UPDATED: MAY 17, 2015 Flaska på Belgobaren. Söt doft med kaffetoner. Lagom fyllig munkänsla, kaffe och sötma även i smaken. Mycket god!

"Coffee breaks, cab rides, green rooms. Real growth often happens outside of where we intend it to, in the interstitial spaces – what Dr. Seuss calls “the waiting place.” Hans Ulrich Obrist once organized a science and art conference with all of the infrastructure of a conference – the parties, chats, lunches, airport arrivals — but with no actual conference. Apparently it was hugely successful and spawned many ongoing collaborations."

February 13, 2015. Bottle at home, vintage 2012. Received in a trade with Douberd, thanks Christos!
Black with a creamy dense brown head. Aroma is roasted, chocolate, and acidic cherry like notes. Taste is medium sweet dark sugars and berries, acidic fruity notes. Dry finish with some sweetness and acidic fruity notes. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Lacks coffee notes but the acidity (infection) works quite well, more like an cherry infused imperial stout.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at a bar in Germantown of Louisville some time after we left Sergio’s on December 26. I’m going to start this review by saying I’m pretty sure this was the bottom of the keg, and I really don’t think this is typical of this beer. The pour is a dark brown, lots of sediment. It’s almost like a glass of pure mud. There is no head and no lace. The aroma comes off a little fruity. There is a light sour bit to it, and it’s just not really good. The roast is drowned out as well and I’m not getting any mocha. The flavor is very similar. There is a little whiskey on the back end, but that’s about the whole difference. The mouth feel is a little light and it’s very flat. Just a couple of bubbles of carbonation that let the mud slide right off the tongue. The aftertaste is really fruity and sweet. I hope I might get to taste this again, this time without all of the sediment and as the beer was intended.

Sweeter than the other Black Damnation's. Sharp carbonation, also present on the tail end of my palate. Booze, mocha, dark chocolate, sweet toffee.

Small bottle from circa 2012. Pours inky black, small brown head, dissipates to a ring that laces well. Aroma is rich mocha and green peppers. Flavor follows, medium sweet and medium bitter, lots of coffee, a bit stale but that is likely my fault for sitting on this one. Green pepper notes present, as well as chocolate and dark roasted malts, plus some molasses. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Solid, but I bet it was better in its prime.

Bottle sampled was a gusher. Pours pitch black with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Flavor was thick roasted coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla bean and had some notes of dark fruit. Oily texture, full body, dry finish.
