Prokroustis (668) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - NOV 2, 2011
Black body, no head. Sweet aroma of licorice, coffee, alcohol, roasted malts. Syrupy palate with no carbonation. Wood, vanilla, ash, rum, some coffee in the flavour. Great.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 28, 2011
bottle... inky shiny black, light tan head is gone fast... the aroma is a bit rough, reminds me of a scotch ba beer, black sharpie, lots of peat, barrel, alcohol... the taste is a hot mess, sweet liquor, rum, burnt ash... skip this one

77ships (3313) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 28, 2011
37.5 cl. bottle@home: lighter shade of black, little to no tanned head, heavy liquorice, toasted malts, spices, heavy oak, 95 % black chocolate, very heavy aftertaste, way heavier than the initial taste, very bitter coffee especially in the aftertaste, alcohol, ash, booze, heavy rum, barrel aging is very heavy on this, scorched wood, hint of vanilla, wow the barrel aging is harsh on this especially coming from the red & white wine versions, very raw (new 2011 version)

thirdeye11 (5393) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 2, 2011
(375ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) near black pour, dark tan film of head. Nose of honey, vanilla, chocolate and rum. Smells so decadent. Taste is ashy, vanilla, rum, honey and some alcohol. Complex taste, with a bit of umami as well. Nice beer, but it’s still black hole.

GothGargoyle (945) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 25, 2011
Pours black with a small chocolate brown head. Aroma is chocolate and rum. Taste is rum, oak, chocolate and a touch of dark fruit. The rum dominates just a little too much.

JoePeesie (853) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2011
pours a deep black with a tan head. The nose and taste is of rum, chocolate, dark fruits, and malt. Nice choice using rum barrels with this. It is a sweet woody well balanced BA IS.

fiulijn (13533) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2011
RBESG 2010, Grand Tasting, bottle
Black color; creamy head. Easy Imperial Stout, with light coffee flavor, and some alcohol perception (too high). Unbalanced.

finol (1978) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 21, 2011
Bottle at Monks Porterhouse. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma of chocolate, rum and alcohol. Taste of liqour filled chcolate. Good but rather "simple" and straight forward.

hirigalzkar (2114) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle. This is a lot milder than the original version of the Black Hole. The rum barrels makes it very much sweeter. It’s also very smooth and round. Good dessert beer.
