Mad Fox Diabolik
I was visiting my friend in Fall Church and I suggested we stop in to Mad Fox Brewing to grab a growler of Diabolik. The beer pours a golden color with a bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma consists of banana, pepper, lemon, and yeast. The taste is sweet with banana at first before a strong alcohol and pepper bite snag the tongue. There is a dry finish with hints of lemon and cherry, which was quite enjoyable. The alcohol content is 8.8% ABV. I have enjoyed most of the beers I’ve ordered from Mad Fox, and this beer is without exception. It is a wonderful Belgian beer with well accented banana and yeast flavors, the best of which is a slight cherry hint.
