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.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, - JUL 16, 2008
Aroma: wine, honey, pepper, lovely, dark malt. Vinous as hell, sourish, coffee, vanilla, very piny & powerful hops. Tabascolike scent. Preserved strawberries. Rose hip.
Flavour: Peppery, malty, coffee, chocolate fudge. Very peculiar bittersweet flowery backbone. Elderberry & honey. Overall on the bitter, dark malty & floral side. Oatmeal can be sensed. This is freaking magic. Vinous...
Apperance: reddish black, slightly cloudy body with brown rind. Brown beige superfine bubbles leaving a film of foam. Quite spectacular.
Palate: velvety, smooth. Vinous. Slippery & dry feeling.

375 ml. bottle. Pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma of coffee, malt, and vanilla. Taste is coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, dark fruit, and alcohol. Very good.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2017 Bottle from April 2014. Full bodied. Pitch black. Lots of coffee, chocolate, sweet fruits, roast and some red fruits. Sweet with a bitter finish. Quite a beast of a stout. The ageing mellowed it a bit out but that's not a bad thing. Very good!

Good beer! Full aroma, little bit boozy but is good for 13.1. What if this beer is not to beer geek series? Its awesome! Its underrated i think. It has interesting aroma to stouts, it is different. Coffee full, bourbony, choco full and something interesting in it. Something deep to this beer, like, black hole...

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.

bjorn77 (667) - Kraków, POLAND - SEP 5, 2017
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
