Wonderful stuff. A delightful aroma of chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, red wine, what else, shit I donít know. Pours a beautiful black with a big tan head with a slight ed tint to it. Maybe I imagined that. Big bold flavor of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, red wine, and then a nice hop profile to finish. Boozy and dry finish. Great stuff, should be rated much higher.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2010
Bottle from ōlbutikken, Copenhagen. One of the barrel-series of this legendary imperial stout Black Hole. Pours a deep brown with an cappochino coloured head with a fluffy foamy attitude. The nose is not as vinoes as I had expected. Still the notes of bopth the red wine and the wooden barrels are clearly present. On top of those there are hint of cacao and a fine roastyness. The mouthfeel and thus the palate seems to me a bit thicker and creamyer than a regular Black Hole - Maybe I am mistaken. What I missed in the aroma of vinoes impressions im definately gets in the taste. The red wine is absolutely present along with the wooden notes. There are a pretty up front bitterness and a hooppy feeling playing on the dark side.Bitter roasty malt notes and chocolate with a fine sourness from the barrelaging. A nice stout that is a bit different from other good stouts.

patrickfannon (1235) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Bottle. 12.7 oz. Pours solid black with a moderate, slightly merlot head. Aroma of freshly poured merlot wine, coffee, dark chocolate, honey, vanilla, oak, cream, and bitter roast. Full bodied with a tart, tangy, vinious palate. Finishes with an awesome warming in the throat and through the belly. Cool Imperial stout. Definitely worth a taste for adventerous drinkers.

smith4498 (2980) - Miami, Florida, USA - JUN 14, 2010
Bottle at Maltzillas World Cup 2010 tasting. Pours black with brown head. Aromas of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, coffee and a slight hint of red wine. I get a little more red wine taste than aroma. Flavors of roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, coffee and wood. Full body with minimal carbonation. Good, but I think I prefer the regular Black Hole. Thanks Ryan.

JAXSON (526) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Bottle, pours black with a creamy mocha head. Nose is big on red berries and wine barrel. Not much in the way of malt, fruit is so prominent here. Roasty, charred in the mouth, dark chocolate dust, some coffee beans. Becomes fruity and bitter in the finish, a bit clashing. Thinner body than I expected. Decent, and a fun idea, but the finish on the is pretty ugly and Iím just not digging this one.

Bottled. Pitch black colour, brown head. Aroma is quite spiced, mild alcohol, some toasted and ashy notes as well. Also some liquorice. Flavour is liquorice, salted liquorice, wood, some toasted notes as well as spices. Also some fruityness and a bit acidic notes. Very pleasant actually.

thetomG (246) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2010
Pours a very nice deep dark brown with just a slight amount of foamy head. Aroma is malty with some strong notes of alcohol coming through with just a hint of red wine. Taste is primarily STRONG booze with some bitterness from the hops but the alcohol burn is a bit overpowering with just a shadow of the other elements you smell. itís good, but the booze is a bit overpowering. Its good and Iím glad I tried it, but I donít think Iíll be seeking this one out again... just not my ideal flavors.
