Big thanks to my Mom for bringing this one back from a trip to De Molen.
Pour almost pitch black, with a small off-white head.
Aroma of roasted malts, smoke, leather, some booze, chocolate, coffee, some wood, slight dirt/gunpowder/asphalt in here as well.
The taste is slightly sweet up front, with a really bitter aftertaste.
Medium bodied, with a slightly flat carbonation. Pretty tasty, and can’t wait to see how this ages.

shared a bottle with friens. for me this one is way better as the normal 666 version. there is no overtone of cognac - whisky. nice taste of vanilla, oak, chocolate, nice and thick mouthfeel. to bad it’s sold out. still have 2 bottles left. let’s age them for a while

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle from Mikkeller & Friends bottleshop. Black pour with lovely mocha head that goes the distance. Lovely dark fruits and licorice on the nose - touches of coffee, slightly fruity and vanilla-driven whiskey notes in there too. Smooth vanilla-heavy whiskey in the taste, big roasted malt, plums, figs, dark chocolate, light roast coffee, more licorice, big brown sugar. Tiny touch of booze. Full bodied and velvety. A bit of an earthy hop bite to finish, lingering fruity whiskey and dark fruits. Great stuff.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2014 Pours black, thin light tan head fades to hazy layer of foam on the surface, tight ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma begins with whiskey- vanilla, coconut and melted caramel- light toffee chocolate roast, fudge and booze-soaked raisin, light cherry. Taste is spicy caramel and whiskey, subtle vinous notes, cocoa dusting, darker bitter roast amid lighter fruit elements,vanilla hiding in the background.

On tap. Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste like aroma but adds vanilla, wood and booze. Sweet and pleasant with a little bit of bitterness in the finish. Full bodied. Overall very good - the barrel ageing is very balanced. Definitely one I'd drink again.
