caesar (6812) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 10, 2013
Tap @ de Molen. Dark color, short brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolat, dry oak wood, some coffee. Full bodied, creamy texture. Big malty taste, quite sweet, medium bitter, slight dry. The oak chips came through a bit too much, or perhaps the Dutchsky gives it a woody touch as well. Not my favorite, as Im a sucker for bourbon. Still, wonderful beer.

tiong (6708) - Espoo, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
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.

Borresteijn (6628) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 30, 2013
33cl Bottle from De Molen Beershop. Black colour, light-brown head. Aroma of loads of booze in the beginning, bourbon, sweet soy sauce, hard roasted - ashy - malts, molasses, coffee, chocolate. Flavour is sweet, less boozy than expected apart from the slight burn in the finish, bourbon, oak, soy sauce, molasses, coffee, hard roasted malts, firm bitter roasted malts in the finish. Full-bodied. Good, just a touch from great. This one really needs to mellow out a bit more imho, although I usually like RISs fresh.

PhillyCraft (6448) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Bottle smuggled from Netherlands as a gift care of Kermis shared with Jeano. Pours sinful black with small head that didnt hang around for too long. Notes of bakers chocolate, rich barrel, caramel, tons of licorice and an impressive malt/hop bill. Has some nice bitterness mixed into the decadent roasty dark notes. Long lasting and warming in the chest. Cheech ahh

Countbeer (6284) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2013
Bottle: The number of this Beast is 0049: Dark brown to black pour. Medium sized, vast, slowly changing, light sticky brown foamy head on top of a black colored beer. Aromas of porridge, some chocolate, some liquorice, light roast, liquor, light whiskey (and lighter cognac) notes, hint of berries, hints of marzepin, filled chocolate, light tar ish tones, grass and floral. A well balanced herbal floral barrel aged roasted mix. Flavours of dry liquor and dry roast, some (dry) liquorice, plant extracts, spices, alcohol, bitter, some chocolate and some cacoa, figs, coal, tabacco, some berries, parfume, oil, tar, chalk, some wood burn/roast and ash. Balanced. Aftertaste is plant extract roast, bitter, grass, liquorice, malt roast, light porridge and tabacco. Low carbo, soft silky mouthfeel, full body and an oily texture. Decent beer, but theres something strange with this beer. Is it the liquor, the dryness or the spicy bitter tones.. Or is it a mix of all these things? But its soft and smooth.. After a time breathing it all becomes even better balanced. Good beer!
