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.

JoeMcPhee (8837) - 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.

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.

(33cl bottle thanks to blutt59) Pours a jet black with tan head. Aroma has strong dark roasted grain notes and coffee. Flavor of dark roasted grain and coffee with a dark roast coffee bitterness at the end. Mouth feel is heavy body with low carbonation. Overall, damned good!

blipp (6709) - 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.

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!
