Countbeer (4552) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle: The number of this Beast is 0049: Dark brown to black pour. Medium sized, vast, slowly changing, light sticky brown foamy head on top of a black colored beer. Aromas of porridge, some chocolate, some liquorice, light roast, liquor, light whiskey (and lighter cognac) notes, hint of berries, hints of marzepin, filled chocolate, light tar ish tones, grass and floral. A well balanced herbal floral barrel aged roasted mix. Flavours of dry liquor and dry roast, some (dry) liquorice, plant extracts, spices, alcohol, bitter, some chocolate and some cacoa, figs, coal, tabacco, some berries, parfume, oil, tar, chalk, some wood burn/roast and ash. Balanced. Aftertaste is plant extract roast, bitter, grass, liquorice, malt roast, light porridge and tabacco. Low carbo, soft silky mouthfeel, full body and an oily texture. Decent beer, but there’s something strange with this beer. Is it the liquor, the dryness or the spicy bitter tones.. Or is it a mix of all these things? But it’s soft and smooth.. After a time breathing it all becomes even better balanced. Good beer!

Aniela (2414) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2013
Bottle. Black beer with a not lasting tanned head. Dried dark fruits, vanilla, dark chocolate, licorice aroma with some alcohol hints. simliar flavour, maybe a bit too much alcohol flavour. This one needs to mature for a few years to peak.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2013 Bottle at Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen. Bottle no 330. Pitch black beer with a small beige head. Malty peat aroma, whisky, caramel, figs, raisins, dark chocolate, hay, licorice, vanilla, roasted, plums, soot, some cocoa powder. Roasted chocolate flavor, whiskey, woody, plums, raisins, peat, vanilla, hay, caramel, prunes, tar, licorice, cocoa powder, warming alcohol, some raisins. Roasted finish with whiskey, wood, raisins and alcohol. Yes, I have had better 666-versions. Yes, this beer will improve with time. But still its a great beer. New rating, on tap at Mikkeller Bar in december 2013. Same flavors, but more mature. This beer has gained on being on keg for 8-10 months.

MotherBrother (730) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2013
Big thanks to my Mom for bringing this one back from a trip to De Molen. Pour almost pitch black, with a small off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts, smoke, leather, some booze, chocolate, coffee, some wood, slight dirt/gunpowder/asphalt in here as well. The taste is slightly sweet up front, with a really bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied, with a slightly flat carbonation. Pretty tasty, and can’t wait to see how this ages.
