caesar (5295) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - APR 27, 2013
Bottled, almost a year old. Dark color, short brown head. Aroma is of a good RIS: chocolat, roasted malts, molasses. The sorachi ace brings some minty freshness to it, actually a wonderful combination. Balancing is very delicate here I guess, so might be at the perfect age at the moment. Did I see they tried a coconut version of this one as well? I can imagine the mix, as the hops give it a coconutty feel as well. In taste there’s a wonderful mix of sweet biscuity malt and robust chocolat, with a velvet blanket of mint on top. Stunningly good. Just the right amount of sweetness for me. I remember I tried this beer fresher as well and then the minty notes of the sorachi ace were a bit too present in the aroma and bitterness. But with a small year of developing, it’s absolutely amazing.

Light sweet, quite bitter flavour, light hops, bit fruity, cacao, lots of liquorice, laurierdrop, some vanilla coming up. Very creamy. Full body, finish coffee, liquorice, chocolate and vanilla. Light hops shining through.
Great brew!

subcombicio (167) - Marghera, ITALY - APR 1, 2013
Buonissima abbinata tra una eccezzionale imperial stout e una dose di luppolo sorachi che si equilibra in modo perfetto con il gusto intenso del malto. Questo luppolo dà una nota burrosa alla birra che la rende unica nel suo genere.

Nice one Bubbermannn. My favourite Emelisse beer. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, roasted, chocolate, coffee, light to moderate hoppy, grass. Flavour is quite sweet and bitter, finish flavour is the other way around witha long duration.
