33 cl bottle. Vertical tasting with 666-ish.
Pours black color with a small off-white head. Dry dark roasty malts on the nose, oat, rye, licorice, wood. Dry malty flavor, lots of sweet chocolate, cognac and faint licorice. Dry and refined. Slightly better compared to 666-ish.

lusikka (6206) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a black colour with a small beige head. Aroma of rich nutty maltiness, bread, dark chocolate and muffin. Flavour of roasted malts, red berries, syrup, chocolate, some mud cake and creamy vanilla notes. Full bodied and creamy, soft, roasty finish. Sweet but rich and balanced.

laiti (5629) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
33 cl bottle @ tiong, bottle #1689
Vertical with 666-ish
Aroma is more ’fresh’ and sweet than 666-ish. Also less stale. It has ripe apples, some smoky tones and licorice. Also strong oaty notes. Flavour has oat, cognag, ripe apples, and licorice. Feels a bit old and moldy. Not bad still, more mellow and less aggressive than 666.

Alengrin (1258) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Specialty version of the renowned Hel & Verdoemenis, wood-aged. Sticky beige head, black colour; complex, powerful and appealing aroma of coffee, fondant, toasted bread, dried plums, cognac, caramel; thick malty taste, chocolatey, soft carbonation, strong and assertive roasted bitterness, very mouth-filling, oily, with warming, brandy-like alcohol in the finish that never becomes disturbing. Very big, very well-balanced, very exciting Molen beer.

brystmar (1237) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle of b3 thanks to kraddel. Pitch black pour sprouts tan head, leaves some lace on my glass.

Aroma of caramel, deeply roasted malts, burnt sugars, booze, black licorice. Smooth and creamy body delivers the deliciousness to my palate. Decadent; boozy warmth massages my throat as I swallow. Really good.

rxeight (1292) - Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2014
12oz bottle, another thanks to Erik, my euro hookup. Deep dark brown. Subtile cognac aroma. Taste is cognac, dry oak, euro malt. Very low sweetness. Dry finish. Smooth with no heat. Quite good, although not sure if I’d put it in the top 100.

TXBadger (1345) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Pours black like oil with tan head, but not much. Wood (oak?), cognac, chocolate, and some roasted malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes sweet and malty.
