My Bottom Line :
This satiny Imperial Stout’s dark chocolate and coffee sweetness is imbued with blackberry jam fruitiness as roasted bitterness is laced with alcohol in a rich finish.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A rich head of foam covers the pure blackness.
-The soft carbonation and silky residual sugars makes for a deeply satisfying mouthfeel.
-This is not super intense, nor is it mild. It’s perfectly levelled.
-Alcohol may be a tad too present in the aroma for my liking.
-This is another very professional rendering from Emelisse. Looking forward to trying more!

Csak a jó sör, Budapest. Teljesen sötét barna színe van, ami szinte egyáltalán nem enged átlátni magán. Habja tejeskávé színű, vékony, nem túl kitartó, de végig hagy maga után egy tartós csipke nyomot. Illata aszalt gyümölcsös, pörkölt malátás, pipa füstös, élesztős és komlós. Ízében is jönnek ezek az aromák rendesen, de jön még hozzá fekete csokoládé, kávé, likőrös édesség, boróka, vanília és fűszerek. Igen testes, olajos teste van és a magasabb alkohol tartalom is jelen van. Utóíze keserédes, gyógylikőrös és igen száraz, hosszan tartó. Nagyon finom és igen nagy egy sör, amiben igencsak érezni a sok gyantás komlót.

12 ounce bottle thanks to 5000! What a tasty stout. Pruns, sweet malts, chocolate, roasted malts fill the flavor and aroma of this beer. Very tasty, dry finish, and easy to drink. Very nice.

UPDATED: AUG 7, 2012 330 ml bottle @ BAJT. Consumed on January 6. Pours pitch black with a small mocha head that quickly dissipates. Smell is intense and sweet with fudge, chocolate, vanilla, raisins and alcohol. Taste is big with roasted malts, coffee, bitter chocolate, dark fruits, wood, liquorice and alcohol. Finish is bitter with chocolate.

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.
