First, I must disclose that I love Scotch. And, I really love beer. Love coffee, honey and vanilla, too. This Black Hole was much sweeter than I anticipated, but still surpassed expectations. Smokey, okey doke. The kick is smooth, but be ready. Not your mamma’s Belgium. The strong malt roasty flavor blends well with the coffee notes. Nice, earthy beer.

Bottle, enjoyed 3,5 years after bottling. Pours pitch black, with a creamy brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, with cocoa, peated islay whisky and coffee, as well as oak, heather, tannins and tobacco. Full body with creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet roasted malts, with cocoa, oak barrels, liquorice and leather as well as coffee, earth, heather and peat whisky with a sting of alcohol. Lingering sweet malts and peat in the finish.

nimbleprop (6654) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 20, 2014
375ml bottle pours a murky black with some clumpy brown head. Nose... well, here we go, loads of rubber band, almost a bit of fresh tire too (not a compliment), heavy char, a little salty too - like a camp fire of driftwood. Flavor has some malt sweetness but it’s way too smokey, way to salty and too sweet. Finish is harsh. Drain pour.

# 3445 ersma: eine weitere sonder-edition des black holes. zum öffnen des korkens hab ich ne wapuza gebraucht, so fest saß der. viel co2 ist da auch nicht um zu helfen. pechschwarz, schaumbefreit und sehr co2-arm. der geruch ist intensiv röstmalzig mit viel lakritz und toffe, etwas schoko ist auch dabei. dazu süßliche obertöne - whiskeyfass?
der antrunk ist schwer, ölig und nahezu co2-befreit. intensiv röstmalzig, auch hier viel lakritz und schoko, kaffenoten und vanille. die süßlichen aromen des whiskeyfassen sind vorhanden. die mitte wird noch ausgeprägter süßlich, später kommt etwas hopfenherbe hinzu. bis in den späten abgang ist der geschmack geprägt von schoko, lakritz und vanille. die flasche ist sehr ansehnlich. fazit: mit etwas mehr co2 wäre das referenzklasse. so "nur" unbedingt probierenswert. 9,13,12,13,14,13 - 12,50

Black hole serien er virkelig en fantastisk flok øl og den her er ingen undtagelse. Tørvet whisky og eg dominerer sammen med en vanilje præget sødme. Det sluttes af med et svagt alkoholspsek dækket ind i en passende olieret fylde.

2011 bottle from the porter. Pours an opaque dark brown with tan colored head. Aroma of nice peat and coffee. Taste is amazing, with a nice scotch initial flavor that is accompanied by some coffee and a hint of vanilla.

angel77 (1916) - oviedo, SPAIN - APR 20, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl, con cierre de corcho y alambre. en llamas el 20-04-2014. En el momento. De 2d2dspuma. Con fecha de consumo para 18-03-2014. Color negro intenso con muy poca espuma bastante oscura y que desaparece rápidamente reduciéndose solamente a pequeño anillo de grandes burbujas.....Aromas maltosos y ligeramente turbosos con toques de maderas quemadas y algo de chocolate, cacao y café cuando calienta.....Cuerpo medio a fuerte predominando una gran sensación alcohólica de licor, siendo bastante fácil de beber, nada pastosa y poco densa, muy poca presencia de gas, por no decir nada. 13.1 Vol maravillosos. ....Sabores de maltas Tostadas y quemadas, con grandes dosis de maderas quemadas empapadas en whiskey. Sensaciones turbosas y secas algo de chocolate, cacao y café torrefacto. Alucinante cerveza, inmensos increíbles sabores quemados y gran sensación y aspecto de licor con gran regusto de maderas y maltas quemadas o mas bien carbonizadas, para repetir, imprescindible.
