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.

Roast, coffee, licorice, a lot of licorice, some dark fruits, plums, raisin, some back end alcohol. Super nice, and super well combined, a real explosion of flavour. Medium mouthfeel, maybe a bit too heavy on the alcohol.

Black with a light brown head. Aroma of coffee, herbs, roast, and licorice. Taste is full of roasted coffee with a fruity sweetness. Creamy full body.

375 ml bottle. Pours black with moderate foamy tan head. Aromas of vanilla, creamy licorice ice cream, dark chocolate, creamy coffee, and some dark fruit.Wow. Flavors of are mellower but still very rich and smooth. ABV is well hidden. Close to utopia.

Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a dark brownish black with bubbly tan brown head. Aroma is big on the roast with a boozy back end and some added sugary sweetness, molasses or honey. Taste follows, big and boozy. Very nice.

Had at tasting at local bar. Stout’s color leans more towards a dark brown then a black. Nice medium brown head. Aroma strong of roasted coffee with some chocolate tones. Not very think on the palate, but I am always a fan of these higher alcohol boozy beers.

Rule number one: if you call your beer "Black Hole" it better be blacker than black, not just very deep brown. Apart from this obvious flaw, the beer looks good, it has a small, medium brown head of decent life-time, and it laces the glass pretty well. The aroma is strong, heavily roasted with ash and lots of coffee. I served this one too cold, and before it had warmed up a bit I found the coffee notes pretty cheap, dry and close to cold filter coffee, i.e. not that exciting. After a while though the aroma improves, and I also get some sweet notes of brown sugar. The taste is much sweeter than I initially assumed, and the long-lasting finish is moderate to heavy bitter and ensures that the brew feels balanced. The strong flavour has notes of dark roasted malt, coffee and alcohol, but the best thing is a lovely honey background that keeps growing as the contents of my bottle decreases. The body is full, the texture is oily and the carbonation is very soft. A delicious beer!

Great interesting dark stout. A perfect final beer with chocolate and coffee notes. Serve at a dessert, one bottle for two people. - pixels sent via Beer Buddy on iOS

37.5cl bottle Black, brown foam. Semi sweet aroma with caramel, chocolate, espresso, dark fruits. Big body with a nice sweetness balanced by the dark malts. Very nice!

Beerenberger (1414) - Fischer, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2014
Chocolate and hints of tropical fruit on the nose. A rich enveloping dark brownish black pour with a espresso hued head and minor lacing. The palate is greeted by roasted malts, sugared candy, coffee bitterness, and raisins. The alcohol is well hidden. Full body and moderate carbonation. Thick mouthfeel. Overall, this is a heavy hitter. Very robust and complex - a nice expression of the ying and yang between sweetness and bitterness.
