The Black Damnation series is a dark twist of Urbanís 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.

AndrewC (337) - Canterbury, Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 21, 2013
Smells of sour raisens. Big rich raisen plum skin mollases oak flavour with long bitter blasted cherry finish. If I wasnít a session beer drinker Iíd love it.

Alphadelic (1840) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Hot and roasty on the nose. Raisins all over it some deep but not bitter chocolate in the mouth. Itís really a little too much.

Gerbeer (2169) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 28, 2013
330 ml bottle. Pours black with little head. Aromas of cocoa powder, dry chocolate, and plums. Rich complex flavors: dry coffee, espresso, oily vanilla... Excellent

AirForceHops (3960) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 27, 2013
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 didnít get any hit of rum or aged barrels or wood. Decent and no way bad bit not top tier.
