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.

33cl bottle, bought from the Struise Shop in Bruges. Pours pitch black with a brown head. Smells heavily of roasted malt, ash, a hint of fruit and rum, and molasses. Tastes of fruity rum, a heavy sweetness, and a mild to medium bitterness. Texture is smooth and creamy as hell. Medium to full bodied. Soft carbonation. Finishes slightly bitter and roasted with a long duration. Wonderful.

Color : dark sweet black beer with small carbonization and medium brown foam. Very appetizing beer!!! :) Smell : chocolate, coffee, malt, and sugar complexity, and species at the end. Taste : great complexity in mouth you really feel the sugar presence, coffee and chocolate (of course). Aftertaste : malt and chocolate with coffee presence (more precisely : cold sugar coffee). Really Amazing! I recommend it! Great experience! (Ideal for Autumn or Winter)

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2012 Che birra! aroma di caffe tostato e di rum. Al palato si presenta tipo Borghetti con una apporto infinitesimale di malto tostato è un retrogusto amaricante, sempre "caffettoso" e persistente. Il tutto imbevuto di una buone dose d’alcol che rendono questa birra molto liquorosa. Proprio buona.

Pours a deep black color with a very thick dark tan color head. Aroma of strong roasted malts, coffee, chocolates and spices, and smokey. Flavors of strong roasted malts, coffee, dry plums, chocolates, liquorice, hints of rhum and oak, hints of pepper, nuts and spices. Good carbonation, lightly sweet and good bitterness, dry. Some smokeyness. Very strong and complex flavors. Very litle water in this brew, its quite thick. The flavors changes over time, and every sip is a different experience. The rum is deffinitivly present, makes a nice ending touch. Very enjoyable, This is a top brew.

Pours black with mocha head. Tart nose like the mocha and mes. Coffee bean tartness with chalky filmy after taste. I think these need an acquired taste. Maybe I’m off.

Smells of sour raisens. Big rich raisen plum skin mollases oak flavour with long bitter blasted cherry finish. If I wasn’t a session beer drinker I’d love it.

Pours black with a tan head. Has a vanilla and toasted malt smell. Taste is similar with a bit of coffee in there. Little boozy but pretty nice
