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.

Smells of sour raisens. Big rich raisen plum skin mollases oak flavour with long bitter blasted cherry finish. If I wasn’t a session beer drinker I’d love it.

A pitch black pour with a beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, coffee and some spices/herbs. Taste of sweet roasted malts, caramel, coffee, dark fruit, bit of chocolate and wood. Yet another great Struise Brew.

Hot and roasty on the nose. Raisins all over it some deep but not bitter chocolate in the mouth. It’s really a little too much.

33 cl bottle at 13 %. Nose is light organic coffee and light roast. Flavor is light roasted malt, mild coffee with some notes of soy sauce. Mouthfeel is oily with a medium body. Almost has a porter feel rather then a stout. However, I could just be a really spoiled beer geek. I didn’t get any hit of rum or aged barrels or wood. Decent and no way bad bit not top tier.

What a beer. Aroma is fantastic with tons of rich coffee, nuts, toast, and chocolate. Taste is heavily coffee with dark fruits and a smooth roastiness that is perfect. Just great.

330 mL bottle tasted alongside the first four in the series, served in a snifter. Pours black with a small tan head that fades to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of fine lace. On the nose, there are huge coffee notes, along roasted malts, molasses and a significant rum accent. The flavour is moderately sweet throughout, with a light bitterness up front that becomes moderate. There are notes of coffee and roasted malts from the nose, but also distinct notes of rum and cane. The finish is long and roasty with a slight alcoholic burn. On the palate, it is full in body with a smooth, syrupy texture and flat carbonation. Overall, this is an interesting brew, but the rum did not work for me. 2012-08-01
