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 (6946) - 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.

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

Black coloured. Has a light brown head. Heavy dark aroma, phenolic, transformer oil, some dark sweet sugars too.Great. Flavor is heavy sweet, some laqurice, soft, light phenolic notes again, moderate bitter finish, still nice. Syrupy texture.

ShivanDragon (1796) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2014
flesje bij de mitra, zwart met minimale bruine kraag, met een moutig karakter in de aroma ( gebrande- geroostede- en turf/veen mouten). De smaken zijn redelijk zoet, matig tot redelijk bitter, zeer sterke smaken, zwakke fruitigheid, redelijk kruidig. volle body, romig in de mond, lage co2, en een afdronk die kruidig is. Ken de Ardbeg whisky verder niet, maar blijkbaar een enorm turfachtige islay-whisky, dat is iig goed te ruiken en te proeven, behoorlijk complex, de overweldigende turf/veen/teer/rook en as vind ik iets té sterk aanwezig.

Maakun (808) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 30, 2014
Thick, almost black brown, with thin beige film and a few big bubbles. Smoke, berries, burnt toast, mocca mouse, almost bourbon boozyness, port, wood, earthy. Medium sweet bith burnt bitterness. Thick bodied, slick texture, soft carbonation. Biiiig and complex stuff, but it’s slightly too extreme for me.

JefVerstraete (1571) - Ghent, BELGIUM - JAN 27, 2014
Oily black colour, syrupy. Thin head of dark brown foam. Very rich and complex character. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, ardbeg whiskey and peat. Very well balanced between bitterness and some light sweetness. Full of taste. Very good!
