langeveld12 (249) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 8, 2013
Pours a small light brown frothy head that mostly diminishes. Body is black. Aroma contains moderate malts (light bread, hay, milk chocolate, coffee, roasted malts), light hops (flowers, pine, lemon), light yeasts (leather) and alcohol (booze), grape, raisin, cherry, pineapple, oak, licorice, cola and spices. Flavor is light acidic, then sweet and bourbon coming up, to finish in bitter and warming alcohol. Body is full and syrupy, carbonation is soft. Fantastic beer full of flavors and aroma's. The Wild Turkey just adds to the fun.

thewolf (11207) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 7, 2013
Bottle, bought @ Voldby Købmandsgård. Pours completely opaque black with a giant, staying, creamy, beige head. A clear 5. Aroma has sweet vanilla, roasted malts, soft tar and smoke, nuttiness. Overall really like pleasant. Medium to low carbonation, fine creamy and elegant dryness. Flavour is amazingly balanced, dark chocolate aplenty, vanilla, light roasted. No tar in the flavour. Light vinious and warming. Just really amazing.

Maakun (751) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 2, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2013 Black with small dark brown head. Espresso, berries, leather, vanilla, wood. Later more boozy and chocolate. Thick and sweet, but with a tart truity touch and a burnt-bitter finish. Medium to thick mouth, this is really for sipping. Slightly syrupy. Light carbonation. Very good.

Bosskie (440) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2013
Pitch black with light surface carbonation and yeast flakes floating around. Weak dark brownish head. Smell is subtle. Starts with coal and burnt wood with a fleshy creaminess to it, almost like eggs. Then find nuts, resin and roasted coffee. Pine trees. Taste is seriously full. Starts off with a grassy bitterness which sweetens slightly before moving on to a sort black burnt meat bitterness. Oily and sticky. The whiskey is there but subtle and well balanced.

JulienHuxley (3344) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2013
Bottle from Bierkoning. Opaque black pour with creamy brown head. Aroma is quite interesting, rich whisky notes, light peat, light soy, definitely something umami going on here, leather, chocolate, salted licorice. Taste is actually quite saline, salted licorice, dark chocolate, bitter, salty and sweet, pretty much in that order, strong roasty finish, very intense. Palate is not overly sweet, good body, nice alcohol warmth with medium carbonation. A bit too rich perhaps for my taste, but still quite enjoyable.

skortila (4592) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2013 Bottled. Full 33cl sample. The aroma has nice tones of chocolate and vanilla. Black coloured beer with a nice beige-brown head. The taste is initially sweet and evolves with more bitterness, slightly astringent in the end. It has chocolate, roast, wood. Bit boozy in the aftertaste. The beer feels a bit unbalanced, however initial taste is really nice.
Rerate 12/31/2013. Original rating 3.6. Another full 33cl sample. This time I experienced much more balance. This even might be one of Emelisse’s best so far. As far as I have tasted of course. ;-)

33 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with a tiny bit of sediment and a tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are vanilla, bourbon, chocolate, and roasted malt – with a slightly bitter finish.
