Dark brown with mocca colored head. Has a deep burnt hoppy bitter flavor rounded off with some fruity sweetness. Has a dry burnt grapefruit finish. Overal itís a bit too bitter and burnt flavored to my taste, but has a nice body and flavor profile making it still tasty nonetheless.

Een heel goed bier vol van smaak met prachtige citrus tonen. Niet het allerbeste van Emelisse maar zeker het vermelden waard

tricksta_p (880) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2014
Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, dark chocolate, a little vanilla, light hops. Flavour is quite roasty with a potent hoppy and coffee bitterness in the finish.

SimonBeer (93) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2014
(Drinking date: 21 June 2014) A black beer with no foam. The aroma of this beer is terrible: coconut, vanilla, sweet sugar, citrus, hops. This aroma is completely misplaced for this kind of beer. The taste is also citrus, with bitter coffee and chocolate, and a sweetness of sugar. A little bit of sourness in the aftertaste. The body of this beer is a bit too watery, with flat to medium carbonation. I want it to be more sticky and soft. It is strange, the normal version of this beer is one of my favourite beers of all time, but this beer is really awfull. This type of hop (citrus hop) is completely misplaced for this type of beer. Thatís why I give it the total score of 2.4 unfortunately.

mcberko (5941) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 17, 2014
330mL bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is very hoppy and hugely roasted. Flavour is extremely robust, with shitloads of roasted malt, a signficant hoppy punch, and burnt coffee grounds. Over the top roasted, which makes this a very slow sipper. Good stuff.

DwarfeD (809) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JUN 6, 2014
33cl bottle from ít Drankenhuys. Dark brown with a medium tan head which disappeared pretty quickly. Medium to full body with light carbonation. Dark sweetness with a bitter aftertaste. Roasted malts, coffee, caramel, wood, dark fruits and chocolate. A great full flavoured imperial stout.

Gerbeer (1666) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours black with off white head. Aromas of dill and coffee. Flavors are similar with additional dry cocoa notes. Unique and interesting.

djd07 (3282) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very dark brown with medium frothy tan head that lasts leaving sticky lacing. The aroma is sweet roasted malt with cocoa, dark chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with similar flavors to the nose with nice light booze finish. Very good.

Garlic_of_Doom (394) - SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2014
Bottle, 2012. Black with a small beige head. Aroma has nougat/nuts, dark fruit, cocoa powder/dark chocolate, vanilla. Taste has dark chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruit, sweetness, slight coffee. Full body, soft carbonation, smooth. Slight alcohol heat in the short chocolatey bitter after taste.
Good, smooth, well balanced but nothing that made me jump out of my chair.

Bosbouw (1062) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - MAY 8, 2014
Mooie zwarte kleur met een volle lichtbruine kraag. Ruikt koffie, hop, vanille en iets gerookt. Smaakt lekker bitter, fruitig, hop, chocolade en vanille. Goede bittere nasmaak. Fruitige en bijzondere irs.
