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.

Bottle. Black with big creamy light brown head. Flavour is roasted malts, strong coffee, chocolate, bitter, sweet and hops.

Opaque black color, small steady tan head. Nose is really unique: coffee, coffee beans, dark malts and tobacco ash mixed in the intensive way. Flavor is similar: ash, burnt malts, some sweetier licoricey notes. Warming alcohol in the finish. There is too much roasted and ashy notes in this one to be pleasant.

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2010 Bottle with many thanks to Rando7. This was an unexpected toss in. Trade with this guy! Dark black pour with nice tan head. Nose is a mocha bomb! Lots of coffee, mocha, chocolates and roasted barley. Taste has dominant mocha coffee flavor with roasted malts, vanilla bean and and underlying oak barrel presence.

330ml bottle (?, ?) BB2015/
Kinda beany aroma, some burnt cabbage, bit of coffee, other roasty things.. Black, small tan head. Sweet smooth palate. Sweet sugary taste too. Erm, this one hasn’t aged particularly well, the sugar hasn’t subsided at all. Fairly drinkable though, but nothing to get excited by.Wish I’d traded this...

Bottle. A big, creamy, beige head rests patiently on top of a pitch black body. Lots of coffee on the nose, but also a good dash of something reminiscent of chili, guess it’s the coffee playing my mind some tricks. The flavor is filled with mocha, mocha and more mocha, and also the same chili-like thing found in the aroma. Dry, dusty and full-bodied on the palate, warming too. Long finish. A mocha bomb indeed, dangerously wonderful, still a bit intense and unusual to be a true classic. 110621

Ferris (17117) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 13, 2016
Bottle - Dark almost soured roast. Jet black with a rich light brown head. Dark roast and sweet, very light mocha and a touch of that sourness. Although not what expected, nice.

Benzai (16928) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAR 10, 2012
33cl bottle @ ZZT III, courtesy of Martinus. Pitch black color with a nice but small brown head. Smell malts, dark and roasted malts, coffee. Taste malts, dark and roasted malts, some sweetness, hints of wine and coffee. Average carbo, average body.

Dedollewaitor (16545) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle @ Beer Planet, Brussels. Pours black with a large foamy beige head and lacings. Nose is bitter roasted coffee/mocha. Flavor is smooth and dry with some burnt roasted coffee and mocha notes and a light note of vanilla. Very delicious and complex , yet so easy drinkable. Slick. A bit of warmth but alcohol very well hidden. World class!

Scopey (16277) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2012
Bottle at home. It pours jet black, with a gigantic dark beige head. The nose is treacle, lots of chocolate, liquorice, salted caramel, roasted malt and coffee. The taste is chocolate, toffee, caramel, vanilla, liquorice, coffee and lots of cocoa powder, with alcohol warmth in the finish. Full body and fine carbonation. Intense and delicious.

Ratman197 (15632) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Crosling (thanks Nick) poured a trans lucent dark brown nearly black with a lasting brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, burnt carmel, light bourbon and light oak. Palate was medium to full bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, coffee, burnt carmel, light bourbon and light vanilla with a smooth dry lingering mocha finish.
