Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - MAY 29, 2011
Sampled at Copenhagen beer festival 2011. This one had something very unique which i’ve only had in a few other beers, but i love it every time. Dense blackish with a thick brown head. Very unique aroma. Loads of cocoa, vanilla, coco along with toffee and honney. Extremly delicious when you have a sweet tooth. Exploding sweet delicious flavor, mainly balanced by the high abv and yumminess in generel. Tequila? Dont know how much a beer this complex gains from certain barrels compared to barrelaging in generel, but it was a bit more sharp and less dry than its redwine counterpart.

Who is this friggin Mikkeller guy anyway and what kind of horse did he ride in on? Pure genius combined with high art. Poured with a fine, thick, creamy, tan head that lasts a while and some lace. Color is opaque black brown. Aroma is mainly roast, malt, cocoa, floral, yeast, hint of tequila. Flavor is much the same but massively so; yet oddly balanced. This is one of my favs of the series so far. Body is superb and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor with lots of alcohol warming and tequila coming thru more. Very long finish. And a pure delight.

UPDATED: SEP 22, 2013 (01/11/2011) New 2011 version \ 37.5 cl bottle @ Delirium Hoppy Loft \ I rather looked forward to this one since I had quite enjoyed both the Red & White wine versions – the Rum one was bit of a let down – and I have never had anything aged on tequila barrels before – I didn’t even know that tequila barrels existed – and this seemed like either a amazing or terrible idea, given my limited exposure to the taste of tequila before I honestly expected this one to be a train wreck but a spectacular one never the less \ Label is the same as with the others only a nice purple wrapper and the bottle has a completely surreal, azure, alien hue \ Ingredients same as the others, usual 13.1 % alcohol – good until 2015 – no extra information \ Colour is black but not the darkest of blacks, almost going over to very dark brown, head is big especially given the strength, a lovely creamy mocha, coffee-coloured head \ Smell is amazing, smells like jelly beans, lots of artificial fruits, blueberry & grape jelly beans mixed with sweet coffee and roasted malt plus what I can only assume to be sweet tequila goodness, no tequila that I have ever tried tasted like this \ Taste is very sweet & creamy, lots of sweet fruits (lots of raisins, prunes & even a hint of white grapes) mixed with sweet coffee, roasted malt (but no ashes or bitter roast here – it is all smooth), gummy bears, an assortment of chemical candy, the taste of artificial sweetener – even though it has none – in the best way imaginable, liquorice and the taste of those UFO-candies (no idea how they are actually called) in the aftertaste, the tequila, I assume, absolutely no alcohol in the aftertaste, incredible, only minor downside is that the liquorice started dominating a bit too much as it warmed down \ Definitely full-bodied but not to heavy to drink, very creamy and smooth with nice carbonation especially given for a stout of this strength \ Overall this is utterly amazing, winner so far of the four that I have tried and my second favourite Mikkeller to date \ As strange of an idea it might have sounded tequila barrel aging is clearly a winner //// Tried another 375 ml. bottle sampled thx! to Martinus. The sour hostie candy flavour is a bit less now but still pretty fun with very interesting notes.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a medium sized brown head. Aroma of tequila, oak, lime and vanilla. Pretty sweet to the taste, tequila, root cellar, vanilla, chocolate, lime and licorice. Full body, low carbonation. Amazing beer!!!

27-MAY-2011,draft @Copenhagen Beerfestival. Black with low head. Love Black Hole. This is almost the origianl version, just with a sweet aditional slightly herbal note. The tequila is not very in your face. Love this:)

First the taste is sweet, followed by alcohol with a noticeable twist of Tequila, the aftertaste is evidently licorice. Thick in texture with medium carbonation. Fantastic beer.

teorn88 (3121) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 12, 2012
On tap at Brewdog Camden. Pours a deep black color with a small brown head. Aroma is stunning, deep and compex. Tequila, wood, cocoa nibs, vanilla. Taste is on the sweet side with a moderate roasted malt bitter bite to it. Nice notes of wood and spirit over a thick bold layer of dark choloate. Body is full and thick with good carbonation. Outstanding. Definitely go for it if you get the chance to try it.

horrible label (blue text on a black background?) but an excellent beer. huge frothy head. would just adding tequila to other beers make them as good?

Another barrel aged black hole edition that I’m impressed with. The agave flavor melds with the typical imperial stout flavors to give off a nice and very unique beer. Warming going down. Very well done!
