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.

Dixen (1465) - Flagstaff, Arizona, USA - AUG 23, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2006 Bottle #39. Overwhelming aroma of dark roasted malts, liqour soaked fruits and lots of vanilla. Pours pitch black with very little carbonation, a tiny tan ring is barely spotted. Lots of coffee in the flavor, notes of chocolate, vanilla and brandy, reminds me a bit of some sort of vanilla/chocolate ice cream. Very intense, deliveres a small and pleasant alcohol burn to the throat. The vanilla becomes a bit cloying i think.

375ml bottle from Prairie Trail Hy-Vee, in a Sam Smith pint glass. Deep, rich, wonderful aromas of caramel and butterscotch, cinnamon, nutmeg, aged oak, damp earth, medium-roast coffee and warm milk, with a hint of apricot hiding in there too. Pours pitch black with almost three fingers of pillowy caramel-colored head and copious effervescence clinging to to the glass. Nice spider-webby lacing leaves the glass looking appropriately wicked. Light and creamy on the entry with roasty espresso moving in quick for balance. Mostly sustains that flavor combination into a long finish that tempers the roast with a bit of honey sweetness hinted at on the label, with the slow burn of that 13% ABV hitting bottom. Astonishingly light-bodied for a roasty dark beer, thanks to the inclusion of the vanilla. Uncommonly good carbonation for bottled Mikkeller beer, very easy to drink. A very fine brew. The only disappointment being that the flavor doesn't quite equal the nose, as is so often the case. A pleasant experience at any rate. Cheers!

OMBF. W aromacie typowo i bez rewelacji, czekolada i kawa. Ale konkretnie. Obfita, beżowa piana, zostawiająca ślad na szkle. W smaku wytrawne, agresywne, zdecydowanie wybija się paloność, to lubię. Odrobina miodu na finiszu.

OMB kran. Kawa, czekolada, dużo słodów palonych, stosunkowo wytrawne, ciała mogło by być więcej, dobre, ale mimo wszystko trochę ubogie, niewyraźne.

Pite na One More Beer Festival 2017 2 września Kraków Czuć ten miód w aromacie, czuć też mokrego psa i kawę. W smaku mocno palone, kwaśne, gryzące

Deep black beer with a dark beige head. Roasted coffee and sweet berries on the nose with a hint of vanilla. Very soft mouth feel. Kinda woodsy, lots of sweetness, kinda like raspberries and smooth medium roast coffee. Silky texture. This beer is marvelous.

A positive surprise. A dry - toned down version of regular black. Dry and roasty.

Bottle Bought back in utrecht, have been on my shelf for 6 months. Pours pitch Black with tiny lasting beige head. The aroma is intense, dark fruits, coffee, caramel, vanilla. Taste is sweet and complex. Roasted malts, caramel, coffee and vanilla. Slow bitter ending, with long lasting aftertaste. Lovely beer!
