500ml bottle, batch 666, received from OleR in April 2014, many thanks. Stored in my cellar and finally shared at a session with djoeye and Finn. Decent fawn-coloured head covering a dark ruby coloured body. Spotty lacework. Inviting aromas of dried fruits and brown malts. Good taste of red and black berries, raisin, caramel and dark fruit. Jam-like impression. Welcome roasted malty bitterness to the ending joined by warming heat from the alcohol. Full bodied. Well made sipper (Tromsø 01.02.2016).

Finn (5580) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 2, 2016
Flaske 500ml - batch 666 - spandert av Ole Richard. Delt med djoeye og Rune i WCveien 1 Feb 15. Rødbrun. Lavt skum. God fruktaroma - på grensen til sherry. Smaken sammensatt. Svisker & mandler. Søt. Farlig lett-drikkelig. Alkoholen merkes ikke. Et utmerket øl.

Look; fawny top, rosewood rose clear body. Aroma; sweet fruit basket, cherries maybe. Taste; powerful but sweet malts, caramels, candies - finishes with the fruity malts. Palate; slightly dry. Overall; jammy tasty. [Btl@Session w Rune&Finn, BB.18.2.17 #666]

ferryman72 (52) - NORWAY - JAN 16, 2016
Dark brown, no head. Strong aroma of hay, nuts, toast, resin, dough etc... Sweet and heavy taste with plenty alcohol. Long palate with a thick feel, long finish. Best with spicy or heavy foods like stews, burgers and such.

Derbeth (589) - Kraków, POLAND - JAN 14, 2016
Bottle. Dark brown colour, hazy, minimal head. Intensive aroma of dried fruit, raisin, alcohol does not disturb. Medium bitterness. Very good, but not my favourite from Haandbrygeriet.

rami_pl (1085) - Warszawa, POLAND - JAN 3, 2016
butelka, warka 666 ;) ciemny bursztyn z niewysoka ale niebrzydka piana. aromaty ciemnych owocow, opiekane, slodowo-chlebowo-zbozowe, troche jakichs krzaczasto-łąkowych. w ustach w sumie dosc delikatne, jest ewidentna slodowosc, jest ziolowa i przyprawowa goryczka i posmak. Bardzo nietypowe BW, ale calkiem przyzwoite. choc raczej fanem nie zostane

mariuspoenari (439) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2016
50cl bottle. Pours a muddy ruby-brown with a sticky head. Heavy smell of maple syrup, caramel and red grapes. Sweet notes of bourbon. Tastes of caramel and maple syrup, dark cherries, red grapes and hop bitterness.

VT (2233) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 31, 2015
500 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy ruby reddish brown-orange with a resilient beige head. Aroma is fruits, caramel, cereals. Flavor is caramel, roasted cereal, red berries. Finish is booze, caramel. Lingering red berries and booze. Full body, creamy, velvety mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Just a tad bit too boozy for my tastes...
