Maybe the brewers of Emelisse and De Molen should sit around the table and talk about one of them (Molen) has so much gushers and beers with huge massive heads, and the other one (Emelisse) hasn’t got an imperial stout with a decent head.... So, i’d love to see more head on the Emelisse stouts. The beer in taste and body is very nice. Full-bodied, with an ok amount of carbo, and nice roasted malts, bitter chocolate and coffee. Nothing really special for an imperial stout, but still a very good beer.

2010 Vintage (probably from the early 2010’s) 33 cl. bottle @ home – brought back for me from Braai Tapperij de Mug in the Netherlands: pours a very slightly Bordeaux hued black with a very quickly disappearing mocha head, soon you are left with nothing, heavy prune syrup upfront, dark fruits (incl. plums), creamy hazelnuts, sweet but also bitter due to heavily roasted malts, touch of liquorish, slightly sour berries, gets slightly less syrupy towards the finish, revealing a slight vinous sourness mixed with Porto characteristics, warming, even almost alcoholic on the nose, nose mostly follows taste, somewhat thick-seeming but not really thick syrup accompanied with not much carbonation, nice one

bottle - Pours black and smells of chocolate, licorice, and coffee. The flavor is of sweet roasted malt with the characteristics of the aroma blending together well in the taste. It’s very thick and full bodied with some underlying alcohol noticeable. Extremely good brew.

kerolasa (409) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2011
Pitch black, malty coffee smell. Quite sour taste. Dry, dry stout even to be imperial style. There are plenty of aromas, birch, nuts, bread, basement, earth, even a bit smokiness. To me this could be better if this would be just a tiny bit more sweet. BTW I did not notice that this beer has 11% before writing this rating, so while begin strong the beer does not give it out easily. That tells something about amount of other malty aromas.

330ml bottle enjoyed on an advent afternoon at Skarven in Tromsø. Oily pour, deep, dark coloured body, bubbly tan-coloured head. Inviting aromatic brew with a good punch of dark malts and dark fruits. Well integrated taste character with a bit of everything, so to speak; coffee, chocolate, liquorice and berries. Dark and dried fruits to the lingering ending. Integrated warming alcohol. Full bodied. A lot of praise for this one and very suitable for the right Yuletide feel (Tromsø, 20.12.2011).

rodenbach99 (3264) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 19, 2011
Bouteille de 330ml. Bière brune très foncée avec une mousse brune peu durable (normal pour une bière à 11,0%). Le nez est peu complexe avec ses effluves de café. Il y a beaucoup de café. En bouche la texture est de moyenne facture, elle est longue et malheureusement il y a une touche poussiéreuse en fin de bouche. La café domine aussi le palais.

nbondi (203) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Dark brown with very little head. Not as viscous as many RIS. Big nose of chocolate, raisins, cola, coffee, vanilla, and slight funk. Earthy and musty in taste. Lightly carbonated with raisins, chocolate, and cough medicine. Lots of flavors, not all working harmoniously. Strange maltiness on finish that doesn’t quite belong.

Bottle. Pours black. Aroma raisins, nuts, plumes. Like a barley wine. Strong palate and a hint of alcohol. Not Bad.
