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.

JLAudio (282) - Crestwood, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2008
This is another MIkkeller classic. This version is toned down in comparison to Mikkeller black, but still delivers. It has great aroma, appearance, mouthfeel, complexity, and finish. None of them are outstanding, or stand out, but everything is brewed to perfection. This is so balanced it’s rediculous.

sinte (557) - Udine, ITALY - MAY 10, 2017
Bottle 0.375L. Dark brown-to-black body with a huge, frothy, tan head, fully lasting with nice lacing. Moderate-to-heavy malty (roasted) and light-to-moderate hoppy (citrus) aroma with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, some vanilla, blackberry and alcohol. Moderate-to-heavy sweet and bitter flavour; long lasting finish with a sweetish character that develops into a dry coffee note. Medium-to-full body with oily-to-creamy texture; soft carbonation; light-to-moderate alcoholic warming in the finish. Very nice and complex!

tightslice (1204) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAY 3, 2017
On tap at Harrys Hofbrau in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is strange charred fruits, dark herbal elixirs, roast coffee, tobacco and leathery things. Taste is sweet dark fruits, overripe plums, tangy porter qualities. Hard to pin this beast down, got the best of me...

willisread (3246) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - MAY 2, 2017
Backlog, tap at Mikkeller Tokyo. Pours an evil looking pitch black with a brown head that lingers then dissipates. Lots of roasted cacao nib, toasted vanilla, coffee, dark fruit and faint licorice. Oily on the palate, with lots of roast. As it warms more of the fruit comes out on the palate into the finish. Warming finish, but abv hidden fairly well for how high it is.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Intensywnie palone, kawowe, nuty miodowe/cynamonowe też się przewijają.

humpah (230) - Jyvskyl, FINLAND - APR 8, 2017
0,375l bottle bought from Alko November 2015. Pours pitch black colour with some head. Flavor of roasted malts, sweetness, caramel, alcohol, coffee, cocoa and vanilla, gives a bit sweet boozy feeling. Heavy but balanced beer, bitterness does edge out the alcohol a bit, which still stands out. Warm alcoholy aftertaste.

BlazerT (1050) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 3, 2017
Butelkowane. Barwa ciemno brunatna/czarna. Piwo niezwykle złożone - głwnie dominują palone słody - mocna kawa, gorzka czekolada, trochę kakao. W tle za to moc ciemnych, suszonych owocw, lekka "kawowa" kwaskowatość. Smak umiarkowanie do wysoce słodkiego, super, lekka kontra goryczkowa, kwaskowate (kawa). Alko bdb ukryte. Generalnie bardzo dobre piwo, znakomice ukryty alkohol, dobra kompozycja słodw palonych z fajną kontrą pod postacią ciemnych, suszonych owocw. Solidne piwo od Mikkellera.

GhostS (293) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - MAR 23, 2017
Aroma - pleasant, coffee with milk, some burnt malt, a bit of green fruits, flowers, dark honey and some yeasts. Taste - a lot of roasted malt, some burnt malt, coffee diluted with milk, a bit of sourness and burn bitterness, alcohol with cherries. Good, but quite a bit strange.
