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.

Bottle 33cl from the brewery. A deep dark beer with very low head that goes quickly. Smell is low just a slightly coffee note. Aroma is very sweet, creamy, intense in dark chocolate and dark coffee, the coffee bouquet is specially nice a the finish with multiple variations. Not too astringent, this beer is drinkable even with 12° and heavy roasted character, a great brew. Not too far from Mikkeller’s Beer Geek Brunch Weasel, good caramel notes too, just a bit too sweet.

(33cl bottle thanks to bu11zeye) espresso brown with a dark tan head. Nose of espresso, fudge, vanilla. Taste of huge espresso, smoke, big mocha. It’s bitter it has so much coffee flavor. Dry bitter finish.

Rating No.3600
trade with kappldav123 (thanks David!) Pitch black coloured, big beige head, coffee-chocolate nose hint of licorice. Roasted malt, heavy roasted coffee and dark chocolate with notes of hops and vanilla. Alcohol well hidden, just mild hints from time to time. Bitter coffee finish and long-lasting aftertaste. Superb imperial stout.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 28, 2010
BBD 2010. Pours a deep rich oily black with a nice lasting deep beige-tan head. Aroma is big coffee, espresso, and has that typical spicy green bell peppers mixed with some spicier peppers, cocoa powder, dark chocolate, earth, and tobacco/cigar. Flavor is earthy, burnt toast, light plastic, phenols, big coffee and spice, peppers, big roasted barley and medium chocolate and cocoa nibs- leather and more cigar wrapper sweetness and earth- then oak, woody burnt wood, light sweet caramelized bourbon- with some medium caramel sweetness as well- Finish is pretty smooth.

Bottle thanks to 50belair. Tasted with some friends along side Cuvee Delphine, Black Damnation 1-4, and regular Black Albert. Black pour, frothy tan head. Nice roasted coffee beens, chocolate, caramel, hint of dark fruit, vanilla, and oak. Very good, II and III where my favorite.

Bottle at home. Pours an opaque black with a beige head and lacings. Smells of chocolate cake. Sweet with aromas of mellow coffee, chocolate cake and toasted malts. Also hints of prunes. Tiny hints of alcohol. Full bodied. Medium to high carbonation. Dry finish with more coffee.

Cheers MesandSim. Looks great. Black with dark orange brown head. Like the colour of an old Austin Allegro. Aroma is a huge punch in the chops of coffee, some dark fruits and chocolate, a little herby. Also smells of my freshly washed sheets. Which is very comforting. Flavour is more amazing coffee and chocolate with a finish that goes on forever. Struise guys do barrel aging brilliantly. Easy to drink yet every mouthful a tummy banana inspiring fat pile of horn. Makes me want to swear like a sailor on leave.

Bottle shared with Steptin. Deep brown pour with a tan head. Light aroma of dark chocolate/dark roast coffee. Lots of good dark chocolate, the flavor goes on and on. Rich and full, though still singular in flavor.
