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.

Bottle 75cl, a dark beer with medium brown head, got long gushing with 13° !! Nose is on wood and cherries as for an oude bruin with roasted notes. Aroma is sweet, very roasted, got the typical wood and oude bruin touch, donno if this is normal for it. Anyway bit disappointed about whole complexity, yes too expensive for what it is.

Currently drinking whilst typing. Lively beer; it gushed quite vigorously when opened which was highly irritating especially when I've paid a lot of money for such a beer, needless to say I licked the spillage off of the kitchen table! Aroma is rich and laden with sweet alcohol notes, liquorice, dark fruits, dark rum, gentle coffee and slight esters of sour yeast. Pours as a terrifyingly black vessel with a bubbly beige/tan head which isn't around for long. Taste is ludicrously rich, a powerfully sweet barrel aged alcohol note, burnt black malts, liquorice, slight coffee, red wine, with an aftertaste of a sweet, fruity and dark rum. Seems slightly thinner than a standard Black Albert, though it still has a big body and filling mouthfeel, it has a bit more of an oily texture; a tingly carbonation is present too. Overall, it is a must try beer! Hard to get hold of and very expensive, but being an explorer of beer; this was a chance I could not pass. Go get some!

Amazing stout. Pitch black with great taste evolution. Coffee is not to dominant. But the price you pay for a bottle is to high

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2014 Drank a 2012 bottle with Thijs 15-2-2014. Dark color. Little foam and consequently little carbonation in the taste. Coffee smell, also dominant in the beginning. Continues however with rich sweetness. Good! Edit: rated slightly higher after drinking it again 5/6/2014. Edit2: again, slighty changed my rating after sharing a bottle with Thijs 11/7/2014. I like the dominance of the taste, it really grabs you. Very expressive and rich beer.

Bouteille de 75cl. Complexité de la Black Albert avec une bonne présence du rhum du au vieillissement en fût. Excellent !

From the 22 ounce bottle. Coffee. Sticky. Pitch black. Much like some of the others in this series. Chocolate to finish. Nice.

Mortlach (1474) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 23, 2013
23/12/2013 Bir&Fud Bottega (330ml bottle). Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma scurissima, color cappuccino, fine, abbondante e persistente. Aroma di cappuccino, caffettoso, con note di nesquik, molto intenso. In bocca è spettacolare, bilanciata e pulitissima, attacco dolciastro, finale caffettoso amaro, alcol non pervenuto. Corpo pieno, carbonazione media. Finalmente una Black Damnation di altissimo livello!
