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.

Leighton (20811) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2012 Bottle a Mes Tasting. Pours muddy black with a large, beige head. Espresso and mocha on the nose. Glavor is good and sweet, plenty of tar, chocolate syrup, coffee beans, light vanilla, booze, charred and roasted malts. Full in body with lively, chewy carbonation and lots of alcohol warmth. Roasty chocolate finish, lots of boozy tang, some coffee bitterness and some dark sugar. Really nice stuff. (4.4)

Bottle shared with Paul at the Hoppy Loft, Brussels. Pours deep and dark with a huge, brown foam head. Super thick head. Massive espresso nose. Sweet flavor with big coffee character. Lots of roast. Some chocolate syrup. Full bodied with medium, creamy carbonation. Cocoa and coffee dominate the finish. Awesome beer. (4.5)

Koelschtrinker (19743) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Herber und sehr stark malziger Antrunk mit deutlichen Kaffeenoten, die dazu noch sehr frisch wirken, was bei hnlichen Bieren meist nicht der Fall ist. Due Malzigkeit ist dabei unglaublich kompley, neben den dominierenden Kaffeenoten gibt es noch Pflaumenaromen neben weiteren vergorenen Fruchtnoten. Frisch, fruchtig, hchstzmalzig, komples. Noch ewig lange hat man das tiefe Malz auf der Zunge. Top! 12/15/12/14//14

Theydon_Bois (18930) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle at home - 15/09/12. Extreme dark brown verging on black the mocha head soon thins to absolutely nothing. Big espresso coffee nose, sweet roasted malts, more espresso and a little tirimisu. Tastes of espresso, sweet dark sugars, chocolate, coffee. The alcohol is very well disguised and integrated into the beer. Full bodied, a little soft carbonation with an espresso finish. Very smooth. Great coffee imperial stout, but I enjoyed the Mocha bomb more.

harrisoni (18226) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2010
On tap at Pre ZBF 2010 and bottle at Mes Bite Hat Moon tasting. Wow that is a lot of coffee on the aroma. Massive coffee. Very smooth in the mouth and in the swallow. Lots of coffee on the end too. Lovely. Slightly drier in the bottle and the coffee is more balanced. Exceptional, if you love coffee, you will love this beer.

Thanks Pade for buying this one for me. Opaque black color, big creamy brown head. Strong aroma of coffee and tobacco ash with alcohol notes. Fuller body than in BD III. Beer is very "dark": lots of roasted, coffeish flavors, tobacco ash, burnt malts. Finish has some sweetness, perhaps from rum? Otherwise not rum found here. More mellow than III but still quite alcoholic.
