So... abbey style triple. Russian River has become a holy grail if you find their beers. If you find any of their beers you are in for a treat, floral, bread, hay

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

"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."
