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 !

Vells (925) - Riga, LATVIA - MAY 4, 2015
Thanks to Zenkis! 2+ yrs cellaring. Quite a treat! Starts quite subtle, but bold on nose with a mix of old leather and vanilla, roastiness. Over time changes aroma to more intense roasty level. Smooth roasted malt presence boosted by nice cocoa, vanilla, light oakiness from BA. Mostly sweet with light bitterness. Enjoyable brew.

Holmen1 (3305) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 16, 2015
Fra flaske på RBHD-samling på Fridtjofen april-15: takk til Asle Bjørn som sørget for at vi avsluttet med solid ganglag for sjelen. Svart, med brunt skum som varte og varte. Vidunderlig kompleks og avrundet aroma og smak, perfekt karbonert og supersmud munnfølelse. Kaffe, kaffe og kaffe, med innspill av mørk sjokolade, vanilje, molasse og bourbon. Skål og god natt.

White label provided by Rob the emperical mastermind. White label. Consumed at Rustende Jager lobby whilst watching the sleet storm. Big ol mamba jamba. Black on black with just a ring of foam on top, tight to the glass. Plums are centraal. There, that’s me getting my language on. Surrounded.on each side is a crap load of dark goodness bolstered by an obscene ration of black patent malt. I like it. I do like it a lot. Bring it on sleet storm....
