Damnation and Conspiracies

Flavius: There is a conspiracy concerning the election in Iran
Meterman: WTF has your head been this week.
F: Hidden powers in Iran are thwarting the democratic process for their own financial gain.
M: Right! They plan to maintain control of Iran's oil reserves.
F: Nope, the clothing mafia wants to sell more of the cool jacket that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad always wears.

Damnation (Russian River)
Belgian Strong Ale

Ratebeer 3.75 96th percentile
Beer Advocate A-

Taste +4

Honestly, I do drink beers than strong Belgians. Big nose on this one; bready, grains, yeast and dried apricots. This is the way Unibroue is supposed to taste; very smooth with hints of fresh bread, yeast (not too much), apricots, spice (nutmeg and cloves). The body has a medium feel and a dry finish.

Aftertaste +2

This brew coats your mouth with a long lingering sensation of spicy bread.

Alcohol Content +1 7.75%

Oddly you can't taste it too much.

Value +1

This was a nice strong, pale Belgian. Much better that the Unibroues IMHO.
Ingame Enhancement +1

This was another Seattle beer. I think Gord and I sat in the hotel room and played 'Lets drink good beer'.

Overall 9/10

I thought this was a good pale (blond) Belgian strong ale. Much prefered over the Unibroue.
