Shazam, these folks have done it again! Beer mastery extraordinaire. Poured a nice tan to light brown head that lasts with lots of lace. Color is pure unadulterated black- blacker than my soul. No highlights; just straightforward, pitch black. Black hole indeed. Aroma is malt, toffee, coffee, cocoa, rum, whiskey, dark ripe fruit. Flavor is like nose plus lots more: the rum really comes out and plays with the bittersweetness. Man what a wickedly lovely brew. Body is velvety, full, round, with perfect carbonation for this concoction. Quaffable, in spite of its barely concealed power. Finish is like flavor & slowwwly tapering . Perfection.

Black with a light brown head that starts out fluffy and ends creamy after settling. Huge chocolate, caramel, vanilla, spice, rum and oak aroma. The taste is big and in your face. Heavy palate between buttery and velvetty and slightly sticky. Earthy bready chocolate, rum, hints of raisin up front with caramel, vanilla, and rum tastes following and finishing with alcoholic warmth and bitter chocolate. Excellent complexity on this great sipping beer.

Bottle. 12.7 oz. Split with my Dad. Pours a stright solid obsidian black shiny with a wispy, slightly frothy beige head, Nice lacing down the side of my Tremens glass. Aroma of butter, cream, caramel, vanilla, honey, roasted almonds, sweet malt, oak, dry, spicy rum and lovely touches of hops and cocoa. Full bodied, but not agressive. Palate is insanely buttery, smooth, soft, and creamy. Boozy finish, but it balances out the sweetness. Seriously awesome Imperial stout.

dbklord (6) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 8, 2010 does not count
Not nearly as much sweetness as the non-barrel aged black hole. A lot of alcohol and molasses flavour.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2010
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours onyx w 1f brown head. Nose is oaky rum, dark malt, choc, peat, molassses, blackberry, port, hops. Tastes malty, with oaky, rum, spirit, molasses, hops, an overall earthy peaty quality, and a medium palate. Late heat, and the rum barrels seem to dry this one out and add a hoppy and strong cognac element late, making this one most suitable for a snifter.

BrooHa (121) - New York, USA - NOV 14, 2010
POurs like a dirty cola. A little "dusty" looking on the edges. Not bad lookin’ at all. Strong cocoa or dark choclate scent and some peat. The taste is WOW! Coffee like coffee ice cream sweetness up front, residual sweetness in the finish with a dry cocoa-like sensation. This is actually really, REALLY good! Must... buy ...more....

doublebock (556) - California, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Pours dark black with thin tan head. Aroma of oak and fig.Wonderfully complex body. Smooth dark chocolate maltiness followed by molasses, espresso and woody esters. Rum comes through at the end but is tempered by the coffee grains.

UPDATED: APR 17, 2011 Bottle into a tulip. Nice sweet aroma of honey and rum. Taste is fairly simular, heavy on the alcohol which I love. Reminds me a LOT of lost abbey deliverance. Great!
