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.

Wasn't sure what to expect from this beer... poured very light, almost looked like a wit-beer... but the taste was great... paired with spiced chorizo sausage and cheese and spicy Gouda cheese and was great, brought out the flavor in this beer, perfect pairing...

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottleneck's Bottled On Date is smeared but I can make out the "13" at the end.

A- From a gentle pour comes a massive three inches of off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a large center bump of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind. Once the sediment is introduced, it creates a murky, wispy cloud inside the body.

S- Effervescent Belgian yeast reminds me of a saison since there's a touch of soily funk.

T- Clean flavor of Belgian yeast brings notes of apple, pear and some banana. The alcohol is incredibly well-hidden. Almost has a white wine dryness to it.

M- Crisp and bright with medium-high carbonation and a light body.

O- Definitely one of my new top 5 BSPAs. Has all the components that I look for in the style: Champagne-like carbonation, is dry yet still somewhat sweet and has a yeast presence that's almost perfectly balanced toward the malt flavor.

Biscuit laced with funk and light fruit dominate the nose.
The beer pours hazy gold with a giant rocky off-white foam cap.
Ripe fruit first strikes the palate with a hint of sweetness, funk, some orange, a hint of bubble gum, and spice as the beer grows dry to finish slightly tart with a spicy bitter emphasis. The bitterness is a crisp quinine like bitterness rather than a heavier resiny or grapefruit rind bitterness.
The body is very creamy with a fine soft effervescence.
