Bottle. What a freaking mess this was. Black pour with soapy bubbles and not a lick of head. Flat as shit. Nose of coffee, soy sauce, vanilla, and more coffee. Taste follows the nose. I mixed a little with a BB winter warmer I was drinking at the time as well. Just to add some carbonation. It made it a little better.

Bottle. Oily black pour with a few soapy bubbles hanging around. The aroma had big roasted notes to the point where it is almost ashy, rum barrel, vanilla, honey and coffee. The flavor has a sweetness early from the honey and vanilla, molasses and rum barrel hit next followed by the coffee and a strong ash component. Although I know this is big, I’m a bit surprised that there is not more alcohol burn.

Pours black with a beige head. Sweet with some dryness. Aromas of dark chocolates, toasted malts and vanilla. Dark fruits. Also aromas of prunes. Lots of wood as it ages in the glass. Full bodied. Medium to soft carbonation.

Pours pitch blk w/ zero head. This is thin and lacks any carbonation. Very sweet, but if you don’t mind the rum imparts a pretty nice flavor. Unfortunately cherry coke has a nice flavor profile too, but I don’t want to drink it flat.

After really enjoying the regular Black Hole, I thought that a rum barrel-aged version would be interesting. It was not. It was hardly even drinkable. Super hot and sweet on the nose and then cloying and digusting on the palate. This is a small bottle, but I didn’t even make it all the way through. Drain pour.

Wow, I love the aroma, the coffee, vanilla, honey rum is all there. Pous a very dark brown colour with a small bubbly head which quickly dies down, tastes great, I tasted it out of the fridge then left it nearly an hour, and the taste got better! Very powerful taste with a lot going on, overall a great beer indeed!

Tmoney99 (10953) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a reddish black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted and produced fair lacing. Medium to heavy toasted malt, rum and chocolate aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Moderate to heavy complex toasted sweet rum flavor with a medium to heavy toasted sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Complex good brew.

Bottle from 2010. Pours black with slight head that I coaxed out. Nose is slight sour with boozy overtones. First sip is sweet almost sherry like but vanilla and burnt sugar. Finish is cherries with black strap molasses. Mouth feel was not bad for such a flat looking beer.
