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.

jackafholmes (1015) - - 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 (2243) - 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.

mice (940) - FINLAND - JUL 21, 2016
Sysimusta olut kohtalaisella ruskealla vaahdolla. Tuoksu makeahko, paahteisen kahvinen ja suklainen sekä lakritsinen .Lisäksi havuista humalointia havaittavissa taustalla. Maku karamellisen maltainen, paahteisen kahvinen ja suklainen. Kahvinen ja hieman alkoholinen jälkimaku on pitkä. Melko täyteläisen öljyinen suutuntuma, hiilihappoja vähäisesti. Laadukas olut, jossa maussa alkoholi puskee hieman turhan paljon läpi.

Calisky (2916) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUL 18, 2016
Couleur noire, bonne mousse brune. Nez café, grain de café, note sucrée. Gout bien intense de malt noir, café, grain de café, ecorce d’orange confite, houblon herbeux avec notes douces de café mocha. Magnifiquement complexe et ronde sur le houblon, café, fruité orange... Corp légèrement huileux, fin bien longue en bouche.

Lele (556) - Padova, ITALY - JUL 17, 2016
ASPETTO: nero impenetrabile, schiuma marrone, abbondante, fine e persistente. AROMA: incredibile! Liquoroso, caffè, liquirizia, cacao, cioccolato, legnoso. GUSTO: in bocca è un capolavoro. Calda, avvolgente, alcolica, anche se non dà alla testa. Si avvertono tutti i sentori percepiti l naso, con una preponderanza di caffè, liquirizia e liquoroso. Corpo decisamente strutturato, carbonizzazione giusta. Veramente un capolavoro di perfezione!

Alkoholi puskee tuoksussa läpi. Maussa on humalien antamaa kitkeryyttä enemmän kuin stouteissa normaalisti. Alkoholi puskee myös maussa kovasti läpi. Omalla tavallaan ihan oiva.

bytemesis (8236) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Bottle from 2012. Pours opaque black, no head, no lacing. Aroma is pretty heavy on molasses, cocoa, tobacco. Flavor is medium sweet, fully bitter, molasses and cocoa. Medium body, truly flat, uninspiring mouthfeel. Pretty boozy.

3.2
OminouSC2 (648) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2016
Picth black. Sweet aromas, chocolate, dextrose and alcohol. Taste reminds me a lot of Mikkeller Black, very heavy sweet, syrup and molasses. Better balance though, so it gain a few points there. Still not my cup of tea.

4.5
nosajhongkong (77) - North Point, HONG KONG - JUL 9, 2016
0,375L bottle bought at the Bottle Shop Hong Kong. Appearance: Pours black colour with thin tan head that leaves fair bits of lacing on the glass. Aroma: Very rich and complex aroma with heavy cocoa , roasted malt, sweet vanilla, caramel, coffee and toasted bread with a touch of honey and liquorice note. Taste: Medium to heavy hop bitterness and chocolate, caramel malt sweetness. Some berry, spice and liquorice taste are added on to the taste later. Palate: Extremely creamy and smooth texture, with long and bitter hop finish. The body is very full and alcoholic. Overall: A very aggressive and heavy imperial stout, but at the same time enjoying it very much. It has combined the sweet, heavy roasted malt and the bitter hops beautifully. A superb stout brewed by Mikkeller .

ElDesmadre (3626) - Mikołów, POLAND - JUN 1, 2016
Bottle. Sherry-like mead notes, lots of body, creamy mouthfeel, not too sweet actually, notes of coffee, roasted finish. Alas, the beer is pierced through and through by notes of acetaldehyde, midway between green apples and solvent. On top of that, the alcohol is shamelessly exposed. What a letdown.
