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.

Nose is lambic from the distance, sweet and heavy, more traditional rough how a dark beer would be. As much as I remember, this is heavier then mikkellers breakfast but more drinkable then brunch weasel. A very good and powerful balance, sweet, chocolate and roast. Looks are nice also. For what ever price, atleast the bottle is a bit larger 375 ml. The level is 9.5-10... ish. Oh, and the alcohol, I almost did not notice.

From Mar 2008 I got this in a trade with RustyDiamond. Thanks Rusty! This pours from foil wrapped, caged and corked 12.7oz bottle a pitch black with a 1 finger head of tannish foam. Good lacing. The smell has notes of roasted malt, fruit, alcohol, and something else in the background. The taste is very strong! Roasted malt, berry flavours, and a huge alcohol presence. I can't taste any coffee or at least, it's not strong enough in flavour for my palate to be noticeable. Damn that alcohol. Burning in the throat and very warming after the swallow. There goes the drinkability for me. Further tiny sips in and I think I'm getting some molasses and some candy sugar and a weird flavour that's putting me off even more(?) than the alcohol? There's also a somewhat citric sour taste that's just starting to show up. Ok, I just can't finish my glass...the flavours here are a real mess, imho, and the alc is just *too* much. Other notes: The body is on the thin side, the carbonation is light and it finishes on the sour(not in a good way) side. This will definitely be a one of for me.

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.

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
