JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2011
Tap at RNH. Pitch black pour with a thin head. The nose is lightly earthy with a bit of heavily roasted malt. Rich with a lot of black pepper toward the finish. The beer is chewy and rich but it’s not cloying or over the top. A little bit of rich leathery character. Dry cocoaish character toward the finish along with an assertive roastiness. Earthy hop bitterness toward the finish. Intense but tasty.

Defreni (2841) - Husum, DENMARK - JAN 22, 2011
Flaske: Kulsort motorolie flyder udaf flasken. Flot mokkabrunt skumhoved og en dejlig brændt duft gør at her ved du at der er kvalitet. Smagen er meget typisk amerikansk imperial stout, men den holder sig også indenfor sikkerhedens grænser. Med 11% er dette ikke så svært så helt oppe at ringe er man ikke over øllen, men den er da bestemt et besøg værd.

330 ml bottle. Black beer with a thin bron head. Sweet, roasted malty aroma with coffee, chocolate and a whiff of dark fruit. Roasted flavour of coffee, liquorice, chocolate, dark fruit and a little alcohol warmth. Very pleasant.

RexTalionis (3015) - FINLAND - JAN 21, 2011
Bottle 33 cl. Poured black colour with beige head. Aroma is a blend of sweetness, licorice and roasted coffee. Flavour is roasted coffee with some slight bitterness. Also salty licorice taste. Thick and oily mouthfeel.

tiong (4726) - Espoo, FINLAND - JAN 19, 2011
330ml bottle from Alko Arkadia

Pours black with massive and foamy tan head. Great aroma, roasty and has hints of chocolate and coffee. Taste is a bit too sweet for my taste, but has a very nice roasted palate. Great, but a bit unbalanced imperial stout.

Well balanced beer, slightly on the bitter side. Starting to get convinced that Emelisse is one of the 5 best breweries in the country.

rateyourpoison (198) - chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 8, 2011
12oz btl. Pours inky with a foamy brown head. Nose of rich chocolate malt, light licorice and raisin, a hint of alcohol. Great full bodied creamy mouthfeel. Smooth rich chocolate and marshmellow. Sweet nd rich but not agressively so or stomach churning. A little hop spice towards the end to balance out the smooth malt. Finish is a touch bittersweet and booze, but 11% masked well. Delicious, would love to ry h bowmore aged.
