look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from Bottle to an over sized wine glass

A Pours a light, golden yellow with a huge foamy, near-white head. Good retention and lacing. Left over lacing on the glass.

S better than the regular Damnation, the oak comes through Significantly.f light malt, lemon, toffee, some kind of tropical fruit, spice and ginger.

T Initial flavor is sharp and medium sweet. Citrus and light pepper in around the middle and then things gets progressively sweeter until the finish. Mild tartness on the finish . A hint of alcohol in the aftertaste but is masked fairly well in the full flavor.

M Fairly light, good low carbonation, very fitting of this beer. Finishes Great.

O Very enjoyable, worth the purchase and I would probably get it again for friend to try.

This beer looks awesome, and the one thing I noticed is that the head sticks around so long. In most beers it will disappear, but mine still looks beautiful.

Smell wise, you get exactly what you'd expect. You get that big yeasty, spicy note that you get in belgian style beers like this.

Taste wise though, is where this beer starts to excel, It asserts itself on the pallet nicely. Very fruity, apply/ tart like notes.

A little something special for my 200th review. Had on-tap at the brewpub yesterday in Santa Rosa. The board said 10.5% abv, 56 IBUs, and described the beer as an oak-aged triple.

a - pours a golden amber color, slightly hazy, one-finger head with decent retention for the abv, and nice lacing

s - some lemon/citrus noticeable in the aroma, oak more evident as the beer warmed, apple and pear also detectable, alcohol hints with a little spice particularly clove

t - nice maltiness up front, big fruity flavors develop, pear and red apple most evident, nice oak accents, especially as the beer warms, some spice/clove along with a nice alcohol burn on the finish

m - medium-bodied, moderate carbonation, sweet but somewhat dry finish

d - somewhat limited due to the 10.5% abv, but a great beer to sip on , alcohol is there but not overwhelming in the taste, very complex flavor keeps you drinking

Quite a bit different from the regular Damnation. I like this a bit more than the regular because the flavor and aroma are more complex and rewarding. Great one-off beer by RRBC. Better get your hands on this while it lasts.

Christ all mighty. Moving 24 cases of beer and more importantly, about 80 trips down (and up) 4 flights of stairs with an armful of garbage can be tiring - who'd think that? I need a crisp, clean, refreshing beer and a 10.75% tripel (courtesy of waltonc) is what I have in mind. Thank you, Chris. This is batch 46 Into my RR -tion tulip

Crystal clear light orange with a dense, frothy, eggshell-white head, this beer is absolutely redolent. Head retention is excellent too, and the lace this beer leaves is gorgeous.

The nose is excellent. Fruity with a blend of citrus, pears and apricots and some white grapes, this also has a mellow spiciness with white pepper, and a moderate tannin character. The oak integrates very very well with the fruit and the spice character, and just a little vanilla is present as well. Not surprisingly, the alcohol is present on the back end. Quite excellent in integration, this.

The palate opens with a noticeable alcohol bite and prominent, juicy, fruity character with citrus, pears and ripe apricots. Moderate vanilla comes through mid-palate, and coupled with the rather big alcohol character, it makes me think of what a good flavored vodka would taste like. Mild spice character mid-palate with a little clove, a little pepper. Not particularly yeasty. While a little sweet, this beer dries up quite well on the finish. Medium-light in body with a moderate carbonation, the finish is particularly excellent, with a blend of fruit, spice and drying tannins. Vinnie does not disappoint. This is going to fuck me up, but it's going to be a pleasant trip.

Batch 069 of Batch 23

Pours golden yellow and slightly cloudy. A huge cream colored head forms and forces me to pour from the bottle three times before I could fit it in the tulip, even when I poured extremely slow. The head left some huge chunky lacing.

Smell is yeast tangy, hint of pepper and citrus.

Taste is quite different. Oak seems and undertone to the whole drink, with yeast being forward, a sourdough break like malt and a very woody nice aftertaste.

Feels incredible, smooth and luxurious. A light bubbly bite reminds you of the carbonation, but makes this feel much lighter than the 10.75%.

A great drinking beer for it's huge ABV. The oak adds something to all the aspects of flavor and texture. Too bad this is quite pricey, still, a very nice beer.

Tap at O'Briens 15th annv. If I could get this damnation all the time I would. Oak gives that added texture, a little vanilla and superb body and length. Really a stand out beer for me. Vinnie noted it was batch 46, I guess it seeks oak every 23 batches. Would love to see this with 1 or 2 years of age. This was from Keg and outstanding.

Got this in a trade awhile Damnation 23 (46)!

A-Bottle makes a HUGE champagne popping sound when cork is removed. Body is a crystal clear pale amber hue. Pours with a 1 finger white fizzy head that fades to a thick collar pretty quickly and little to no lacing is left behind in the glass.

S- Nose is quite interesting. It contains dry, dusty oak, a hint of acidic tartness, vinegar, a slight sugary sweetness, some funky yeast, and a hint of apple.

T- Flavor contains a hint of smoke initially and dry woody oak. Background contains a good amount of spicy belgian yeast. The finish is actually very spicy with the spicy yeast increasing and what seems to be a ginger hotness. A moderate amount of spicy heat lingers on for awhile.

M- Light body with soft carbonation. Relatively smooth and yeasty.

D- Overall this beer is kinda quirky-but awesome. I love the complexity and the spicy heat that the flavor profile provides. Not really what I was expecting at all as this is completely different from regular damnation-but still great brew by RR.

batch 46

a: This was a clear golden color with some peachy highlights. It poured with a huge, craggy white head that left plenty of lace in its wake.

s: Interesting! Oaky aromas of tobacco and apricots take center stage. Lurking in the backround are some warm, perfumed fruity esters that suggest pineapple, bananas, and raisins.

t: Nice balance between sweet, oaky tobacco and perfumed estery fruits. The finish is a long lasting tanic tartness.

m: Long lasting, creamy carbonation.

d: Big thanks to rallisonfor this one. I've never had anything like it. Absolutely fantastic and well worth seeking out.

Found this at O'Brien's in SD.

Pours a nice light amber color. Like honey. No real head and minimal lacing.

No real smell. A little alcohol and Belgian yeast but not much else.

Taste is nothing like smell. You take a sip and the carbonation hits the top of your mouth. Then a slight bitterness hits the roof of your mouth and the sides of your tongue. Then a very nice malty oak flavour that is pretty sweet hits your tongue. It finishes with a bitter sweet aftertaste. Very nice.

Mouthfeel is perfect for this beer. No complaints.

Drinkabilitu is very high because if I had more bottles of this stuff I would hoard them and never share. Can't wait till they make another 23 batches

A-Cloudy orange/yellow with a two finger head that leaves behind some lacing.

S-Lemon, yeast, some wood and spices.

T-Lots of lemon, spices, wood is present and there is a noticeable amount of bitterness.

M-Light, fully carbonated.

O-Like the regular Damnation a fine brew. The wood flavors creep in ever so slightly and once again there is a solid hop backbone in the finish.

In a bottle from the Celebratorfest. And I forgot to try Consecration (grrr!!!)

A - Pours a straw yellow, with a little over 1 finger of white head, which dissipates slow and leaves beautiful lacing.

S - Oak, vanilla, cardamom, and a slight bit of spicy hops.

T - More oakiness present in the taste, with vanilla, cardamom, and a hint of citrus. Bittering hops are slightly spicy with subtle notes of citrus.

M - Well-balanced with a touch of creaminess, but the aftertaste is slightly dry.

D - Overall good. Will drink again.

Enjoyed on 11.07.11 from a brown, corked shorty poured into a D'Achouffe glass ever so gently.

A: Pours a yellow-orange with a pillowy head on top. Very appealing indeed.

S: Sweeter than the base Damnation, with a sweet candy & citrus nose.

T&M - Really nice combo of rich, yeast in conjunction with oak, candy sugar, and slight citrus profile. Well-balanced. Really a wonderful taste, much better than the base Damnation. Very crisp and refreshing. Delightful. I nearly forgot the ABV was so high - not really a trace of esters present.

D - Very nice. Very drinkable. Appropriately-priced (albeit pricey in comparison).

Overall, a great representation of the style. Kudos again, RR.

A- orange with thick head.

S- oak, yeast, banana.

T- oak, belgium yeast, fruit, for some reason this beer has a bubble gum flavor to me (double bubble).

M- nice carbonation, the alcohol is masked well for being an 11%.

O- I like this beer this beer a lot. I want to age a few bottles but they don't last. Long in my cellar.

Bottle into Old Engine Oil chalice, batch 046. Thanks Henry (Bankhead) for the chance to try this one!

Pours orangey-gold, lightly hazy, into a chalice, with a huge creamy white head and beautiful walls of lacing. Great effervescence from the laser etching at the bottom. After a while, the dense head ends up as a nice, solid cap on the bottom.

Nose is smooth peppery yeast, very nice prominent vanilla note from the oak, some golden fruit.

Taste is sooo Smooth. big woody vanilla notes up front hang with the peppery yeast and the golden fruit underneath (apricot) to blend into a fantastic combination. Bit of a dry, peppery bite at the lightly bitter finish. Exhale is more oak, sweet vanilla - definitely not hidden in this one. Definitely get a rich apricot-and-cream feeling with this one alongside the peppery bite. Delicious.

Mouthfeel is beautiful - creamy and lush from the cap that never seems to go away, full without being heavy or syrupy. Active carbonation that's plenty lively without ever really biting back.

No problem finishing a bottle of this on my own. Pretty sure I could have started in on my next without much problem. Smooth all the way around. Nicely done.

a - pours a beautiful deep amber, with a decent head and lacing to the top of the riedel tumbler
s - citrus on the nose with a slight white wine smell (oak)
t- very smooth for the abv, but i guess that's why they aged in oak, (be careful), oak highlights throughout especially when warmed
m-rather thinker mouthful than the original damnation, not an overwhelming amount of alcohol taste, just the right carbonation but my mouth and lips feel a bit sticky
d-very dangerous beer to drink if you don't pay attention, obviously a definite sipper you should share with someone. A great beer to have as a Digestive after a great meal in SF.

Luckily I am able to get this beer easily from my favorite shop in SF, City Beer! I will lay down several bottles because this one will be a great beer if not already in a few years. I have sent(traded) at least a 6 back east and can't wait to see them review it.

On tap at City Beer in San Francisco. Pleasantly surprised to see this on tap, and in bottles on the shelves.

Pours a lightly clouded blonde color, with nice white head.

Aromas are of oak, some mixed spices, cream, and sugar.

Taste is of sharp hard candies and sugar. There are also some spice, cloves, oak, and light creams. Finish is crisp, with a hint of bright citrus hops on the finish. Well put together and tasty triple. (At least they said this was more like a triple...)

Mouthfeel is great. Very full, crisp, and thick.

Drinkability is quite good. I was shocked at how easily this went down. What a well put together and complex triple this one is. I think this is a beer that would benefit from some time too. It could smooth out even more, and be super. With that said, it's still an excellent beer.

375ml bottle (Batch 69 - 10.75% ABV) received in trade with avaldivia. Thanks! Poured into a Russian River "TION" glass.

A - Pours a yeasty hazed pale golden color with a thick two fingers of fluffy white foam with good retention and leaving behind thick webs of lacing on the glass.

S - Quite fruity on the nose, prominant Belgian yeast spiciness, some fresh hops, a bit of alcohol...not really getting much of any oak on the aroma.

T - A good strong hit of booze up front mixed with Belgian yeast character - pepper and cloves, cinnamon...a firm hop bitterness, getting some fruity oranges, candy sugar and some wood definitely appears in the flavor. Wonderful balance here.

M - Medium/full bodied with a somewhat high carbonation level that is tingly and a bit foamy at the same time. Plenty of Belgian yeast character. nice balance of sweet malt, Belgian spice, warm booze. Really, I have to say this is a very well balanced tripel. I typically find tripels a bit too hot and boozy...tending towards a slow sipper/one in a session type beer. This has an alcohol presence and warmth, but it is actually hidden quite well - the woodiness and hops balance things off well.

O - I have been trying to track this one down for quite a while, and luckily there is not an ounce of disappointment to be found here. Hard to remember 'em all, but this might be my favorite tripel to date. Standard issue Damnation is good, but this takes it to another level. Gonna have to seek out a couple more of these while they are still relatively available.

375ml bottle poured into a Bruery Tulip. Thanks for the bottle jodan.
Batch 69

A - Pours a light, hazy orange with a huge cream-colored head. Good retention and lacing left on the glass.

S - Green grapes, belgian yeast, spices.

T - Tart grapes, yeast, slight woodiness in the back.

D - Tons of carbonation and a lighter body.

O - Nice and funky, but light and refreshing.

On-tap at the brewery. Third brewing, meaning batch 69.

A: Served a cloudy golden apple juice color with a thin what film that quickly faded into a lasting collar.
S: Sweet golden fruits, white wine, peppery spices, and golden raisins.
T: Similar to regular Damnation but with more alcohol and fruit and a bit of a barrel quality reminiscent to white wine. There is a honey sweetness in the finish as well as a splash of apple juice. The beer is also very spicy overall, with notes of pepper, yeast, and coriander.
M: Thickish body, dry viscous mouthfeel and creamy carbonation. This was wonderful to drink, and I could not detect the double digit alcohol at all.
O: Really fruity and flavorful with a great mouthfeel. Can’t wait to see how it is out of the bottle.

5/18/11: Batch 23, thanks Mike.
This has held amazingly. Ultra smooth and integrated. No alcohol flavor. The fruit has really blossomed. Drink 'em if you got 'em!

On tap. Batch 23/69.

Pours an opaque golden leaning towards amber body. Some off-white head, but not much at all. Leaves some bubbles on the side of the glass.

Aromas of oak, Belgian yeast and citric sourness. A vague fruit sweetness as well.

Very woody with tons of oak flavors right away. Raspberry like sweetness. Sourness is very subtle, presenting itself more like a lemon zest. Lots of earthiness as well, with that classic taste of Belgian yeast. Slow alcohol burn on the finish.

Not as bold as their other sours, but a great take on an already pretty good beer. Very tasty. I'm interested to see how it ages.

Opened this bottle late (after 10pm) on 5/20 (my 41st birthday), only after my wife said: 'do you realize you haven't had a beer yet today?' And so I hadn't...

375ml bottle (Batch 069 - hello!), with a slightly lower 10.75% ABV shown on the label. Thanks to our friend, Bryce, who brought this gift back from his visit to Santa Rosa last December. Shared in two tulip glasses.

A: Thick pile of white foam (2+ fingers) sits atop a hazy golden/honey ambrosia. Carbonation is modest (a slight surprise) and the head fizzles away too quickly. Lace is spotty/fractured. Skim holds steadfastly and forms a clinging ring.

S: After 15-20 minutes of warming post-pour, there's a very starchy 'applesauce' aroma here. It's moderate spicy (dash of nutmeg? allspice?). Woody notes develop, mild vanilla.

T: Phenomenal flavor: big spice, a tangy and zesty pepper-sprinkled fruitiness. It's pears, apples and flowers, honey and wood, all rolling around in the mouth. Hints of green grape and even some green herbs. A subtle vinous/woody char barely reveals the oak barrel. A little chalkier and drier in the finish. After some warming, a little 'cedar' creeps in. Came close to a '5' for me.

M: Maybe Sliiightly too 'warm'... I suppose aging even longer could have helped, but there's not much you can do with 11-ish%, I suppose. Ample fizz upfront, although surprisingly mellow/smooth in the finish - velvety, actually.

O: 'Regular' Damnation is quite possibly my wife's favorite beer and is quite delicious in my book, too - so an oak-aged/stronger version of it? Hell, yes! This did not disappoint at all - so flavorful and mellow, with barrel-aging complementing wonderfully. At 12.7 oz split two ways, it disappeared far too quickly. Would love to have this again - it was a great night cap to an excellent birthday.

Pours a hazy golden orange color with a two finger frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Sporadic chunks of soapy lacig left behind.

Sweet, slightly earthy aroma wih lots of estery light fruit notes, toasted oak, vanilla and earthy hops. Hints of apple and lead along with some pine and champagne yeast.

Medium bodied with some soft carbonation up frot along with a champagne like efervesence that gives off hints of bready yeast and light fruit esters. Lots of sweet apple and pear along with slight booze and spice but this is nicely mellowed out by the oak presence. Not overly dry or toasted with hints of coconut and vanilla that nicely masks the high ABV. Some virgin oak beers taste like charred tooth picks but here it is nicely integrated into the flavor of the base beer. Complex, flavorful and dangerously drinkable.

Darker than normal Damnation gold with a rightly capped white head of billowing foam, that remains, but dies down and is revived with a swirl of the glass. Excellent lacing and head retention on this wild pup of a beer. Aromas of strong classic golden ale perfection, apple, a bit of spice from the yeast esthers, sweet biscuity malts, and slightly dead vegetal hops in the back. This version also has a big hot boozy oak note that dominates the front aroma quadrant. Taste si big with the oak and alcohol head, a bit hot at this point but will be oh, so, smooth in about 14 month time. Oak chips, mix with spicy yeast/hop notes with a metallic twinge of biscuit malt in the back palatte. Mouthfeel is smooth, but this is hot which hurts it's drinkability a bit. Still damn good. Was not rar at all when released but now impossible to find, which sucks. Should of picked up that case for $80 when it came out as this will be stellar in a few months....

750ml corked/caged bottle poured into a Chimay glass. This is Batch 046. According to the RR website, this was brewed on 12/2/08 and bottled on 1/7/09. I consumed it on 2/26/09. Comes in at 10.75%.

A-When poured, looks like semi-hazy apple juice. One finger white head dissolves quickly into a thin, puffy, layer. Lacing is left that looks like cresting waves about to break.

S-Belgian yeast hits when first opened. Musty wood (in this case oak), grapes, and some apple.

T-Candy sugar sweetness with a nice bitter hop feeling on the backend. Toasted oak is also apparent.

M-Creamy and well carbonated. Smooth on the tongue and a nice level of bitterness is left in the back of the mouth. Quite a crisp finish.

D-I am asking myself where is the alcohol? An extremely crisp and refreshing tripel.

I purchased a bottle of the original Batch 23 once when I was at the brewpub and did not take notes, but remember the beer being quite good and worth the extra cost. This new batch does not disappoint. The bottle says this can be aged for up to four years. I would love to sample this beer as it ages. I would also like to see MJ mentioned on the back of the bottle when mentioning all things 23.

Poured from a 12.68oz bottle into a chalice. (batch 69)

A: Pours a slightly cloudy golden yellow color. It has a two finger, creamy, pearl white head that leaves sheets of lacing and keeps a good sized film across the top. A tornado of carbonation swarms from the bottom of the glass and rises vigorously to the top.

S: It starts off with big spicy phenolic notes. A touch of belgian yeast follows. It finishes with sweet light fruits. There is a touch of alcohol in the aroma as well. I can't sense anything resembling this being aged in oak chips.

T: Here is where the oak chips make their presence. They give off a nice earthy and woody sort of taste that works well with the other flavors that follow. Belgian yeast and spicy phenols are again present. Belgian candy sugar makes a significant impact giving off an appealing light alcohol taste. A big sweet fruit taste finishes it off.

M: The belgian candy sugar gives it a lighter body. The high amount of carbonation effectively moves the flavors around the palate. It finishes with a mild amount of alcohol.

O: This was really a great beer. Definitely one of the best tripels I have enjoyed to date. It hides the high alcohol dangerously well, it has a great complex taste, and is well put together overall.
