Beautiful black as night with a big lacing tan head. Aroma of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt. Taste is more complex with chocolate dominating then comes licorice, coffee, vanilla, the rum. Quite boozy as it warms with a nice warming on the throat. The finish is quite dry for the style. Very nice indeed.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a small cappuccino colored head. Aromas of coffee with sugar, hints of vanilla, chocolate cookies, alcohol, dried fruit and caramel. Flavors of roasted malt, syrup, caramel, warming alcohol and wood. Great beer.

Foxy brown-greige head over black beer. Coffee, spirit, some wood, sweetish-sourish aroma, rainwater. Again the sweet-sour stoutflavour, with a slight burnt bitterness, expecially retronasal. Remarkably little hops traceable in this version. Quite slick, if less viscous than the other versions tasted. Clear alcoholburn after swallowing, well-carbonated. The rum, on one had, lends some sweetness, and hence a good balance. OTOH, it lacks complexity compared to other versions as the peated whiskey.

I love Mikkeller. Mikkel is an artist and a visionary and is responsible for some of the finest beers I have ever had. That said, I think this beer sucks. A very promising aroma of espresso, cocoa and light vanilla gives way to a flavor that I found largely unpleasant. Absolutely bone dry with the slightly burnt character I found in the original Black Hole amplified to charred coffee beans. A bit of woodiness on the finish does nothing to round out the flavor, leaving a harsh, lingering bitterness.

bottle. black with a large, creamy, brown head. aroma of chocolate chip cookies, caramel, roast, hints of sweet rum from a distance. flavor has a pleasantly sweet rummy finish. lots of chocolate, caramel, cookie and toasted bread. very warm in the finish. full body. the rum flavor adds a nice touch to this classic.

Bottle from 5 points. Better than the wine version but not as good as the original or bb versions. Good, but not great.

A Sim rate (bottle from Olbutikken): Aromaís a meaty imperial stout alcohol hit. Thereís some rich coconut, almond, macadamia & rich dark chocolate. The rum really shines through - no doubt bringing out those nutty aromas. Thereís also a real sweetness to it. Itís dark fruits and sugar plum. Appearance : well, I hardly need to mention this as itís exactly what youíd expect. Pitch black with a biege head and lace. Flavour is an absolutely epic mix of dark chocolate, sweet coconut and sheer alcohol. Tasty and overwhelming all at once. Itís got a mammoth alcoholic finish which I canít decide if I love or not. Itís one hell of a beer, thatís for sure. But I would recommend sharing it with friends!
