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

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2010
A Sim rate (bottle from Olbutikken): Aroma’s a meaty imperial stout alcohol hit. There’s some rich coconut, almond, macadamia & rich dark chocolate. The rum really shines through - no doubt bringing out those nutty aromas. There’s also a real sweetness to it. It’s dark fruits and sugar plum. Appearance : well, I hardly need to mention this as it’s exactly what you’d 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. It’s got a mammoth alcoholic finish which I can’t decide if I love or not. It’s one hell of a beer, that’s for sure. But I would recommend sharing it with friends!

beernbourbon (1372) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAY 28, 2010
Bottle. Pour is very crisp black with a medium deep brown head that reduces down to a thin but dense layer of bubble-studded foam. Aroma is fairly reminiscent of the base beer with lots of roasted malt, coffee, milk chocolate, light ash, light molasses, and light alcohol. Maybe a touch of tartness as well. Flavor is also full of roasted malt, coffee, booze, and distant sweetness. The finish is a bit ashy with notes of espresso. This is a bit hotter than I expected it to be. Certainly a notable rum presence here. As i continue to sip, the alcohol burn mellows and more roasted malt and ash come through. The subtle tartness of the base beer is not very detectable. The flavor evolves a lot as the beer warms and breathes. You really need more than 1 or 2 sips to get the full flavor spectrum this beer has to offer. I liked it more with every sip.
