Just trying to keep it within the lines. This is one hell-ova beer. Served fresh at the wonderful Russian River Brewery pub, only one word for this, if you understand Belgian Style Dark ale, excellent. Perfectly balanced, subtle but substantial. Sweetness controlled by excellent malts and the background caramel simply teases the taste buds for a smooth finish that lingers on a tantalizing thread of wonderful elegance. Word association: chocolate, molasses, cherry, black grape. One review of this Salvation said this is not an everyday beer, it's a very substantial 9% ABV, lets hope it doesn't get to be too everyday. It is a sip and enjoy a beautifully crafted jewel from RR Brewing Co.

I drink this beer 3-4 times a week. I have the pleasure of living in Santa Rosa and thank god every time I put my lips on a Russian River Beer. Dark amber, last batch a little cloudy, with caramel and molasses finish. I usually start and finish my sesh with this beer. I cook for a living and would pair salvation with Duck, Pork, Foie Gras, and any poultry.
