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.

Ungstrup (29369) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2006
[Enjoyed in the train from open brewing day to Københavnske Øldage - huge thanks to MadsBerg for sharing] An unclear orange beer with a white head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of alcohol, yeast, and peaches. The flavor is very sweet with notes of alcohol, yeast, peaches, and fresh grapes, with the big complexity the strong sweetness is leveled out. I like it.

omhper (19447) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2006
Bottled. Clear golden. Complex aroma including grassy hops, deep malt and almonds. Sweet and very soft. The velvetty softness gives the aromatic flavours a lot of room. Low bitterness. Very Belgian in style, not pumped up with direct flavours, but more laid back, and with a wonderful malt character.
