Bottle. Nose is acres of peat, oak, lots of soy, leading to coffee bean. Taste is whiskey, peat, leading to rich dark fruits, some dark sugars than a lasting smokey whiskey finish.
Mouthfeel is rich and a bit claggy.
Outstanding beer that has been creatively barreled.

I don’t understand because i have really enjoyed the basic "Emelisse IRS" but the white label (This Bowmore, and the Wild Turkey BA) no, a lot of coffee beans roasted and cacao notes in taste, strong aroma, almost pitch black and oily color with no persistent tan head... No carbonation and heavy body... Excessive

One of the several special editions of their imperial stout, matured on Bowmore casks. Pale beige, stable head, ink black colour. Strongly roasted aroma like the basic beer, the iron and the peat are there again too, coffee beans, nutmeg, dates, bitter chocolate as usual, but all drenched in a very noticeable, even somewhat overpowering whisky sauce. Taste is full and complex, spicy, bit of iron, oily mouthfeel, dark fruits, finishing not only in roasted bitterness but also in warming whisky presence (whether it is Bowmore or another single malt is hard to determine) as well as an agreeable woodiness. The Emelisse impy clearly benefited from this whisky bath, which only added to its complexity and has covered the astringent alcohol a bit with a more gentle, warming, pleasant whisky alcohol.

Bottle at the chriso Pre-GBBF Shindig 2013 - London. Pours brown-black with a creamy beige head. Heavy peat character, oily, with tar and dark chocolate. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Warming on the finish with rich and lingering peat, some dark chocolate, a bit of burnt earth. Pretty good overall.
