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 IV was made with Black Albert that aged for 6 months on very old rum barrels.

blipp (5830) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUL 13, 2010
Bottle. Pours near black with a tan head. Big espresso coffee and roasted malt aroma. The flavor is also heavily roasted, with tons of coffee, a light sweetness, some charred woodiness, and a nice bitter roasted finish. A bit heavy on the coffee for me to love it, but I definitely had no problem putting back the 12 oz bottle. Very good.

madmitch76 (14286) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2010
4th March 2010. Pre ZBF. Opaque black beer. Friohy brown head. Smells hoppy but with some green vegetables as well. Smooth soft and semi dry palate. Fresh fruity/vegetal malt. Some coffee but not too much. Finishes soft and dry with a little coffee bitterness coming through. An unusual beer!

eManu (440) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2010
Pours a deep black color with a very thick dark tan color head. Aroma of strong roasted malts, coffee, chocolates and spices, and smokey. Flavors of strong roasted malts, coffee, dry plums, chocolates, liquorice, hints of rhum and oak, hints of pepper, nuts and spices. Good carbonation, lightly sweet and good bitterness, dry. Some smokeyness. Very strong and complex flavors. Very litle water in this brew, its quite thick. The flavors changes over time, and every sip is a different experience. The rum is deffinitivly present, makes a nice ending touch. Very enjoyable, This is a top brew.
