Bottle at home. Very nice, rich coffee flavor - seemingly bitter end game, with the signature Struise yeast flavor. Awesome.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very thick black with a huge 3 finger head. The aroma had wood, chocolate, tar, and like it says on the bottle tobacco-in fact it has a lot of tobacco. The taste had chocolate, coffee, wood, alcohol, and was very thick and creamy-a big brew, very big. A comparable beer -GD Oak Yeti. Cheers to Struise for making these more available as I can’t wait to try all Black Damnations.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Capone’s. Thick black with thin, than, oily head. Aromas of coffee, chocolate, and roast, though not as much as Black Damnation (I). Mildly sweet and moderately bitter. A bit booze. Had this in a bottle a little more than a year ago, and it’s just as good as I remember it.

Fľaša. Tmavá, až olejová hnedá farba, stredne hnedá pena. Vôňa úžasne kávová, čokoládová. V chuti pražené slady, káva, jemne vanilka, prezreté slivky. Nádherné pivo, úžasne jemné a pitné. Chuť, ako keby to ležalo v sudoch po bourbon.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour muddy pitch black, very little brown head.
Aroma is heavy of coffee. Alot of vanilla and rum in here as well. A little amount of dark fruit is comming through. Really complex, with a lot going on.
Taste is really sweet, with lots and lots of roastyness going on.
A little warming in the throat by the alcohol, else it’s very well hidden.
Thick and oily body, with a flat carb.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours thick black with firm brown head that fades to a thin but persistent layer. Aroma roast, licorice, slight chocolate. Taste dark roast, licorice, some dark fruits, slight rum, molasses and slight coffee. I didn’t get as much coffee as some others. There is a rum sweetness that comes and goes. Finish initial sweetness with a prolonged slightly bitter roast/ash taste. Palate awesome, thick with no stickiness, not syrupy. Alcohol fairly well disguised.
Better as it warms, next time will let it warm up more before drinking.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black colored beer with a very small brown head. Hardly any carbonation which gives the beer a certain smoothness. Nose of burned malts, pure chocolate and notes of coffee and alcohol. Strong chocolate flavor. Alcohol warming and rum flavors.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Pours a gorgeous thick black with a long lasting dark brown head. Nose is very cool, heavy on fruity rum notes with lots of roasty coffee and dark chocolate. Flavor is closer to Black Albert with less roasty imperial stout notes and an overall smoother body. Coffee roast flavor is big in the flavor with hints of chocolate vanilla and a very nice fruity note that is probably partly from the rum barrel and from the fruitier Black Albert. Quite different from Black Damnation as it doesn’t quite have the huge palate. A very very good belgian imperial stout.

Bottle shared by plovmand, thanks! :)
Pours pitch black with a light brown head and beautiful lacings.
Aroma is dominated by fresh non-roasted coffee beans mixed with roasted coffee, dirt and somewhat rum like notes.
Flavour has a lot of the same notes, but it way more smooth than expected, the coffee notes appears even stronger along with tobacco, caramel and vanilla.
