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.

Diablokev (146) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JUL 14, 2011
The aroma is of light spice and fruit, the appearance is a honey gold with a large frothy white head. The taste is of spice and fruit with a long fruit aftertaste. Overall a nice beer that is easy to drink.

Belgian yeast, banana, some grainy flavors. This tastes like a Tripel, which isn’t a style I’m particularly fond of.

Bottle: Clear, golden, medium head and great lace. Very lifted malty nose. Intense. Clean. Esters and grain. Classic Belgium strong ale. Honey. Off dry, not sour and medium low bitterness. Dense flavor, even texture and medium long palate. Honey malt and banana palate. Such a classic Belgium ale profile.

Mep3222 (395) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Lemony yeasty earthy aroma. Flavor is lemongrass and Belgian yeast, with some slight sweetness. Light bubbly carbonation. A step above redemption, smooth and balanced, a good almost saison like beer without the funkiness of some saisons (this isn't a saison, but it has many saison qualities). Not as good as Russian River sours but a worthy beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

RRistow12 (215) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Tasted from draft. Pours a mostly clear light gold with white head and good lacing. Aroma of banana, lemon, peach, spices, yeast. Taste is incredibly smooth with similar taste to nose. Lot of spices with belgian yeast. Citrus hops flavors and malty sweet backbone. Well balanced and medium bodied. Very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
