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.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - MAR 17, 2011
Bottle. An opaque and pitch black beer, with a large, frothy, fully lasting brown head. The aroma is moderately to heavily malty. There are notes of coffee (a lot of it), chocolate, roasted (almost burnt) grain, alcohol, with some whiskey. The flavour is heavily sweet, lightly sour, lightly to moderately bitter. Almost full body, velvety/creamy texture, soft/lively carbonation, very long finish with medium bitterness, moderately alcoholic. It looks great, and the whiskey is finally not overwhelming, but balanced and integrated. It gets better as it warms. Second only to coffee club in the Black Damnation series.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2011 bottle@home: pitch-black with a dark mocha head that leaves nice lacing behind, smells of fresh coffee beans, roasted malt & espresso, tastes of roasted & fresh coffee beans, espresso, bourbon, minor vanilla, malt, pure coffee beans which come through heavily in the end giving it a very bitter coffee kind of taste, which unbalances the whole a bit which is sort of the only, very minor downside to this beer, otherwise absolutely mind-blowing, more coffee than coffee overall & much better than coffee could ever be, the body is very nicely thick which suits it perfectly, tinniest hint of alcohol at the end, virtually absent, ridiculously delicious, wish I always had a bottle of this

MrChopin (3810) - 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.

Cuso (6600) - 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 (2012) - 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 (2246) - 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.

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.
