750ml bottle (Overpriced Black Purgatory, Koht, Tallinn) (7-:4:7+:4:15-=3.7-)
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: Does have more of the woody barrels, but they carry some clear spirit with them. Nice fuller roasted taste, but a gentle velvetty feel. Drinkability very good in this one, the sips are moreish. Finish is heavy with the dark roast, so full, very nice. Does get a little thinner later.

UPDATED: SEP 11, 2017 Caña 8cl en De Struisse Brouwers. Kasteelstraat 50, 8640 Oostvleteren. Bélgica. 09..09..2017. (r31). (.... Eastwood, Fombe y ángel77 sesión....). Calvados B. A. Color negro intenso con espuma beige oscuro poco persistente que desaparece al poco dejando pequeňa corona. Sabores frescos licorosos intensos. Clavados. Frescos licores y suave amargo final con ligeros tostados y quemados. Cuerpo intenso fino espeso y con gran sensación alcohólica desde el principio. 13 vol. Bastante buena para repetir sin duda alguna.
