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.

yngwie (16878) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 24, 2012
Bottle, courtesy of Meilby. A dark brown head, creamy and fingerthick forms over an oily jet black body. The aroma has a touch of alcohol, booze I guess, but in general I think its too weak. Coffee dominates, but Id like more of it. Much more actually, and Im certainly not a coffee drinker. The flavor is more interesting, at least the coffee is more evident, and theres also some booze and dark chocolate. Its full-bodied and oily on the palate, super soft. Lasting coffee finish with some booze. Certainly a nice one, but Im not sure the barrel aging did the beer good. 120324

mcberko (16597) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 7, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2012 11.2 oz. bottle, pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma of dark roasted espresso beans, burnt / roasted malt, and tar - very darkly roasted. First sip reveals an intensely flavourful and sticky, syrupy impie, with notes of caramel, dark roasted espresso, syrup, berries, rum and vanilla. Palate is extremely viscous and sticky, with the rum barrels ending off. Very complex and rum-dominant, though bordering on too rich. Excellent.

A: The pour is black, no doubt about it, with a nice dark brown head to go with it. Ominous indeed. S: The coffee does come through nicely along with some more subtle tones of chocolate and vanilla. A solid roast and a surprising spiciness, not quite like chili peppers, but close enough. Perhaps thats the rum... T: Again, plenty of coffee, roast, and vanilla. The spice is more mild, but the oak character is much more pronounced and gives the beer a mild astringency. M: Not quite as full bodied as I would have expected, but a pleasing smooth carbonation. D: The Black Damnation series offers up a bunch of interesting/different beers, but I cant say Ive been totally amazed by any of them. Still, this one was good.

bhensonb (14881) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 26, 2010
Bottle from Bier Temple in Brussels. Pours black with a low dark tan head. Aroma is coffee plus oak? So thick its almost chewy. Flavor is coffee/bourbon/rum/vanilla? And other things I dont know. Its definitely barrel aged; it seems astringent. Its quite good. Its complex. Think Im finally getting rum in the finish.
