ElManana (519) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2014
Pours pitch black with a nice, lasting light-brown head. Aroma of boozy bourbon, malts, toffe, vanilla. Taste more vanilla, sticky and sweet which ends in heavy chocolate and some roastiness. Honestly, this is by far the best Emelisse I’ve had up to date, and I’ve had most.

MarcoDL (2398) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle. Black and oily, with a thick brown head. Delicious aroma of bourbon vanilla. Taste is really amazing. Strong, rich and diverse. Notes of roasted malt, cacao, mocha, boozy vanilla and quite some hopbitters, surprisingly. Even a little fruit, like grape or citrus. This one has everything, world class beer. Every sip is a true joy.

Bottle from De Hopduvel. Oily black colour, dark brown foam. Soft carbonation. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts. Also sweet vanilla from the bourbon but enough roastiness. Bitter finish. Well balanced beer. Good!

33cl bottle at home. Very dark brown with a full off-white head with quite some retention. Full body with low carbonation. Sweet with some bitter tones. Chocolate, bourbon, roasted malts, coffee, brown sugar, vanilla and dark fruits. A more then decent imperial stout from Emelisse.

Osprey87 (2061) - WALES - SEP 16, 2014
Bottle BB June 2018, into a snifter at home. Black, very big foamy brown head endures and leaves some light lacing. Aroma is crayon, smoke, light vanilla, touch of petrol. Body is medium, low carbonation, foaminess makes the body seem bigger. Taste is tangy red berry and vanilla bourbon, dry and woody, salty, touch of chocolate. Finish is musty, breathy. No alcohol coming through. Good beer.
