Douberd (2612) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 24, 2014
(Emelisse Winterbier) Bottle 330 ml t home, vintage 2014 with the ABV being 9.2%, served into small trappist glass. Faded brown colour on the body, clear, with a small tan head, disappearing quickly. Aroma has caramel, toffee, toasted malts. Taste of malts, caramel, toffee, light dark fruits, alcohol is notable. Medium body with carbonation on the high side. Good sipper but taste-wise nothing special, maybe a bit too boozy too.

Drank with Tijs, Rik and Thierry at home 21-12-2014. A nice beer. Strong taste. Like spijs, or something, also alcohol. Similar to a bok beer, but more expressive taste. Good one.

Franksv6 (274) - Tiel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2014
Brown colored beer with a small white cup, low carbonation. Smells spicy. Taste is also spicy, sweet candy, caramel and raisin. Not a bad beer but there are better Emelisse beers.

Aubrey (3453) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2014
2014 bottle. Brown color with a thinnish head. Boozy nose. Creamy, full texture; mild carbonation. Notes of wholesome bread, grains, toffee and nuts. Sweet marshmallow flavor gave it some depth without being too sticky-sweet. Warming alcohol. Pleasant winter warmer.

33cl flesje via Mans, Margraten Alcoholpercentage van 9,2% Uitgeschonken in Grimbergen glas Uiterlijk: roodbruin/koper met bijna geen schuim Aroma en smaak: zoet, kandijsuiker, banaan, caramel, kruidig Conclusie: marshmallow gebruikt, zorgt voor een volle smaak. Minder kruidig als je zou verwachten bij een kerstbier. Maar wel heel goed te drinken. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

drjay44 (2737) - Salida, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2014
330 ml. bottle. Cap with a thin layer of yeast build up. Pours a thin, poorly retained, light beige head, over a hazy, particle laden light brown (SRM 20) body.....nose is dried fruits including plum, fig, raisin, light brown sugar, hints of treacle, hints of wintergreen, minimal hops, balance to the malts.....taste is sweet with brown sugar, molasses hints, treacle, plum, raisin, finishing with a mild spice/hop bitterness......mouth feel, light of medium body, alcohol warmth present, carbonation low. This is obviously an older bottle which has been stored on its side in the past. The beer contained therein is a lighter take on an Abt/Quad, with relatively low complexity in both aroma and flavor for the style. It is not a bad beer, in spite of the appearance, it is just a bit too average. BJCP 7/2/13/4/6
