CraftBeerNick (889) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2014
Keg at Arendsnest, 28th March 14. Black, nose is whiskey, some peat, a little smoke. Taste is whiskey, lots of peat, bitter, lingering finish. Too much peat for my taste, over powered the other elements I like, such as liquorice and leather, still an enjoyable drink

Bottle@cafe frape. Black no head no carbonation. Fine smooth heavy mouthfeel. Intens phenols. Peat. The bitterness is hidden in the alcohol. Great smokey brew. Lagavulin.

motelpogo (6692) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 5, 2014
bottle shared with mowbeer. about as close to black as possible with a thin sliver of a brown head; aroma of gooey caramel chocolate with a hint of whisky smoke; loads of sweetness, luscious more than sickly, iced doughnuts, some mudcake in the finish.

__Rb81 (188) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours black with a small tan head. Lots of peat and heavy smoke in the aroma. Some alcohol, whiskey tones underneath. Taste is sweet with a lot of smoke, burned sugar, peat, and a bitter, burned, aftertaste. Nice, but a bit too much smoke and peat for my taste.

A brown to black beer, with little to no head. The nose is peat, coffee, alcohol and dry. It is a medium bodied beer, with little carbonation. The taste is dark chocolat with loads of peat. But not much more, a bit disapionting. The aftertaste is peat, salmiak and bitter. Overal not one of the best BA of emelisse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
