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.

Fľaša. Tmavá, až olejová hnedá farba, stredne hnedá pena. Vôňa úžasne kávová, čokoládová. V chuti pražené slady, káva, jemne vanilka, prezreté slivky. Nádherné pivo, úžasne jemné a pitné. Chuť, ako keby to ležalo v sudoch po bourbon.

A-- Poured an oily looking reddish black color. Settled black, no light penetrating this at all. Nice looking head. A sort of dark reddish brown leather looking head. One finger in height and looks like a mousse with the thickness in the head. Sits at a nice layer of film. Great spotty lacing and leaves a dark reddish brown layer of film in the glass. S-- Strong, powerful coffee. Has held up well with some age. Marshmallow, peat, wood, chocolate, char and ash. Just very vibrant and a big nose. Just lovely. T-- Roasted coffee, dark chocolate, coco powder, carmel and some char and ash. Nice well rounded flavors. M-- Low carbonation and medium feel. Slick and oily in the mid and back with a overdrawn coffee and burnt tire finish. Slightly sweet as well. Well hidden ABV. O--- Excellent example of a RIS with coffee. Slightly dry, slightly sweet, coffee in the right spots. Well hidden ABV and just a fun beer to drink on a cold night. Will buy again if given the chance.

Draft at Max’s. Thin light tan head on a thick black pour. Some coffee on the nose with a bit of chocolate. Sticky sweet flavor. Coffee flavor present, though not particularly bright or fresh. Tons of alcohol on the finish. A bit of a mess compared with the Mocha Bomb.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Bottle @ Kulminator. Pours dark as night, nice tan head throughout entire beer. Big espresso nose, ground coffee, clumps of dirt, booze, earthy, not getting the rum barrels. Taste goes espresso boozy punch in the tongue..powerful, but not aggressive. Don’t get any barrel. Great coffee stout nonetheless.
