winey. Great drinkability, and does not taste strong. Clean and with an off-dry finish. Lots of sugars on the palate. Has intense Gewurtztraminer flavors with a nutty malt undertone that gives the kind of body I always wish a white wine would have. A fabulous experiment and drinking experience.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 19, 2011
Draught. Aged in wine barrels. This was light gold and sparkly. The aroma is vinous, footy with light bready malt notes. Woody, vinous palate. Maybe a bit thick. Slightly funky/footy. Not really something that works for me.

alexanderj (3297) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - JAN 25, 2011
Bottle; poured a slightly cloudy color; lightish amber. Not much head. Aroma of not much; it is an old bottle so maybe that played a role. Flavor was ok; pretty sweet, well really sweet. Like sweet cereal with sugar. A bit of fruit, and dishwater. The devil made me do it.

DocLock (7700) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Bottle from Smith’s. Pours turbid orangy gold w 1f ow head. Nose is bready rock sugary pale malt, hops, spice. Tastes rock sugary funky malty, with floral, spicy, and citric notes. Gets champagny late, and is a tad overcarbonated.

alobar (2715) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Hard to believe that this is an American Strong Ale. Pours a straw yellow with a tall white head. Aroma of spice, Belgian yeast and lemon. Flavor is sweet-citrus (lemon) with spice and yeast. Abrupt flavor with an almost absent ending.
