ALIBALI (1454) - Kiel, GERMANY - OCT 22, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 24, 2016 Die fr mich so typisch, mit DeMolen Biere verbindende, medizinische Khle ist definitv auch hier anwesend. Das Ardberg Fass hat also sein teuflisches Werk vollbracht, denn auch starke Rauchschwaden ziehen durch den Schlund. In der Nase noch klar vom Schlage Whisky, gehts im Mulchen erst richtig rund. Die lige Textur spielt ihr ganzes OEuvre aus, der Sud gleitet frmlich die Kehle hinab, und hinterlt ppig angeste Rauchrstflavours der Extraklasse. Am Ende vielleicht etwas zu kantig und alkoholisch. Trotzdem kommen irgendwann auch unsere allseits beliebten Hoppyhops zum Einsatz, maybe als rotfruchtiger berwurf !? Who knows ?? 🙂 0,33/7 aus dem CRAFT BEER STORE HH. BOTTLE.

Jet black beer, rather big dissipating tan head. Lovely aroma of peat, whisky, smoke, roasted malts, ash and light dark chocolate. Flavour sweet malty, whisky, peat, ash, milk chocolate. Full and silky mouthfeel. Finish peated whisky and burned malts. Holy smoke, I just love it when good beer and Islay flavours are combined.

(bottle) pours a deep black colour with a small dark beige head, very viscous. aroma of iodine, peat smoke, seaweed, light coffee and chocolate, brown sugar and herbal hops. flavour is toasted malts, furnace ash, caramel, brown sugar and lots of peat smoke, barrel-dominated yet surprisingly well-balanced. heavy-bodied with soft carbonation.

Very dark, dark brown head. Aroma and taste very peaty. Lots of whiskey in this one, more than in any other BA stous by Emelisse. Wood is als o very present. Other imperial stout elements like chocolate, coffee and roasted malts are harder to find, although there is quiet some bitter chocolate in the aftertaste. But as a huge whiskey fan (and Ardberg being one of my favorites) I really enjoy this beer! Body is good, carbonation relatively high, that might have been a bit smoother.

Emelissen Ardbeg-viskitynnyreiss kypsytetty imperial stout kaatuu lasiin mustana muodostaen vaalean ruskeaa vaahtoa. Tuoksu muistuttaa Ardbegista ja on mys kahvinen, savuinen ja paahtunut. Maussa puolestaan on kahvia, lakristsia, paahtunutta mallasta, lkkeit, savua ja lis viski. Islay-viskeille tyypillinen turpeisuus tulee hyvin esiin sek tuoksussa ett maussa. Alkoholin maku tulee esiin vain viskimisesti ja onkin poikkeuksellisen miellyttv. Toisin olisi, jos maku muistuttaisi esim. kossua. Vhhiilihappoisuus ei tietenkn tllaisessa oluessa vaivaa ja olut soljuu alas kurkusta paksuna ja liukkaana. Viski on tss tynnyrikypsytetyss keskimrist vahvempi elementti, mutta ei hautaa muita makuja tysin alleen. Toimii siis vahvan viskiseksi olueksi erinomaisesti.

Fantastiskt gott. Smak och doft av massor av rk, malt, ektr, mrk choklad, saltlaktris, brnt socker, katrinplommon, rostade toner, espresso med toner av mrk torkad frukt och vanilj. Vlbalanserad, whiskeyknsla med en trevlig rkig beska med smak av saltlaktris och bitter mrkchoklad.

UPDATED: JAN 15, 2016 Volle zwarte kleur met een goede fijne bruine kraag. Volle geur van koffie, vanille, iets peated en iets alcohol. Volle smaak, duidelijk peated, iets hout, koffie, vanillie en iets alcohol en een lekker bittertje en iets alcohol nasmaak. Dikke structuur. Lekker!

This beer really gives you the taste of the smokey whiskey whence it was bottled in. Unfortunately Ardbeg iant my favorite, but still an amazing beer.

Pours a black colour. Taste and aroam is smokey and whisky like. Thick and oily on the palate, very good. Cheers Mike_77

Strong peaty aroma, with some chocolate in the background. Pours black with no head, only some dissappearing bubbles. Taste is whisky, lots of dark chocolate, bitter finish. Quite dry altough full bodied. Awesome beer - if one likes peaty aromas and whisky.
