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.

yngwie (16518) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle, 33cl. A black one, topped by a dense, dark beige head. The aroma has chocolate, coffee, some alcohol notes, booze actually, and a light roasted touch. There’s some bitterness in the flavor, of the hoppy kind, as well as chocolate, coffee, some roasted malts and booze. It’s warming and full-bodied on the palate, with a soft and pleasant carbonation level. Lasting roasted and lightly boozy finish. Overall, too warming, but sure tasteful. 140207

mcberko (14659) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out notes of bourbon, spiciness, and roast. Flavour seems off a bit, with notes of cough syrup, other medicinal notes and light barrel notes. Something seems badly wrong here - how is this in the 100th percentile? Decent, but lacking.
