Devil’s Night At Mullman’s. Bottle shared by Mullman. Hazy orange/amber color with a good sized off white head. For a beer with a moderate alcohol content, I found the alcohol presence extremely apparent in both the nose and the flavor. Fruity, spicy aroma and flavor with some yeast as well. Not a great beer, but fit right in on Devil’s Night. Choos (754) - Taylors Hill, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2005
Aroma: sweet malt and slightly hoppy. Appearance: orange and cloudy with yeast added, good lacing. Flavour: malty and slightly medicinal. Palate: thin to medium mouthfeel with a spirity and malty aftertaste. desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2005
Pours a clear, fiery reddish amber with lots of billowing head. Effervescing like crazy. Aroma is yeasty and sweet with some typical Belgianesque hop character. Flavor is very dry and biting, with a good wallop of alcohol right away, giving way to some tart fruitiness and some mild hops in the beackground. Finish is loads of dryness and lots of carbonation. Pretty drinkable, and quite fitting for rating #666. IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Bottle at Club Diablo, Buffalo. Hazy reddish amber color with some floaties and a light beige color head. Fruity aroma, slightly tart, relatively spicy. Medium flavor of tart fruit, notably cranberry and apple, light yeast notes, light spice. Medium bodied, pretty high level of carbonation, some dryness in the finish. I kinda liked it and didn’t turn it down when somebody bought me a second. BigBastard (668) - L.A., California, USA - SEP 19, 2005
I admit, I HAD to sample a beer named Satan. I was overpowered by the overripe fruit flavor. That and the alcohol was all I tasted, and that wasn’t all that good.

Coppery red body. Decent sized frothy tan head.
Some apples in aroma. Other fruit and spices with some dry rind.
Flavor has more fruit. Sour and fizzy bananas… sourness has lemony characteristics. Sour butter too, with some cinnamon.
An okay beer, but nothing exceptional.

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. highlandlad (1480) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 6, 2005
Ah Satan, you’re not such a bad bloke after all. I’ve 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 didn’t 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 ’mouth presence’ and body of the better strong Belgians. There are banana notes and caramel in the mix but they’re swamped by that raw spiritous finish. (330ml bottle, IBS, Perth) ALLOVATE (3015) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2005
I don’t know if I am colour biased with beers but this seemed the better of the Block brouwerij ’satanists’. 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 ½" 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.
