Bottle n. 0679 from the De Molen shopTheydon_Bois (20484) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2013
Black color with generous head. The aroma is initially very nice with a whiskey impression, but less interesting later with a vinous touch along dusty and milky roasted malts. Good body strength and smooth mouthfeel, not thick; strong flavor of roasted malts, some dry dark chocolate shavings, and a pleasant whiskey character; strong bitterness, and the alcohol too is quite strong; evident liquorice in the end.
Excellent as usual.
Bottle at Bruce’s pad, cheers to our host, 31/07/13. #0079.
Very dark mahogony brown with a medium sized tan head.

Roasted chocolate flavor, whiskey, woody, plums, raisins, peat, vanilla, hay, caramel, prunes, tar, licorice, cocoa powder, warming alcohol, some raisins. Roasted finish with whiskey, wood, raisins and alcohol. Yes, I have had better 666-versions. Yes, this beer will improve with time. But still its a great beer.
New rating, on tap at Mikkeller Bar in december 2013. Same flavors, but more mature. This beer has gained on being on keg for 8-10 months. mcberko (18583) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
12 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark mahogany with a small beige head. Aroma brings out notes of bourbon, spiciness, and roast. Flavour seems off a bit, with notes of cough syrup, other medicinal notes and light barrel notes. Something seems badly wrong here - how is this in the 100th percentile? Decent, but lacking. chrisv10 (18226) - DENMARK - JUN 25, 2015

Bottle, 33cl. A black one, topped by a dense, dark beige head. The aroma has chocolate, coffee, some alcohol notes, booze actually, and a light roasted touch. There’s some bitterness in the flavor, of the hoppy kind, as well as chocolate, coffee, some roasted malts and booze. It’s warming and full-bodied on the palate, with a soft and pleasant carbonation level. Lasting roasted and lightly boozy finish. Overall, too warming, but sure tasteful. 140207 Benzai (16569) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2013
