Alengrin (3368) - BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2014
Winter version of Embrasse, a luxury beer that has been aged on whisky- and cognac barrels for three months; the brewer even suggests to serve this warm with whipped cream, like an Irish coffee, and although I am all for such adventurous experiments, I stay on the safe side this time and taste it in the normal way at cellar temperature. Light beige, thick head, colour a very dark bronze; complex aroma of chocolate, coffee, peat, wood, cognac and whisky noticeable, rosemary, dates, liquorice, meat broth, vanilla, dried plums. Deep and rich malt profile, lots of spicy notes, bitter chocolate, woody finish with again the hints of both whisky and cognac, smokey touch, vinous feeling, warming and long finish. What a treat on a gloomy winter day.

ThirstyBird (2215) - London area, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2013
Tasted @ RBBWG 2013 - Thanks Travlr! Pours a clear cola color with a very small head. Smells of peat, smoke and rich malt. Taste is huge and peaty, deep fruit and rich malt. Medium body and average carbonation. This is a huge peat bomb...if you like that sort of thing.

Thx. to Travlr / Gene for this one @ RBBWG 2013 the morning-after tasting – this was the last Embrasse variation I still hadn’t tried yet. Consequently this is also my #1750 beer rating & #800 Belgian beer (I count DvdK as a Belgian brewery because they are awesome so I claim them). Aged for 3 months 1/3 whisky & 1/3 cognac. The bottle itself is a bit old now, what 2 years? Dunno… Pours a murky wooden brown with café au lait head. Smells sweet of milk chocolate, lots, sugar, creamy, woody with some cognac & whisky. Taste delicious, sweet with milk chocolate, chocolate milk, brown sugar, creamy, vanilla, cupcakes, warming but not boozy in the back with cognac warmth and smoothness plus light peat. Creamy, chocolate milk substance, tough light but perfectly fine. Delicious beer. Quite love it.
