3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
26th September 2013
Amsterdam. Bottle in my hotel room. Opaque black -brown beer with a decent tan head. Palate is light and airy. Minerally carbonation. Rich dark malt with good rich dark chocolate. Powerful bourbon and bourbon spice. Somewhat tempered by vanilla oak. Finishes soft and rich. Pretty much spot on! Just needs a little time to take the edge off!

Again what a nice beer from Emelisse ! more beers like this and Kees is gonna outdo De Molen !
Lovely rich, dakr roasty and malty imperial stout with the amazingly adding of Wild Turkey Barrels that gives it that extra sweetness, vanilla, and chocolaty flavour, super, even better than the current ( ?! ) H&V Wild Turkey !
