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.

Leighton (11348) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2012
Bottle at Bruce’s Housewarming Party Tasting, London. Just a phenomenal beer. The chocolate character is so robust and true that you probably won’t know what to do with yourself. Huge but actually not too hot. Not cloying. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Big, lasting mocha finish with some moderate roast notes. Superb.

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.

Pinball (10870) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2011
Bottle from ølbutikken. pitch dark, huge very smooth brown head. Aroma of cofee, bitter hops, roasted malts, caramel. the hard roasted malts and the coffee works very well together. Flavor is cofee, hard roasted malts, load of wood, sweet syruppy flavor, dryness, damn this flavor is outstandingly good, extremely complex, while the base flavor is a super solid imp stout with coffee ,wood and whiskey notes, balanced by a complex note of dark dried fruits and other quad like flavors. The imp stout part is most of the flavor, but the quad like part adds loads of complexity and makes the beer very interesting and unique. Aftertaste is hot, sweet, woody, roasted, coffe, very long lasting.

Koelschtrinker (10836) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 11, 2012
Erdig-malziger, deutlich torfiger Beginn. Die Intensität nimmt rasch zu, neben dem komplexen Malz auch die Süße, die kurz zu stark erscheint. Dann ist das Malz aber wieder unangefochtem im Vordergrund, Röstnoten, Vanille, leicht trocken. Geringe Herbe, das Bier ist trotz der Intensität weich. Komplex malziger Abgang mit angenehmen Vanillenoten, langer röstiger Abgang. Spitzenklasse! 13/15/13/14/13/14

Tmoney99 (10820) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear dark brown color with a large frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted coffee, dark chocolate, caramel and alcohol aroma. Heavy sweet roasted dark malty flavor with a heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.
