The Black Damnation series is a dark twist of Urbans 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 Cuve Delphine was used.

Beware: labels are the same, taste however isnt. Some bottles are recognizable because of he handwritten 2 on them.

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 caf, y mucho ms. Chocolate negro. Textura muy cremosa. Por lo demas todo un licor de caf. Y no solo eso, coco, chocolate, madera... Muy compleja y especial. Imprescindible... Para ciertos momentos.

Bov (10926) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - MAY 29, 2015
from la Mise en Bire - hazy black beer with no foam left; roasted aroma with notes of mocha, chestnuts and molasses; full-bodied and with a solid sweetness, quite sticky, fairly bitter and a long roasted coffeish and spicy finish; long notes of molasses, black chocolate and black cherries, some residual sweetness, warming alcohol and woody notes . impressive

Black color with a creamy tan head with good duration. Aroma has notes of ripe dark fruits, toasted malts, light coffee and some barrel notes. Flavor is slightly sweet, strong coffee with black chocolate, ripe fruits, mainly plumbs and raisins. Creamy, light sweet and coffee final with a mild duration.

"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."

hackobock (2432) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 13, 2015
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.

On tap at a bar in Germantown of Louisville some time after we left Sergios on December 26. Im going to start this review by saying Im pretty sure this was the bottom of the keg, and I really dont think this is typical of this beer. The pour is a dark brown, lots of sediment. Its 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 its just not really good. The roast is drowned out as well and Im not getting any mocha. The flavor is very similar. There is a little whiskey on the back end, but thats about the whole difference. The mouth feel is a little light and its 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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy App

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.
