Finally……! Black Hole is what Mikkeller is all about. Daring, vulgar and extreme. From the very beginning Mikkellers goal has been to push the limit and with this warming, intense imperial stout, a new chapter in the Danish beer history has been written. The high bitterness from the hops and the sweetness from the malt and alcohol, creates a good balance which makes Black Hole an explosion of nuances, but also leaves a feeling of a perfect and complex beer – in the heavyweight category.

19.11.12. Bottle. BBE has passed. Poured at room temperature (has not been in the fridge). No foam. Pitch black beer. Aroma is vanilla, dark sugar, some alcohol. Flavor is a noticeable hops, coffee, sweetness. Mouthfeel is smooth and sticky, a bit like soy sauce. Warming finish; sweet and bitter, long. Fantastic beer which I recommend to be sipped at room temperature.

Tap at Uiltje bar. Coffee, lots of roasted nuts, lots of red berries, some ash. Medium sweet with light tartness and coffee bitter finish. Nice hops throughout but the specific hop aromas get a bit lost. Medium to full bodied with slight thin feel. Nice.

UPDATED: FEB 21, 2015 What a fantastic beer this is! The Black Hole really acts like a black hole dedicated to absorb every bit of you soul. Super hoppy on the nose, a big smell of cut grass exploded during pouring. Then came the chocolate and a big amount of roasted malts. The mouthfeel is really interresting because of this fine acidity that balances the alcohol very well. Not too sweet, well balanced, rich but not heavy, medium to big body, this one is a sure bet for any fan of big stouts!

26.04.13:Tap 0.2 l, Radniční Restaurace a Pivovar, Jihlava, Czech Rep.
Czarne piwo o grubej i sztywnej, brązowej pianie oraz chmielowym aromacie. W smaku bogate, na początku słodowe, nawet lekko słodkawe, następnie kawowe, lekko palone a na finiszu z goryczką oraz mocno rozgrzewające gardło.
