4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ Beer Planet, Brussels. Pours black with a large foamy beige head and lacings. Nose is bitter roasted coffee/mocha. Flavor is smooth and dry with some burnt roasted coffee and mocha notes and a light note of vanilla. Very delicious and complex , yet so easy drinkable. Slick. A bit of warmth but alcohol very well hidden. World class!

ChrisO ’Night Of The Gaylords’ tasting. Opaque black beer. Rich beer. Minerally malt. The coffee is light but more weighty than Black Damnation. Decent beer but not as good as BD 1.

Bottle. A big, creamy, beige head rests patiently on top of a pitch black body. Lots of coffee on the nose, but also a good dash of something reminiscent of chili, guess it’s the coffee playing my mind some tricks. The flavor is filled with mocha, mocha and more mocha, and also the same chili-like thing found in the aroma. Dry, dusty and full-bodied on the palate, warming too. Long finish. A mocha bomb indeed, dangerously wonderful, still a bit intense and unusual to be a true classic. 110621

Bottles and I do mean bottles, at the "how to blend beers" afternoon at The School brewery of Struise. Now I like coffee. And I like espresso coffee. But this was something else. The coffee hits you all ends up. Smooth yet roasty in the mouth. Good dark bitter chocolate flavours, but it is the coffee without doubt that hits you the most. Better than the first Black Damnation to be honest. This is very distinct. That dry beaned flavour runs through it. A memory of one of the best tastings/weekends I’ve had. Sat with Urbain and Mes and Ken and J, mixing and sampling beers. Perfect.

Opaque black color, small steady tan head. Nose is really unique: coffee, coffee beans, dark malts and tobacco ash mixed in the intensive way. Flavor is similar: ash, burnt malts, some sweetier licoricey notes. Warming alcohol in the finish. There is too much roasted and ashy notes in this one to be pleasant.

Bottle. [thank you, skortila]
Pours completely black with a firm, staying, creamy, beige head. Lovely lacings. Heavy cold coffee aroma, plums sweetness, light vinious, chocolate, coffee liquor. Heavy roasted base. Some slight oak and spicy dryness. Low carbonation, but still fairly lively. Wonderful oily and creamy. Flavour is elegantly complex. Lots of coffee, elegantly vinious, roasted malts abound. Elegant oaky tartness helps to balance the powerful flavours. Vanilla, ginger, chocolate, hops, plums. Lovely sweetness runs through all the notes. Fantastic.
