Dedollewaitor (13677) - Odense, DENMARK - AUG 21, 2012
Bottle @ The 5th Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg, 2012. Pours black with bubbles on top. Salty and extremely peated nose and flavor. Whisky, booze and peat. How to completely ruin a fine beer.

rlgk (10061) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle at Mumsig Miniprovning, Göteborg. Black beer with a very small beige head. Peated aroma, smoke, whiskey, tar, cocoa, dust, some licorice. Smoked flavor, bad coffee, peat, soot. Floral notes, but most of all soot and smoke. Way too much, hiding all other potential flavors.

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle from Ober. It pours very dark mahogany with tan like head of foam. The aroma is full and rich as it pulls up some band-aid and car tire store but also a mild level of chocolate and dark roasted malts in the background. The taste is similar with a mix of rich chocolate and dark roasted malts and then running quickly into band-aid and some mild smokiness. It ends with lingering chocolate goodness and thin rings of dark roasted malts that help urge you on to take another sip.

Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma has notes of peat, wood and roasted malt. Taste is medium to heavy sweet and light to medium bitter with a long peat, roasted finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is flat.

UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 On tap at HaandFestival 2012. A black one, topped by a dense, dark beige to tan head. The aroma has generous amounts of peat, as well as roasted malts, some coffee and a touch of iodine. A bit too heavy on the peat I think. The flavor feels a bit more balanced, there’s still a solid dose of peat, but there’s more room left for roasted malts, coffee and the bitterness. Full-bodied, sticky-sweet, warming and lightly bitter. Although too heavy on the whisky, it’s a nice beer, but I know several other Emelisse beers I’d rather have. Rating: 7-5-7-4-15-3.8. 120504

Bottle. Looking clear in the glass, dark brown in color and with some beige bubbles on top. Quite oily. Very peaty nose with roasted malts and some licorice. Too peaty I think, and that goes for the rather boozy flavor too. Some medicine notes. Lasting peated finish. Full-bodied, oily and warming on the palate. Too much on the peaty side I think, but far from bad. 120817
