COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Black Damnation series is a dark twist of Urbans 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.

Bottle at a tasting at Maxs for Sams visit. Pours a deep dark black with a thin tan head. Coffee, toast, roast, good amount of chocolate. Toast, roast, lots of warm cocoa, brownies. Toasty and full of roast, a light warmth on the finish. Yummy.

Pour out of bottle, thanks a ton Tim! Dark brownish black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of wet coffee grounds, chocolate, toffee, hints of caramel, slight acidity as well. Taste is a nice mix of wet coffee, green pepper, hints of chocolate and sweet caramel malts, hints of an acidic note, some tobacco notes, slight roast, pretty acidic, bitter and dry finish. Dont really get any rum, but its interesting.

tom10101 (3672) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2012
Bottle 330 ml. Black with a medium dark (!) brown head and superb lacing. Aroma of old coffee, rum, alcohol and bitter-sweet chocolate. Taste is bitter-sweet chocolate, roasted coffee, rum, alcohol and some bitterness. Mouthfeel is creamy and acidic. Full body and harsh alcohol presence. Interesting imperial stout but nothing amazing in this one. Good balance and complexity, but had more expectation for a BA struise beer.

RasmusOtt (1488) - Aarhus, DENMARK - NOV 4, 2012
Pours black with a nice brown head. Aroma of earthy coffee, vanilla, dark roasted malts, darker fruits, cocoa powder and some sharp alcohol in the back. Taste is the same with some more roasted bitterness, wood, weak salty and with a pretty boozy feel.

Pours very, very dark brown with minimal brown head. Aroma is earthy coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, rye. Tastes of hard roasted coffee beans, roasted malt, wood, salt, rum, alcohol and a slight burning sensation. Medium+ bodied, oily, heavy sweet with long duration, a minuscule acidic tone and finishes burnt bitter.

BOLTZ7555 (2939) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 22, 2013
Squid ink pour with a small latte head. Loads of dark roasted coffee, green pepper, raisin, and a bit of alcohol. Chewy and coating mouthfeel. Just not what I was looking for.

jaghana (4469) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle 75cl, a dark beer with medium brown head, got long gushing with 13 !! Nose is on wood and cherries as for an oude bruin with roasted notes. Aroma is sweet, very roasted, got the typical wood and oude bruin touch, donno if this is normal for it. Anyway bit disappointed about whole complexity, yes too expensive for what it is.
