Opaque black - brown beer, few pale tan bubbles, Palate is smooth and dry, not much carbonation. Smooth mild dark malts, fruity whisky, little dark chocolate. Light dry finish. The near flat body robs this of some vibrancy but it’s okay.

Pours really flat, no gas remaining whatsoever. This one has dark malts and cocoa upfront with the whiskey flavour coming through quite delicately in the finish. Mortlach (2335) - Rome, ITALY - JAN 22, 2014
22/01/2014 Bir&Fud Bottega (330ml bottle). Nera, densa, impenetrabile, schiuma cappuccino non molto abbondante. Al naso sentori di malti tostati, botte, vaniglia, caffè, liquorosa, alcol. In bocca l’attacco è caffettoso, note di liquirizia, botte, acidula, complessa e appagante. Corpo pieno, carbonazione media. Ottima imperial stout! Moolesen (538) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 14, 2014
Bottle 33 cl. Number 3 of a range of 7 Emelisse IRS. What an evening... Light small head. Sweet aroma gives hints of the barrel aging. The taste misses out the whisky taste. A bit disappointing. Still a nice beer, though. I just hoped for more. Guess a bit longer bartel aging would create a much better beer.
