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.

t-randers (69) - LUXEMBOURG - JUL 29, 2020
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2020 Pitch black with a very small and non lasting tan head, probably because of the bad pour. Smells of roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolate and a bit of soy sauce, which is repulsive. Very roasty and sharp burning taste.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2020 March 20th, 2016 - Another beer from the storage cellar today, Mikkeller's Black Hole promises a well aged, relaxed and flavorful brew on the dark end of the spectrum. But like the other Mikkeller I pulled from the cellar, this one is dead flat, too. Even so, the nose is still powerful with licorice and anise, like a lacquer, and maybe some pine and pine tar. Though the lack of carbonation absolutely kills the flavor, there's still a nice collection of notes: licorice, pine, pine tar. The benefits of aging also show themselves here with a seamless integration of the alcohol notes, which lend strength and zip to the more powerful tasting notes. In a way it tastes like a pine forest. Imagine how good this beer must have been in it's prime...

elosop (940) - Mölnlycke, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2020
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2020 Kolsvart med tunt beige skum. Doftar kaffe, bränd rostad malt. Smaken fyllig, gräddig, söt, toffé, kola, sirap, torkad frukt och kandisocker. Eftersmaken lång, söt, med kvardröjande, nästan besk, syrlig smak av bränt muscovadosocker. Rejtad öl Mikkeller Black (2019) 15%.

crajun (1400) - , Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2020 stored for a couple of years; maybe purchased in CO? nice aroma of stout and light vanilla and wood. soy sauce in taste. nice palate but not thick. could have been thicker with more flavor; not a tope end stout in my book.

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2019 Klasyczny RIS. Bez udziwnień i dróg na skróty. Mocno palony, czekoladowy, wytrawny z delikatną tylko slodyczą. Oleisty i gładki.

KevinReddirt (755) - Midland, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 19, 2019 Wow, what a label, and then I saw Mikkeller and that it was a stout of some kind. Obtained at an upscale beer shop in Santa Fe in October, it is getting the try tonight. I selected my New Belgium tulip for the tasting. The lid comes off and I make the pour out of a 12.7 oz bottle. The body is coal black with a resolute light-to-medium tan skim of foam, The scent is strong licorice, sour dough bread and blackberry, all good. But I am here for the drink. Heavy on the malt, quickly a berry sweetness, oatmeal, cracker, light chocolate and firmly bitter at the end. Not as viscous as other imperial stouts but that is not a bother, just an observation. A very good effort, not a favorite.

Grzesiek79 (5645) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 6, 2019
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2019 Starzone perfekcyjnie w ciemnej piwnicy ok 4 lata. Od czego tu zaczac...hm.. moze od najslabszego ogniwa jakim jest wyglad. Naturalnie jest czarne jak kombinezon Kobayashiego ale z piana juz gozej, jest srednia i znika szybko jak winda w przeszklonym amerykanskim biurowcu, ale jest ciemno bezowa i lepi sie do sniftera. Posmak i smak jest tu najlepsza strona tego piwa. utrzymuje sie niesamowicie dlugo, smakuje jak przynajmniej 20-to letnie porto z domieszka kawy, kawowo jest wyraziscie rozgrzewa, nuty czerwonego pieprzu, papryczki chilli, cukierki kopiko, belgijskie praliny, orzechy. Niesamowite, wyraziste geste i nawet wytrawne po chwili przelkniecia. Przy takim stezeniu alkoholu poza rozgrzewajacym efektem byl nie wyczuwalny. Klasa sama w sobie. Polecam do sera pecorino, ekstra pasowalo.

Fules (1848) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - NOV 19, 2018
Semmi hab, fekete szín. Csokis, kakaós, aszalt gyümölcsös illat. Csokis, kakaós, kávés, aszalt gyümölcsös ízek, némi orvosságos, földes beütéssel. Testes, enyhén szénsavas, erősen keserű. Nagyon dícsérik, és érzem is benne a potenciált, csak nekem nem nagyon jön be ez az orvosságos vonal.

Medium formation and high density foam. Very dark like a strong coffee liquid. On the smell you feel a little bit sweetness and alcohol, something that reminds rum. The vanilla is not very perceptible as it should be. On mouth, you can feel the power of this beer as a true imperial stout. It is malted, very alcoholic and you feel the high bitterness came from toasted notes at the end of the sip. The aftertaste has the same bitterness taste, but just a little bit stronger. A very well balanced beer, not too sweet and a punch of alcohol but you can’t integrally feel it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
