Russian River Damnation is a very clear, golden beer with a creamy, white head that has outstanding retention and lacing. It smells like banana bread and clove. It has a smooth, medium body and a dry finish. It tastes like cloves and must, almost like gewerztraminer. It's sweet and fruity toward the end with a note of pear. The aftertaste is musty and phenolic. This is a solid and well done beer. It's very spicy.
