Palme (4337) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2014
0.33l bottle from my Euro Swap 2, Martinus. Thanks man! Tried to share this with my girlfriend, but she unfortunately did not like this. Tasted like sausage she said... I however really enjoy this aroma. The looks is pretty much as dark and black as it should be. Not much of a head to write home about though. Whats there is tiny and rapidly sidestickingy brown. I have to admit that its quite smoky on the nose! What I would call rope smoky with both salty licorice and lots of thick oily peat. I can kinda understand what my girlfriend did not enjoy by it, but I most definitely enjoy this aroma. Its if perhaps a bit one dimensional but definitely nice for on the nose. Reminds me a lot if a door mat with a little bit of oily tarmac. Oh yeah its peaty in the taste as well! Loaded with salty rope and thick oily tar. Its softly, really softly carbonated - near flat and its slickly and oily in the mouth. Salty dry licorice with a ton of wood and smoky peat. Packed with flavor I have to say. Its also a bit sweet I guess. The alcohol is hidden I a way I rarely see. Loaded with flavor in oh so many ways. Just wish my girlfriend could get used to the peaty flavor so that we could share more beers. Now I have to drink her glass as well. Not that that is a bad thing with this one in any way. 03.01.2014

sebletitje (9556) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 28, 2014
Bouteille 33cl de HopDuvel, BB 12/2015. Noire, col moyen voire faible caf au lait sur un lger filament dor sur le verre. Arme offre de suite ce bouquet tourbe caractristique. Le tout est renforc par une base malte de RIS solide avec pas mal de chocolat noire, dark malts. Palais est pais et huileux avec une effervescence faiblarde mais qui joue en faveur de la complexit et du volume de cette bire. Le profil tourbe est dominant sans pour cela tre surfait. Je note le bon ct de tourbe, cendre sur un malt ple, cara, choco lger grill et une petite amertume herbace des houblons en fin de bouche. La tourbe persiste en bouche.

MarcoDL (4394) - NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2014
Intensely peated beer. Body of dry roasted malt, with some bitter hops. Aging made it very smokey and peated, bit too much peat maybe, could use some more balance.

On tap @ LExpress de Lyon (Paris). Black with a thick creamy brown head and good lacing. Aroma is dominated by heavy peated notes, iddine, whisky, alcool, subdued roasted malt and dark chocolate... its a fun aroma, but not very complex because the peat take most/all the place. Taste is more complex even if the peated notes are quite important here too... theres whisky, smoke, dark chocolate, roasted malt, caramel... similar to the aroma, but everything except peat is more present. Warming alcohol finish too. Full body. Moderate carbonation. Thick mouthfeel. I have mixed feelings about this one... its very tasty and I like it, but at the same time its so "peat forward" that I had to reduce my "aroma" and "overall" score. Stil la pretty good one!

Keg at Express de Lyon, 16th April 14. Follows a Mikkeller I Hardcore you, good evening. This one is heavy peat on the aroma, and some whiskey. Taste is quite whiskey and peat forward, but this still retains the impy characteristics, got better as it warmed and I really enjoyed this. Lovely again from emelisse, but you need to appreciate the peaty whiskey notes on this

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2015 Aroma of roasted malts, peat, oak, coffee, charred wood, whiskey. Flavour is sweet and smokey, roasty and peaty. Body is thick and mouthfeel is sticky. Wonderfully intense like most other Emelisse White Label brews.

JulienHuxley (5691) - Trois-Rivires, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 13, 2014
Bottle from Belgium. Thick, thick, thick oily black pour with a creamy brown foam that lags 3 seconds after the end of the pour it takes so much time for the carbonation to surface. Aroma is really peaty, iodine, smoky with rich dark chocolate aromas as well. Taste is sweet, saline, strong smoky finish, lots of peat, dark chocolate and molasses. Palate is perfect, so thick, not cloying, just enough carbonation and just warm enough alcohol finish. Not a big fan of these Islay scotch barrel aged stouts but this one was well done.
