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.

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 (4114) - 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.

vincentvega72 (886) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 21, 2016
Donkerzwart bier met crèmekleurige 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 héél vlot naar binnen. Zoete aanzet van vanille, beetje honing, met een (licht) bitterzoete afdronk. Niks minder dan subliem !!!

3.4
mateuszk (2769) - 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.

4.1
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 doesn’t 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.
