OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 18, 2012
0.33 L bottle. Pours a ruby-edged near black body. A few beige fish-eyes on top only. Sweet alcohol-soaked dark dried fruits to the nose. Some rounded barrel notes too, and a whiff of licorice and whisky liqueur. Almost no carbonation. More than medium full. Chewy texture. Sweet-flavored with well roasted and rounded dark malts. Lots of whisky flavor, light barrel notes, and a good deal of dark dried fruits. Notes of licorice and coffee/chocolate. ’’Easy drinking’’ for such a big beer. Nice all over!

Beer5000 (5900) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 11, 2012
Sampled @ HaandBryggeriet Beer festival 2012. A black body with a small beige head. Nice and strong aroma of dark malt, whisky, coffee and some peat. Flavor is sweet and bitter, dark malt, whisky, coffee, dry fruit and warming alcohol. The whisky is clearly represented but not overwhelming. Full body and long aftertaste. Nice one.

lusikka (7689) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2012
330 ml bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. BBE 06/2015.
Pours a dark brown, almost black colour with a small foamy head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, salty licorice and cream. Flavour of roasted malts, strong salty licorice, caramel, wood and minerals. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, dry, salty, roasty finish. Not much flavours from the barrel. Strong saltiness is still present as on the original Emelisse IRS.

laiti (8069) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 27, 2012
33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, BBE 12/2015
Aroma has lots of licorice, some salt and peat. Flavour is rather salty with some peat, licorice and hints of coffee. Also some woody notes. Dry finish. Good, the whiskey is not too stinging here.

jesperhammer (4175) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 22, 2012
16-JUN-2012, draft @Un Mare di Birra. Black with lasting tan and lacing head. Very smokey nose with tar and burned malt. Shipwreck smell:-) Really tared, butned and extremely smoked. A vanilla-bourbon-oak-thing under the smoke. Creamy with long smoked finish.

MaartenRF10 (1864) - Wageningen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 19, 2012
Dark brown, creamy brown head. Best BA by Emelisse I’ve tasted so far. All aspects of the taste are very well balanced and moderate, mild roasted malts, some coffe and chocolate (both not bitter). Smooth body, soft carbo.

GothGargoyle (2350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2012
Deep black with no head. Aroma is licorice, oak, whiskey. Full bodied, slightly slick on the palate, no noticeable carbonation, slightly boozy finish. Taste is whiskey, licorice, chocolate, dates. Nice but a little boozy, should improve with age.
