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.

chicagodri (1683) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Picked up two bottles of these while in Belgium. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, slight ash. Good strong coffee flavor. Nice beer.

MrChopin (3726) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2011
dark brown. Lots of coffee, bit ashy, light prune but fruit muted. Heavy coffee, light herbal hop balanced, pleasant yeast aspect, lingering bitterness and ash but not much coffee, some faint chalky milk chocolate.

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 6, 2011
Black coloured beer, huge off-white to brown head. LIght malty coffee bean roasted aroma. Full sharper palate. FInish is roasted bitter, sweet fruity and roasted sweet coffee touched. Nice one.

Cuso (5977) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 6, 2011
Bottled from Bierkompass. Black color with nice coffee head. Nice carbonation. Aroma is strong in coffee, chocolate and smoke. Taste, definitely strong coffee, roasted malt, wood. Dry finish. Nice complex beer.

DalzAle (2010) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle. Dark black pour, minimal carbonation and an extremely strong aroma of green peppers. Flavor is some vanilla, coffee, peat and more pepper with a slightly cinnamony aftertaste. Ok, but not worth dropping more than $5-6 on(if that.)

portableparty (2063) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle shared by DalzAle. Pour is black brown with a soapy tan head that fades to a film. Aroma is funky green pepper and sweet malt scents. Taste is more sweet burnt malt and some more green peppers. Palate is medium to full feel with a strong fizzy chaulky dry finish. I think this one should be renamed to vegtable bomb.

BeerBaboon (1765) - FINLAND - MAR 5, 2011
Struise se osaa. Black Damnation II -Mocha Bomb on mustaa ja öljyisen näköistä tavaraa. Olut omaa ruskean vaahdon. Tuokussa on jalapenoa, kahvia ja maanläheistä multaisuutta. Maultaan mokkapommi on kahvinen, multainen, makea ja kuivan katkerahko. Suutuntuma on runsas, mutta voisi olla jopa runsaampikin. Mielenkiintoinen bourbonmainen chilisuklaaolut. Hieman chipotle Tabasco tulee tästä kyllä mieleen. Aika kovaa herkkua.

cnardi (24) - ITALY - FEB 28, 2011
Piacevoli sentori di caffè in "polvere", legno e una leggera acidità. Nerissima con una densa schiuma color caffèlatte. Al gusto ritorna preponderante il caffè. E’ "densa" quasi "grassa". Finisce molto lunga e alcolica. Davvero buona.

Bottles from Struise Shop. Blacker than a goths wardrobe.with a pleasingly lasting muddyish tan head. Lookin’ good. Oh wow, just about the best smelling roasted coffee aroma you could hope for. Sniff after bloody sniff, just awesome. A clear 10. Some bourbon and vanilla notes lurked in the shadows also. Mouthfeel was bob on, fullish, smooth and velvety with gentle carbonation. The nose gave a fair indication of what was to follow, and once again there was a load of roasted coffee, plus chocolate and barrel notes. Plenty of complexity in there. Drinkability is just through the roof considering the ABV. All of the Black damnation series have been exemplary, but I think this could just be my favourite. This beer truly is da bomb.
