Not a bad beer, if you can ignore the price. I picked it up for $20+ for a 4-pack. It behaves just like one would expect a Belgian ale to behave - thick head, lots of lacing. The beer is malty and mild, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. I tend to enjoy a bit more complexity in my beers, especially if I'm paying good money for them. If you can afford it, you can drink a lot of this and not get loaded. Ultimately, I'd recommend New Belgium's 1554 over this (especially at that price point.)

Poured into a chalice, this had an appearance of dark brown color. A finger’s worth of off white foamy head snuck underneath at a nice pace. Sly rings of lace. The aroma spits out baked apple, vanilla sweetness, Belgian sugars with a sly Belgian spice underneath. Milk chocolate, a touch of coffee bean and some warming dark fruits with a crisp little dry woody edge flowing in neatly. The flavor yields initially to the sweet side of those previously mentioned aromas. Dry woodiness comes in with a touch of the coffee. Apples sweet bready aftertaste flows into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice balancing sweet feel sticking to my tongue nicely. Not cloying, almost but malty smooth. Overall, pretty nice Belgian dark ale.

Porter-like beer.
Nothing special.

My first from B.O.M., yet another Belgian cut from a similar bolt as the famous self-styled "Mad Brewer."
Compared to the classic darks in the Belgian tradition, Hell pushes to be a hybrid.
Its nose has the bready malts and the first taste clarifies this Belgian yeast intends to complements its malts their way. But, the after-taste tells me this part wants to be an American porter... hoppier than expected and then dries out a bit... gives me toast.
Would I buy Hell again?
Yes, but would drink it side-by-side with B.O.M.'s blonde from Heaven... just to check out the imaginative range of this next generation Belgian Mad Brewer.

Bottle from Brewers Haven. Pours out a dark brown with small foamy beige head. Was hoping this would be better than the "From Heaven", but not so. Malty, roasty aroma close to porter. Taste also seems to mimic a porter, hints of chocolate, but a bit of Belgian yeast turns this back into Belgian territory. The more I taste it, this seems awfully close to a porter.

Dark brown color with a short lived head that settled to a thin skin of suds. Moderate amount of sticky lacing is left down the glass. Aroma of red wine, dark fruit, lightly roasted malt, and Belgian yeast. Some vinous qualities in the flavor as well that are complimented by the dark malt that lends notes of chocolate, dark bread, caramel, and lightly roasted coffee. Not the deepest tasting Belgian dark ale, but does have nice flavor. Feels a touch thin in body as well but has nice carbonation from the bottle conditioning.

Pours a clear, dark brown color. 5/4 inch head of a tan color. Great retention and good lacing. Smells of roasted malt, strong sweet malt, euro yeast, hint of wood, hint of alcohol, and some burnt aromas. Fits the style of a Belgian Dark Ale. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of roasted malt, sweet malt, slight pale malt, slight alcohol, hint of wood, and slight euro yeast. Overall, great appearance, good aroma, body, but the blend is overly burnt-centric.

This was an interesting and inventive Belgian beer. Pours a clear dark mahogany with a thin tan head. The smell is sweet and roasted, almost a peanut better quality, thicker rich mouthfeel. An interesting mix of a porter and a Belgian dark ale. Really inventive and deliciously toasty.
