uckelman (648) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Pours opaque black, almost no head. Aroma is berries, peat, the sea, malt. Mouthfeel is thinner than I expected, and a little oily. Strong malt on finish. I don’t know the whiskey, so I can’t comment on how it affects the flavor, but the flavor is excellent.

sarauckelman (420) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Dark, chocolaty aroma and appearance. Complex on the front, disappears from the mouth quickly except for some lingering heat. Hard to taste beer in it though.

MOARBEER (94) - WALES - NOV 18, 2012
Pours pitch black with absolutely zero head. Looks like flat Cola. Quite sweet and mega oily mouthfeel. Not much barrel. So far my least favorite of the Emelisse white label BA. The laphroaig BA was far superior.

n0mel (250) - FINLAND - OCT 26, 2012
(From notes 25 Oct, 2012) Bottle. Practically no head. The beer is almost pitch black. Aroma is sweet and wineish. Flavor toward a sweet soy sauce. Mouthfeel is watery, i.e. low viscosity, does not feel smooth/creamy as many others do. Finish is a alcoholic warming bitterness.

I realized while drinking this beer that I had a slight cold. I was not able to get the full experience. I suspect I would give this one a higher score when my left nostril actually lets air flow through it properly.
