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.

Prufrockstar (1145) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2013
Bottle. Hazy golden color, foamy white head, great retention. Aroma: banana bubble gum and cloves, citrus, grass, white wine. Peach? Fruity and floral. Taste: subdued sweetness quickly gives way to moderate bitterness. Flavor lingers nicely, but is surprisingly dry. palate: medium+ body, lively caronation, smooth, pleasantly mouthoverall-coating. Overall: well-crafted as one would expect from Russian river. Personally, though, I'd like this to be a touch sweeter, which is what I recollect from the draft version last time I had this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rating from notes. Batch 67 .375L pours ginger-ale golden-orange with an aroma of cloves and hay and a thin mottled head of medium bubbles. The taste is lightly bubble gum and cloves and hay. Smooth and crisp with a lightly sticky bitter finish.

Cloudy, light golden pour with a light head. Kind of winey aroma, not at all unpleasant. Tastes like flowers and grape, a bit of familiar Belgian spice. Nice long, dry finish with a peculiar and interesting balance. Very, very good. Would I drink again? yes. Would I order again? yes please!

GlasgowTAD (127) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - NOV 17, 2014
Pours golden (as the style would suggest) with a fluffy, foamy white head that sits atop for quite some time. Aroma is earthy, with hints of hay in a barn. Taste is initially coriander, some lemon then sweet malts, almost Pilnser-ish, with a slightly warming and spicy finish.

On tap at Russian River. Hazy light Golden, very frothy stable White head. Nose has a lot of grapes. Taste is balanced, but on the grapey side, with notes of yeast in the finish. Medium body with soft carbonation.
