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 enjoyed on New Year’s Eve 2008. Poured a jet black color with a small brown head that left nice swirls on the top of the beer. The aroma consisted of dark, bitter chocolate, coffee, dark fruit and sweet malts. The taste was extremely complex with rich chocolate notes, coffee hints, and sweet malts. It had a very enjoyable bitter taste to it. I also could not help but notice the nice lacing on the side of my glass. While I was drinking it, I kept thinking of FFF Dark Lord. Any beer that reminds me of that gem gets a thumbs up in my book!

vtg backlog, Bottle bought at Capones shared with Pat, pours a midnight black color with a thick and syrupy mouthfeel. Light head/lacing. Smell is fudge, roasted malt, smoke, and coffee. Flavor is a lot of the same with espresso, cocoa, and malts. Rich and complex brew from Mikkeller

From bottle @ home. My fav. imp stout to date. In comparison, nothing Ive tried competes. This is a wild one. The bitterness together with the warmth of the alcohol and sweetness of the roasted malt, superb.

vincentvega72 (465) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2016
Donkerzwart bier met crmekleurige schuimkraag. Bier blijft goed plakken aan het glas. Aroma en smaken van koffie, hop, vanille, zeer romig en vol in de mond. Perfect in balans. Ondanks de 13 % abv gaat deze hl vlot naar binnen. Zoete aanzet van vanille, beetje honing, met een (licht) bitterzoete afdronk. Niks minder dan subliem !!!

Draught/bottle. Very dark brown, almost black in colour, small brown head. Aroma of chocolate, rather sweet with coffee, trufles and vanilla. In taste sweet with chocolate, caramel, vanilla and some booze. Full body, moderate carbonation, finish is ashy and medium bitter.

Bottle. Beautiful appearance: Intense black color, with beige to brown head, of medium persistence. Excellent aroma of roasted malts, cofee alcohol and, maybe, dried fruits. Taste doesnt follow the aroma. Something between bitter and sweet, with a light sour and alcohol in the final. But not balanced. Less than expected fom a Mikkeller top RIS.

Aus der Flasche getrunken (bei Getrnkefeinkost ergattert). Tiefschwarz und undurchsichtig im Glas. Beiger stabiler Schaum. In der Nase mischen sich Schoko- mit Brandynoten. Im Mund dann eine verwirrende Geschmacksexplosion: Schoko, Kakoakreme, hochprozentige Alkoholika... Es verbleibt die Erinnerung an ein hochprozentiges Mixgetrnk, weniger an ein Klassebier.
