Ungstrup (29988) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2012

Papsoe (25075) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Courtesy of Countbeer. Pours an opaque black with a thick and creamy light brown head leaving some lacework. Thick and vicious iodine aroma from the peated barrel atop the roasted malts. Rich body, heavy roast, ashtray and again a shitload of nasty iodine and tar. Roasty bitter finish. Another beer that didn’t convince me of the greatness of peated beers. To me it’s really just ruining a great base beer. 240712

Bottled@PBF2012. Pitch black colour, mediumsized brown head. Aroma is peated malts, some smoke as well as mild liquorice and mild herbal notes. Flavour is liquorice, peat and some mild smoked notes. Very balanced and nice mellow Ardbeg flavours (Though the Ardbeg notes are very evident).

omhper (20441) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUL 28, 2012
Bottled at PBF. Black, small beige head. Huge peaty whisky aroma. Sweet and dense, really full bodied. Tar and licorice, loads of Ardbeg whisky. The whisky character is absolutely overwhelming, if it wouldn’t have been Ardbeg it would have been awkward. Now it’s like drinking an Ardbeg diluted in licorice, whish is not a bad thing.

Opaque dark brown beer, small pale tan head. Big TCP nose, not pleasant. Palate is smooth and dry with mild fine carbonation. Smooth semi dry dark malts. Mild alcohol spice. Touch of dry lactose. Dominated by big TCP. Dry finish. TCP lingers on. Way too peaty TCP for me.

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
