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.

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 (93) - BELGIUM - 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.

Bottled@omhper. Black colour, small brown head. Aroma is fudge, toffee, caramel, some liquorice as well as mild whiskyish notes. Flavour is liquorice, toffee, mild tart wood, vanilla and some slight notes of alcohol. Smooth and rather balanced.

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.

MrHangover (2766) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle. Jet black color, beige head. Balanced aroma with whisky notes. Very nice balanced. Not too much whisky but it stays nice in background. Very nice!

Vaiz (3568) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle @ tasting. Black pour. Aroma is subtle whiskey, well hidden in loads of roasted malts, nuts, caramel, vanilla, sugar, chocolate. Flavor is sweet chocolate, bread, vanilla and tobacco. Slightly warming finish. Really well balanced. Great aging.

magdalar (513) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - OCT 8, 2012
A wonderful concoction. Smells sweet, with molasses and a hint of toffee. Tastes very sweet, with a small bitterness, and a feeling of honey. Some dark berries, a black currant perhaps. Texture is silky. Mildly cloying finish. Very little carbonation. I could drink this as a desert for quite some time...
