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.

Pours black with a tan head. Has a vanilla and toasted malt smell. Taste is similar with a bit of coffee in there. Little boozy but pretty nice

JoeMcPhee (8746) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 3, 2010
Bottle shared by puzzl. Pitch black pour with a massive, thick brown head. The nose is loaded with tobacco and coffee. Rich and fairly vanillaish. There is also a lot of dried raisin, rum and intensely rich and roasty. There is lots of cocoa and a very long lingering bitterness. A little bit of heavy chewiness. Cold coffee and rich roastiness. Earthy and intense.

puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Bottled. The aroma is big and smoky, with beefy notes of tobacco and well aged dark rum. Big and bold but not sweet, at least in the nose. The flavor hits up front with a touch of unfermented malt sugars, with a molasses-like rum body, and a roasty, chalky finish.
