look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.5
Presented in a 750ml caged and corked bottle. Cost me $9.99 at Lone Hill Liquors. Poured into my trusty Duvel tulip glass.
Appearance: clear golden color, vigorous carbonation, topped with a fluffy white head that settled down to a half inch head with nice sheets of lace.
Smell: a bit boozy which is a bit surprising since Inferno weighed in at 8.5%ABV. Other than that, it struck me as a bit bland with only modest spicy or floral aromas and a mild bready maltiness.
Taste: again, nothing here really jumped out and "wow'd" me. The malt bill was rather subdued and had a bit of hay and bread aspect. The hops side of the equation was equally moderate with a slight peppery spiciness. The alcohol flavor asserted itself and left a slight warmth down the throat with each swallow, especially as it neared room temp.
Feel: creamy, full with a dry finish.
Overall, not as spectacular as I had envisioned. A decent take on the style but my wife ended up liking Inferno better than I did. Still, worth a try.

Served in a snifter
A - This beer is pale yellow in color with a slight haze. It is topped with a mountain of fluffy, white head. Chunks of foam cling to the sides of the glass.
S - I get light fruit notes. Pear comes to mind. I smell some spices as well.
T - The taste follows the smell. I get spices and pear. I do get a little alcohol.
M - Moderate
O - It is a nice beer, but it is not outstanding for the style. The taste and smell are a bit on the weak side. It drinks easily though.
