Bottle. Pours black with a fizzy brown head. Aroma is nice base H&V with some smokey whiskey notes, sweet chocolate, sweet ripe fruits, vanilla and woody notes behind. Pretty nice Aroma yo. The taste reminds me a lot about H&V too.. Lots of roasted notes, liquorice, and darks died fruits but also some vanilla and some more alcohol woody notes behind. Not a turn off at all. The beer carries the 13% very well. Lower carb would not hurt anyone though :). All in all - This is gawd stuffz!

Vestergaard (454) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2014
33 cl Bottle. Pours pitch, heavy black with a brown, short lasting head. Aroma has both bourbon and smoked whiskey notes, butter, vanilla, heavy roast, baked banana, syrup, salt, burned sugar. Taste is yummy! Lots of vanilla, espresso. Sweet in a fruity way. The alcohol is definitely there, but it adds complexity and body to the beer. Speaking of, the palate is overall pretty nice, but the carbonation is a little too high imo. One of the better variants!

330ml bottle from Mikkeller & Friends

Bottle #0022 (!), vertical with 666 - Pours pitch black with a tiny bubbly head. Aroma of roasty malts, whisky, vanilla, oak, wood and sweet syrup. Taste is heavy, sweet and roasty with notes of whisky, vanilla, oak, wood and syrup. Finish is smooth, woody and oaky with notes of vanilla and whisky. Quite heavy and sweet, whisky notes are more subtle than the cognac notes in 666.

jackl (4980) - Charlottesville, Virginia, 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.

MotherBrother (766) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAY 31, 2013
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.
