Lost Abbey Inferno

Sitting around here researching my next homebrew recipe which will be a Belgian Golden Strong Ale collaboration with my friend Brian from Baltimore, and I decided to pop the cork on a nice example of the style. The Lost Abbey Inferno is a Duvel-like beer. There is a lot of Belgian yeast influence on this beer and it leans more toward the spicy/peppery side, with only a little fruitiness. Very good, very easy to drink, even at 8.5% ABV. Lots of breweries make good examples of this style; Avery Salvation, Russian River Damnation, Brewer's Art Ozzy, Bruery Levud's, Alesmith Horny Devil and definitely Inferno are some of my favorites.
