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.

Abio (1859) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAY 21, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2014 Bottle. Almost pitch black, very small head, brown, holds good. Roasted smell of coffee, chocolate, mokka, red fruits and spices. Could be some more carbonation for me, a bit to flat, costs points... Heavy roasted taste like the smell, lots and lots of coffee. Biterness comes in at the end, and holds very long. Good brew, wished it had some more gas inside, cause this causes some points at the appearance and taste. After retasting a couple of times I only could at some more points.

mmahut (1858) - CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 24, 2013
Pours in ultimately dark body with creamy beige head. Aroma is smoky, sweet of candy sugar and licorice, almost like wood ashes, loaded with coffee. Taste is bitter in front with sweet tail at the end, complex flavours are little bit masques by the bitterness, sadly. Body is full, creamy, well carbonation. Great beer.

cpetrone84 (1810) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2011
A-pours a jet black liquid with tons of creamy mocha colored head and lingers for a bit. S-the nose is roasted coffee, slightly burnt, light notes of ash with some bourbon and wood undertones. dark plums in the back and a little sugary. T-the taste is more expressive than the nose. roasted malts and dark chocolate with notes of espresso and a faint bourbon and wood flavor underneath. the plums are very faint in the back and it is less so than the nose. M-fuller body and very creamy on the palate. nicely carbonated with a good slightly dry finish. D-this beer is very nice, a nice balance or roasted malt flavors and some sweetness in the back. the barrel components are quite light but they are faintly detectable.

Foffern (1803) - Bod, NORWAY - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle at Delirium Caf, Brussels. Pours a black colour with a medium coffee-like and brown head. An amazing roasted aroma with burned wood, camp fire, coal and dark chocolate. This continues in the mouth with the addition of dried fruit, berries, dark wood, wonderdul dark chocolate and lots of dark coffee. Has an oily mouthfeel, and a medium bitterness. One of the most complex and delicious beer Ive ever tried. Very balanced with a great roasted touch.

BMMillsy (1788) - Florida, USA - JAN 25, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2014 Bottle from local shop popped right after an infected BD3: Black Mes. This one is another gusher. Pours pitch black with a small mocha colored head into my mini snifter. A somewhat metallic aroma with cardboard, roasty chocolate, and, yes, more sour apple as in the Black Mes. Ffffck this. Flavor is sour apple cardboard with no trace of coffee, and maybe just a hint of chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with lowish carbonation but on the thinner side relative to what was expected. This seems both infected with bacteria and a good bit oxidized. Complete garbage.

The first of the Black Damnation series Ive tried. This pours pitch black with a thick long-lasting creamy tan head. If theres a better looking Imperial Stout Id like to see it. Thin sheets of lacing coat the glass after each sip before falling back down. The aroma shows roasted espresso, milk chocolate, some ripe dark fruit burried in there, and a touch of caramel. The coffee is no doubt strong in the flavor standing way out along with dark chocolate. But this is really slick going down for such a big beer. Thats not suprising as Black Albert is the same way. A bit of charred wood and sweet toasted caramel join in with some soft bourbon finishing it off. Something in there is just throwing this off a tad for me and I cant really figure it out. Perhaps the roast isnt matching the sweetness of the beer but regardless its pretty minor. Overall this isnt as complex as it sounds but still very good. Its incredible to me how easy drinking Struise can make 12%. This glides along without any effort at all and I find myself quickly reaching for another sip. Heck, my wife, who hates most Imperial Stouts I hand her, even thought this one was good.

LoFi (1714) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2011
Bottle. Black with a large light brown head leaving lacing. Aroma: lots of coffee grounds, sump, sourish candy, berries, ashes/tobacco. Taste: chocolate, liqueur, coffee grounds, licorice, slightly sourish red berries, a bit hard to describe. Full-bodied, smooth, almost liqueurish.
