lusikka (7700) - 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.

jackl (7069) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle from Mikkeller & Friends bottle shop. Deep, murky brown with absolutely no head. Pretty oily appearance. The nose is rich roasted malt. Plenty of scorched earth, ash. Mild boozy sweetness, dessert liqueur. Bitter dark chocolate and raisin. The taste is more of the same. Bitter chocolate, scorched wood. Bruised dark fruits. Burnt brown sugar. Thick and quite viscous. Not overly boozy, smooth and surprisingly easy to drink. Overall, a pretty good beer, though I can’t say it’s an improvement on 666 itself.

bytemesis (6946) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Bottle thanks to MrH! Pours pitch black with a medium brown creamy head and nice lacing. Aroma is dark roasted malt, coffee, licorice, bourbon. Flavor is the same, medium sweet and light light bitterness. Medium plus body, creamy mouthfeel. Some warming on the finish, but not bad at all for ABV. Nice beer.

teorn88 (6727) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2014
33cl bottle. Pours totally dark with no head at all. Only some big bubbles spread in the glass. Aroma is huge: lots of roasted notes, coffee, licorice, oak and dried fruits. Alocholic warm too. Taste is similar: very malty in the beginning, turning to a soft bitterness and ending with a soft warm sensation of alcohol and oak. Palate is silk, full bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, very tasty brew

caesar (6680) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2013
Tap @ de Molen. Dark color, short brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolat, dry oak wood, some coffee. Full bodied, creamy texture. Big malty taste, quite sweet, medium bitter, slight dry. The oak chips came through a bit too much, or perhaps the Dutchsky gives it a woody touch as well. Not my favorite, as I’m a sucker for bourbon. Still, wonderful beer.

Idiosynkrasie (6518) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 3, 2013
330ml bottle. Deepest dark brown with small, creamy to frothy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, beige head. Dark malty aroma with minimally smoky Bourbon notes, vanilla. Taste has a Bourbon entry, vanilla, a touch of smoke, dark malty coffee and chocolate notes. Too Bourbon dominated for me.
