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.

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.

16/20 huge imperial stout with nice bitterness to it. 14% too drunk to give proper assessment.

Flaska från liten ölbutik i Helsingör. Haft den i dryga året, och kan ha stått ett tag i butiken dessförinnan. Svart med krämigt, beigebrunt skum som ligger kvar. Tung och välrostad i doften med lika mängd kaffe, honung och vanilj. Även toffee, sötma, brända toner, noterbar beska. Stor kropp. Inte massiv inledningsvis, men sväller i munnen. En rejält stor värmande spritighet, men välgjort. Riktigt kaxig öl. Även i smaken en mix av kaffe, honung, vanilj som håller sig mellan sötma och stora, brända toner med stor beska. Väldigt sött, men också väldigt kärvt. Inte helt säker på om de båda dragen kommer överens. Stor beska i avslutningen tillsammans med lite rökiga inslag. Puh!

Tap at Logan’s 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. Can’t 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

teddybeer (3735) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 3, 2016
2nd International Stout Day 2016 Beer. Black color with abeige head, short duration and nice lacework. Aroma has muscatel notes, slightly sweet and roasted malts. Flavor is slightly sweet with hints of white grapes where moscatel notes are more present and in high proportion. Slightly bitterness in the final with hints of coffee beans. Dense and creamy on palate with some coffee notes in the aftertaste.

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