UPDATED: DEC 12, 2013 Bottle at Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen. Bottle no 330. Pitch black beer with a small beige head. Malty peat aroma, whisky, caramel, figs, raisins, dark chocolate, hay, licorice, vanilla, roasted, plums, soot, some cocoa powder. Roasted chocolate flavor, whiskey, woody, plums, raisins, peat, vanilla, hay, caramel, prunes, tar, licorice, cocoa powder, warming alcohol, some raisins. Roasted finish with whiskey, wood, raisins and alcohol. Yes, I have had better 666-versions. Yes, this beer will improve with time. But still its a great beer. New rating, on tap at Mikkeller Bar in december 2013. Same flavors, but more mature. This beer has gained on being on keg for 8-10 months.

77ships (3589) - 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.

UPDATED: MAY 3, 2014 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
