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.

Koelschtrinker (11854) - 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 (11545) - 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.

Christian (11477) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2011
Black with a dense and lasting light brown head. Aroma has lots of cold coffee, some fruit, licorice and roasted notes. Sweet and slightly sugary dark flavour with intense coffee. Pretty good coffee character

Theydon_Bois (11406) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2012
Bottle at home - 08/07/12, thanks to an IP trade with Dennoman. Black as squid ink and a good finger and a half of dirty brown head. Espresso coffee attacks you on the nose backed up with a little cocoa and a whiff of booze. Huge roasty flavour, dark malts, you know about the coffee but it is well blended into the main body. Full bodied but very drinkable, the 12% alcohol is well disguised. This is right up there for me - an excellent coffeed up RIS!!!

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.
