COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Black Damnation series is a dark twist of Urbans 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 Cuve Delphine was used.

Beware: labels are the same, taste however isnt. Some bottles are recognizable because of he handwritten 2 on them.

vincentvega72 (622) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2016
Zwart als de nacht. Dik stroperig olieachtig bier met volle textuur. Koffie, cacao, leer, tabak. Licht zoetig met een subtiel bittertje. Zware jongen die je het best met kleine nipjes kunt drinken. Genietersbier.

DuffMan (10072) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2016
Bottle, shared at RBAG by dfearnley. Very dark brown, almost black. Rich mocha and cream, spicy undertones, fruit acids in the finish. The spicy nuances are amplified as the beer warms. Terrific.
