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.

A dmoni fekete testen csak egy szempillants erejig időzik a megszokott, fahj s kakapor sznezetű bzs hab, megforgatva harsnyan szrja flelmetes aromit. Kvszirup, tzes whiskey, bourbon vanlia s megannyi elegns csemege, nem kimondottan gyerekeknek val dessg. Ez hatvnyozottan igaz lehet az első kortyaira is, amik taln nem nagy meglepetsre az I-es verzi nyomn haladnak zvilg tekintetben. A folykony csokolds, befőttszerű gymlcss vonal ez esetben is alapjt kpezi a főzetnek, a kvs hangulat, valamint az alkohol jobban kidomborod, de semmikppen nem kitremkedő karaktere sszetettebb teszik a szerkezetet. Ha lehet, egy fokkal taln mg frfiasabb ital, mint a Black Damnation I, legnagyobb ernye azonban a komplexitsa, vgtelen mlysgei, zabolzhatatlannak tűnő, valjban inkbb mrnkien megtervezett vadsga. Minden egyes korty felr egy robbanssal, amint a csokoldfagylaltra nttt cseresznyeszirup, a vanlis kv s a whiskey-vel megbolondtott krmlikőr okozta ingerek vad mokfutsba kezdenek. Szntiszta varzslat minden perce.

solidfunk (7881) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Wonderful stuff. Toasty smoke, chocolate and lots of body. Coffee is a presence but well integrated. Black pour with great mocha head and lacing. Thick creamy consistency. Awesome. Thanks to iPhonephan for this gem.

Flaske delt med Ovesen: klsvart, med hjt kakaobrunt skum. En overraskende aroma av blbr og bjrnebr sammen med nydampet eikespon (medium roast!). Eikespon er ogs fremtredende i den braktige smaken, men n med et delikat anslag av nyristede kaffebnner i tillegg. Eminent drikkbar selv med sitt kraftige utslag p Richters skala.

750ml bottle shared in a snifter. Pours a black oily liquid with a thin brown head. Aroma is fairly un-complex (particularly given the processes required to produce it). Taste much the same burnt malt, bitterness little hint of barrel aging and certainly no mocha. This could well have been an infected bottle (2012). White mould occupying the neck of the bottle and floating in the beer. Sadly, this is an all too common occurrence with the Black Damnation beers. Fortunately, previous examples (Coffee Club and Nuptiale A2) have proved to taste excellent so whether the less than spectacular taste is down to the (possible) infection remains to be seen. I have a further bottle with no mould that I will update this review with when I have tried that one. Disappointed. Certainly not worth the price.
