Inferno Ale

750 mL corked & caged bottle. Not much pop on opening.
Poured into the Duvel tulip (seemed like the most natural glass) it forms a lovely, whipped ice-cream head with nice lace on top of a golden body – very Duvel like!
Nose is classical – Belgian yeasts, light sugars, alcohol, a touch of pepper and all the esters that you would expect.
Tastes replicate the nose and the tastes, BUT it’s drier, a tad warmer (in terms of alcohol), a touch more bitter and a touch less fruity than the nose suggested. Nice marmalade, citrus bitterness in the finish and the aftertaste. I prefer something a touch sweeter, but for me it’s still a very nice beer just don’t expect a lot of sweet character.
Easy drinking and it basically boils down to a very nice BSPA. Not perfect, but classic in many respects so depending on price and mood, I might reach for it again.
