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.

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

cards04 (2720) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JUL 14, 2015
Pours inky thick black. Big coffee aromas. Cream too. A bit of booze. Crazy good. Flavours are big coffee and sweet cream, sugar, dark chocolate. Tangy at the end. This is a flavour bomb. Almost no alcohol detected. Phenomenal.
