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.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2016
Aroma - has a mix of clove, coriander, sweet malt, and Belgian yeast. Appearance - the body is a dark gold that slopes down to a light gold, with abundant nucleation. The head is white and about 1/2" and stays tight and fades slightly into half it’s size. White walled lacing. Taste - has a decent amount of Belgian yeast, with a slightly sweet malt. There is a small amount of spice to include coriander and clove. Palate - is medium, the texture is smooth, the carbonation is average, and the finish is slightly spiced and otherwise mild.

20.08.2016, 0,375l bottle (2016 vintage) @ Crowbar:
Nice fizzy-creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet fruity, dried fruits, yeast, flowers, hay, minerals, grass, light malts. Taste is slightly dry mineraly, weeds, flowers, hay, yeast, bark, minerals, wet grass, paper, hints of medicine. Medium bitterness, slightly dry floral mouthfeel. Fair enough, not really my cup of tea.

swesson (453) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2016
From a bottle. Pours out an opaque gold and makes a thick white, Belgian head. Aroma is of biscuit, citrus. Tastes citrusy, tangy, and simply fantastic. A beautiful interpretation of the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
