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.

Bottle. Hazy, honey-golden pour with a fluffy head. Nose is Belgian yeast, a little sweatiness, apple cider vinegar, burnt sugar, taffy. Taste is pretty consistent with the olfactories. Gentle carbonation and this beer really coats your taste buds. Just the slightest bit of tartness combined with some fruitiness (pears, honey crisp apple). Good stuff from RR, but what else would you expect.

Stuedmaster (160) - Vista, California, USA - APR 6, 2014
This is some tasty stuff. Pours rich gold with a slight white head, no lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, pears, banana, grass, alcohol, and honey. Flavor is fruity, earthy, average bitterness for a Belgian ale, average sweetness. Full bodied with a rich mouthfeel. You can really taste the yeast on this one, with peppery notes. This beer delivers the goods, nice flavor and smooth finish.

Pours light, tastes light with a subtle hint of coriander. The beer has an extremely light pallet. So light that the taste doesn't linger between sips. I personally won't drink this beer indoors. It might be a great beer for a day out in the sun. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cybercat (2985) - Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Pours a beautiful hazy golden with a nice ivory head. Sharp aroma is fruity and malty, very tempting, with notes of pear, apple and raisin. Fruity flavor echoes the pear, raisin and apple of the aroma and adds a pleasing malty undertone. Firm, fizzy texture is fairly smooth and satisfying. Damned good!
