Zwart bier met mooie fijne bruine schuimkraag. Geur: alcoholisch, geroosterde mout, zoet. Smaak: zoet, chocolade, alcoholisch, kandij. Volmondig en wat vettig. Weinig koolzuurprikkel. Afdronk: alcohol verwarmend, zoet en wat kleverig. Lekker.

750ml bottle (Overpriced Black Purgatory, Koht, Tallinn) (7:4:7-:4:13=3.5-)

Before the details for this particular one, here's the prototype for all the Black Damnations in the series: (7:4:7:4:13=3.5) Very rich toasty roast aroma, gentle level of burntness clear, and some spirity aspects reveal that it's barrel aged, but the variety of the wood of the barrel and the spirit itself isn't so clear. Black, and a tan head that forms little more than a ring. Taste very similar to the aroma, burntish, maybe a little ashy, but not astringent. Alcohol comes over a little more, doesn't hide its strength, but it's still a moderately pleasant sipper. Overall, slightly underwhelming.

Results: XVI < XV < XII < XVII < XVIII < XIX < XXIII < XIV < XXI < XIII=XX < XXIV < XXV

Specific variation: A bit more alcoholic in the nose, but not offensively so. Taste is more offensively alcoholic, strangely has some coconut aspects. Burntness, and the roast generally gets more raw over time. Only the coconut hints at the rum that was in the barrels, but at least this did leak its heritage - most didn't.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2017 Caña 8cl en De Struisse Brouwers. Kasteelstraat 50, 8640 Oostvleteren. Bélgica. 09..09..2017. (r30) (.... Eastwood, Fombe y ángel77 sesión...). Habana rum barrels. 13 vol. Color negro intenso con fina capa de espuma fina oscura. Sabores maltas tostadas con maderas frescas ligeras, especiadas. Cuerpo intenso suave, fino, sedoso acabando en amargo carbonizado duradero. Imprescindible, para repetir sin duda alguna.

750ml bottle @ Black Damnation tasting, Koht, Tallinn. Bottle #161/2000. Pours pitch black with a small head. Aroma of roasty malts, syrup, wood, oak, rum and toffee. Taste is smooth, slightly syrupy and sweet, hints of stingy wood, oak, rum, toffee, honey and warming alcohol. Finish is slightly boozy and syrupy with some wood and rum, toffee and leather.
