I MANAGED TO GET ONE ITS OPEN FINALYYYY the ONLY time i waited for a beer , till i get a certain amount of rates. never have i ever, nor will i ever , do that again. why now? this is MY white whale. if i hade a crate on dave, loerik ANS don Q, i would have traded them all for this ! let me explain : before i was into craft beer, i saw these bottles and wanted them BADLY ! but i couldnt get them, untill i kinda knew my way around beer. i liked all of them ( they were actualy the first couple of craft beers i’ve had, but i just LOVED the bd 1 . from there, i went to black albert an hel en verdoemenis. when aged, i kinda prefer the HV a bit over BA . BD is above those 2. hel en verdoemenis 666 is my favourite beer, ever. so , BA + HV = better than both appart hv 666 + better than reguilar HV so, BD 666 should be better than both appart so this would be my best beer ever, with the most nice label and name ever, from the greatest brewers ever, in my favourite stout ever !! i spent a year to get this one . halinghansen is KING for trading me this one ! i couldn’t think of a moment in my life big enough to open this. so why not rate the bd 666 as my 666Th beer? so yeah, behaived like a ticker the last weeks, but here it is ! side by side with the bd 1 ( 13 abv version) to get the little diffrences out. this one pours a bit lighter. foam is very small and fades fast, while the 1 had a big foam and has smaller bubbles, lasts longer. maybe its the age, though . smell : bd 666 is intenser, especialy on the chocolate . yet the diffrences are very subtile ... taste ... DAMN ! i should tell you, i already once mixed the 666 and the BA , in fear i might never get a hold of this bottle. it was pretty ’ normal’ but THIS, THIS is a BIG difffrence ! way more intense than the BD 1, warmth of the barrels, this thing... i first sipped the 1, party in the mouth, i than tasted the 666, explosion ! than the 1 tasted like watter ! DAMN oooh yess, math was right ! this goes right along with the 666 HV and the misto. straight 5/5 . i’d rate higher if i could ! does it pass the hv666 ? well i’m not sure. i’ve had the hv 666 like 15 times, still love it ! will i love this after 15 times? i hope i can someday know that ! but for now, i’d pick this first to have / drink cause of my small chances to ever get another one. tastewise? they’re both PERFECT . if i could change 1 thing about this? it would be i had crates and crates of this beer!

Rating #666, had to take her down after the awesome de molen event. Split with james after the De Molen event at Monks. Pours a mirror black with medium khaki head with tiny, tiny, bubbles, great thick lacing rings. Aromas of fudge, caramel, peanuts,roasty malts, booze, charred wood. Taste is sweet rich stout notes with bitter chocolate, cherries, whiskey barrels, belgian sugars, caramel corn, licorice. Graham cracker smore aftertaste. More warming then Satans butthole. Chest and stomach was buzzing after this. So layered with robust scents and flavors. Proost Menno.

Review from notes. 18cl bottle. Finally opened this personal cellar gem, it was long overdue. Pours a solid jet black with fine tan-colored foam. Aroma is light, yet rich. Coffee, dark chocolate, green peppers, intense grapes from the cognac. Taste is mostly coffee, fondant chocolate, candy sugar, vinous cognac and alcohol warmth. Coats the palate, silky smooth yet never heavy or stodgy. Low in carbonation, but definitely present. This is about as close to technical perfection as I’ve had from an imperial stout. Mind-bogglingly delicious.

Tap, Borefts festival 2010, at the brewery. Coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, cream, espresso, good bitterness, very heart warming alcohol and perfect for the winter. Lacing is excellent and opaque black colour. Thanks to Mes for reminding me that this was on. I nearly forgot. Thanks fella. You save me too much.

18cl bottle - kindly shared buy Dennoman; thank you! Pours opaque black with a nice creamy head, marroon b rown with a purple hue. The aroma is a bouquet of subtle cognac notes, milk chocolate, honey and blackcurrants. Palate is incredibly rich and full and balances sweetness with roasty notes and even green bitters in the end; taste is dark chocolate, green paprica (hints), deep sweet soy sauce and cofee beans. Excellent beer.

Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2010. Pours a pitch black beer with a chocolate beer. The aroma is licorice, coffee, malt, roasted and chocolate. The flavor follows the nose closely. The palate is smooth, rounded, sweetness and roasted. Overall a fantastic beer with a good balance and good complexity. [Rating #1600]
