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.

UPDATED: OCT 14, 2015 Thanks to KBL at Osaka bottle share for the chance to try this. It was very dark with a swirling low tan head, the deep rich aroma with a taste that was full and rich, notes of oak, chocolate, coffee, vanilla. Really smooth an warming, the alcohol was noticeable but more warming in the throat than in the flavour. Delicious.

Dark brown color, almost black, with a big brown head. Overwhelming aroma with hints of coffee and chocolate. These aromas return in the taste, accompagnied by a mixture of vanilla and candy Sugar. The aging on rum barrels doesnt go unnoticed and elevate the beer to a sublime taste experience. Superb beer!!

BenH (3437) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 20, 2015
Bottle, gusher. Dark brown with tan head. Aroma of dried fruit, caramel, yeast, tiny hint of coffee. Taste is similar, mostly dried fruit and a touch of coffee. Quite disappointing, tastes like a standard Belgian Strong
