probstblueribbon (3323) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2013
Bomber shared at GRM’s. Very murky mahogany with a thin tan veil. Definite wood, dark dried fruit, a touch bright, tart berries/cherries, decent. Medium+ body, soft effervescence, slick. Some smoke, metallic, dusty/musty, tart cherries, chocolate, not entirely pleasant; off dry with a warm, alcoholic finish hat is very dusty and not quite enjoyable.

TEJA (1741) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle sampled at Björn, thanks. Small and short brown head. Red-amber color. Much less aroma then the standard Embrass. Chocolate taste with a balanced bitterness. Nice sparkle and fine body.

A clear dark brown colored beer, with a firm beige head. The aroma of dark fruits and dark malt, som wood notes and hints of whisky. The taste of whisky, wood, dark malts and some sweet fruits. The aftertaste is nice sweet with some whisky and bitter notes.

Holy (835) - GERMANY - AUG 29, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Travlr - many thanks! Slightly medicinal, sweeter beginnings turn into a burnt bitter endgame. Hoped for more...

MPA (866) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle. Brown with beige head. Lovely aroma of wood, vanilla, raisins, dates and chocolate. Sweet syrup flavour with notes of wood and whisky. Alcohol is present as well with this beer ending in a nice bitterness which also opens up flavours of roasted malts. Very interesting beer.

NikkTwist (2046) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Draft at Monks. Billed as the regular version but feel fairly confident that the strong peat and vanilla notes indicate this special edition. Poured a very dark brown with a lacey off-white head. Peat notes jump out first. Crisp dark malt flavors beyond. Noting chocolate and vanilla. Sweet barrel aged goodness. Big whiff of alcohol as it warms. Burnt caramel. Red plums. Dates. Bing cherry. Toffee. Smoked Scottish heather and lavender. Medium full body. Strong but balanced finish. Bigger, sweeter and smokier than the normal Embrasse.

Countbeer (5337) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - JUN 17, 2012
Bottle: Deep dark brown colored beer with a medium vast tan head which disappears slow. Smell oatmeal, wood, light flowery, porrage, some sweets , light vanilla, honey, barleys malts and some sweeter darker herbs. Taste wood, spicy, light vanilla, liquorice, rose hip, light roosvicee flavors, barley malts, nice bitter and some sticky grains. Very nice tasting beer.  Low carbo, soft light spicy, mouthfeel, full body and a creamy texture. Very nice balanced

SudsMcDuff (6923) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - JUN 9, 2012
quite the presentation, black bag wrapper with fancy tag .. . pours brown .. medium foam, good lacing .. . mix of light spices, some chocolate and berries .. . an alright beer, unique but nothing to special about it .. . . What do you call a dinosaur with a extensive vocabulary? A thesaurus.

PhillyCraft (4067) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 8, 2012
Bottle. Special edition version lagered for three months on oak, aged in 1/3 whiskey barrel and 2/3 cognac. Split with Pat for his re-emergence back into the beer game. Poured a deep, bloody, chestnut with a massively complex, thick, khaki colored head. Gothic church window spiderweb lacing. Aromas and Flavor are chocolate, pepper, cedar gruit, sour black cherries, dutch smoked gouda, vanilla, whiskey oak, slight funk. I was already a huge fan of the normal Embrasse but this one took the cake. Full bodied rich flavored belgian that outlived my expecations. Awesome.
