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.

As I'm not a porter fan, this isn't an ale I'll rave about, but it was pleasant nonetheless
