Dishy beer for anyone eager to get a real rich taste of a peaty, Islay-like dram along with a proper stout. Almost full score.

Versiů fumada i lleugerament salada de la sŤrie Black Hole. Ideal per a postres i puro. Sense arribar a la extrema complexitat de la Black Islay es tracta díuna cervesa molt interessant. Per a paladars exigents i avanÁats.

Cuso (4417) - 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 Iíve tasted.

bottle. in celebration of completely paying off my vehicle today. aged in scotch whiskey barrels. same thick black, viscous pour under a medium sized, creamy brown head like the others. aroma of chocolate, roast, caramel, fresh wood, inside of a department store(maybe Kohlís, J.C. Penny?) clean peat. flavor is very peaty. not really a smoked peat though...just clean. musty. white wood. i thought it would be hard to outdo the rum, but i like this better. it drinks with an immaculate smoothness and less boozy notes.

Cybercat (3276) - Georgia, USA - SEP 27, 2011
Rich, nose-filling aroma is smoky with a strong tone of fine whisky and woody and licorice notes. It pours a beautiful opaque sable, just one red tomcat whisker above black with a rather thick and fine-bubbled chocolate-brown head. Seriously smoky flavor makes one feel as though one is drinking liquid charcoal that has chocolate, coffee, licorice and quality whisky notes. Body isnít just full - itís zaftig, and has a good firm tingle to it. Finish is quite smoky and fizzy, with a subtle whisky bite.

BVery (6096) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2013 Bottle. Dark brown pour with an awesome frothy tan head. Nose is peat, smoke, and whiskey. Full palate. Taste is smokey peat, some booze heat, and a bit of hop but it finishes not too astringent. Love this.

Embrouille (2827) - SWITZERLAND - FEB 6, 2013
Bottled 375ml. Pitch black with no head at all. Leather, vanilla, peat and smoke are most present in the nose. Full bodied. No carbonation. Extremely smooth. Incredibly delicious- this is a great version of the Black Hole. Underrated in my opinion.
