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.

(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!

Pour @ Borefts Beer Festival 2015 thanks to some dude. Cant remember who to be honest haha. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aromas of dark fruits, light coffee, chocolate, roast, malt. Taste is caramel, fudge, light coffee, chocolate, roast, dark fruits. Not much "bomb" about the coffee in this but still pretty good.

750ml bottle. Thx Andrew! Hefty dark brown hue. Big chocolate taste. Sort of a dry, sugared black malt taste plus some coffe & toasty notes. Better as it warmed.

33cl bottle (2010 vintage), served in tulip @ Kulminator. Pours black with a gorgeous tan head. Both aroma and taste are chocolate, coffee, dried fruits and dark fruits. The dark malt character is not too heavy, seems rather sweet malts. That really helps to balance the beer. Moderate bourbon heat along with pleasant coffee bitterness on the palate. Full mouthfeel, very good carbonation. Magnificent brew.

Brewhemia (79) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2015
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.

Bottle at Kulminator. This is the stuff. Rich aroma of mocha coffee, bourbon vanilla and roasted malt. Taste is filthy rich, with lots of mocha coffee, bourbon vanilla, red fruit, cherry and a burning boozy finish. Really awesome.
