We turned our regular Damnation recipe into a Tripel. It is bittered with Tomahawk and has Sterling and Cascade in the mid-boil and finish. The beer was then aged on new American oak chips for two to three weeks.

Bottle shared with Tmoney99. No real pop upon opening. Pours a hazy orange golden color with no head due to the lack of carbonation. The aroma had citrus, oak, vanilla and some sweetness. The flavor has tangy citrus, some alcohol, oak, vanilla, hints of funk, very smooth and soft due to the lack of carbonation, I would not guess that this is 11 %. I would have liked to have had a regular Damnation next to this for comparison.

SHIG (4380) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle at Anchorage Sept 14 Tasting: Poured a golden to copper with white head. Aroma was oak, strong fruit, and light bready. Taste was very boozy with strong fermented fruit, malts, and oak.

"review from a few months ago, so details lacking. nice belgian strong/tripel (though a little dark and sweet for a classic triple). the oak aging was evident. fruity belgian yeast esters. very nice. only real flaw? the alcohol shows a wee bit too much."
