After providing 6 Black Damnations with a very high ABV, we thought time has come to launch a more drinkable dwarf...

Draft at Churchkey. I’ll preface this review by mentioning that I’m giving this beer a bit of a handicap due to the style, but not much of one because this was pretty enjoyable. Aroma was light roasted malts, touch of nut and some coffee. Highly drinkable.

Draft at Churchkey. Dark dark brown pour, gigantic foamy tan head. Nose and flavor bring roasted malt, light plum character, milk chocolate. Hints of coffee and almond as well. Light palate as expected. Cool to try!

swoopjones (6701) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 13, 2013
Draft at avenue pub. Light bodied black pour. Light roastiness in flavor and aroma. Not much going on flavor wise. Cool to try and impressed that it’s 2% but 4oz was enough

Theydon_Bois (11647) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2012
Tap at Het Oude Schooltje, Oostvleteren - 20/10/12. ABV on the tap label listed as 1.8%. Pitch black with a mahoosive coffee head that retains well - looks the picture. Light roast malt nose with a touch of chocolate and some mineral tones. Taste follows nosee with cocoa, a little coffee, light caramel notes and hops. Light to medium in body, not at all thin, well crafted and a great body for 1.8%!

DuffMan (7561) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 17, 2012
On tap @ Stone brewery. Looks really dark in the glass, like any RIS would, to be honest. The aroma doesn’t give away the low alcohol either. Beautiful flavours of figgy fruit, light tobacco, light roast, so flavourful for the ABV. Sure it’s thin and watery, but the complexity for this little brew is truly astonishing! If I were the designated driver for the night, I would not feel deprived drinking this. Beauty.

JohnnyJ (4788) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Draft at Stone. Clear brown pour. Chocolate, a bit of roast coffee, and watery. Light stoutish. Decent, what more do you want from a 2% beer.

alobar (2999) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Pours a dark cola brown with a tan head. Aroma of cocoa, roasted malt, and toffee. Cocoa flavor with roasted malt, toffee, and caramel. Overall, watery which detracts from substance.

tasted at the struise shop on draft, definetley the coolest one yet i drank there ! i drank this after tasting the black damnation 2 - 4 ( a few weeks or days after ) so.. this tastes watery. you know, for a black damnation. but knowing that this is 2 percent makes me have even more respect for them than i already had. yeah its wattery, but in a way you would say a 6-8 beer would be compared to the 13 percenters the damnations are. it aslo has the taste of a 6 - 8 percenter. what should you imagine ? a black albert with some watter added, and the right amount of CO2. btw, for a 2 percenter, this is still pretty black ! you would definetley think its more than 2 ! would i drink it again, having the other damnations? definetley ! its a nice ’break’ between the high alcohols, tastes way better than any lager on the market ( tastes even heavier to ! ) cant wait for this to be bottled !
