Pours an opaque super dark brown with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Thick swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, roasted nut, and burnt caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with burnt toast, char, coffee bean, and nut flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of roast bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with lots of roast qualities that are better in the smell to me.

Serving type: bottle.

cheeky here, from hell, with an abv of 666, i mean, nice guys! the beer is cool but i think its the lesser of the two, still, neat to try them side by side. this isnt all that dark, somewhat of a brown ale look to it, nice froth and excellent carbonation on the feel. the nose is more belgian yeast than dark malt, and the flavor has quite a bit of hops to it. sort of a weird in between as far as styles go, with the belgian yeast in a hoppy darker beer. unique though, and real drinkable with just a subtle dark malt flavor to go with the bittering hops and fruity ester heavy yeast. seems light with the soda pop carbonation, but something is weird with the proportions of this one, as drinkable as it is. i liked this, but probably wouldnt buy it. the from heaven version though is an outstanding belgian pale, definitely worthy of being stocked in the fridge. again, cool to have these opposing brews in succession.

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high light tan head that died down, leaving some patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: The smell has light to moderate aromas caramel cause with notes of chocolate.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and tastes like caramel and chocolate flavorings that would be added to coffee, with notes of coffee flavors and bits of dark fruits.
M: It feels a bit shy of medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is quite complex for a Belgian Dark Ale and has the depth of flavors you would expect from a Belgian Strong Dark Ale, yet it is easy to drink because it doesn't have a high alcohol content.

330 ml bottle into tulip glass, M4TRP bottle code. Pours hazy very dark brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, chocolate, toast, coffee, brown bread, brown sugar, raisin, plum, fig, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, earthy hop, and fruity/spicy yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, chocolate, toast, coffee, brown bread, brown sugar, raisin, plum, clove, pepper, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, chocolate, coffee, brown bread, brown sugar, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and robustness of dark/roasted malt, fruity/spicy yeast, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/yeast balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly crisp/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good Belgian dark ale. Good complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt, earthy hop, and yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

The absolute, unrelenting eradication of my back inventory continues. I just want to return to The CANQuest (TM), but the bottles glare at me for ignoring them. This one came from The Fridge and went into my fridge.

From the bottle: "Hell of an ale brewed with home roasted malt"; "Unfiltered ale with flavor evolution".

Holy Hell! I popped the cap and almost immediately, I got foam coming up the neck and quickly running down the side of the bottle. I placed the bottle inside the glass until I could regroup. I guess that I am lucky that it was not an outright gusher! I can also read, so I utilized a VERY gentle pour and only filled about a quarter of the glass before allowing it to rest. As you may imagine, I ended up with two fingers of frothy, rocky, light-tan head that off-gassed, popped and fizzed its way out of existence. Color was a medium-brown (SRM = > 27, < 34) with ruby highlights. Nose was another raucous melange! I got dried, dark fruits, coffee, dark chocolate, mustiness and even vinousness off of this one. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium, but quite effervescent. The roasted malt was the clear driver in this beer. It tasted of coffee and dark chocolate in the mouth, initially, but warming, it took on a dried, dark fruit aspect. I kept thinking of a Cadbury Fruit & Nut Bar, sans the nuttiness. Finish was semi-dry, with the yeast really having done their job, but at the same time, leaving enough sweetness so as not to make it totally dry. This had a vinousness that was interesting, but kind of outside of my scope. If I were to buy another bottle, I might allow it to age for a while.

Served in a tulip glass at Bibgy's Pour House.

"Scooter from Hell". Gotta love it, especially with that stated ABV... Anyway, this stuff pours a very dark sienna topped by a finger of khaki foam. The nose comprises toasted rye bread, light chocolate, light clove, brown sugar, and a pinch of black pepper. The taste brings in more of the same, with the spices melding very well with the cocoa, and everything fading into a toast haze. The body is a light-leaning medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, a nice Belgian dark, one that balances its spice load with its grains' roastiness pretty well.

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.

Pours a dark mahogany brown with a half finger dark khaki head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, rye, brown sugar, light clove and cinnamon. Flavor is heavily spice dark fruit, caramel and chocolate malt, earthy dried herbs, clove, brown sugar flavor (but it is not sweet). Finishes with more earthy summer herbs and herbal bitterness, somewhat astringent. Medium bodied with great carbonation. An interesting and earthy spice take on the style. The initial flavors are intriguing, with quite a bit of complexity. Flavors of clove, rosemary and sage, although I'm not sure those were used here. Finish is herbal, almost medicinal bitterness. I enjoyed the flavor trip, but it left a bit too astringent flavor lingering. I liked the same herbal flavors in the Heaven better, but Hell is like that, I guess. Kinda grew on me as I drank it, but it is an unusual Belgian dark.

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.

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.
