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.

Ferris (13493) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 3, 2013
Bottle - Tons of dark chocolate and a hint of coffee. Jet black with a rich brown head. Bitter chocolate, coffee and some vanilla. Body is pretty thing with a bit of astringent finish. I think that is the rum. Interesting, but with so many good barrel coffee beers not good enough.

Scopey (13309) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 6, 2012
Bottle at Delirium Hoppy Loft, Brussels. It pours jet black, with a thin dark tan head. The nose is big intense espresso coffee, chocolate, charcoal and roasted notes. The taste is full of espresso coffee, blackcurrant, blueberry, molasses, ash, roasted malt, coconut and dark chocolate. Full body, fine carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Its good, but the intense coffee and sticky sweetness makes it challenging to drink in any great quantity.
