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.

bierkoning (13141) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2009
Bottle. Black and opague. Creamy, salty aroma with coffee, licorice, hints of oak and dried fruit. Full bodied, thick on the tongue. Malty salty flavor with coffee, oak, red fruit, dried fruit, vanilla and licorice. Very sweet and alcoholic, of course, but there is enough to compensate and make this a world class beer. A massive quality brew.
