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 III was made with Black Albert that aged for 3 months on Paul Melia’s (Mes) favorite Whisky, the "Caol Ila’s Distillers Version 1995".

Tasted on 1/26/12 from a 330mL bottle purchased from the Struise Webshop. Pours absolutely pitch black, with a very thick brown head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is super dark and roasted coffee and dark chocolate with some molasses, and a very dry and peaty Islay Scotch aroma. The flavor is dark chocolate and molasses up front, moving to the more roasted notes of coffee, and the oaky and smokey peated Islay Scotch. The body is massive with just lighter than average carbonation and a very long bitter roasted coffee and smokey Isaly Scotch finish.

On tap at VCBF17, Belgium. Nose is slightly peated whiskey, roasted malt. Body is black, head is very small, brownish, creamy, mostly diminishing, good lacing. Aroma is peated, whiskey, old wood, dust. Light sweet, heavy bitter. Finish is long lasting roasty medium to heavy bitter, medium alcohol warmth. Full body, oily texture, nearly flat carbonation. Quite heavy, strong flavor, very tasty, great one.

Great beer. Roasted malt was heavy with hops at the finish. Sweetness from oak with chocolate and whisky. Smooth and heavy, dark as night.

750ml Bottle at home, split with the Beast, 3rd March 17. Pours black, thick, little head, sticks to the glass. Aroma is heady, liquorice, coffee, peat, liquor, wood. Taste is liquorice, sweet, peat, whiskey, barrel, wood, complex, drinks so smoothly, would not know this is 13%. Delicious impy, maybe one of the best in the series for me.

Heerlijk donkerzwart bier met bijna geen schuimkraag. Koffie, tabak, leer, beetje rook, pure chocolade. Dik vol van smaak met een lichte peated afdronk. Een sipper. Genieten met hoofdletter G.

16 & 17/09/2016 @home - 75cl bottle from a trade with Jurgen Simoen. Thick black colour with nice brown head leaving a nice thick lacing, even a day after opening the bottle. Nose is dark malts, light peat. Taste is first dark malts, heavy roast, some sweetness, vanilla, chocolate, some peat. Very complex but drinking nicely. Wow!

mariuspoenari (2637) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2016
Sampled at Klooster. Pitch black with no head. Notes of liquor, whiskey, scotch, cherries, cocoa, chocolate. Medium to full body, soft mouthfeel.
