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.

harrisoni (13286) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2010
On tap at Pre ZBF 2010 and bottle at Mes’ Bite Hat Moon tasting. Wow that is a lot of coffee on the aroma. Massive coffee. Very smooth in the mouth and in the swallow. Lots of coffee on the end too. Lovely. Slightly drier in the bottle and the coffee is more balanced. Exceptional, if you love coffee, you will love this beer.

yngwie (13214) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle, courtesy of Meilby. A dark brown head, creamy and fingerthick forms over an oily jet black body. The aroma has a touch of alcohol, booze I guess, but in general I think it’s too weak. Coffee dominates, but I’d like more of it. Much more actually, and I’m certainly not a coffee drinker. The flavor is more interesting, at least the coffee is more evident, and there’s also some booze and dark chocolate. It’s full-bodied and oily on the palate, super soft. Lasting coffee finish with some booze. Certainly a nice one, but I’m not sure the barrel aging did the beer good. 120324

Bottled (BB 05/2015)
Thanks Pade for buying this one for me. Opaque black color, big creamy brown head. Strong aroma of coffee and tobacco ash with alcohol notes. Fuller body than in BD III. Beer is very "dark": lots of roasted, coffeish flavors, tobacco ash, burnt malts. Finish has some sweetness, perhaps from rum? Otherwise not rum found here. More mellow than III but still quite alcoholic.

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 11, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Struise Beershop.
Pour is completely black, really magnificent cappucino-beige head on top . Long duration. Aroma has a whole lot of coffee. Dry, hard roasted, grainy, light vinious, some earthy tones. Medium carbonation, extremely dry and creamy mouthfeel. This is a very dry beer. Some oakiness, lots of coffee, dark chocolate, figs, vinious, grainy, some clear rum notes. Long, lingering bitter and vinious finish. Lovely beer. Very dry, very elegant use of the barrels. Yum!
