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.

mateuszk (2668) - Poznań, POLAND - SEP 16, 2016
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.

vladslav1976 (9) - Porto Alegre, BRAZIL - SEP 7, 2016 does not count
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.

Michael27 (1772) - Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 3, 2016
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.

Cerveza con corona pequeña de burbujas compactas. Apariencia negra completamente, aromas a maltas tostadas con ciertas notas a aquellas cervezas belgas de tradición. Al paladar al inicio se perciben notas con características a cervezas belgas con un final a una imperial stout pesada, ahumada y con notas sutiles a dulce. Gran cerveza, de gran complejidad y pesada es cuestiones de graduación de alcohol. Conclusión cerveza altamente recomendada. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

alteregoo (1344) - Kalisz, POLAND - AUG 28, 2016
Piana drobna, dość obfita i całkiem trwała. Barwa ciemno brązowa, wydaje się klarowna. Aromat słodki, czekoladowy, miodowo cukrowy, nieco truflowy i kawowy, może z odrobiną miodu, wanilii, likieru i siarki(?). W smaku rwnież dość słodko, cukrowo, jest też sporo paloności i alkoholu. W posmakach kwaskowość od ciemnych słodw, tytoń i mid. Goryczka średnia, popiołowa, szorstka, dość nieprzyjemna. Wysycenie niskie do średniego, drobniutkie, mało ciała, dość rzadkie i wyklejające w odbiorze.
No jest to swego rodzaju negatywne zaskoczenie - piwo, na ktre liczyłem, że ma szansę dorwnać legendarnemu Black, a tu niestety mało ciała, za dużo cukru, za jasne i za alkoholowe (pomimo leżakowania go od grudnia 2014r.).

Bamsen78 (5292) - Snderborg, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2016
Bottle. Pours cloudy very dark brown with airy but stable tan head. Clear aroma of rast,mcoffee, fruit and malt. Booze in the long nose. Sweetish flavour of malt and fruit,mwith roasty and coffeelike notes and touches of yeast. Warming alcohol presence. Boozy and roasty afteraste with malty hints. Good. Dangerous, though. My rating #5000. Thanks everyone for taking me this far :-) Ooooooh, Im halfway there!

ZodiacM (1100) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 10, 2016
Poured from the bottle (.375l). Beautiful black beer with creamcoloured head. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee and vanilla. This comes back in the taste, together with some honey and dried fruit. The beer is sweet-bitter, while the aftertaste is more or less sweet. Because of the addition of honey the taste is a bit strange in a very good way. Wonderful and complex!

alomtnez (380) - SPAIN - AUG 10, 2016
Big creamy beige head with medium retention. Dark brown colour (mahogany). Aroma is complex and rich: roasted prune, liquor, alcohol, espresso, vanilla. Taste is liquor, dry coffee, roasted dried dark fruits. Some fruity acidity finish. As complex and rich as the aroma. Perhaps too much alcohol dominance. Medium-full bodied.

jackafholmes (1012) - - AUG 6, 2016
Bottle from Hop Hideout, and my 1000th rate! Deep Dark brown with a foamy mocha head. Aroma is black forest gateau, liquorice, cherries, and blackcurrants, a bit of coffee too. Taste is tartly boozy and sweet and bitter. Surprisingly drinkable due to its lightness and light carbonation. Excellent and a good choice for a 1000th rate! cheers!

vinivini (2052) - Gomel, BELARUS - AUG 3, 2016
Deep brown to black, opaque. Moderate tan to brown head. The aroma is surprisingly floral. Blossom, Melissa. Later coffee beans, lemon come. Earthy. Pepper. Vanilla. Nice. Medium to full body. Oily to thick palate. Complex taste. Coffee, vanilla, port wine, dark fruit. Earth. Light to medium citric bitterness. Oh my goodness. Perfect.
