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".

madmitch76 (13404) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2010
4th March 2010. Pre ZBF. Opaque black beer. Dark malt and some green vegetable on the nose. Rich dark malt with a little fruit in the undertone. Dark red fruit plus subtle dentyne/bubblegum. A little unsweet dark chocolate. Finishes dry. The Caol Ila is quite subtle but the peaty dryness comes through. TLingering bitter hop aftertaste. Tasty and complex.

Bottle. Malty and smokey. Complex but still a good balance between the peat smokeyness and the beer.

blipp (5680) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Bottle at room temp. Pours near black with a tan head. Roasty aroma with a light peaty smokiness. The flavor has a nice balance of the original roasty notes and the whisky. Just enough peat and smoke so as to not be overwhelming. Very nice.

Bottle from Cracked Kettle. First off, well done Mes. One of the best brews in the world made for you!! It’s dark dark brown with a coco head. Nose is a rich and inviting stout with cocoa. Taste is of coffee sure, also plenty of whiskey, chocolate and vanilla. A really nice, subtle and silky blend. I really enjoy this one.

Bottle@home. Pitch black with a 2cm tan head which settles. No lacing. Wonderful aroma’s: heavy peat smoke, tar, leather, charcoal, An absolutely fantastic nose. Soft creamy mouthfeel, mild carbonation. Starts of sweet with raisins, dark fruit, candy sugar and develops into a glorious dry bitter finnish with notes of extreme cacao loaded dark chocalat, licorice and hints of black olives, Amen.

eManu (434) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - JUN 19, 2010
Pours a deep black color with a nice big dark tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolates, hops, liquorice, smoke and spices. Flavors of strong roasted malts, coffee, chocolates, liquorice, whiskey and spices. Good carbonation, light sweet and stronger bitterness, very dry finish. Some long lasting smokeyness, wood and whiskey notes. I am not a fan of whiskey but the complexity and great balance of the flavors are wonderfull. Packed with strong flavors that stays long in mouth. So wonderfull and pleasant.

BelgBeerGeek (1297) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUN 19, 2010
head: big and dark
colour dark as hell
smell: bitter , bit sweet , bit of coffee , malts , wood , whiskey/alcohol
taste: starts way more subtle and less powerfull than the black damn IV , better balance between the bitterness of the coffee and the malts and whiskey flavour ... the IV is very good but this is even better cause the coffee doesn’t comes out so hard and powerfull and i also like the whiskey touch in it very very good best of the black damn serie so far ,
well done urbain , well done !!! ;-)
