COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Finally……! Black Hole is what Mikkeller is all about. Daring, vulgar and extreme. From the very beginning Mikkellers goal has been to push the limit and with this warming, intense imperial stout, a new chapter in the Danish beer history has been written. The high bitterness from the hops and the sweetness from the malt and alcohol, creates a good balance which makes Black Hole an explosion of nuances, but also leaves a feeling of a perfect and complex beer – in the heavyweight category.

gad905 (168) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Draft at BD ShepBush. Pours oily black, tan head that lasts well. Nose of roast, dark caramel, chocolate, vanilla, muscovado, coffee. Tastes sweet molasses sugar and milk chocolate, touch of acidity, fruity coffee, roasty bitterness and cocoa. Full body, creamy thick mouthfeel, moderate carb, well-tempered booze, then long finish of molasses with that sweet and acidic note. Real good, super-smooth but still with some bite.

AshtonMcCobb (2938) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 28, 2014
Bottle thanks to allmyvinyl. Appearance - opaque black with a lovely fawn head. Nose - dry earthy, resiny. Then liquorice and charcoal coming through. Rye spice perhaps. Taste - nuts and coffee. Chocolate but dry. Salt caramel and liquorice. Spice again. Palate - medium to full bodied with a big crunchy texture and a long dry balanced finish. Overall - seriously complex.
