mcberko (8443) - 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.

Scopey (8329) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2013
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.

Ferris (6784) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle - Little booze and nice roasty sweetness. Deep brown black with a decent light brown head. Roast, chocolate, light barrel and a nice finish. Not as good as the big brother, but still good.

lusikka (6770) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a black colour without a head. Aroma of roastiness, nutty malts, cognac and and tart wood. Flavour of roastiness, tart wood, cream, vanilla, herbs, molasses and licorice. Full bodied and oily but a bit thin mouthfeel. Carbonation is too low, unfortunately, as it is almost non-existent. Flavour is more complex than in the original version. Too flat, still.

33 cl bottle @ tiong, bottle #0022?
Vertical with 666
Aroma is sweet with oat, nuts and whisky tones; peat and some smoke. Also hints of hay. More stale than 666. Flavour is sweet with whisky, woody tones, peat and licorice. Also some salmiac. Pleasant, better than 666. More stinging and aggressive though.
