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".

bhensonb (11809) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 26, 2010
Bottle from Bier Temple in Brussels. Pours black with a foamy dark tan head. Aromas of scotch and oak. Very thick body. Very mild carbonation. Slightly sticky; burnt malt, "scotch" and oak. No significant heat - barely detectable. Almost chewy. A smoother version than the Brewdog equivalents.

Koelschtrinker (11537) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Süßer und deutlich kaffeeartiger Antrunk, ausgeglichen. Dazu deutlich malzlastig, was sich schnell steigert. Dabei gleicht die Süße aus, so dass die Malzigkeit nicht so stark erscheint, wie sie eigentlich ist. Sehr schokoladig, herllich aromatisch, gleichzeitig wirkt der Hopfen frisch und bringt so neuen Schwung in das Bier. Sehr gelungenes und erstaunlich weiches Bier. 8/12/12/10//11

Christian (11393) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2010
Black with a small, light brown head. Aroma of licorice, ink, wood, and a faint hint of peat smoke (just the way it shuld be). Sweetish rich licorice flavour with smoke, tar and charcoal adding to the complexity.

Tmoney99 (11372) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2011
Draft. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy bittersweet woody malt flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

thewolf (11303) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 17, 2010
Bottle, bought @ the Struise Beershop.
Pours is entirely, completely black. Really firm, creamy, cappucino head. Great looks for a stout. Aroma is sweetish, there is clear vanilla, roasted, dark chocolate, oak. Light tartness, blackberries, a hint of whiskey and port. A bit of figs and plums. Lovely, complex. Lowish carbonation, wonderful creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is really fabulous as well. Roasted malts, wood, dry, chocolate, some slight grainy cappucino coffee sweetness. Magnificiently balanced, almost no hint of the 13 %. Good choice of cask, my good Mes! Impressive!
