COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a 9.4% abv gold colored Belgian. We really focused on making a dry champagne like finish to this beer. The Belgian yeast character is the star in this ale with peppery aromas backed with a dried citrus fruit character. This beer drinks like it is 6% abv so be careful. The name is a nod to the great Belgian Golden Strong ale Duvel which means devil.

Draft to snifter at Wicked Weed Funkatorium. Pours a hazy golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have Belgian yeast, bready malts, mild citrus fruit character,, mild plus peppery spice, I would agree that this drinks much lighter than the abv, some stone fruit character, solid enough.

Cybercat (4848) - Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Taps clear golden with a thick and frothy eggshell head that leaves good lacing. Aroma delivers notes of banana, pear, fresh malt, butterscotch and yeast. Flavor features all that the aroma promises, and adds some sour citrus and subtle hop tones. Mouthfeel offers firm, creamy body and lively champagne-esque fizz. Get bedeviled by a heavenly beer!

[ bottle ][ 1.5oz ][ @Tasting ][ $? ][ Schnapps snifter ][ 03.25.16 ]
translucent gold, large bubbled white head. Heavy toast/burnt grain nose, lightly estery. Sweeter front palate, frothy gum esters and metallic BMC notes clash mid palate before old, toasty finish. Sticky with burnt notes lasting.

NachlamSie (3210) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2016
11.2 oz bottle from Bruisin’. This is a hazy yellow with a tall white head that hangs around for a while. Good, potent, complex aroma on this one. Spicy black pepper and banana come through with cereal notes. The palate is spritzy and pretty full. This just tastes awesome. It starts off with distinct pepper notes with a constant, but tasteful banana character. Dried apricot starts to come through and all these fruity notes fade quickly to a dry and spicy finish. The alcohol is expertly masked. The more I drink this one the more I like it, and I loved it from the first few sips. This is as good as a lot of the big names in the style.

330ml bottle. Poured a hazy golden color with an averaged sized head. Belgian yeastiness, peppery, fruity and some citrus. Alcohol content well hidden.

Gachupines (1230) - USA - MAY 16, 2016
Golden with a light white head. Aroma is light yeast bread and mildly sweet, almost a hint of white wine. Flavor is very light, a little banana and minor clove. Somewhat sweet, acidic finish. It’s decent, but not memorable.

nearbeer (4716) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 11, 2016
33 cl. bottled 04.08.2016 and indicating 9.0% abv. Clear golden brew with a decent meringue of foam and lace. Aroma of clove bubblegum, honey, corn and evergreen resin. Tastes of flowery honey, peppery resin, toasted corn and bits of white wine and wood. Medium body has smooth medium carbonation and a drinkable balance with a dry slant on the finish.

DocLock (9494) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2016
Bottle via a PUB’R operative. Pours bright and hazy golden with 2-fingers of frothy, white head. Nose is yeasty florals, dry champagney notes, lemony fruit. Tastes champagney, with vibrant yeast and florals, hops, an overall dryness, and a beer that would give Duvel a run for its money in a blind taste test, I posit. My only beef is that, as for Devil or Satanic names, the Greek διάβολοc needs to be used more (although I would imagine that name would be a pain in the ass for label printers to print and beer sellers to pronounce), or even the better Asmodeus, although Asmodeus is an demi-demon rather than the Devil himself, and I know this because I am also an associate demon intern who sold his soul 25 years ago in exchange for an eidetic memory and super tasting and smelling powers. Thus was born Doc Lock, super hero of beerdom. Cheers.
