COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Black Damnation series is a dark twist of Urban’s 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 III was made with Black Albert that aged for 3 months on Paul Melia’s (Mes) favorite Whisky, the "Caol Ila’s Distillers Version 1995".

Botella. Pitch black colour, light brown head. Lovely aroma of deep roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, some smoke. Great filling mouthfeel. The flavour is just sooo great: lots of heavy roasted malt and chocolate with coffee, some smoke, dark fruit, bit whisky. Pleasant bitterness. Sweet roasted malty chocolate long lasting finish. Yum indeeed!

12/11/10 notes. Courtesy of Michael. Most impressive beer I’ve tried in awhile. Pours opaque black with a lasting tan head. Aroma maintains almond, mocha, oak, powdered dark chocolate. Mature and sexy. Flavor has dark raisin, bitter mocha, woody earthiness. A most complex and decadent BA stout.

(Bottle, 0.33 l, at Pikkulintu) The beer poured pitch black. Its head was small and light brown. Aroma had roasted malts, vanilla, whisky and smoke. Palate was full bodied and dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were roastedness, whisky, smoke, vanilla, chocolate, ash and bitterness. Aftertaste was ashy and bitter. Caol Ila is quite strong flavoured whisky but the beer flavours were also so strong that the combination had good parts from the both.

esox (1177) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 8, 2010
Black beer, creamy beige head. Plentiful of aromas: licorice, vanilla, smoke, some tar, caramelly malts, chocolate the finish. Subdued but balancing herbal hops. Sweet maltiness, not very bitter. Full bodied, syrupy texture. Rich and comforting. Lovely.

Thanks to jrallen34 for this. Poured a thick black with a nice, fairly tall black head. Smells of roasted malt, smoke, and some peat. The taste has the same components, but for me the peat really stood out and completely dominated the other flavors, creating a one-dimensional beer. A bit overwhelming. Moderate body; somewhat dry. Not nearly as good as the other things I’ve had from De Struise. A bit of a disappointment. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 09-17-2010
