> 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.

77ships (8211) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2013 Thx to Kraddel @ Rampkrot Whale tasting – 33 cl. Bottle sample. Didn’t know that this existed until today. Black mocha head only on the sides. Nose is mocha, cognac booze, light soy, chocolate, bitter,… Taste is bitter soy, roasted chocolate, vinous, red grapes, vines, liquorish, molasses, bitter roasted malts, bitter herbs, candy, strong bitter spices,… Flat mats,… okay but nowhere near as good as some of the original 666 I have head but that is the regular De Molen story these days.

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.

gyllenbock (7999) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2014
On tap at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm. Black with a minimal tan head. Aroma and taste of bitter chocolate, roasted malt, wood, port, licorice and some light notes of berries. The body was thick. The finish was long and with warming alcohol. A pleasant one.
