look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Sampled from a 22oz bottle purchased in a Brussels bottle shop for an outrageous price.

A - Deep black with a moderate tan head. It clings to the glass nicely. But lots of chunks; even in the earlier pours.

S - Blackberry, chocolate and roasted malts. The fruit certainly comes through nicely.

T - Lots of blackberry supported by a cast of chocolate, roasted malts, figs and Belgian spice. It works for the most part but there were moments when the fruit flavors didn't fully blend. The alcohol is very well hidden.

M - Slightly thin for the style, possibly due to an initially high carbonation of aggressive bubbles.

O - A tasty beer but not worth the price. I had a sample at the Bruges Beer Festival. That would have been enough. I didn't need to pay the ridiculous price. And it doesn't seem to be just the central Brussels shop. I've seen the Damnation series overpriced in the De Struise shop in Bruges and in US shops. It's good but not that good.
