jtclockwork (14718) - , New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2010
Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Nose of chocolate, oak, vanilla, scotch, coffee and bean. Taste is similar, but the scotch really comes in strong on the back end. Lots of burn and peat. Vanilla, coffee and chocolate are overpowered.

topherh (1923) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Pours nearly black with a thin tan head. Aroma of roast malt, peaty smoke, and alcohol. Flavor is much of the same with the addition of some malty sweetness and a little chocolate.

TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 16, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2011 12.7 oz bottle. Dark brown with lacy tan foam. Nose is dominated by funky burnt peat and scotch; hints of caramel and dark chocolate. Medium body with a tang. Taste is charred wood, molasses, scotch and sweetened coffee. Finishes with peat and ash tray. Marginally enjoyable.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2010
Bottle. Opque black of course with a small thick and lasting tan-coloured head. Big aroma of smoke, peat, salty licorice, sea-salt, iodine, wood and burnt malts. Full-bodied with strong notes of smoke, sea-salt, seaweed, licorice, black pepper, burnt malts, coffee and pine somewhere. LOng peppery, smokey and salty finish of seaweed, black coffee and mild alcohol. I love Islay whiskeys, then fore I love this beer.

Ibrew2or3 (8082) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Big thanks to Blazer06 for these. Pours pitch black with dark brown head. The aroma has full up blunt unapologetic band aid and peat to go along with smoother notes of scotch whiskey booze and chocolate in the background. The taste has rubbery blubbery band aid mixed with peat, chocolate and dark roasted malts.

bottle. for such a great base beer - I’m really disappointed with this one. I’m really not liking this aroma - the peat is way too intense for me - lots of dirty earth in here... some tobacco, dark coffee and an overall stank. solid black pour with a 1/4" tan head which falls to a thin lacing. medium to thick body with more peat and an overall wet forest feel. deep coffee finish with more swamp notes... this is truly undrinkable. drain pour for me.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Probaly the most destinctive in the series. heavy scotch whiskey aroma,heavy smoke and wood aspects one of the sharpest alcohols I have ever smelled in a beer. Whiskey ,and wood come through big time in the taste,rye,smoke, over ripe tobacco, tastes like it might be 12-15% ABV extremely interesting

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - AUG 12, 2010
375ml bottle -

Aroma - wow, where to start with this one. Huge, fat aromas of tobacco, leather, iodine, saltwater, whiskey, black licorice, and wet asphalt. Nothing tiny about this.

Apperance - deep black body, initial creamy tan head but quickly diminished.

Taste - very different flavor that I had expected. Lots of bitter smoke, iodine, chocolate, vanilla, old coffee, wet earth (more asphalt), peat and leather.

Palate - medium bodied, pretty dry for an impy with a medium finish

Overall - very nice. I appreciate the attempt and the alcohol is very well hidden (13%...where?).

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 11, 2010
375ml. Pitch black with small tan head. Aroma has lots of peat smokiness, light whiskey sweetness, chocolate malt, and that patented Black Hole musky leather character. Taste is smokey chocolate malt that goes roasted bitter in finish. Booze is prevalent all over but smooth all the way down.

375ml Bottle: Strong aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, whiskey, peat, oak, smoke, and iodine. Poured pitch black in color with a small, creamy, brown head that diminished but lasted throughout. Opaque. Not sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium to heavily sweet. Tastes of tons of peat, roasted malt, slight whiskey, wood, smoke, and a hint of chocolate. Medium to full body. Slick, smooth texture. Soft carbonation. Peat, roasted malt, smoke, and wood finish lasts a long time.
