The Black Damnation series of beers was something my dad couldn’t stop telling me about how great they were. He brought me the Black Damnation IV – Coffee Club which is an Imperial Stout that has been aged for 6 months in old Rum barrels. I love rum so I was already sold, and this beer exceeded all my expectations. It 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. I was in heaven! 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. Maybe it’s time for a trip to Belgium!
Full Disclosure: this is not my photo as I have somehow lost my photos of this fantastic beer.
