4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours in ultimately dark body with creamy beige head. Aroma is smoky, sweet of candy sugar and licorice, almost like wood ashes, loaded with coffee. Taste is bitter in front with sweet tail at the end, complex flavours are little bit masques by the bitterness, sadly. Body is full, creamy, well carbonation. Great beer.

Bottle, huge thnx for deanso for sharing! Pours a pitch black beer with a big tanned head on top. Little lacing on the glass. Aroma is full of coffee, mocha and oak. Some dark fruity notes in there as well. Very intense aroma. Flavour is very sweet, full sugary and has thick mouthfeel. Defintely sense some bourbon, boozy notes in there, however, the high abv is hardly noticeable. You do get some alcohol, but certainly not the 12%. Awesome brew, thanks Dean for sharing this one!!

Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Thank-you. Poured a deep mahogany with a frothy tan head. The aroma is rich spicy pepper with some roasted malt. The flavour is weak bitter with a dry malty palate with loads of coffee, roasted malt, liqourice and chocolate on the smooth creamy palate. Lekker!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle at Kulminator
Because they had most of them available I chose to do a mini-tasting of several Black Damnations. When they are all this excellent picking a favorite is hard. However this might be the second best one Iíve tried so far. If anyone wants to a flight of all 12 count me in.
Aroma / Appearance - The fluid icy black pour is thick like greasy water. A beige tan head is thick and creamy with slick legs. Mocha truffles, vanilla, and heavy chocolate hang in the air like a cloud of smog. This is most certainly a mocha bomb as advertised.
Flavor / Palate - Creamy mocha holds together a rich chewy mouthfeel. Figs, raisins, and malt complement a light sweetness. Dark fruity aspects underscore the heaviness present in the body. The fact that it was within the budget is an additional bonus. Pick one up if it is less then $15.00 or so.
