Bottle. Fruity nose with plenty of belgian yeast characteristics. Fruit and spice mixes deliciously in the mouth, in a creamy and warming palate. Have one more of this vintage left, can’t see it lasting long. bluebetty (1021) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2009
Bottle. Pours a kind of murky dark brown with huge coffee coloured head. Aromas are quite spicy with plenty of aniseed and clove. Also some alcohol and perhaps a little dark fruit. Not too bad. Flavours unfortunately seemed a little off to me. Plenty of aniseed and clove thre once again. The drak fruit and alcohol are also there. Just doesn’t seem quite right and the spices seem to detract from the base beer. Struggled to get through the whole bottle. Normally love these guys beers but unfortunately not this one. eczematic (1325) - Adelaide, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2009
look i’m sorry i’m a big fan of emersons but this is a DOG’S BREAKFAST of a beer. going "belgian" seems to have inspired them to go even more OTT with spices than the undrinkable taeri george. the aroma is the weirdest thing i have ever smelt. part anise (which i expected) and part clothes that were left in the washing machine too long. "hints" of cloves, anise and some delicate fruitiness??? nothing delicate or hinting here. in the mouth ashy roasted malts clash horribly with banana esters and ridiculous amounts of anise. may well improve in a couple of years with this level of spice, ester and roast, but at the moment it’s horrible.
