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.

adnielsen (9247) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Bottle @ Delirium Brussels. Deep black appearance with a bubby, dark brown head and nice lacing. Slightly charred, somewhat roasty dark chocolate malty, somewhat acidic fruity (I guess the remnants of the coffee), smooth aroma. Anise, rich dark cocoa, vanilla, mild, smooth coffee, slightly acidic, delicious vanilla/chocolate flavor. No note of booze and incredibly smooth but unfortunately the coffee is mostly gone.

hopscotch (9215) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 19, 2010
Bottle… Pours midnight black with a mid-sized, light brown head. Fantastic retention. The nose offers charred wood and acrid espresso grounds with whispers of cayenne and chili peppers. Full-bodied and slick with medium carbonation. The flavor suggests mild acidity, heavily roasted black and chocolate malt sweetness and carbonaceous bitterness. Burnt, bitter, lightly tangy finish. Thanks go out to darkguardian for sharing this one with the Delray Beach gang!
