Brouwerij de Molen Black Damnation II- Mocha Bomb
As part of a beer trade with Lee from Hoptopia, I received a bottle of Brouwerij de Molen Black Damnation II- Mocha Bomb. The beer pours a deep, dark black color with a very frothy and tan head, with a great lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of heaps of coffee with deep black Belgian chocolate taking over the nostrils. The taste is bold and chocolaty with lots of coffee, espresso, toasted malts, and a hint of vanilla. The finish is drying with a nice bite of bourbon alcohol. The alcohol content is 12.0% ABV. Wow, what a powerful punch of dark chocolate and coffee that is packed into this one bottle of beer. I loved the dryness of the Belgian chocolate, and the bourbon alcohol kick at the end doesn’t hurt either.
