Abijen (1540) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - MAY 1, 2014
Pours a pitch black beer with a slowly growing tan brown head. Beautiful. Smells paint, peated, roasted, ash and coffee. Tastes chocolate, coffee bitter, peated, roasted. Nice! Low carbo, medium to thick body and an oily texture.

Douberd (2620) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a snifter. ABV 11% as the others. Pours a pitch black beer, with a small and thin dark brown head, mostly consisting of big bubbles, but with great retention. Aroma of whiskey, peat, roasted malts and coffee, a bit of alcohol. Taste is once again great, lots of roasted malts and their light bitterness, vanilla, light alcohol but in general very well hidden, whiskey, a bit of smoke on the finish. Full body, low carbonation, sticky on the palate. Another well done from Emelisse.

DwarfeD (1163) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2014
33cl bottle from BierNavigatie. Dark brown (almost black) with a small tan head. Full body with light to moderate carbonation. Sweet with some coffee and herbal tones. Coffee, chocolate, brown sugar, caramel, wood, herbs, warming alcohol and dark fruits. A woody imperial stout with a nice whiskey vibe.

Garlic_of_Doom (488) - SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a fizzy creamy head, rests down to a ring. Aroma has peat, smoke cigar, slight alcohol Taste is sweet up front followed by peat, cigar roasted malt, slight hop bitterness. Full bodied, low carbonation, thick mouth feel. Peaty, smokey after taste.
Sure, the barrel ageing takes a bit over hand but hey, I love peaty stouts. :)

Maarten1993 (377) - - JUL 9, 2014
Drank in Tilburg 08-07-2014. Good beer. Hardly any carbonation. Smells like oak/roasted and smoke (strong smoke). Different BA taste than normal, hardly any sweetness or bourbon hints. Very complex taste of dark chocolate, coffee, slightly roasted, smoke and a lot of other flavors that I can’t name very good. Nice.

sebletitje (6924) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2011
Sample kindly of Kees, headbrewer @ Emelisse. Holy smoke, this beer rocks! This beer might have reconciled me with Islay peated beers. Brune foncée laissant une fine pellicule dorée sur le verre. Arôme de tourbe et Speyside gardant aussi ce bouquet de stout, chocolat et malt grillé avec une légère torréfaction. En bouche, pas mal de tourbe et cendre, alcool réchauffant avec en retrait une douceur agréable de malt grillé et caramel aux notes de café. Je ressens aussi une présence de fleur presque de bruyère le tout gardant ce côté cendre.

33 cL bottle. Pours pitch black with a small to no head. Aroma is tarish and burne dark malty. Sweet malty, tarish and dark roasted malty flavoured. Dry and roasted malty finish, lasting tarish note.

Travlr (13514) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Draft. Dark maroon color, small but thick brown head. Aroma of vanilla, coffee grounds, rich dark cocoa, whiskey. Taste is vanilla, dark chocolate, coffee. Complex and characterful. Nice stuff.

Countbeer (4755) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAY 12, 2012
Botte: Medium fluffy tan head, disappears slow and leaves a sticky foam on the glass and vast tan lacing on top of a black colored beer. Smell glue, wood glue, whiskey tones, hint of sharper plastic and hints of coffee, cream and vanilla. Taste lots of earth, some roasted barley malts, bitter, light creamy sweet tints, wood, tar, wood lactose bacteria, hint of clay, woody herbs, some chocolate. A bit weak aftertaste of earth, medium bitter, some bitter chocolate and roasted herbs/hops. Low carbo, soft oily mouthfeel, full body and a creamy oily texture. This beer is ok, maybe a bit out of tune, but guess that they have to figure out how long to add these Imperial Stouts to such specific barrels.
