COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Born out of the depths of hell, Beelzebeer occasionally rears its ugly head in breweries across the land. Whenever Batch #666 occurs, so does a devilishly evil brew - itís embodiment can take on many forms...you hold one of these now. Lucifer was well served by his lieutenant, serving throughout the centuries, willing unassuming souls towards the darkness, towards the inky blackness of this very bottle."

Bottle bought 10/2010 at FS. Which lists the alcohol as 9.5%. Whatís a few points between friends? Retains a nice strong ale nose from the bottle. Light roastiness, turning a little to sugar and just a hint of phenol, so I may have caught this just in time. A black color with a thin tan head, suggesting that should maybe have been listed as Imperial Porter. But tasting it, it does bring up some roast that more fits a stout. But quite mellowed. It has thickened up a bit with its heavy malt. Slight notes of cherry and peat. It even induces me to put an ear to the glass and hear its tiny bubbles fizz away. Worth the wait, but worth opening now, if you got one. Alcohol warmth fills in midway, still buoyed by lots of carbonation bubbles.

BBB63 (5741) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Bottle aged over two years and served in a Duvel snifter which seems quite appropriate: Pours a very deep brown, near opaque with a fading tan head and very good lace, some oily legs as well. The aroma has notes of leather, pipe tobacco, toffee, burnt caramel, sea salt, anise, light smoke and char, some crabapple and raisin fruity esters along with a slightly port like vinous character. Rich dark malts, heavy earthiness and some dark fruits makes this a wonderful Barleywine now that aging has muted the hop character. Touch of molasses and liquorice twang. Slightly oxidized and hint of marzipan and tobacco like found in the classic Barleywines and English Strong Ales. None of those minty notes however, some herbal undertones. Lush and moderate biting mouth feel that would only be improved with a longer lasting finish. WOW, this took to the "cellar" very very well. I am impressed and this far exceeded my expectations.
