Russian River Damnation

American craft beer is always best when shared with other enthusiasts. Discussing each beer and nuances is about probably the best part of this hobby for me. Tuesday Night Beer Club (TNBC) probably had the biggest turn out of beer last night in the neighborhood of 25 beers sat on the counter for choice chance of being chosen one of the few.

Out of the rubble of the six beers that I had a chance to appreciate, I chose Damnation by Russian River as my beer of the day. I would say that I actually liked 2 Turtle Doves by The Bruery a bit more but I only had one bottle of Damnation, so it wins because I don’t have the chance to go in the cellar and have it again.

Damnation easily becomes one of my favorite Russian River beers. The complex subtleties all play well together and none really steals the show but shares the time on the palate, letting each come through nicely. I have to figure out a way to get and spend a day at Russian River. Anyone want to sponsor my trip? Enjoy!

Aroma: 8, Taste: 10, Look: 10, Drinkability: 9, Overall: 9.2

Useless Fact: The Amazon River discharges 4.2 million cubic feet of water per second in the Atlantic Ocean.
