COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

From tap at pre-ZBF. Aroma is dense herbal coffee. Light caramelish roasted note. Solid and overload coffee in the flavour. Light sweetness and espresso like bitterness. Dark malty and coffee flavoured into the finish. Too much coffee for me, this is more espresso than beer - good in a very small sample for a dessert.

Ungstrup (29828) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 27, 2012
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thick dark brown head. The aroma has notes of coffee, roasted malt, and oil. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, coffee, alcohol, wood, and a bit of rum, leading to a dry, roasted coffee, and woody finish.

Bottle 33 cl. RBESG Rome 2010. Pours cloudy and opaque - almost muddy - dark brown, close to black, with a light brown head. Distinct hard roasted coffee in the nose - almost chili-like. Very full body, prunes and other dark dried fruits, plenty of burned malts and coffee. Burned bitterness in the finish. 040610

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 7, 2010
Bottled (from Struise Beershop). Quite much pitch black colour with reddish brown fluffy longlasting head. Some slight lace. Aroma is ashes, strong black coffee, some chililike burning notes as well as some wood and alcohol. Mild tobacco as well. Flavour is roasted malts, ashes, some alcohol, mild stinging sweetness, some wood as well as mild notes of soap and burnt wet wood. Also some slight chililike burning notes in there. Good sipping beer, but a bit too sweet for my likes. Also I’m quite amazed to find the palate a bit thin, even though the beer is full with flavours and aromas.

omhper (19935) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2011
Bottled, thanks Baggio! Very black, small beige head. Evident coffee aroma. Mid dry, more slimmed and vinous than expected, but huge on espresso. Also the bitterness is milder than expected. A potent winter wamer that remains drinkable. Well done!

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!
