olio (5261) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2012
33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere.
Pours deep dark red, almost black color with no head. Aroma of very strong whiskey, dark malts, some chocolate and cocoa and mild wood and vanilla notes. Flavour of whiskey, malts, cocoa, vanilla and hints of coffee. More like a whiskey than a beer.

lusikka (5325) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2012
330 ml bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. BBE 06/2015.
Pours a dark brown, black colour without a head. Aroma is really intense; tar, smoked wood and peat. Flavour of strong smoked wood, peat, salty licorice, burnt malts and whisky after a while. Mellow sweet toffee in the back. Full bodied, oily smooth mouthfeel and a warming smoky finish where the whisky dominates. Heavy stuff and works well for me.

Very dark, dark brown head. Aroma and taste very peaty. Lots of whiskey in this one, more than in any other BA stous by Emelisse. Wood is als o very present. Other imperial stout elements like chocolate, coffee and roasted malts are harder to find, although there is quiet some bitter chocolate in the aftertaste. But as a huge whiskey fan (and Ardberg being one of my favorites) I really enjoy this beer! Body is good, carbonation relatively high, that might have been a bit smoother.

I wasn’t a big fan of all the band-aid and hospital room aromas. It overpowered the nose and taste for me. Dark brown pour. Just decent.

daknole (8537) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Bottle from Ober. Thanks! Black pour, brown head. Nice peaty band aid aroma jumps out followed by some oak, chocolate and roast. Smoke, peat, chocolate, wet oak and tar flavors.

luttonm (2069) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUN 19, 2012
Small bottle from De Bierkoning in Amsterdam. Wow, intense aroma, huge. Salty, pork, bog, rotting grass. Incredible whisky to base this off of, need to find that on its own. Great balanced body for such a strong base beer. Interesting counter to the base RIS which was tasted by its side. Challenging, wonderful.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Black, tan head. Chocolate and beef jerky on the nose – a good amount of peat in here overlaying the cacao and molasses. Flavor is a bit boozier, with the smoke holding out until the end. Not too thick, very drinkable, with a really lovely peat overtone. Really nice – great balance between the peat and sweetness of the underlying stout.

Huubs (142) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 16, 2012
De geur doet denken aan smeulende eikenhouten snippers met koffie en een beetje chocola. De kleur is koffiezwart met een kleine bruine kop doe snel verdwijnt. Qua smaak is het een complex biertje met een lichte koolzuur aanwezigheid, koffie, chocola en een klein beetje zuur van grapefruit. Leuk en bijzonder om te drinken, maar een keer is genoeg. Aldus Huubs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tmrmwel (756) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours very dark, almost black, with a very little but coloured creamy head. Aroma is definitely smoky, with notes of burned malts, peat, BA oak and some sweet toffee thrown in. The body is full and oily, with a very soft carbonation. Flavour is nice and dark with chocolate, liquorice and coffee. Nice finish.

Vaiz (3140) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 9, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2012 Bottle at home. Black pour, thin dark brown head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is harsh, ashy, roasted, iodine, medicinal and wet sigar indeed. Flavor is even more wet sigar, very ashy and with tar. Quite offensive brew. Out of balance. Still unique and intriguing.
