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 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.

Very good, but not great. I was expecting something a bit more complex. Not surprisingly, there are a few better beers from this brewery!

_angst_ (4778) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 13, 2017
Hazy tiny burnt deep yellow pour with a frothy white head. Crackers, red pears and subtle but complex brett nose. Hay, minerals, dew and barnyard. Spicy and tiny fruity taste. Dry slightly sparkling mouthfeel. Simple but very much to the point. Plenty of estery fruits with a clean brett profile. Nice beer!

Bottle--thanks, Bruce! Sweet pineapple juice aroma with some pilsner malt and peppery phenolics. Hazy light orange under a thin white collar with a fine bead. Delicate honey and eucalyptus flavour with a dry, subtle farmhouse character. Light body, medium carbonation, refreshing.

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 its 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.
