COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Small bottle from circa 2012. Pours inky black, small brown head, dissipates to a ring that laces well. Aroma is rich mocha and green peppers. Flavor follows, medium sweet and medium bitter, lots of coffee, a bit stale but that is likely my fault for sitting on this one. Green pepper notes present, as well as chocolate and dark roasted malts, plus some molasses. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Solid, but I bet it was better in its prime.

Bottle sampled was a gusher. Pours pitch black with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, and vanilla. Flavor was thick roasted coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla bean and had some notes of dark fruit. Oily texture, full body, dry finish.

Viscous piceous black pour with one finger of tight burnt chestnut brown head. Nose shows alcohol and fruit skins with some sweet Belgian esters. Some burnt raisin shows with a touch of coffee in the background. Hints of brandy show too. Rich and dense in the mouth. Warming with alcohol with some smooth coffee liqueur on the finish. Black fruit skins and black strap molasses/burnt sugar. Medium full bodied.

adster (829) - HUNGARY - DEC 21, 2014
A démoni fekete testen csak egy szempillantás erejéig időzik a megszokott, fahéj és kakaópor színezetű bézs hab, megforgatva harsányan szórja félelmetes aromáit. Kávészirup, tüzes whiskey, bourbon vanília és megannyi elegáns csemege, nem kimondottan gyerekeknek való édesség. Ez hatványozottan igaz lehet az első kortyaira is, amik talán nem nagy meglepetésre az I-es verzió nyomán haladnak ízvilág tekintetében. A folyékony csokoládés, befőttszerű gyümölcsös vonal ez esetben is alapját képezi a főzetnek, a kávés hangulat, valamint az alkohol jobban kidomborodó, de semmiképpen nem kitüremkedő karaktere összetettebbé teszik a szerkezetet. Ha lehet, egy fokkal talán még férfiasabb ital, mint a Black Damnation I, legnagyobb erénye azonban a komplexitása, végtelen mélységei, zabolázhatatlannak tűnő, valójában inkább mérnökien megtervezett vadsága. Minden egyes korty felér egy robbanással, amint a csokoládéfagylaltra öntött cseresznyeszirup, a vaníliás kávé és a whiskey-vel megbolondított krémlikőr okozta ingerek vad ámokfutásba kezdenek. Színtiszta varázslat minden perce.

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.

Holmen1 (6466) - Stavanger, NORWAY - NOV 30, 2014
Flaske delt med Ovesen: kølsvart, med højt kakaobrunt skum. En overraskende aroma av blåbær og bjørnebær sammen med nydampet eikespon (medium roast!). Eikespon er også fremtredende i den bæraktige smaken, men nå med et delikat anslag av nyristede kaffebønner i tillegg. Eminent drikkbar selv med sitt kraftige utslag på Richters skala.
