Inferno Ale brewed by The Lost Abbey - San Marcos, California


Inferno Ale brewed by The Lost Abbey - San Marcos, California

Corruption, Greed and Lust, theyíre all represented on he books today. Tomorrow theyíll be stringing Gluttony, Desire and Sloth. Go ahead, tell yourself youíre better than all of them. But you canít. Hell can be funny like that. Down here itís all just sin. Everyone here is screwed just like you. They donít care who you sliced, diced or cheated. No one is escaping this heinous place.

Your roommate is an axe murderer. Eerily, heís not threatening. How can he be? The Fallen Angel owns your body, mind and soul. As such, no one can take your life. Itís 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.

Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance: The cork was very difficult to remove, but rewarded my blisters with a very satisfying pop. Inferno pours with two to three fingers of stark white head. Clearish straw-yellow with lots of bubbles. Scattered lacing.

Aroma: Fruity/estery yeast. A bit of dry grain. Slight citrus.

Taste: Very satisfying! Dry-sweet with white pepper, pineapple, banana, and lots of Belgian yeast. I don't have a lot to say about it, but it's definitely a solid example of the style, though reminiscent of a tripel as well.

Mouthfeel: Excellent. The perfect balance of spicy-dry and fruity-wet. Light grain and barely noticeable alcohol.

Overall: An unmitigated success that cements The Lost Abbey in my mind as an excellent brewery. Highly recommended if you like Belgian pale ales. I would drink again, despite the steep price tag. Drinkable and undeniably pleasant.
