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. Pours pitch black with a huge creamy tanned head. Aroma of dark bitter chocolate,coffee and vanilla. Taste is smooth and fillin, oily mouthfeel, lots of hard roasted coffee, dark chocolate towards the end, blends well with the light alcohol burn and the powerful hops. Shure this is a worldclass beer.

martin00sr (639) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2014
Black with thick and creamy light tan head. Aroma has strong coffee and hops, hints of licorice and black currant. Flavour has more coffee and berries, piercing bitterness just barely controlled by a syrupy sweetness. Big, sticky mouthfeel, lingering bitterness and light alcohol burn. Very good.

Koelschtrinker (10669) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - SEP 19, 2014
Süßer Malzantrunk mit geringer Röstigkeit. Etwas zu zuckrig, frisch rund malzig. Wenig alkoholisch, daher recht süffig. Gut! 8/10/10/10/12/10

rockana (228) - Zadar/Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 19, 2014
Pours dark brown woth average brown head. Alcohol on the nose. Aroma is malty, alcoholic, a bit of coffee and chocolate. Very strong beer, but alcohol is well balanced with sugar so it’s very drinkable. Good one, but nothing to amaze you.

Vestergaard (368) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2014
2012 Bottle. Pours pitch black with a tiny, brown head. Aroma has lots of coffee, licorice and burned sugar. Taste is quite sweet, but greatly balanced compared to younger editions of this. Sugary sweetness. A bit of oatmeal, licorice, coffee, bitter roast and a little molasses. The aging has provided some good port wine notes and a nice balance to this beer. Medium-low carbonation and a nice, full body.

Keg at Munich Tap House, 16th September 14. This is heavy on the nose, booze soaked fruit, a little liquorice, tar, coffee. Taste is interesting and complex, there’s a lot going on. The palate is surprisingly light, and it works. Loved it

Tsekouratos (217) - Nea Filadelfeia, Athens, GREECE - SEP 15, 2014
375 ml bottle shared. Color is black as night, no actual foam forming, only some soap bubbles. Aromas of red wine, oak, bitter chocolate, alcohol. Taste is pretty sweet at first, with vanilla, liquorice, alcohol, some dark fruits, and some coffee and bitter chocolate. Aftertaste is pretty long, and the alcohol kind of burns your eyes and your nose buds. Medium body with no actual carbonation make this one definitely a sipper, and a very slow one!

Sdaniel90 (372) - Mexico City, MEXICO - SEP 14, 2014
Bottle, 375ml. Opaque black with a creamy, lacey brown head. Heavy, even abrasive aroma with strong hints of dried fruits, molasses, vanilla, coffee, roasted malt and alcohol. Robust, but not as much as I expected, with flat carbonation. Inmensely complex, with a huge sweet malt character and lingering bitterness. Perfectly balanced, with nothing being overwhelming. Even the heavy alcohol finish is perfectly controlled. Incredibly rich and strong, yet strangely drinkable. Magnificent.

umich03jm (1973) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a small foamy head that fades to a ring and leaves great lacing. Aromas are chocolate liqueur, pine, roasted coffee, tobacco, brown sugar and dried dark fruit. Taste starts with a brown sugar and molasses sweetness but quickly turns to a moderate bitterness. Baker’s chocolate, coffee grounds, earth, dates, and light smoke. Mouthfeel could be better. Pretty chalky but a good full body. Good stout but I expected a little better. Especially for the price.

It’s literarly a Black Hole! It gives you a taste you’ll never forget - from sweet coffee to dark and bitter leafes of tobacco. It’s a nectar for beerlovers, highly recommended!
