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.

Thanks to DarkElf. Batch 003. Pours an active lush yellow with a clean white head. Aroma is yeasty and fruited. Spiced and a faint bananna along with a warm alcohol presence and a dry wine character. Flavor has a tangy fruityness to it. Bananna flavors and spices. Wheats and yeast, sweet and earthy. Its has a plesant dry finish and is a nice beer.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 29, 2005
Cloudy golden with a thick white head. A lot of foam but who cares. Terrific aroma with citrus, orange, pear, vanilla, banana, caramel and apple. The taste starts off with vanilla and pear mainly. The finish is where the orange really comes through. Mouthfeel is really malty with a great fruitiness. Just a terrific beer in my opinion.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 24, 2005
2005. Definitely worth aging as it is showing few complexities thus far. A lot of potential here with good crispness, balance, restrained Belgian qualities with some fruit and spice. Give it some time and sure good things will happen.

UPDATED: SEP 21, 2005 Pours cloudy gold/yellow, with a white head. Aromas are yeast, bananas, spice and fruit. Flavor starts sweet, and moves towards sour. Fruit, yeast, bananas, and some hops are all there. A nice one, a little different than some others of this style. Thanks to DarkElf for this bottle.

Sampled at Stone 9th Ann. party. Not too bad. I thought it was a tripel until now. Very fruity and very dry. Tasty, but not outstanding.

pineypower (2540) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2005
Bottled. Poured out a light straw head with a decent amount of lacing. The aroma was sweet and told of fruit and spices. The taste was very drinkable, with notes of banana and some hop on the finish, overall a solid beer, but lacked anything that set it out from the crowd

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2006 On tap at the Blue Dog. Pours a lighter yellow with a small white head. Aroma of banana, belgian spices and some citrus. Flavor of banana and citrus. Typical belgian strong ale flavors and aroma. 7-3-7-4-15 Bottle, batch 003. Pours a hazy golden with small floaties and an average white bubbly head. Aroma of banana, pear, spices, yeast, citrus and a slight sourness. Flavors along the same lines. Very nice mouthfeel, fizzy yet smooth and full. Enjoyed this one a good bit more from the bottle than the draft I had.
