BeerBunker (962) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2012
12.7oz bottle. Pours dark bornw with almost no head. Still plenty of carbonation, though. Aroma is of chocolate, malt, peat, soy sauce, and smoke. Taste is of chocolate, peat, and soy sauce. Definitely tastes like it was aged in cheap scotch barrels. Smokey, almost burnt lingering taste. Not good. Not at all. Tastes very boozy. Body is way thin. I do not like this.

tmrmwel (1632) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2015
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 (6883) - 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.

jeverszeuge (643) - GERMANY - JUL 29, 2014
# 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

fall_ep78 (44) - DENMARK - JUN 19, 2014
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.
