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".

Small sample from bottle @ Zeebra II. Pours pitch black with a ring tan head. Aroma has licorice, molasses, sweetness, dark fruits, roasted malts and a bit of tartness. Taste has berries, dark fruits, coffee, roasted malts, some tartness and a medium bitterness. Over medium body and medium carbo. Good, but unfortunately a bit infected.

Black as night, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, ash, brett, peat, loads of coffee, chocolate. Bitter flavour, coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, caramel and ash. Full body, finish syrup, caramel, brown sugar, peat and ash. Nice! I was a bit surprised though to find brett notes in such a strong beer.
(From 75cL bottle shared @ DDvdK tasting room)

Bottle shared. Oily black pour with creamy brown foam. Aroma is rich tons of roasted grain, licorice, dark chocolate and molasses. Taste is sweet, burnt grain bitterness, massive anise, roasted grain, pure dark chocolate. Palate is full bodied, chewy with light carbonation. Huge beer, but really enjoyable.

tom10101 (3681) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). From verbalessence, thanks! Pitch black with a small bubbly beige foam and little legs. Aroma is of coffee, whiskey, roasted malt, dark chocolate, alcohol and light dark fruits. Taste is also of whiskey along coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate, wood, boozy notes and hints of dark fruits. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Warming finish. Quite complex and tasty. Not as decadent as other from the series. A little dryer too. Still a really good RIS.

On tap at Falling Rock Tap House. Big, Big Beer. Nose of peat, smoke, bacon, and charcoal. Rich, malty backbone. Hints of coffee and grit. Finishes dry and smoky. Would go well with a ribeye.
