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, filthy rich in the nose and with a massive taste.

Black Damnation II is yet another blend with the use of Hel & Verdoemenis from Brouwerij De Molen. This time a level more complex than BD I. 50% of Black Albert was used that matured for a while on whole coffee beans out of a craft Columbian coffee plantation. 25% of H&V was used that aged for 6 months on JD barrels at Struise. Another 25% of Cuvée Delphine was used.

Beware: labels are the same, taste however isn’t. Some bottles are recognizable because of he handwritten 2 on them.

Svesse (6967) - Hässelby, - SEP 2, 2012
(Bottle, Kulminator, Antwerpen, 19 July 2012) Black colour with frothy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with lots of coffee, notes of chocolate, cacao and dark bread. Malty, roasted taste with coffee, cacao, dark chocolate and a finish with soft, creamy coffee and a generous cacao bitterness. Full body, soft and rounded mouthfeel. Balanced sweetness. Alcohol is overshadowed by coffee and cocoa, but shines through in a warming finish. Absolutely lovely!

Black with brown head. Intense alcoholic aroma of cognac and cherry wine. The taste follows the intensesity and really do taste a lot like cherry wine and I do like cherry wine. But unfortunately it becomes a bit too much of a one sided taste for me in the long run.

Bottle 2 pours out black topped with a small head. Nose is very sweet chocolate bomb like the name roast malts coffee vanilla and a nice booze kick. Taste is more of the sweetness roast malts chocolate coffee vanilla bourbon barrel and brown sugar.

# 3569 ersma: man nehme: 25 % struise cuvée delphine, 50 % struiese black albert auf kaffeebohnen gelagert und 25 % de molen hel & verdoemenis, sechs monate in jack daniels-fässern gelagert… pechschwarz mit einer ahnung von dunkelbraun-rötlichem schaum. ölig im glas. der nase schlagen intensive aromen von kaltem kaffe entgegen. dahinter schoko und röstmalz. der antrunk ist intensiv röstmalzig mit viel kaffe, schoko, einer tonne karamell und etwas vanille und hefe. zur mitte gesellen sich noch trockenpflaumen und whiskynoten hinzu. der abgang bleibt ein intensives geschmackserlebnis, viel karamell, viel kaffee, etwas schoko und trockenfrüchte. die 12 volt verstecken sich sehr gut. die flasche ist überzeugend gestaltet. fazit: den geruch von kaltem kaffee mag ich nicht so, aber darüber kann man hinwegsehen, sobeld man die aromen auf der zunge hat. das ist ganz großes kino. intensive aromen bis zum abwinken. referenzklasse. 12,14,13,13,12,13 - 13,00

jamaty (1332) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 8, 2015
Negra densa, como el petroleo, espesa. Mezcla de tres stouts brutales, la cuvee delphine, una black albert madurada en recipientes de cafe colombiano y otra en barricas de bourbon. Dos dedos de espuma ocre que desaparece pronto pero nunca del todo, dejando aspecto de buen cafe. Aroma complejo, claramente de café, y mucho más. Chocolate negro. Textura muy cremosa. Por lo demas todo un licor de café. Y no solo eso, coco, chocolate, madera... Muy compleja y especial. Imprescindible... Para ciertos momentos.
