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.

UPDATED: MAR 19, 2010 Wow this hits me like a bull. An intense hit of black coffee. Just a bomb of mocha! This is mesmerising. Poured at home from bottle into ESB glass. Lovely thick dark head. Jet black tar texture of the beer. Aroma is bloody awesome. As a coffee man this just has to be an ideal wake up call. Tastes of rich dark chocolate; coffee, roasted malts, old dried fruits and oak. This is stunning. I’m loving every sip. Carlo and Urbain are master craftsmen and this is a monet on my pallet. Awesome. Stunning. Bought from Alvinne beer shop at PRE-ZBF. Thanks for sharing the wealth! WOW. This is just insane.

Bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. The pour is potent like hell. Fluffy dark brown head that stays forever. The body is black black black. Good looking. The nose is most of all bitter roasted with hints of chocolate and not much but a little coffee. the taste is rich and actually a bit fruity with the hard rosted flavours a little behind at first but later totaly in front hand in hand with alcohol. Strange off flavour that I can’t define. Agressive and masculin beer. Nice smooth mouthfeel.

Do i have to say, that it pours somewhat black, with a good, big and foamy nut-brown head. (?) Aroma is heavy with mocha. mmhh. Will start to drink this in the morning instead of my cops of coffee... Vanilla and chocolate is also big in the aroma. more suttle is burned/dark caramel, brown sgugar and wood. Really nice dry finish of oak. Hmm... Light dirt?? Body is medium, with a nice carbonation to it.. Reallly good...

HMOG 2014. Boozy earthy scent. They weren’t kidding when they called this a mocha bomb. Chocolate is all over the flavor with a lively candy spice. Pours dark brown and a tan head.

Bottle sample. Murky brown color, small tan head. Mineraly aroma, with ash, manure, roast and chicory. Flavors of coffee, dark chocolate, acid and low bitterness. Full bodied with a long finish. Interesting.

Bontus (614) - Flanders, BELGIUM - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle @ Molenhof, next to the Struise brewery. Pours clean perfect black, with a bubbly beige/brown head. Small head. Incredible mocha & coffee aroma, burnt / roasted aroma, but subtle. Palate is slicky, not sticky. Taste balanced roast/bitter, some residual sweetness. Overall top class brew.

mmahut (613) - CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 24, 2013
Pours in ultimately dark body with creamy beige head. Aroma is smoky, sweet of candy sugar and licorice, almost like wood ashes, loaded with coffee. Taste is bitter in front with sweet tail at the end, complex flavours are little bit masques by the bitterness, sadly. Body is full, creamy, well carbonation. Great beer.

A coffee bean flavour dominates this beer, with traces of whisky and chocolate. Got a little too one-dimensional to be a great impy. Not a trace of those 12 % though.
