gyllenbock (4088) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 23, 2012
Bottle. Black with a small tan head. Really a lot of whisky and peat both in the aroma and taste. This beer reminded a lot of a whisky from the Highlands. I like it a lot! Surprisingly "soft" body and mouthfeel. Loooooong aftertaste. Excellent stuff!

Davros (1806) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 20, 2012
Pours black with almost no head. Woody peat, sweet chocolate liqueur and soft spicy hops are present in the aroma, along with a fair whack of whisky. Similar woody and peaty flavours, along with roasted malt and some hot booze. No carbonation, really needs some. Seems a bit sharp at the moment.

gunnar (4867) - Sandnes, NORWAY - OCT 20, 2012
Bottle from Ølkonsortiet. Pours pitch black with a huge tanned head. Aroma of peat and ash. Taste is strong peated malts, roasted coffee, soy sauce, sweet, oily mouthfeel,extreme likeable aftertaste, whiskey playing in the backgound, light burning.

Cuso (3802) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 13, 2012
Bottle from beerplanet.eu. Almost black colored beer with minimal beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, peated whiskey. Taste, starts roasted malt, continues burned sugar, ash, overlapped with peated whiskey. Nice bitterness in alcoholic peated finish. Sipping beast. For me best of the barrel aged Black Hole beers I’ve tasted.

beerisgoodforu (992) - Nørresundby, DENMARK - AUG 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours a pitch black color with a tan head. Aroma is filled with smoke, peat, whiskey, oak and charred oak, I also get vanilla, lots of coffee, roasted malt, sweeter sugary notes, dark chocolate, a burnt note and liquorice. The flavor follows the nose with intense flavors of smoke, peat, whiskey, oak and the charred oak notes too, along with roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, sweet sugary notes, liquorice, burnt notes and dark chocolate. The body is full with an oily mouth feel. Overall a great version of Black Hole and probably my favorite since I am a sucker for a peated scotch.

Poured from a 375 ml bottle. Lots of smoked peat, chocolate, roasted malts, coconut, very rich. Nice beer.

DeputyAndy (632) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Draft are Capone’s. Disclaimer I like Scotch. Black pour, no nose. Thick viscous flavor with highly peaty flavors. Gives a nice herbal fruitiness when mixed with the chocolate. Really nice but I can understand if you don’t like Scotch.

PhillyCraft (2850) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2012
On tap at Capones, pours a deep mirror black with small off white head, light lacing. Aromas and flavors are very peaty, tons of char, chocolate, coffee, toasty malts, ashy grains, and smoked almonds. Pretty smooth even for the excessive peats.
