Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: scottoale on 05-04-2008

Corruption, Greed and Lust, they’re all represented on he books today. Tomorrow they’ll be stringing Gluttony, Desire and Sloth. Go ahead, tell yourself you’re better than all of them. But you can’t. Hell can be funny like that. Down here it’s all just sin. Everyone here is screwed just like you. They don’t care who you sliced, diced or cheated. No one is escaping this heinous place.

Your roommate is an axe murderer. Eerily, he’s not threatening. How can he be? The Fallen Angel owns your body, mind and soul. As such, no one can take your life. It’s already been taken. Or was it given? Neither matters. Did you seriously think you were living a virtuous life? At least Satan serves beer in Hell. He brews it himself right there in that flame stoked cauldron. Rumor has it the beer is straw yellow, bone dry and simply labeled Inferno.

Hazy golden colour with a moderate sized white head. Fair head retention.

Sharp citrussy aroma with distinct clove and pepper phenols. Nice balance of fruit and spice. Sweet with some alcohol notes too.

Soft, sweet malt with a sharpness that cleans it out. Solid fruitiness and touches of spice. A little musty. Good.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Could be spritzier.

A solid Tripel. Good flavour even if there isn't a twist. Carbonation a little lacking.

Resembles Duvel in the pour with its light, milky golden color. Huge head, looks like a bubble bath. As many fingers thick as you want it to be, good retention and a thick, sticky lace.

A great combination of tropical fruits and peppery Belgian yeast. Lurking in the background, I have to admit there is something warming.

Dare I say, yeast forward? The fruits come across in the taste as well as the smell, but the yeast takes over quickly and never lets go. Somewhere along the way, the alcohol puts its stamp on things and dominates.

A duo of extremes...spice and heat. The yeast provides for extreme spiciness and the alcohol brings fire to the party. There's an instance of sweet and then it's nothing but spice followed by pain from the burn. My tongue is already ruined after just a few sips. The back of my tongue is starting to feel it and there's a tingle in the my throat. Inferno is appropriately named. It doesn't help that there's an amazing amount of carbonation to keep the hot going.

It's not all that easy to drink. It smells so good, but then it's just painful to finish. I have a whole bomber to get through and I have no idea how. This misses the mark.
