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".

Silky black. Nose presents a deep fragrance of chocolate cake and mocha, with a touch of peat. Drinks like a more mature Black Albert, with just light traces of peat and barrel. Insane richness. Decadent silky dark malt goodness, super chocolaty, roast, sweet dark fruit. Finish lasts for minutes, initially dominated by fudge and then black licorice. Will only get better with age.

Valentine’s Day gift from EM, bottle from Proof. Pours the blackest of blacks with creamy chocolate colored head that started at an inch, then settled into a very thick collar and a thin layer of foam across the surface. Good legs and light lacing. Aroma is very odd: smells earthy and funky, like a farmhouse style funk. I get some black raspberry and black currant. Taste is rich dark malt, light smoke, a touch of coffee with all of that dark fruit at the tail end and aftertaste. There’s a faint briny flavor, maybe from the scotch, and some woodiness present as well. Silty and rich thick mouthfeel, full bodied and low-medium carbonation.

Draft. Black beer with a brown head. Herbal and rich malt flavor with light licorice. Malt and light toffee flavor with herbal notes and alcohol. Medium-plus bodied. Malt and alcohol lingers with herbal notes and caramel.

fajry (203) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 5, 2014
Flaska. Velmi tmava, az cierna farba s hustou tmavou penou. Vona je prazeny slad, horka kava a sladky slivkovy lekvar. V chuti opat citit horku kavu, alkohol, slivkovy lekvar a zlahka karamel. Fantasticke pivo!

Gurthnar (1251) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - APR 5, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is plum, a bit colaish, light coffee ans roasted. Almost black colour. Taste has really strong prunes, some liquorice and candy, carbonation is assertive and supporting. Very pleasant roasted-fruity finish. Considering the ABV, easily drinkable, and alcohol hidden well.

Complex aroma of roasted malts, dark fruits, coffee, oak, peat, dark chocolate, whiskey. Flavour is roasty, whiskey, peaty, dark fruit sweetness with a hint of tartness which pushed this brew over the edge for me. Alcohol is remarkably well hidden. Delicious.
