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.

yngwie (16889) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2011
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 its 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

mcberko (16651) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle, pours jet black with a quickly-dissipating bubble brown head. Aroma of darkly roasted espresso beans, dark roasted malts, and unsweetened cocoa - dont get any of the barrels on the nose. Flavour of whiskey barrels and espresso beans upfront, some chocolate buried in there, finishing with the whiskey barrels and quite a powerful alcohol kick. Medium-bodied but powerfully flavoured. The alcohol is much more prominent in this rendition, but this is nevertheless excellent.

jtclockwork (15989) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2010
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.

Dedollewaitor (15920) - 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!

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 hasnt aged particularly well, the sugar hasnt subsided at all. Fairly drinkable though, but nothing to get excited by.Wish Id traded this...

Ferris (14412) - 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.
