GreatSatanUSA (107) - Austin, Texas, USA - DEC 30, 2003
Tasty beer, hints of fruit and spice. I definitely did not taste the 8.5%, never had a beer with that much alcohol that wasn't either strong tasting or overly sweet. A very good beer.

En god fyldig smag, lidt belgisk gær over den, og en del humle. En rigtig djævelsk klassisker.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2017 Jasno złote, bardzo obfita, gęsta i trwała piana. W aromacie białe owoce. Mocno nasycone. W smaku powtórka z aromatu, gdzieś w tle delikatny chmiel.

Mpuntmuts (345) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 14, 2017
Clear pale piss yellow pour with a big white bubbly head. Aroma is basement yeast, wet dog, fruity hops, slight tropical fruits and light pilsner malts. Over medium sweet and halfway medium bitter. Medium body, over medium carbonation. Sweeter than I remembered it to be, still tasty, still a classic.

Aromat owocowy jakieś kwiaty, słodkie jakieś przyprawy. Żółte opalizujące, musujące z dużą wysoką i trwałą pianą . Mocno gazowane, Alkohol nie wyczuwalny. Bardzo pijalne. Smak lekka goryczka lekko kwaskowe ale ogólnie bez smakowe, nie słodkie wytrawne, rześkie, średnia treściwość gorzki finisz.

UPDATED: DEC 8, 2017 Duvel is one of the first strong Belgian ales that I ever tried, probably even before I tried craft beer. I recall sitting among the rocks at Start Point lighthouse, headphones on and an assortment of ales by my side. I’ll never forget that family holiday. Anyway, Duvel is the benchmark by which I tend to judge all other Belgian beers. Heavy yeast and alcoholic taste. Commands respect.

Cybercat (6239) - Georgia, USA - DEC 6, 2017
Taps clear topaz with a fairly thick eggshell head. Aroma presents pomme and fresh malt notes. Flavor delivers strong malty, pomme and yeast tones plus not-so-subtle resiny hops. Mouthfeel features fair body, peppy fizz, and a fruity and hoppy finish. Duvel ya wanna have some?

lucasgpieri (7) - - NOV 29, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2017 Clássica Belga, ótima drinkability, e ideal para quem quer começar a beber cervejas importadas e/ou artesanais. Possui espuma farta e de boa duração, no aroma percebe-se malte, frutas, e notas florais, no sabor apresenta, além do malte, nota floral com um frutado refrescante. De alta carbonatação e corpo médio, o único incômodo é o retrogosto um pouco alcoólico demais. Fora isso é uma cerveja muito equilibrada e ideal para dias quentes. por fim, é uma cerveja que exige o copo adequado para a formação perfeita de seu corpo e espuma.
