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.

A: Pours thick dark black in color. Medium tan layer of tight bubbled head. Good carbonation for a high alcohol beer. Alcohol sheeting and alcohol feet.

S: Really deep espresso notes right away. There is booze there. That sweet rum brings the vanilla and oak notes. Dark fruit. Tobacco. Roast.

T: Dark roast. Dark chocolate. You get that sweet rum, bringing vanilla and oak. Lots of espresso. Tobacco for sure. Some leather. It's a deep beer. Finish is long. You start bringing more of that rum in finish.

M: Full bodied. Chewy.
