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.

thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 30, 2011
Bottle at Den Zytholoog, Adegem. All black with an enormous, light brown and creamy head. Acidic and roasted coffee aroma- the coffee is intense! Coffee flavours that would make any coffee shop jealous; rich, acidic and roasted. Even hints of chocolate. Full-bodied. State of the art.

pushkinwow (2755) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 27, 2011
33cl bottle. Dark brown with a generous brown head, huge bubbles, fades to a nice layer. Roasted but earthy coffee, grainy, booze, vanilla bourbon and wood. Taste it quite boozy, get raisins and plumbs so starts sweet but becomes bitter from the coffee. Almost overly carbonated, Some anise and booze on the aftertaste - have to say a little disappointed in the beer - shows potential but one dimensional and needs some time to lose the heat.

Tweeke (37) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2011
Bottle. Peppery, spicy aroma. Instant cacao bitterness in the taste. Lots of fresh spiciness and coffee flavour. A low key sweetness that reminded me of a well made cappuccino. Very well hidden alcohol and quite a dry/bitter aftertaste. Very interesting and pleasant beer, a true masterblend.

BMan1113VR (7921) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 17, 2011
Bottle thanks to mattolesh. Pours with a black body and a small tan head that slowly fades. Good lace. Aromas are roasty, earthy, mineral, pencil led, vegital, iodine, earthy coffee, fudge, mocha, vanilla and brown sugar. Flavors are alcohol, vegital matter, coffee, estery, minerally. Finishes a bit dry, iron, medium bubbles. Coffee seemed to add odd off-flavors to this one. Unroasted bean flavors.

SirLimpsalot (4054) - SWEDEN - MAY 15, 2011
Flaska p Basunen 2011: Stort smutsigt skum och en underbar tung mocka/kaffe-doft. Fantastisk fyllig smak av torr kaffe, sump och stma i skn harmoni. Eftersmaken r helt underbar lng och ger en ganska torr munknsla. Mycket st men mycket, mycket god.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 14, 2011
On tap at the 2011 Maxs Belgian Fest: Pours an oily opaque with a creamy froth of dark beige head. Has a rich roasty coffee nose with sweet dark caramel and chocolate with some raisins. Sweet chewy dark caramel and chocolate malty body has good complexity and mocha flavor. Finishes rich and bittersweet with some lingering roastiness and hides the alcohol well. Immensely complex and savory, a good dessert beer.

Goodgrief (2017) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAY 13, 2011
Bottle best before Sept 2015...but I couldnt wait that long. Dark pour and huge frothy head. Strong coffee aroma. This thing is coffee and sweet chocolate in spades. So freaking amazingly smooth...like melted chocolate infused with fine French pressed coffee. Some odd sweet, maybe fruity (?) flavor which was slightly out of place was all that kept this from being really elite. Still damned (see what I did there?) good!

Rating #537, bottle from lbutikken

A black beer with a nice brown head. Aroma is strongly marked by coffee grounds, thyme and a bit alcohol. Coffee is all dominating. The taste has liquorice and coffee, coffee grounds and ends in a nice, strong bitter finish. Good thick, soft palate. While this one is probably tastier than Black Damnation III, it is a bit more one dimensional. Black Damnation III is a more interesting experiment in my opinion, but this is definately a great brew in itself and does not deserve to be overshadowed by its younger twin.
