A dark brown beer with a small head.
Tastes like malt, hops, sugar candy and a little caramel.
Aftertaste is slightly sweet flavor. Easy to drink. mmahut (1859) - CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle in train :) Aroma has strong caramel, toffee, nutty notes. Taste has high sweetness, desert like palate, muffins, toffee, caramel, awesome. Low on the bitterness. Body is heavy, medium carbonation. A lot of candi. Svesse (8682) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2015
(Draught at Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 1 March 2015) Brownish amber colour with dense, beige head. Malty, fruity nose with roasted malt, dark bread, raisins and prunes. Malty, spicy taste with notes of dried fruit, roasted malt, crisp-bread and a balanced spicy bitterness. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Tasty and well balanced dubbel. Nice one.

Not my favorite Emelisse still good. Murky brown with very small beige head and pleasant mild carbonation. Flavor starts a bit sweet with candy sugar and figs and finishes more bitter with notes of overripe fruit. The alcohol does come through in the flavor. A good warming double but not very special. markextrae (4448) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2015

Draft at Emelisse. Pours murky, muddy, ugly brown with a big light-beige head. Aroma is sour, oud bruin, some dark fruit, yeast. Dominant candy sugar force, can't this do with less freaking sugar?, dry, light bitterness. mjs (7510) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2015
(Keg at Viisi Penniä, 20150220) The beer poured muddy brown and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had candi sugar, butter and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were kandi sugar, malts, grass, chocolate and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. The strong diacetyl makes me wonder whether this beer is in its proper condition. Nice taste but somewhat off-putting aroma. undercurrent25 (2170) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2015
Pours a dark brown colour, Taste is of liquorice, candy and yeast. Quite a good effort ClaudeB04 (406) - Dudelange, LUXEMBOURG - JAN 20, 2015
Hazy amber brown colour with a long lasting head.
Caramel and malty sweetness with some fruity notes. Taste is light, finish is a bit spicy. chromeotaphor (172) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 8, 2015
Prachtig aroma met een mix van caramel noten chocolade. Kleine schuimkraag die opvallend licht van kleur is, wolkachtig van type. Mooi mistig donker bruin bier, prachtig en bijzonder om te zien. Choco koffie achtig droog en bitter zoetig van smaak. Voelt vrij dun (carbonatie) en waterig aan wat helaas wat afbraak doet aan het geheel. Heel bijzondere dubbel.
