This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of frothy medium sized white colored bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a no visible carbonation semi-opaque brown colored body and a poor lacing. The weak aroma was malty. The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering spicy aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of semi-sweet mild spice and brown malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Deep purple hue, low head. Aroma spicy - lots of cedar wood and cloves. Taste licorice, heavy herbal notes. Juniper berries and pine needles. Toffee finish, bit dry. Original and warming.

Spciale dhiver 2014 (jinsiste sur le millsime) au marshmallow qui est bien plus un barley wine quune quadruple comme indiqu sur le site. Niveau abv de 9,2 %, pour 22,3 plato, avec 51 ebu. Trs jolie tiquette deep purple... Couleur de la bire, elle, en belle rousse un rien auburn/cuivr, qui aurait plu ma grand-mre, si elle lavait connue, videmment... Clart nette. Bulles moyennes partout, vives. Nappage beige soyeux de surface (ce qui permet dj une nette diffrence barley wine et quad ). Armes dacajou, prune dEnte sur larbre, miel de lavande, pointe de framboise dlicate. 1re bouche souple la trs belle entame malt/pice, avec un ct bois exotique. Arrire-bouche mate, un rien caramlise, mais pas du tout mivre. 2me lensemble vraiment intressant malt/rsine. Arrire-bouche de malt extrmement fin. 3me sublime bouche qui se dveloppe, prend de lampleur. Arrire-bouche de vrai barley wine dans le plus pur sens. Longueur au grand dveloppement sur le ft, lie de vin magnifique, avec de superbes envoles. Jambes huileuses, comme il convient au genre. Levure soyeuse, dlicate, parfume, superbe ligne. Finale qui est un dieu (je ne puis vous dire lequel) descendu sur terre, pardon, dans mon verre. CONCLUSION: sauf dcision par le brasseur, on ne retrouvera plus cette bire, puisquon est pass en 2015 lengelse drop en addition la bire, au lieu du marshmallow .. Alors je lance un appel solennel au brasseur par lintermdiaire de Ste Emelisse: h, Ste Emelisse, faites que nous retrouvions la bire WINTER 2014 tellement sublime dans nos verres qui en sont orphelins... Excusez-moi dtre aussi prcis, Ste Emelisse, mais je sais que vous avez des livres de demande bien tenus, et je suis sr que vous mexaucerez Amen. En principe, quand jtais petit, a marchait ...

Amberkleurig troebel bier. Uitgesproken aroma en smaak van mout, caramel, toffee, butterscotch. Licht zoetige afdronk. Lekker bier maar niet het beste wat Emelisse te bieden heeft.

tomekk1978 (1329) - Zbki, POLAND - JAN 5, 2016
Aromat: wyraźna słodycz, wino owocowe (śliwki, wiśnie, rodzynki), alkohol, karmel, chleb, tosty, melano, trochę kwaskowości. Niestety alkohol ma nieco rozpuszczalnikowy charakter, choć piwo miało czas się ułożyć (wersja 2014).

Wygląd: barwa miedzian, wyraźnie zamglona, do zmętnionej z pływającymi drobinkami. Piana w kolorze ecru, drobno pęcherzykowa, umiarkowanej wielkości i niezbyt trwała, ograniczająca się do niewielkiej obwdki wokł ścianek.

Smak: kwaskowo- alkoholowa (bardzo ostra) podstawa z akcentami rodzynek, wiśni, śliwek suszonych, karmelu, nieco czekolady, chleba melano. Całość jednak nieprzyjemna. Goryczka umiarkowana, niezbyt wyczuwalna. Krągła pełnia, niskie wysycenie i kwaskowo- alkoholowy (momentami palący przełyk) finisz. Bardzo słabe wykonanie. Za duży alkohol i kwaskowość. Z trudem piłem.

Alengrin (4698) - BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2015 At Spuyt in Amsterdam but I forgot to take notes so will have to re-rate later. From what I remember, this was a deep brownish bronze beer with medium sized, pale greyish beige head and sweet, malty aroma and taste of caramel, toffee, pear, dates, raisins and some banana; somewhat thin and even lightly metallic body for the style, finishing sweet with warming alcohol, spicy notes and light herbal hop bitterness. More than decent, but coming from Emelisse, I guess I expected a bit more still.

Versa nel bicchiere color mogano, torbido, con riflessi aranciati; la schiuma minima e, dopo poco sparisce quasi completamente. Al naso risaltano fin da subito malto e caramello, seguiti da frutta sciroppata e zucchero di canna. In bocca si presenta dolce, fruttata, note di malto, caramello, frutta scura. Al palato rimane corposa, carbonazione medio-bassa; nel finale si percepiscono leggere note agrumate, di spezie e un tepore alcolico.

330ml bottle from saveur biere. Pours a clear dark ruy with thin film of bridge head. Aroma is figs, cinnamon, other spice, malts and dusty oak. Lovely smooth texture. Fine carbonation. Christmas pudding and dried fruit. A slight after taste of alcohol mixed with oak and caramel.
