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 (2758) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 15, 2010
Wonderful stuff. A delightful aroma of chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, red wine, what else, shit I don’t 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 Ølbutikken, 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 (1241) - 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 (3066) - 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.
