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.

A nice mellow blend of hops malt and yeast. Slight ester, medium body, clean aftertaste. A very good strong ale, without a whole lot of yeast personality

Hoppier than the average Belgian golden ale, but this has a pleasant dryness reminiscent of the better versions of the style.

jonnyguns (800) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle. Poured a clear yellow golden pour with a nice white head. Nose has a nice balance of Belgium yeast, citrus, dough malts and cloves. Nice carbonation. Taste is upfront Belgium yeast but the citrus/spices come to the party at the back end. Doughy malt backing too makes for easy drinking. Booze isn't evident. Pretty delicious stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

emartell (222) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - DEC 12, 2013
Aroma elegante y complejo. A pesar de no ser tan intenso, es facil de percibir distinguiendo notas sumamente frutales entre las que destacan la manzana, uvas, así como suaves aromas citricos principalmente la naranja, así como notas aromáticas del lupulo. Color naranja ligeramente turbio, cuerpo redondo, coronade espuma media con una larga retención. Carbonatacion media. En boca es suave, se percibe ligera y frutal. Al paladarves una cerveza diferente. Suave y ligera, en ningún momento se perciben sus 7.75 grados de alcohol. Las notas frutales son faciles de percibir, principalmente citricas. En resumen es una cerveza muy interesante, compleja, suave, frutal, pero a la vez, sin reunir ciertas características del estilo que sería interesante reuniera. Aun así fabulosa y muy recomendable.

Damnation is a rather refined and balanced version of a Belgian ale. Malt sweetness carries flavor initially while hops create a pronounced if somewhat gentle bitterness lingering on the back palate. There is subtle but appealing complexity and depth.

Bottled 07AUG12 Pours a hazy golden apricot with a solid quilt of fine light cream foam. Smells of belgian yeast, grain, bread, hints of tangerine, some clay and a bit of sweetness. Flavor has a clean belgian golden flavor with plenty grain, fruity grapy esters, some banana, a bit of funk and some peach. Body is heavier than I’d prefer with a decent sharp and yet soft carb with an overall creamy feel. Nice beer. Serving type: bottle 10-20-2012
