UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012
Name: Black Hole, Bourbon
Date: July 25, 2012
Mode: bottle
Source: Green’s
Vintage: 2010
Score: 3.6
Aroma: rich bourbon aroma, light roasted malts, touch of fruityness
Flavor: rich roasted flavor, bourbon tries to add balance but the roasted malt is too much, almost astrengent, sweet vanilla helps
Overall: either the extra age or the earlier batch does not match up to the 2012 vintage

gyllenbock (5013) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2012
Bottle. Black with a minimal tan head. Nice, sweet aroma of licorice, roasted malt, coffee, alcohol and oak. The taste was not as heavy as expected. Soy, oak, licorice, coffee and alcohol. I kept the bottle in the cellar for about a year, I think that this beer will improve with further aging.

SirLimpsalot (2355) - SWEDEN - MAY 7, 2012
Fantastisk doft. Stor doft av stark tung kaffe. Smaken lite lättare och eftersmaken rent av lite tunn. Men i det store hela en mycket bra öl med en trevlig och inte för stor fatkaraktär. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

laiti (5954) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 30, 2012
37,5 cl bottle, BBE 18.03.2014, bottled 18.03.2010
Blind tasting @ lusikka
Rather thin aroma with vanilla, cocoa and some alcohol. Flavour is slightly sweet with lots of soy sauce and alcohol. Also some burnt malt and ash. Too much soy and alcohol here. My guess was Mikkeller Black. After I knew what this was, I could observe some peat in the flavour.

olio (6495) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 30, 2012
375 ml bottle @ lusikkas’ blind tasting. BBE 18.03.2014.
Pours pitch black color with minimal beige head on the sides. Aroma of vanilla, peat, alcohol, wood, malts, soy and some oat. Flavor of dark chocolate, alcohol, vanilla, soy, cocoa and mild dark berries. Way too strong alcohol burn dominates the flavor.
