Really nice beer. I am not a big fan of the regular black hole but the rum barrel is a great device. Aroma is vanilla, honey, dark fruit, and choc. Appearance in black with a tan head. Taste is fruity, honey, a little rum, and coffee on the back end. Palate is nice and creamy.

Near black color with a tall, lasting rich tan head. Sweet coffee and vanilla scents. I seem to be thinking about tiramisu. Hints of alcohol, which remind me of a few flammable liquids I have smelled in my time. Just a bit too overpowering. As the head settles, there is a really nice sheet of lace. Starts with coconut, rum, sweet espresso, and light tropical fruit. Bitterness builds as it slides over the tongue. Has a fairly light feel, with a touch of acid. A little hot now, I can see this one really being a mellow giant in a year or better. Finish has some burnt malt and ash qualities. Definitely a sipping brew. This would handle the richest, heartiest meat or dessert. While fairly sweet, not as much as I envisioned. 2/10

ContemplateBeer (1878) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - APR 22, 2015
Bottle best by 2014, so maybe 2011? Another beer I would have never bought on my own, courtesy of my friend Jason. Aroma: Maple syrup liqueur. Super sweet and boozy. Appearance:Garnet black with a bubbly mocha skin that quickly fades. Flavor: Super sweet and boozy maple syrup liqueur. Palate: Light body, slick texture, flat carbonation, long finish. Overall: Glad I didn’t pay for this. My wife said she would give her tick a zero if she were allowed.

Lighter taste. Aged in the cellar a few years. Rum in finish with coffee. Honey though preserves did’t add to the ageing taste.

Pours tar black with no head. Aroma of rum, vanilla, molasses, and coffee. Licorice, molasses, vanilla flavor with lots of rum at the back end. Creamy body. Very nice beer.

"Another smooth beer for 13%. This one, which I belie is 2010 but can’t say for sure, falls in the middle of the black hole line for me...like the cognac, bourbon, red wine and base better, but liked this one better than the tequila, white wine and scotch. The barreling is not overbearing, making for a nice dessert beer as the honey and coffee are still very evident. If anything, just a bit too sweet, but definitely enjoyable. "

Koelschtrinker (14581) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 19, 2014
Rund malzig alkoholischer Antrunk. Deutliche Rum Noten, insgesamt ist das Bier aber nicht vollmundig. Die Lagerung war anscheinend zu lange. 9/11/8/8/9/9

Svesse (7501) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2014
(Bottle) Black colour with brief, foamy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with black coffee, liquorice, soy sauce, muscovado sugar, tar, oak wood and sweetish hints of rum. Malty, roasted taste with notes of strong sweet espresso, tar, liquorice, soy sauce, muscovado sugar, hints of oak wood and a sweet ans slightly boozy finish with a generous cocoa bitterness. Full body, quite sweet. The wood character feels a bit toned down, but gives a certain sweetness and alcohol feel. Not really balanced, but quite tasty. Very nice.
