Notes/Commercial Description:
We turned our regular Damnation recipe into a Tripel. It is bittered with Tomahawk and has Sterling and Cascade in the mid-boil and finish. The beer was then aged on new American oak chips for two to three weeks.

Bomber from Boyton Liquors San Jose CA - Thanks to zacs for this!

Appearance - Hazy yellow/amber colour with an average size fizzy/frothy off-white coloured head. There is a low amount of carbonation showing and there is some decent lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes.

Smell - Breads/grains, grapes, yeast, apples/pears

Taste & Mouth - There is a below average amount of carbonation and I can taste malts, breads, grains, and grapes. There is also some pear/apple and something along the lines of almonds.

Overall – Didn't really pick up on the oak as much as I would have expected, but a fantastic beer. A really great drink to sip on during the colder weather. I liked this one much better than the regular Damnation.
