Manslow (756) - Warsaw, POLAND - DEC 5, 2015
Butelka 0,375l Bardzo ciemny kolor, piana solidna. Aromat niebiański składa się z kawy, czekolady, suszonych owoców z przewagą śliwek i palonych słodów. Smak suszonych owoców ,kawy i czekolady wszystko to przykrywa potężny alkohol, który jest mocno ukryty i tylko po spłynięciu do żołądka czuć jego rozgrzewającą moc. Słodycz cały czas wyczuwalna razem z goryczką. Piwo genialne.

willisread (1580) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 2, 2015
Small glass shared at Mikkeller Tokyo. Pitch black with a tiny bit of brown head that dissipates fairly quickly. Coffee, dark chocolate, prune, figs and raisin on the nose. Body is lighter than expected for the abv, with a nice dry, oaky character. As big as this beer is, the balance is there, especially if you let it sit for an hour or 2. Sweet on the palate with some roasted bitterness alongside some bourbon-like alcohol notes. Coats the palate. The finish lasts days, coating the throat with chocolate, dark fruit and roasted coffee with a nice warming quality. A really well-done beer that is surprisingly drinkable with friends.

anstei (644) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 1, 2015
Tap at Erzbierschof Zurich. Why is this one called Black and not Black Hole? It definitely is a black hole for me. Mikkeller, this is too much. (Roast aroma of coffee, yet still lots of hops, then a similar sourness, but very, very bitter. Black Hole is better.)

beechner224 (981) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours black with a ran head. Aroma is burnt coffee. Taste is kick you in the mouth bitter coffee. Like your chewing on coffee grounds, the bitterness is overwhelming. After three sips I feel like I need to brush my teeth, this one needs help.

madelfonatree (302) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2015
Purchased in July 2015 enjoyed November 13, 2015 in a MadTree tulip/snifter. Look - Pours brown, not black. Finger of frothy tan head (fine to large bubbled). Little lacing. Settles to a ring. Smell - Chocolate. Coffee. Char. Toffee. Alcohol. Taste - Chocolate masks booze well. First sip was spicy. Warmth improves it. Bubblegum on end. Feel - Chewy. Thick. Stings tongue. Burns. Overall - Finishing this by yourself is a task. Time to go to bed.

lukin (548) - Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2015
bottle. dark black pour, massive tan head. Sharp roasty smoke and coffee. Whisky and alcohol, very strong and boozy. Bit of a weird bitter aftertaste. Its a flavour bomb, there is just too much going on here to be a truly enjoyable beer.
