Great beer,famous beer.This is one of the first you should try when you start
drinking strong beers.Has some of the best yeasts around and therefore deep
flavour that lasts.Goes well with "Hoegaarden Grand Cru" and "Carlsberg

the name duvel is a dialect of DUIVEL (=devil). the name was chosen because
there already was a beer named duivel at that time (Halse Duivel).

Very, verry good beer, although I must say that is overrated. Thereare plenty
other belgian beers that are better that Duvel includingthe one I'm drinking in
this moment, the Judas.

The Champagne of Beers, my favorite. To me, very refreshing anddrinkable -
despite the high alchohol content. However, Gerry and Davethe Boozehound are
both wrong. The Unibroue beer which most resemblesDuvel is "La Fin du Monde",
although I don't like it as much....

Was in Belgium over Christmas this past year (2003), and tried many beers there.
This was by far my favorite. I couldn't belive how smooth it was and how good
it tastes, for the amount of alcohol in it. Ive been away from Belgium for 3
months now, and have been craving another Duvel ever since. Somebody send me
one please!!!

what most people don't know is that you have 2 kinds of Duvel.The normal duvel
(see foto above) is 8.5 % alcohol. This one isrefermented in the bottle and
UNFILTERED.However Moortgat (brewery) also has a little brother: Green
Duvel:7.5% Alcohol, Bottle size 0.25 : this little brother didn't refermentin
the bottle and this one is filteredMaking it a nice to drink Duvel :-)

First of all, anyone who sais it sucks must go back to drinking beerfrom a can
or something! You should however leave the bottom cm in thebottle, cause if you
drink that the best part leaves, but you do getdrunk more though.This beer is
perfect for relaxing, or getting drunk fast, if you'reused to drinking jupiler,
or "beer out of cans" (WHICH IS SOMETHINGSHAMEFULL!) you'll drink it to fast and
have the worst hangover, COZYOU CAN'T HANDLE REAL BEER...Not the heaviest beer
could ever beat this one! Duvel is the perfectbeer, don't use it as a reference
if you want to enjoy others! Try andfind a better one AND TELL ME ABOUT IT!

The first time I tried Duvel I was underwhelmed(quite bitter after taste). But
since drinking it again(properly chilled) I understand where they are coming
from.It isn`t sweet like Leffe(birds drink) and its perfect withseafood. Someone
tell me if there is a better dry belgian beer!

When I first tried Duvel, it wasn't as pleasant tasting as the other Belgian
beers I regularly drank. However, aftera considerable time between tries, the
second attempt got mehooked. I currently buy the tall corked bottle. It's very
smooth with a definite hint of the alcohol. It's not anaftertaste, like German
beers tend to have. It has a similarcharacteristic with whitebeers, but doesn't
require the lemon wedge I find necessary to improve the taste, it holdsits own.

It is a relatively sweet beer that has a little kick to it. It goesdown fairly
easily. You would never know you are drinking 8.5% alcoholbeer. This could put
you on your ass in no time if you could afford agood six pack.
