Thanks to bierkoning for that one. Bottle looks interesting. Beer in the glass brownish, nice head. Starts strong, fine malty spicy, intense note of nuts. Finish a bit unbalanced, spicy and woody. Nice one.

33cl Bottle from Mitra Rokin. Dark brown colour with a tiny red hue, off-white creamy head. Aroma is very earthy, hazelnut shells, fibres, sweet dark malts, tiny hint of chocolate. Flavour is medium-sweet, very earthy again, like drinking dry earth, nutshells, hazelnut, chocolate, cocoa, hint of dark fruits, light bitter finish. Medium-bodied at best, soft mouthfeel.

Aroma of caramelized hazelnuts. The are some nice dark malty, sweet falvours but the hazelnuts are maybe a bit green. This gives an aftertaste which reminds me of broad beans!

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Nice chocolate aroma which turns into a less earthy aroma. A brown color with steady light brown foam. Taste is okay, some sweet which is followed by a small bitter. Overall the tatste is just not that full and catchy. The carbonation is soft which makes it a bit weak in my opinion.
Overall I expected more from it, i know Emelisse has some great beers. But for the season Autumn (netherlands) it was a nice tasting experience (and my first post on Ratebeer :-)).

Bottle @ home. Hazy brown with a light brown head that doesn?t last long. Smells some alcohol, some wood, slightly sweet, bit chemical. After a while the taste improves and you can smell what you taste. Tastes way better then expected! Coffee, vanilla, dark chocolate, slightly roasty, red fruits, bourbon. Amazing taste. Great beer. Medium body, soft carbo.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A clear brown colored beer, with a thick foamy beige head. The aroma of fruits with caramel, hints of chocolate with notes. The taste of caramel with some fruits, hazelnut, with hints of chocolate. The aftertaste is sweet with some bitter. IMO the best of the 3 notenbocks.
