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.

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.

RickFifty (405) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - NOV 22, 2014
Black color, light brown head. Roasted malt, coffee, milk chocolate, dried fruit, licorice, alcohol, hint of vanilla. Roasted malt taste, espresso coffee, dark chocolate, burnt sugar, hints of alcohol and wood, sour note, dry finish. Full body, average to soft carbonation, warming alcohol. The serving temperature is essential, this should definitely not be served cold. Personal stats: Rating #400

Bottle pour opaque black with thick tan head. Nose sweet malt, milk chocolate, coffee, cherry, and hint of alcohol. Taste starts with more dark fruit flavors then the chocolate and coffee. Mid palate bounces between bitterness from the hops and chocolate flavors with alcohol. Nice interplay between sweet and bitter. Light roast on the finish. Syrupy mouth feel.
