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. 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.

TheHOFF43 (1756) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - OCT 28, 2012
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.

Pours a dark dark brown, just light enough that you can tell itís clear. Smell is bread with some pine and citrus notes. Like a very resinous black IPA. The taste definitely holds that pine, but with quite a bit more bread, some toffee, and a pleasant brown-sugariness which I fell in love with. I donít know if theyíll ever do this again, but Iíd drink more.

Tripplebrew (777) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Pours a clear, clean nut brown with frothy tan head. A lot of lacing on glass. Aroma is toffee, raisin and rising bread dough. Flavor is very fresh grapefruit notes with a brown sugar back. Body is light with active carbonation.

Had this at Darkness day, poured a nice dark brown color. Had a nice hoppy/malty flavor, outshined by Darkness though.
