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 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.

Mora2000 (5930) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is heavy on the coffee, along with some roasted malt and some cayenne pepper. The flavor is definitely strong on the coffee. I also get some roasted malt and chocolate, but the coffee is the star of the show. There are also some oak notes in the flavor from the oak aging. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A very nice beer that I am glad I got to try.

Holy (835) - GERMANY - DEC 12, 2010
Bottle. Motor oil, tan head, roast in the nose. Taste is sharp, the liquor cuts through in the beginning, mellowing out into a rich coffee roast aftertaste. Nice variation on the Black Albert.

mjs (5211) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 6, 2010
(Bottle at Pikkulintu) The beer poured pitch black. Its head was medium sized and brown. Aroma had burnt coffee and burnt malts. Palate was full bodied, warming and dry with quite high carbonation. Flavours were coffee, ash, burntness, hops and btiterness. Aftertaste had mild sourness and lot of coffee. I do like coffee and sometimes I do like coffee flavoured beers but the coffee in this beer tasted like it had been forgotten in kettle for long time.

esox (1180) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 4, 2010
Pitch black beer, rocky beige head. Big beer, insanely coffeyish nose. Sour coffee beans, tar, salty soy sauce. Dark chocolate and balancing bitterness in the finish. Syrupy, thick palate. Hides alcohol totally. Surprisingly drinkable.

Plovmand (6946) - Helsinge, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2010
Bottle. Pitch black pour with a big fluffy tan head. The aroma is coffee dominated with notes of hard roasted malt, dried dark fruit, light chocolate and bourbon. The flavour is light spicy with lots of roasted coffee notes. Hard roasted malt, light chocolate, toasted caramel, oak, vanilla and some vinous thing. Long coffeish finish. Lovely and complex.
