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 a black color similar to the devils heart. Smells a bit of coffee and caramel. Some sweet chocolate is also the aroma. Can’t taste the ridiculous amount of alcohol in the beer. I say that wins as a beer.

Ataraxia (416) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Watery black pour, thin beige lacing. Aroma is a gag-inducing blast of green pepper and a little rye. Taste is possibly even worse with heavy oxidation and a sharp vinous upswing at the end. Mild sweetness and quite tannic. Smooth, somewhat creamy, little carbonation, and full-bodied. Really unfortunate that the coffee had oxidized so terribly.

Parket (578) - Bruges, BELGIUM - OCT 27, 2013
bottle 2009, dark brown colour with perfect beige head. Smell: roasted malts, coffee, chilli pepper. Taste: roasted malts, coffee, nice bitter stuff in the aftertaste. A little bit too overwhelming, over the top beer, but anyhow a very nice one.

BOLTZ7555 (2979) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Squid ink pour with a small latte head. Loads of dark roasted coffee, green pepper, raisin, and a bit of alcohol. Chewy and coating mouthfeel. Just not what I was looking for.

JefVerstraete (2137) - Ghent, BELGIUM - SEP 17, 2013
Black oily beer, dark brown foam. Soft carbonation. Very impressive! Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt. Very rich and complex. Very well balanced.

Ratman197 (11360) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting brown head. Aromas of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, coffee, honey, light vanilla, light rum and light oak. Palate was full bodied and smooth. Flavors of bitter chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, light coffee, light honey and light rum with a smooth lingering bitter chocolate finish.

JBoan (176) - Arizona, USA - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with thin tan head. Smell is roasted malt, burnt coffee, bitter baker’s chocolate, sweet sugar, raisins some faint leather and earthy notes. Taste is coffee, malt, chocolate, dark fruit and finishes with earthy flavors. Thick full-bodied beer, hides ABV very well. Great stout!

teddybeer (2805) - Madrid, SPAIN - SEP 14, 2013
Bottle. Black colour with a minimal tan head that quickly diminishes. Aroma is toasted and roasted malts, notes of licorice, candy sugar, mocha, black chcolate and coffee with wooden notes. Flavor is roasted malts, slightly sweet at the beginning with a high presence of black coffee, licorice, notes of rum and wood. Mild bittery in the final with light sweet notes, strong coffee and black chocolate with notes of rum. Smooth and creamy on palate.

330ml bottle shared at home. Pours like crude oil with a thin tan head. Looks lovely in the glass... lacing and legs... Aroma is coffee, vanilla, dark chocolate and raisins. Pipe tobacco. Taste delivers, and has just a hint of warming booze. Soft carbonation, long finish. Amazing.
