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.

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Bottle in LA. Pours hazy golden with foamy white head. No lacing. Some fruity belgian yeast esters in the aroma. High carbonation, medium body. No sweetness, finishes very dry with moderate bitterness and some hop aroma. Some warming alcohol on the finish. I would prefer it fruitier and less bitter (damn the style guidelines). Good BGS.

Damnation is a very good Belgian ale that leans a little on the stronger side. It’s a beer that lends itself more to a slow sip than a big chug or gulp, but its still smooth enough to not bite back after swallowing.

Bottle to goblet. Look: thick golden color, lasting white head. Bubbles are small and numerous. Nose is fruity, yeast, orange, pineapple. Taste has some Belgian Wang, as expected, but not too much. Taste is refreshing, bread, orange, pineapple. Smooth finish. Beer is very bubbly all the way through. This is not my style of beer, but this is a very well crafted brew.

jbruner (4107) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with fluffy white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma and taste are big on the Belgian esters, clean and nice with the booze well hidden. Dry finish, good carbonation, booze well hidden, solid interpretation.

willisread (2538) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 19, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting. Thanks Jon! Pours a lightly hazy yellow with a one-finger head of foam that lingers throughout. Banana cream pie nose with some light pear and green apple aromas with some light grass. Malt-forward on the palate with some nice Belgian yeast action morphing throughout. Easy drinking and hides the ABV very well. Siky, creamy finish.
