Rune (8042) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2010
375ml bottle from Ølbutikken, shared with KnutAlbert and Skinnyviking. Dense, tan coloured head slowly reduces to a few patches. Plain black body. Hoppy and peaty to the nose. Well blended taste of sweet hops with woody dryness plus the succulence from dark fruits and notes of grainy chocolate malts. Vinous, alright. To me this was the best one of the Black Hole series (hotel room, Sct Thomas, Copenhagen 09.05.2010).

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2010
Bottle. Black with medium tan head that sticks. Aroma is strong tannic bitter boozy, notes of chocolate malt, notes of berry fruits, roasted and woddy character overall. Taste is roasted chocolate and coffee tannins that hint at acidity, medium alcohol burn down throat. Not as sweet as most imperial stouts, even at room temperature. Woody quality. Sticky on lips and tongue, but not overly so. Special and interesting.

Skinnyviking (7059) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2010
Bottle. High and lasting creamy light brown head. Pitch black body. Cooffee caramel vineous wood aroma and flavor with low carbonation and a mild long aftertaste.

joergen (20714) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2010
Bottle at home. Pitch black coloured with a medium sized beige head. Roasted aroma of liquorice and hops with notes of coffee and vanilla beans. Roasted flavour of coffee, liquorice, hops and tar with notes of oak and red wine. Roasted and hoppy finish.

KnutAlbert (6078) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2010
Dark beer, fine milk chocolate head. A little sourness from the barrel. Sweet and sour, the wine barrel plays very nicely along with the ale. Red wine finish. I’d like more of this.

KimJohansen (10349) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2010
Near black with a large beige head. Sweet aroma with espresso, burned malt, dark chocolate, tannins, red whine and oak. The flavour came out sweet though balanced with tannins, oak, espresso, dark chocolate and vanilla. Plenty of hops came to live in this one cause the sweetness was balanced. Lovely.

Ungstrup (29277) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2010
Bottled. A very black beer with a red shine under a lazing brown head. The aroma has strong notes of roasted malt, caramel, wood, and chocolate. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt and wood as well as medium notes of chocolate and a bit of dextrose, leading to a very dry roasted and woody finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2010
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours an almost opaque black with a vague tint of red and a creamy beige head leaving laces. Aroma is discreetly tart and berry-like - the burned malts are surprisingly well masked. Solid body, burned malts and ashes with a slight tartness and a massive malt bitterness. 110510
