COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From the blackest depths of the brewhouse comes Damien, Child of Darkness. Spawned from the usually discarded remnants of Darkness, Damien is a dry-hopped black ale. Flavors of roasted malt and dark brown sugar suffocated by aromas of tangerine and pine.

On tap at Darkness Day. Poured brown black with creamy tan head. Light aroma of smoke and resin. Light carb and med bod. Balanced tasty charred hop taste. I dig.

Like a porter and tastes nothing like Darkness even though it is made from the same used malts as Darkness. Had it once and that was enough for me.

Draft at the Blue Nile. Pours a deep, dark brown color with a tan head and some lacing. Aroma is lightly roasty, some pine hops. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, roasty, some chocolate and coffee, pine hops, with a light bitter finish. Good, but not great.

On tap. A good diversion to this cousin of Darkness - but overall Iíll take other Black IPAs over this one. Respectable though.

This was a great black ale. Not overly hopped like most black ales. This is very drinkable and enjoyable!

16 oz. pour, on tap at Busterís on 28th. Consumed on 11-4-12. Pours a clear, dark brown with an amber hue and a small amount of beige head. Weak but enjoyable, dry and hoppy aroma features coffee with cream scent. Pleasant taste is well balanced, both hoppy and malty: Coffee, caramel, and some citrus elements. Light to medium body. Lively in the palate. Easy to drink. Overall, the beer is nice but not special.

Tap @ Darkness Day 2012. Pours a dark brown appearance with a cream colored head. Pretty roasty, dark chocolate, light coffee, quite piney hoppy aroma. Big grapefruity/piney hoppy, roasty dark malty flavor. Pretty interesting.

Decent black ipa. Obviiusly some elevated malt complexity. It isnt too mish mashed. Solid.

Tap at Darkness Day. Pours dark with a little cream colored head. Aroma is light roasted malts, caramels and other flavors. Flavor matches aromas. Very good beer.
