angel77 (1288) - oviedo, SPAIN - APR 24, 2015
Botella de 75 en el kraken el 24-04-2015 en el momento. lote BDS0082012 hasta 30-09-2018. (R92) color negro intenso con poca espuma beige oscuro. Aromas sutiles maltosos dulces con caramelos tostados y especias acabando con herbáceos lupulados suaves, cada vez mas notables según va calentando. Cuerpo medio a intenso con 12 vol, algo espumoso (aumentando al calentar) pero bastante ligero y fino en paso por boca y fácil de beber. Sabores suaves y sutiles también de maltas tostadas algo dulces y especiadas al inicio pasando poco a poco a mas herbáceas y lupuladas con un final amargo suave, duradero y perfectamente combinado con todo lo anterior. Grandisima cerveza, compleja y perfectamente equilibrada en sabores destacando un amargo tostado final sutil y duradero. Una grande.

MarcoDL (2683) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle. Thick black pour. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malt and cacao. Taste of dark cacao, vanilla, fruity hops, roasted coffee and a medicinal touch. Sometimes hoppy and fruity bitters, sometimes bourbonny vanilla stout. Diverse and strange brew, but very good.

Swaroga (1664) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 17, 2014
The beer is huge. But it’s normal for Black Damnation. SHIT is sensibly more hoppy but it isn’t Black IPA .... For me it’s a huge RIS, a very good one too.

wedgie9 (2504) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Tasted on 2/8/14 from a 750mL bottle at the RBWG Grand Tasting, big thanks to jtclockwork for sharing. Pours oily pure black with a thin tan head that leaves a thin ring of lace. The nose is caramel coffee and a ton of dark roast. The flavor is tons of bitter dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, a hint of vanilla added, and plenty of alcoholic heat. The body is fully massive and oily with light carbonation and a long caramel and coffee finish.

Theydon_Bois (12178) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 10, 2014
Bottle split at home with JF, from that online Belgian shop - name escapes, 02/08/14. Black with a well appointed tan covering. Nose is light charr, dark malts, spice, pine, earthy hop, thick dark toffee. Taste comprises dark berry fruit, cocoa rub, pine, dark toffee sauce, spice, liqourice. Full bodied, fine carbonation - a touch cloying at times, boozey notes in the close. Decent enough offering but no world beater, came over more imperial stout than CDA for me.

Sample @ RBWG Grand Tasting. Brown pour with a small head. Nose of mellow coffee, ashed pine wood and dark roasted malts. Taste is pretty smooth and oily. Some acidic dark coffee, chocolate. Full body, soft carbonation.
