10 ounce tap at Local Option. Somehow Emelisse comes off as both boozy and watery. The smokey taste is very present, but the beer is too light bodied for my tastes in this style, and there isn’t much else other than smokey flavor going on.

0,33l bottle. Hazy brown color with beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is roasted malt, caramel and smoke. Taste is medium bitter. Medium to full body and dry finish. I expected more smokiness in both aroma and taste.

Probablemente la mejor cerveza ahumada que haya probado.
El sabor te trae recuerdos de huno, queso, frutos secos. Espectacular

Bottle 330ml from a trade with Countbeer, thanks Kamiel! Into a snifter, ABV 7%
Dark brown red colour on the body, tan head, almost two fingers tall, good density, good retention. Minimal lacing on the glass.
Aroma is full of smoke at first, with red and dark fruits being traceable on the back.
Taste of smoked meat, peat, dates, dark fruits. Really nice.
Medium thin body, good amount of carbonation.
Overall good beer, as smoked a s a good whiskey. Great.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Beautiful Beers, drunk at home. Light reddish-brown, medium carbonation but not a lot of head. Complex aroma of smoke, chocolate, meat, hints of citrus and sarsaparilla. Taste is a simple but satisfying light bitter with a long bittersweet finish. Aftertaste is more heavily bitter. Thin palette. Lovely beer, maybe slightly too heavy on the alcohol for what it is. Shame this is retired. O Emilesse rauchbier, I hardly knew ye!

Troebel bruin van kleur, kraag zakt redelijk snel weg. Ruikt naar leer, rook, sigaren, bbq spek. Smaakt rokerig , tabak, gebakken spek, mocht wat meer body hebben, de nasmaak zakt wat dunnetjes weg.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, picked up off the shelf three days ago. Pours a cloudy brown color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is definitely smokey, yet has a bit of sweetness (caramel?) underneath; however, the nose is somewhat light, to it’s a tad hard to tell. Taste is slightly bitter and strongly smoke-filled, like there’s a bit of charcoal in there. All in all, not a bad drink, though.
