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.

12 ounce bottle at Kulminator
Because they had most of them available I chose to do a mini-tasting of several Black Damnations. When they are all this excellent picking a favorite is hard. However this might be the second best one I’ve tried so far. If anyone wants to a flight of all 12 count me in.

Aroma / Appearance - The fluid icy black pour is thick like greasy water. A beige tan head is thick and creamy with slick legs. Mocha truffles, vanilla, and heavy chocolate hang in the air like a cloud of smog. This is most certainly a mocha bomb as advertised.

Flavor / Palate - Creamy mocha holds together a rich chewy mouthfeel. Figs, raisins, and malt complement a light sweetness. Dark fruity aspects underscore the heaviness present in the body. The fact that it was within the budget is an additional bonus. Pick one up if it is less then $15.00 or so.

Heerlijke donkel old dark ale. Overweldigende smaken van koffie, mokka en whiskey-aromas. Zeer kruidig. Vol in de mond. Topper, echt volgens struise traditie

Pours a thick dark black with a mocha head that sticks around for a bit. Smells of wood, slight bourbon, chocolate, and a bit of coffee. Taste is fantastic... Super complex bourbon, oak, coffee... Really impressive. Coats the pallette but dry. Awesome.
