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.

Nickls (2454) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2010
Bottle. Jet black color with a dark tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma carries burnt roasted malts, lots of coffee, some sweet dark fruits, kiss of booze, but not really picking out the rum. While the rum treatment doesnt come through in the aroma, it certainly slides into the taste. Definite coffee presence, but not harsh. Quite well-rounded with a touch of sweetness, but still lots of savory characteristics that dominate. Slick, oily, and a little thick in the body that leaves a dry palate from the roast and warming on the back of the throat. This is definitely a big brew.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 25, 2010
Bottle shared at a BA/RB tasting [huge thanks to BelgBeerGeek for sending this bottle our way]... Poured black with a tan head. Lots of coffee here, more than the first three. A little too hot and unbalanced with the coffee and alcohol warmth. Molassess, chocolate, whiskey and oak flavors.

Fin (10076) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2010
Had this at Pre ZBF March 5th 2010, cheers Ian. Some camp coffee on nose and in the mouth, suggestion of chicory then maybe? Some sour coffee, a streaky bitterness, actually quite sweet and sour, good stuff. A7 A4 F8 P4 Ov15 3.8

Massive coffee aroma with just a hint of vanilla and a little woody-ness. Flavor is light-medium sweet chocolate cover espresso beans with a light astringency on the finish.

Bottled (BB 05/2015)
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.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Bottled. The aroma is big and smoky, with beefy notes of tobacco and well aged dark rum. Big and bold but not sweet, at least in the nose. The flavor hits up front with a touch of unfermented malt sugars, with a molasses-like rum body, and a roasty, chalky finish.
