Prufrockstar (1385) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle thanks to bytemesis. Deep brown pour with khaki head. Some lacing, even the next day. Roast, chocolate, dark fruit; coffee, soft vanilla and oak. Light marshmallow. Sweet, with warming, moderately bitter finish. Full body, slick texture. Overall: on the mellower side of treatments for this beer, but a nice sipper.

Ferris (7011) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2014
Bottle - Little booze and nice roasty sweetness. Deep brown black with a decent light brown head. Roast, chocolate, light barrel and a nice finish. Not as good as the big brother, but still good.

teorn88 (3555) - London, 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

Draught at Mikkeller, Black sensation. Smell has some chocolate, vanilla and malts. Pours black with a small beige head. Taste has some vanilla and some chocolate. Thin palate, yet oily. Nice beer, very pleasant.

Travlr (15065) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle. Clear maroon color, thick beige head with good retention. Aroma of cocoa, licorice, burnt brownies. Taste is Italian espresso and chocolate soda. Very nice.

lusikka (6946) - 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.

laiti (6821) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
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.
