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.

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

Black with a brown head with two different size bubbles. Woody booze smells with a coffee accent on the end. Creamy spikes of leather and raw chocolate earthy. Fades more then you would think..

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.

Smells like chocolate and coffee resin at the bottom of an ashtray...in a good smokey way! Pours a viscous dirty motor oil blackness with a slight tan head. Smokey roasted coffee bitterness followed by intense chocolate with woody, hoppy notes. Very complex and tasty!

I originally had this at Stone 14th Anniversary in August and loved it so much I ordered some. Love the coffee aroma and hint of chocolate flavor. I don’t remember the bitterness at the end when I had it at Stone anniversary but its still great.

Defreni (2603) - Husum, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2010
Flaske: Kulsort øl med et kæmpestort tæt flot mokkabrunt skumhoved. Fantastisk duft af sød kaffe. Højlandskafe uden bitterhed. Smagen er igen overvældende sødlig kaffe med en snert vanilie. Næsten ingen brændthed eller bitterhed. Alkoholen kan kun mærkes ved dens virkning og en smule balance til sødmen. Fanbibtastisk øl. Potentiel 5. Super og koloenorm.

Prokroustis (685) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JUN 30, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2012 Black. Light brown head. Best coffee aroma yet, that dominates over all the other notes, some noticeable smoke as well. Incredibly balanced taste, coffee, chocolate, wood, roasted malts, burned toast, the name is an understatement. Excellent. (10/5/9/4/19) Pitch black body, brown head. Amazing intense coffee aroma, with ash, smoke, dark chocolate. Incredible taste with chocolate, dark chocolate, wood, mocha, lots of coffee, alcohol, caramel, vanilla, burned toast. Simply amazing.

This here is quite possibly my favourite beer of all time. One of my signature beers, I first tasted this as a gift from a work colleague for giving him the job of a lifetime at The BottleShop Canterbury. This beer blew. my. mind. A gorgeous, thick, chewy stout featuring luxurious coffee notes on the nose and a deliciously rich dark bitter coffee taste. Pours, nay, GLIDES out of the bottle with velvety smooth and rich treacle appearance to finish with a perfect, well formed gingery head of smooth tight bubbles. Best served cold for luxury heart warming pleasure. In my opinion, if you’ve had a great dinner, skip dessert and grab one of these bad boys out of the fridge to get your dessert and after dinner coffee fix all in one! Perfection!

One step under its sister Coffee Club, it’s an extraordinary beer which has everything: an overwhelming body, almost chewable, elegant and powerful. Perfectly structured, finished up with a memorable finish. Unforgettable.

This is something. Very dark with a very thin foam. Whisky, coffee beans, coffee liquor, cocoa beans, roasted wood. Bitter and sweet. Dry. Very complex and balanced. Rather easily drinkable for such an alcoholic beer. The after taste is so long. This baby will evolve really well. Another great beer from struise!
