Damnation Ale (Russian River Brewing Company)

  • A really thumping hefty brown glass bottle. I guess they're worried about standing up to the carbonation pressure of in-bottle fermentation.
  • Straw color with bottle-fermented haze
  • Fluffy, nearly white head that stands indefinitely
  • Beautiful fruity aroma: pear, raisin, the inside of a candy shop
  • Grapey first impression. Quite sweet.
  • Subdued carbonation
  • Spicy notes developing toward the end
  • Riesling sourness
