Notes/Commercial Description:
"Black Damnation II is yet another blend with the use of Hel & Verdoemenis from Brouwerij De Molen. This time even 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. Another 25% of Cuvée Delphine was used."

3.85/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

330 mL bottle poured into a Kate the Great snifter. Best by 9/2015.

Appearance - Viscous black with an ample mocha head. It gets quite murky in the end. Must be a lot of chunks in this guy.

Smell - Lots of coffee. Not much else coming through. Acidic coffee. Like an overbrewed pot of coffee. It honestly isn't that appealing.

Taste - Bright coffee flavor up front with a nice milk chocolate malt behind it. Tingly alcohol, but it isn't boozy. I wonder if that's the barrels they talk about. I get almost no barrel character or whiskey flavor, just a little bit of oak.

Mouthfeel - Chewy and hardly boozy for 12%, which I kinda don't believe. This is thick and viscous, but nary a hint of alcohol to it besides that little tingle.

Overall - Lots of coffee that masks almost all of the beer aroma and a fair bit of the flavor. Impressive mouthfeel, though. Well crafted in that respect and even pretty tasty, if you like a coffee bomb of a stout.

3.66/5  rDev -13.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Serves in a snifter at Ale Arsenal.

A: Black. No head. Reddish edges but opaque.

S: It smells sour, wine-like.

T/M: It tastes completely different. Booze, vanilla, hints of roasted coffee, grapey finish. Rather thin bodied, especially for the ABV.

O: Delicious, but not exceptional. I wouldn't have another, but it's definitely interesting.

Serving type: on-tap
