COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Black Damnation series is a dark twist of Urbanís 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 Meliaís (Mes) favorite Whisky, the "Caol Ilaís Distillers Version 1995".

RasmusOtt (1051) - Aalborg, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2011
Pours pitch black with a dark brown head. Aroma is smoke, peat, vanilla, dark sugary fruits, liquorice, light acetone and woody alcohol. Taste is big strong and sweet. Add a bit more liquorice and roasted notes, but itís still vert very sweet and the alcohol is there.

Slayer85 (1044) - Firenze, ITALY - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle. A pitch black beer with a large, frothy, creamy, fully lasting brown head. The aroma is moderately malty. There are notes of roasted/burnt grain, chocolate, whiskey, oak, vanilla and alcohol. The flavour is heavily sweet, lightly sour, lightly bitter. Some coffee in the taste. Full body, creamy texture, average/lively carbonation, extremely long finish with heavy bitterness, heavily alcoholic. Very nice appearence and after all complex, but there is too much whiskey, itís almost harshly alcoholic, and perhaps the burnt malt note is excessive. I liked Black Damnation IV a lot, this is an OK beer, but not at the same level of Coffee Club or even the regular Black Albert, as far as Iím concerned.

Good looking but very soft nose. Very fruity and slightly sour taste. Lots of chocolate and brandy soaked cherry. Bits of ash, char, cherry and peat in finish.

Bottle shared by Mike. Thanks Mike!! Pours black with tan head. Aroma is coffee, dark fruit, chocolate, tobacco, and booze. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor follows the nose and has a burnt taste, ash, and finishes with a nice boozy mellow flavor. Nice.

ksurkin (1021) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - APR 2, 2011
11.2oz bottle courtesy of madmitch76. thanks, ken! pours an oily, slick black with a thick, creamy, dark khaki head with great retention and thick sheets of lace. aroma is awesome with huge, in-your-face, whiskey, cedar wood, and dark chocolate but as it warms notes of roasted malts, mocha coffee, charcoal, and toffee emerge along with subtle notes of topsoil and peat. flavor is deliciously intense with big notes of smokey, peat whiskey, roasted malts, and black coffee up front backed by dark chocolate, hints of tart, vinous fruits, and charred leather with a touch of hazelnut and quinine on the back end. palate is rich, smooth, and well cabonated with a long, bittersweet, smokey and roasted finish. overall, another fantastic edition of the black damnation series.

Bottle thanks to the Wolf. Cheers mate. Pours jet black with very dense large dark brown head. Plenty of whiskey, roasted grain and alcohol on the nose. Roasted grain bitterness shows through in the flavours. Plenty of alcohol on the finish. Fullish mouthfeel.
