rlgk (11344) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 12, 2013
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.

> An umami/salt/smoke and fresh orange version of our beloved H&V behemoth

[ Bottle ][ bytemesis ][ 330mL ][ Pizza Boy Snifter ][ Trade ][ 1/31/14 ]
>> Pours deep sepia with lower coffee foam. Nose totally insane- rich fudge, vanilla ice cream, sweet smoke, powerful black miso umami, black rock salt. Taste is a bit ashy with decent lemon, finishing true with bitter chocolate, moderate smoke, salt, miso. Palate gets richer, silkier as it warms with bright orange dark chocolate. Fantastic version of this classic.

Bottle thanks to Bruce - cheers! It pours near black with a small light tan head. The nose is earth, roasty, toast, milk chocolate, vanilla, toasted coconut, rocky road, fudge and treacle. The taste is rich-roasted malt, coffee, toast, earth, light spice, bourbon, brown sugar, molasses, warming, cola, burnt caramel and dark fruit with a dry, roasty finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. Good depth of flavour. Nice balance and rather drinkable.
