Idiosynkrasie (5180) - 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.

bytemesis (4969) - 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.

thnx to kermis ! at rampkrot whale tasting, drank the day after ( it was closed by a corck, so the diffrence should not be that big ) i went INSANE when i heard this was at cbc , and i wasnt able to go . thank god i did get this one after all. 666 ’regular’ is my top favourite beer. so if only for the label, i NEEDED to have this ! pours pure black, small layer of grey foam, fades to a ring . very oaty in the smell, hel en verdoemenis is definetly there. actualy, this is very comparable to the 666 ! thats unexpected ( by the diScription, not the label , wich is a copy of the regular one ;) ) bitter, bit lighter mouthfeel than the 666 . sweet, and VERY good. givven the fact this is a day open now ( closed pretty good though, it actualy popped when re-opened ) . not as shocking as the 666 though. it misses the warm smell, the supergood aftertaste. plus coffee is less straight forward. but whiskey isnt my thing AT ALL n, and it doesnt bother me, not even close, in this beer. so very well done! will rerate when i had again and the bottle hasnt been opened. i have another bottle so it should be no problem :)

jfb (4776) - Freising, GERMANY - AUG 24, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 (bottle) pours black in colour with a creamy beige head. aroma of rotten peaches, rubber tires, caramel, vanilla, brown sugar, lavender, toasted malts and nettles. flavour is caramel, brown sugar and chocolate icing, slightly oxidised, with notes of vanilla, herbal hops and some robust notes of alcohol in the finish. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation. nowhere near as good as the original.

Poured deep brown with a frothy beige head. Aroma of roast malt, caramel, dark chocolate, coffee. Full body, flavour of sweet caramel, roast malt. Might cellar a bottle and see how it develops after a couple of years.

JulienHuxley (4448) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Bottle, many thanks to Kermis for helping me slay this H&V tick. Opaque black pour with rich creamy brown foam. Aroma of whisky, really rich chocolaty aromas, a bit smoky, anise aromas, roasty. Taste is rich, tons of chocolate, nice spirit flavors. Palate is chewy, sweet but with good carbonation to cut through. Super tasty.
