Bottle at borefts 2011. Hello Laphroaig what are you doing in my beer, well apparently truly enjoying being in there cause it works out really well. The normal imp. stout by Emelisse is already a great beer. But this version, well bring on the winter, snow and a roaring fire and I’ll kill some time with it. cgarvieuk (26089) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 23, 2011
