Bottle from Bierkoning. Dark black body with thinnest head. Nose of molasses, caramel, sweets. Taste is stoutlike with lots of malts and molasses. Sweet texture. Quite an enjoyable stout. The Jack Daniels kicks in at the finish. Well done.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Small off white creamy bubbly half open lacing on top of an almost black beer with a brown edge. Smell poo, mint, ash, liquor, liquorice, coal. Taste green grass, old liquorice, mint, light roasted malts, herbs, some hops, mint branches and some light light oak. Grassy roasted hoppy mint ish aftertaste. Low carbo, soft light watery texture, medium to full body and a light creamy ish texture. Looks like this beer fell into a barrel with mint. Damn! Guess I tasted a bad bottled version...

The Jack Daniels is present and gives great taste to this beer. This is an Emelisse White Label winterstout so talking about all the other things seems like a waste to me.
At the Winterbier festival in Gouda, 2012.

Sampled @ PINT Winterbierfestival, Gouda 2012. Pitch black colored beer with a slightly brown lacing on top. Smell burned malts and clearly wood. Taste roastyness, burned malts, whiskey, slightly alcohol. Full flavoured, good mouthfeel. Medium carbonation, full body. Lovely!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small, tannish head over black beer with brown lining. End of bottle fully yeast-filled. Strong roasted nose with outspoken ureum aromas, and drying grass. Coffee, hints at spirit. Again very roasted with roasted barley sourish imprint, finish being sweetish-bitter. Peppery character, lots of roasted coffeebeans. Bitter chocolate retronasal, carrying a long-lasting roastiness into the aftertaste, with much alcoholwarming. Velvety-rich, viscous feel. Pretty well-balanced for such an outspoken beer. Many thanks to Kees!
