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.

Barrelbelly (622) - BELGIUM - MAY 19, 2012
Pitch black with large dark brown head. Very intense aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, some rum. Taste also full with chocolate, coffee and a liquorish finish with some bitterness that lasts. Great beer.

maledictum (613) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - FEB 24, 2012
Pitch black pour with a massive, thick brown head. The nose is loaded with tobacco and coffee. Rich and fairly vanillaish. There is also a lot of dried raisin, rum and intensely rich and roasty. There is lots of cocoa and a very long lingering bitterness. A little bit of heavy chewiness. Cold coffee and rich roastiness. Earthy and intense.

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)

bottle 2009, dark brown colour with perfect beige head. Smell: roasted malts, coffee, chilli pepper. Taste: roasted malts, coffee, nice bitter stuff in the aftertaste. A little bit too overwhelming, over the top beer, but anyhow a very nice one.

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 4, 2012
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.

IlBevitorediLA (452) - ITALY - MAR 13, 2012
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.

eManu (445) - Kuala Lumpur & Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 10, 2010
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.
