Black Hole

So I stroll into Green’s, Ponce, Atlanta, GA, USA and take a look inside the Belgian walk-in and I see a bottle of silver foiled neck, Black Hole. It appears to be $9.95, and given that RIS is by no means my favorite stlye, AND I am really wary of the hype associated with many beers, I elect to pass. Anyway, off I go to The Brick Store, Decatur , GA, USA (10 minutes down the road) and Dave insists on cracking a bottle of the same for “research purposes”.
Pretty much exactly as you would expect. Jet black, thin film of mocha head, very little lace. Coffee is big in the nose and the taste with PLENTY of mouth coating film. Big, rich, subtle and all just about in check, this is essentially what you would expect for the style, the brewer and the beer. The label checks this in at 13.1%, so it’s a big brew on all fronts. Mild alcohol burn in the finish.
Drinkable (in small quantities), this is a classy brew but just too immense for anything other than the odd, time to time visit.
