COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Black Damnation series is a dark twist of Urban’s mind. His idea is to realize a dozen beers with the use of Black Albert, and over a period of two years, that are as black as hell, filty rich in the nose and with massive taste. Black Damnation is a blend with the use of Hel & Verdoemenis from Brouwerij De Molen. This is the first of the series.

50% of Black Albert was used with another 50% of H &V.

Black coloured beer with just a sliver of a dark tan head. Aroma is glorious & full of coffee, brown sugar, dark fruity chocolate. Flavours of H&V are quite evident, charcoal and mineral notes, chocolate, cocoa powder. Good coffee chocolate finish with good balancing bitterness and hops & sugar in the after taste.

fonefan (36036) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2009
Draught @ pré-ZBF 09 @ Alvinne: Alvinne-Struise beerfest.
Clear dark black color with a average to large, frothy - creamy, good lacing, fully lasting, light brown head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, dark chocolate, fruity, smoke - peat. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium to full, texture is oily - sticky, carbonation is soft. Very delicious and well balanced ;o)) [20090306]

yespr (32033) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 7, 2009
From tap. Pours pitch black and with a small tan head. Dense malty and hardroasted maty with a solid dark chocolate aroma. Smooth chocolate malty and light smoked flavoured with a light bitterness from hops and roasted acidic malty. Subdued alcohol presence, surprisingly as there is 12% of it - but I guess the yeasty fruity flavours, dense malt and some sweetness really takes the alcohol burn out. Dense roasted maty flavoured. Light fruity touch into the far finish. Fantastic!

omhper (19972) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 21, 2009
Bottled at Belgobaren, Stockholm. Very black, small beige head. Sweet and roasty. Ashy and a bit fruity with notes of asphalt. Full bodied wit chocolate and brandy. Intense, but staying short of becoming inky. Everything fits together fine, but this concept of über-imperial Belgian stout does not really do it for me.

13% version. Opaque black stout, frothy chocolate coloured head. Smooth palate turning creamy and frothy. Light and airy. Incredibly rich, chocolate, sourish malt, red fruits, nutty and woody flavours. Even a dash of brandy in there. All comes together in this beautiful soft beer. Outstanding.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 2009-07-16, 7-5-7-3-15=37
It pours a black color, with a huge brown head, persistent, ending with a strange effect of île flottante. Dusty aroma of burnt malts, too much; carobs, perfume, Asian shop, glue; later, chocolate; it takes a while before developing correctly. Good body structure; it has a strong flavor of roasted malt and chocolate, light spices and liquorice; there is some light residual sugar to improve the mouthfeel in the front, but it’s not sweet, and it’s dusty too; the mouthfeel is quite smooth. Medium to strong ending bitterness, playing a lot with the roasted malts. Solid, but it doesn’t go in my direction.

Black color. Besides the aroma typical of a strong black beer, it has a light sour touch, light paper aroma, almost an impression of cherries; creamy mouthfeel, strong chocolate flavor. But overall it doesn’t impress me too much.
