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.

muydeemer (21) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2017
Jet-black with solid, fine, beige head. Aroma: roast malts, dark chocolate, vanilla, hops, coffee and some earthy notes. Thick, syrupy with medium carbonation. Medium sweet. Dark chocolate, roast malts, coffee in flavour. Overall very well-crafted but was a bit disappointed keeping in mind the specification.

Samuel214 (764) - SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2016
Flaska frn liten lbutik i Helsingr. Haft den i dryga ret, och kan ha sttt ett tag i butiken dessfrinnan. Svart med krmigt, beigebrunt skum som ligger kvar. Tung och vlrostad i doften med lika mngd kaffe, honung och vanilj. ven toffee, stma, brnda toner, noterbar beska. Stor kropp. Inte massiv inledningsvis, men svller i munnen. En rejlt stor vrmande spritighet, men vlgjort. Riktigt kaxig l. ven i smaken en mix av kaffe, honung, vanilj som hller sig mellan stma och stora, brnda toner med stor beska. Vldigt stt, men ocks vldigt krvt. Inte helt sker p om de bda dragen kommer verens. Stor beska i avslutningen tillsammans med lite rkiga inslag. Puh!

Tap at Logans event. Black with small head. Super complex. Dark fruit, warming booze. Lightly sweet and a hint of tart astringentcy. Coffee, slight bitter and big roast. Cant imagine drinking a full glass of this, but as a sampler, good stuff.

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.
