COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the great beer producing country of Belgium, some brewers have made it a tradition to give their beers an unusual name. Sometimes the name is curious, now and then it is diabolical and other times it is just plain silly. Damnation is our brewmaster’s interpretation of a Belgian style Strong Golden Ale. It has extraordinary aromas of banana and pear with mouth filling flavors of sweet malt and earthy hops. The lingering finish is dry and slightly bitter but very, very smooth.

Editor’s Note: this entry is for all batches EXCEPT batches 23, 46 and 69 see separate entry.

GABF 2006. Clear blonde color, tight white head. Aroma - slight DMS, not much else. Flavor - typical tripel flavors are prominent, but more smooth than expected. Not as pleasing overall. Not a great beer. DMS detracts; otherwise decent.

Concentrades and harmounius aroma of fruity esters of ĺears, Seville oranges, mild flowers and spices- Full and well-balanced flavour of pears, mild banana esters, fresh oranges, lime and earth with a harmounius aftertaste of yellow plums, candied pears, earth and spices. Great!

tap at the brewpub - Things started looking up at RR when I got to this ale. Pours up golden with a nice head. The aroma is fairly light with some malt and flowery notes. The flavor is actually not as sweet as I expected, but has the malt and candi sugar, along with some mild citrus and spice notes. There’s a touch of alcohol in the finish.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 14, 2006
Pours an enticing golden-yellow in the glass; short white head with good lacing. Shows a slight amount of lemon and banana in the nose; some spice. Pleasant up-front carbonation, Champagne-like bubbles, pepper, plenty of spice, honey and some banana - but spices are most prominent, approaching the profile of a tripel. Medium finish, ending peppery.

A fantastic replica of a strong belgium amber ale. i love this beer. its only drawback is its light body and its abrupt end. a great but subtle taste of citrus

Bottle. Thanks to realale420. Pours a heady golden color. Lots of lingering frothy goodness. Aroma is sweet, earthy, flowery and spicy. Flavor is very much the same with notes of banana clove and some spice followed by bready malts. A real nice balance to this beer. Not my favorite style, but a damn good example.
