    Pretty sure you can only buy it from De Struise and you need an account password from the site which I believe was only given out to people who had previously bought stuff from them before their site was hacked a year or two ago.

    I'm not sure about that and I don't see a translate button for the site like some other international sites I've seen.

    There is some commenting on the picture above. About how the price is jacked up and stuff. At some point Struise comes on and says:

    Het wordt dus hoogtijd dat we nog eens wat Cuvée Delphine veredelen naar Double Black ... release 30 maart as

    meaning:

    It's about time dat we'll upgrade some Cuvée Delphine to Double Black ... release next March 30th.

    That's all it says. So that's all the details that are known at this point.
    I just remember how this community pretty much went apeshit over the last release...

    I enjoy this beer and would love to get some more. But for the love of god can it come in a smaller format please like its original release? It would be awesome to beable to open a bottle without needing 6 people to finish it. (Not everyone can be Shogo and tank a 75cl of 26% beer by themselves.)

    Also, I believe a new website is in the works. They have been hinting about it for awhile as a better solution. You can still gain access to their current webshop (even if you have not ordered in the past) by emailing them or communicating via facebook.

    This came in a 750ml? I traded for a Mocha Bomb and Coffee Club and those were small bottles, maybe 11.2oz

    Correct. Double Black and Special Kay were 750ml for the last release. All the other black damnations were 33cl (Damnations 1-4) or draft only (Damnations 6-10) that im aware of.

    Indeed, the original release I believe. I mentioned that in my original post but my ranting probably covered it up.

    Yeah he bottled some in 33cl, but had a problem with the carbonation so only 750's most likely for now.

    I bought both of these in person on a trip to Belgium and asked why they didn't bottle them in smaller bottles. They said the beer was intended to be shared and that the larger bottle would help ensure it. Doesn't mean they will not be a release in a smaller bottle at some point but that was the reason they gave last year.

    Use Google Chrome and it should translate any foreign page you navigate to.

    So, looks like End of March i will be making another hour drive to pick up some damnation :) Was also talking to the guys last Saturday and they said the batch should be done in about a month or so, so end of March seems logical :)

    You're
    not supposed to share these. Drink it to the dome. Have two, since they reduced the size.

    It's a 750ml, I've had it before know what it can do, so willing to share. But if tempted I might try a solo mission
