Bottle was purchased and consumed at the Broad Street Bullies Pub at Xfinity Live! in Philadelphia.
Beer was brought to the table uncaged and uncorked along with the proper glassware, a tulip glass.
A - The beer pours a very cloudy, hazy golden color. A one finger, rather dense head on the initial pour. Small particles of yeast from the in-bottle fermentation are floating around. A small amount of lacing left after drinking.
S - A nice aroma of yeast and fruit-like sweetness.
T - A very smooth, easy drinking beer. There is a mixture of spiciness, along with the classic banana taste. A background of an earthy/grassy taste is noticeable as well. The alcohol is pretty well disguised but does peak through a bit during the sampling.
M - A moderate to heavier consistency. Light carbonation.
O - A good beer. This is a style that I don't normally lean towards but since it was a beer I had never had before and had heard a lot about, I decided to give it a try. I know that I was out at a pub but at $9/bottle, I don't think this is worthy of a repeat purchase on a return visit. It's not that its a bad beer, just simply that for a cost/enjoyment value, I'd get something else.

Poured out of bottle into tulip.
This beer had decent nose with hints of papaya and pineapple. A bit of pepper.
Taste followed the nose with the tropics and then had a pepper bite ending with the hoppiness. A touch of malts are the backbone.
Overall I wasn't overly impressed with this beer but it fit the category quite well. I would take the peppery funkiness of a Saison over the peppery hoppiness of Damnation.
