Bottle shared at/from Maakun’s. Thanks! Black with thin tan head. Oldest Emelisse I ever had, from 2012. Sweet deep roasted chocolate malts, syruppy sweetness, nuttiness, earthy and fatty roasted coffee bean notes, deep dried dark fruits, dates, blackberries, prunes, whisky and oak. Moderate sweet and smooth deep bitter. Full body, nearing that velvet soft feel, soft carbonation, powdery dryness in the texture. Damn, what a pleasure to taste then good ol’ times of Emelisse White Label series at their peak. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - FEB 4, 2012
Bottle from Bierkoning. Black body with no head whatsoever. Nose is licorice, medicinal and roasty. Plenty of whisky in there too. Taste is also roasty, licorice and plenty of molasses. But texture very smooth and creamy with nice bitter chocolate punching through in the end. That 11% abv sure goes down well...
