On tap at Rattle n Hum in NYC. Black and oily with a small tan head that quickly fades to oblivion.
Heavy cream, dark chocolates, espresso, black licorice, leather, vanilla, burnt caramel and more dark fruit aromas.
Thick, rich, viscous, creamy and decadent. Layers of coffee, espresso, mocha, machiato flavors. Roasty in the middle, burnt and bitter coffe grinds on the finish. Black licorice abound with currant only a step behind. Leather, vanilla, old dates, caramel and then more bitter sweet coffee.
Serving type: on-tap

Inky black with a small, rich and creamy tan head. Good head retention. Very nice.
Intense coffee aroma. Charry roast and lovely tobacco aroma. Deep and complex bitter chocolate. Alcohol. So complex and so good.
This is why I love beer. Intense. Big tobacco and roast flavour. Raw coffee. Touches of oaken whisky notes probably associated with the alcohol flavours. Rich espresso. Light sweetness that gets sucked away quickly. Wow.
Full body with moderate carbonation. Thick and creamy. Motor oil.
A big rich stout. Among the best beers out there and a truly fine creation. I wish I had more.

From my tasting notes: The Black Damnation IV poured a deep opaque black with a strong chocolate and coffee aroma. The taste was sublime. It had a very deep and smooth coffee and chocolate flavor with hints of vanilla almost like drinking chocolate syrup. The very high alcohol was almost imperceptible as I savored every sip. The only downside is I may never get to try this one again as you cannot get it in Texas.
