Russian River Damnation Batch 23

Russian River Damnation Batch 23 This is an ale aged with oak chips. This is the third offering of the 23 from RR, thus Batch 69. Have had this in bottle and on tap. Bottles are not ready yet, still showing too much aggressive carbon dioxide. The tap might be my favorite 23 ever. Really nice, rich, toasty vanilla oak on top of citrusy lemon zest, herbs and brown spice. Thicker than the regular Damnation. I loved the tap, the bottle was a bit edgy almost like it was still fermenting a bit. I would let them sit a year if you can. 4.2/5
