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.

hawthorne00 (7752) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2023
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2023 2/21 bottle. Black with a broken coat of tan head. Aroma of roast, mocha, Welsh cakes, spices, hints of sticky liquorice. Very smooth, low carbonation. Has presence but is not heavy. More coffee than chocolate, Welsh cakes, spiced bitterness. A little whisky lingers. Amusing how dominated by H&V this is.

josanguapo (4975) - SPAIN - DEC 4, 2022
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2022 De Capitán Amargo. En Sercotel Granada Suites. En copa shaker. Tras cena. Como suele sucederme con Struise, me resulta muy basta, con la madera aportándole una acidez que no termina de cuadrarme. Al menos en este caso la cosa no es excesiva y el abv está bien oculto, pero roba protagonismo al cafe

DraftDodger (6855) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 19, 2022
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2022 Copenhagen 19/11 2022. 33 cl bottle from Den Belgiske Ølbutik, Jyllingevej, Vanløse. Yellow, sinister skull on the label which looks like some Death Metal record cover from the nineties. Pours opaque, dark brown with s small beige head. A bit bubbly. Settles as thin rim of foam running along the side of the glass. Moderate lacing. Aroma is intense with a dark, sweet odor mingling with a light, sourish notes. Brown sugar, toffee, bitter licorice, coffee. Dark alcohol. A bit of sour grains. Light carbonation. Medium thick, oily soft, slightly viscous, smooth, almost flat texture. Flavor is intense with a strong sweetness followed by a medium strong sourish bitterness. Aftertaste is sweet with a notable bitter undertone. Lingers for a while. Finish is rather dry and laden with alcohol. Potent, sweet and boozy with a nice dry touch.

KevinReddirt (1592) - Midland, Texas, USA - NOV 19, 2022
UPDATED: NOV 19, 2022 Vintage 2018 33 cl bottle that came by way of a pleasant, if not happy, Belgian seller. My Great Heights snifter is ready and waiting, time to move forward. A brown-black liquid topped with a slender ring of silvery tan foam. The scent is dominated by chocolate with a bit of roast. But the drink, it is an explosion of various tastes. Dark chocolate, bourbon, dark bread, black raisins, sorghum and berries. The feel is thinner than I prefer but there you go. A good imperial stout from my best regarded brewer from anywhere.

rand (3180) - SWITZERLAND - NOV 4, 2022
UPDATED: NOV 4, 2022 Toute noire avec un semblant de nappage brun durant très peu. Arômes rôtis, café-chocolat, brûlé et Bourbon. Le goût est complexe, dominant café, chocolat, avec réglisse, vanille et brûlé. Il y a des notes poivrées et épicées, du cuir. Pourtant ni trop grasse ni trop alcooleuse. Sèche en finale avec un amer végétal de café et poivre.

Nische (4450) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2022
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2022 Bottle from Etre, aged for a few years (17 or 18 bottle). Black with beige head. Loads of espresso, some bitter chocolate, ashy. Some smokey green chili note makes it a bit green, but still not enough to make it distasteful. Good one which surprisingly aged quite nicely.

lasage (661) - DENMARK - OCT 6, 2022
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2022 Sort, tynd beige skum. Aroma er mørk malt, lidt sur/syrlig, lidt røget fad. Smagen er mørk malt, igen lidt syrlig/bitter som ikke rigtig passer til en stout, måske fra belgisk gær, noget sødlig vanilje, fad, bourbon, måtte gerne have mere fylde og fedme til stilen. Ikke lige min smag.

nihtila (5461) - Dunfermline, SCOTLAND - OCT 1, 2022
UPDATED: OCT 1, 2022 33cl 13% 03/21 bottle. Pours almost black, tan head. Nose is deep dark mocha, brownie, chocolate, molasses, hint or coffee, deep roast, liquorice, oak, sweet. Taste is full, sweet amd intense, mocha, fudge, coffee, oily molasses, sweet oaky vanilla, caramel. Big, sweet, boozy, but a lot going on and still fairly balanced in its category. Excellent.

Beese (15328) - Tooting, London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2022
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2022 750ml bottle thanks to Will. Black with a brown head. Aroma of complex oak, vanilla, liquorice and fudge. Really roasty flavour in there with lots of espresso, cocoa nibs and dark roast. Thick body. Roasty flavours lingering for ages with some fruity Belgian esters. Pure class.

Icedwarf (4007) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2022
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2022 Zwart bier met weinig schuim. Smaak is vrij zoet met wat chocolade, koffie en bourbon. Valt me persoonlijk wat tegen.
