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 brewmasters 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.

Editors Note: this entry is for all batches EXCEPT batches 23, 46 and 69 see separate entry.

Batch 077, 375ml into a tulip glass. A - Murky dark amber body. Massive fluffy off whit head. Great lacing and retention. S - Massive vegetal notes. Coriander, lemons, hay, grass, spices, Belgian yeast then...BAM...celery or something. Just has a very soup like aroma. T - Lemons, hay, and coriander spice with a large Belgian yeast spiciness. Im still getting a large vegetal quality to it. Alcohol is noticeable. Mouth feel is spritzy and dry with a medium slightly coating mouth feel. O - I think its just the freshness of this beer. I was getting more vegetal and hard spice notes than anything. Hopefully I can try an aged one at some point.

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 (384) - 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

Saeglopur (1821) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUL 30, 2016
375 ml bottle, bottled 09/01/15.
Dark golden, clear body, with a big, fluffy, lacing, slightly yellowish head.
Aroma of yeast, dough, sweet bread, ripe sweet fruits, berries, candy, some spices.
Taste follows this, with additional honey notes.
Medium, a bit creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes yeasty, sweet, a bit dry, a bit spicy, fruity.

Very nice. Yeasty and quite sweet, but really well balanced, very smooth to drink. Not among my favourite style examples, but enjoyable nonetheless.
