Bottle shared by DalzAle. Pour is black brown with a soapy tan head that fades to a film. Aroma is funky green pepper and sweet malt scents. Taste is more sweet burnt malt and some more green peppers. Palate is medium to full feel with a strong fizzy chaulky dry finish. I think this one should be renamed to vegtable bomb.

Struise se osaa. Black Damnation II -Mocha Bomb on mustaa ja öljyisen näköistä tavaraa. Olut omaa ruskean vaahdon. Tuokussa on jalapenoa, kahvia ja maanläheistä multaisuutta. Maultaan mokkapommi on kahvinen, multainen, makea ja kuivan katkerahko. Suutuntuma on runsas, mutta voisi olla jopa runsaampikin. Mielenkiintoinen bourbonmainen chilisuklaaolut. Hieman chipotle Tabasco tulee tästä kyllä mieleen. Aika kovaa herkkua. cnardi (24) - ITALY - FEB 28, 2011
Piacevoli sentori di caffè in "polvere", legno e una leggera acidità. Nerissima con una densa schiuma color caffèlatte. Al gusto ritorna preponderante il caffè. E’ "densa" quasi "grassa". Finisce molto lunga e alcolica. Davvero buona. wyzzywyz22 (2752) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2011
Bottles from Struise Shop. Blacker than a goths wardrobe.with a pleasingly lasting muddyish tan head. Lookin’ good. Oh wow, just about the best smelling roasted coffee aroma you could hope for. Sniff after bloody sniff, just awesome. A clear 10. Some bourbon and vanilla notes lurked in the shadows also. Mouthfeel was bob on, fullish, smooth and velvety with gentle carbonation. The nose gave a fair indication of what was to follow, and once again there was a load of roasted coffee, plus chocolate and barrel notes. Plenty of complexity in there. Drinkability is just through the roof considering the ABV. All of the Black damnation series have been exemplary, but I think this could just be my favourite. This beer truly is da bomb. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - FEB 22, 2011

On tap at the local option. Pour is dark brown/black with a tan head. The earthy note on this brew is nearly off putting. Cocoa and toasty coffee is certainly present here. But wow... the earthy nose dominates. There is some dark fruits and brown sugars as well. A note of alcohol is present as well. Quite interesting, but it doesn’t quite work for me, really. blankboy (7808) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 21, 2011
Bottle [330ml] shared with HogTownHarry, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Pours black with a massive long-lasting fluffy tan head. Aroma has coffee galore, mocha really, along with leafy hops and roasted malt. Nice, big mocha flavour, malty and quite bitter along with some oaky and earthy notes. Medium bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Lovely, lovely stuff -- I love it! EricE (1372) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Draft at Max’s. Definitely the best of the Struisse black damnation beers. Thick tan head sits on a black pour. Very sweet coffee aroma with a hint of chocolate. Strong, slightly sweet coffee flavor. Hints of chocolate with a bitter finish. Reminiscent of Founder’s Breakfast Stout. konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2011
A coffee bean flavour dominates this beer, with traces of whisky and chocolate. Got a little too one-dimensional to be a great impy. Not a trace of those 12 % though. BeerandBlues2 (13821) - Escondido, California, USA - FEB 18, 2011
