COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This Belgian style Strong Dark Ale has a tawny brown color and aromas of banana and spice that dominate the initial bouquet of the beer. Lean malt flavors blend perfectly with fruit driven characteristics created by the classic Belgian yeast which fermented this ale. The alcohol content is deceptively smooth just like its sister beer Damnation. Brewed just once a year for a release in January.

Bottle, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours a very dark brown with with reddish hues where the light hits, it’s got a great head that leaves nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is nutty and rich with some leaf rot. It’s got some light chocolate, it’s aromatic, inviting and rich.

The flavor is nutty with some light leafiness. It’’s rich with some fruitiness while remaining only lightly sweet with a dry-ish finish. The bitterness & spicy notes are mild but well employed for balance.

Bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a moderate pillowy brown head on there. Nose has a lot of raisin coming through for me with a bit of caramel and spice as well. Taste is fairly sweet with the raisin really being salient on this.

"quite good - i think this is the better half of the RR/Avery Collaberation, but funny enough, neither beer is as good as the combo. this one has banana and spices, with other dark fruits and a heavier body as well. A very quaffable ale!"

Bottle thanks to Nielsen ! Pours a dull raw umber color with three fingers of khaki suds. Lots of sweet banana bread undertones, earthy spice, kola nut, candied anise, nutty bitterness, date, raisin, soft burnt sugar. Really well restrained yet packs a punch of flavors from beginning to end.
