bottle at de molen festival ... deep dark roast ... big whiskey ... deep dark roast nose ... dark malts ... big chocolate roas... dark roast ... again too much whsikey ... but solid chololate ... mix this with some non ba and it could be a winner.

MaartenRF10 (1711) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2011
Donkerbruin bijna zwart bier met kleine bruine kraag. Wat duidelijk overheerst in de smaak is "peat" zoals het etiket al aangeeft. Rook, turf, mout, whiskey, met bittere nasmaak. Het is een heerlijk, sterk bier dat net een beetje diepgang en nuances in de smaak mist om een echte topper te zijn. Maar gezien de prijs/kwaliteit verhouding gaat deze zeker vaker in de kast terechtkomen.

33cl, as Emelisse Imperial Russian Stout (with sticker ’PEATED’), new exclusive Dutch brew Anno 2011, from De Bierkoning Amsterdam, complex smoked Stout, roasted and slightly bitter/fruity, not too heavy, very balanced, hazy, nearly no head, very good brew, yet expensive!
