Countbeer (6221) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2011
Draft @ PWBF’11: Very small bubbly white lacing on top of a hazy orange colored beer. Smell barleys, sweets, malts, fruit and spices. Soft and smooth mix of barleys, sweets, malts, fruits and a hint of wood. Full body, low carbo, soft mouthfeel. Very well balanced.

Bottle at ACBF 2011. Hazy orange pour. Aroma of whiskey, peat and fruits. Flavor is iodine, peat, malts and sugars. Very nice complexity.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2011
Draft @ Emelisse 27/12/2011 as Xmas Bowmore BA. Orange brumeuse, col est beige crémeux. Arôme de grains avec le profile de Bowmore restant plus en retrait le tout donnant une pointe de cendre et tourbe assez modéré. le tout garde un beau profile sucré malté et caramel. Dommage car le bouquet de Bowmore reste trop discret. En bouche, malt épais, avec une légère présence boisée/fumée avec ce profile tourber et cendre des whisky Islay. Caramel léger et malt grillé, le tout assez doux avec une petite pointe de sucre sur les lèvres. La barrique de Bowmore est agréable, ce qui est bien pour un style de whysly que j’essaie de plus apprivoiser. Would be nice to see how it ages.

Sweet and full bodied barley wine. The bowmore gives it a little more depth. but it isn’t my favorite spirit for aging.

Ober (2812) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2011
Bottle @ ACBF 2011. A hazy dark amber colored beer, with a white head. The aroma of fruits, apricot, wood, whisky with sweets. The taste has wood notes some bitter vanilla fruity and sweet. The aftertaste is bitter with sweet.

skortila (5334) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 26, 2011
@ PWBF 2011. The aroma has caramel, orange, wood, whisky. Red-orange coloured beer with no head. The taste is sweet, light bitter, has medicin, oranges, some caramel, toffee. Bit sticky. Well bodied and belly warming. Nice one.

Benzai (14259) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2011
Smell is not the best, at least not what I like. Tastes sort of ’friendly’, soft and ripe. Very nice finish, very nice body and very nice carbonation.

caesar (6678) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2010
Tap @ in de Wildeman. Did Emelisse buy a bowmore barrel and put every beer he created afterwards on this barrel?? Well, it does pay out. Sweet malty taste, hoppy. Decent amount of bowmore notes, but not overwhelming. Gives that nice little edge to the beer to make it better.

Clear amber with a nice white head. A lighter barley wine with defined charred notes that overshaddowed it a bit. The flavors of the barley wine become easier to taste after a few sips. Notes: On tap at the Alvinne CBF
