hillfiiiiire (323) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Dark body with tan head and can actually pick up reddish tinges in beer. Aroma is all over the place. Woody charred character with licorice and the coffee and vanilla notes all topped off with distinct vinous nature. Sweet roasted taste with prominent feature of whatever red wine barrel they used. And definitely finishes in a dry wine type manner. Overall, really good, and I like what the wine barrel aging has managed to do for it.

MissouriBrent (122) - Missouri, USA - JUL 2, 2010
Smells spicy, almost peppery. Pours dark, dark brown with thick brown head. Tastes peppery and spicy too. Malty with alcoholic flavors. Dark malt flavors also come through. Hint of coffee-like flavor. Not sure Iím digging this. I get it, but Iím not loving it like some other Mikkeller beers. I hope the other Barrel-Aged Black Holes are better.

puzzl (3259) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Bottle shared by Mes. Complex aroma that is often at odds with itself, showing peanut butter, roast, charcoal, chalk, and slate. Full and cherry filled at the fore, with alcoholic vapors that heat the nose. Big, brutish flavor, a kick of intense oak leads into more chalk and aggressive hopping. Marshmallow and vanilla round out the finish. Only a hint of red wine made it through in this, perhaps Cabernet, if I had to guess.

jtclockwork (14930) - , New Jersey, USA - JUN 27, 2010
Pours black with tan head. Little lacing. Nose is roasted malts, vino, honey, vanilla bean and coffee. Taste is same, but vinous notes really overpower. Sweet imperial stout. Lots of red wine undertones throughout a very long finish.

keepersj12 (3062) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 15, 2010
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.
