NikkTwist (2003) - 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.

PhillyCraft (3963) - 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.

sebletitje (7801) - Enghien, BELGIUM - NOV 11, 2011
66cl bottle #16382 Cuivrée, col moka. Arôme de whisky, léger tourbe avec un malt grillé et caramel le tout garde en retrait un parfum houblonné fleuri. Palais est réchauffant, alcool est agréable on ressent de belles pointes de whisky et cognac, le palais fini sur qcq notes de cendre/tourbe et de barrique laissant des notes boisées et de chêne. J’apprécie bien ce petit profile malt caramel, moka qui au fini conserve cette note de houblon fleuri avec qcq houblon citron.

nearbeer (4166) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 9, 2011
0.66 L bottle, wrapped like a gift with a tag, and no label on the bottle inside. Tag says number 16855. bottled April 2011. Just shy of opaque, the chocolate body has a lasting centimeter of sticky, creamy foam. Sweet alcoholic nose of vanilla, whiskey, chocolate, roasted peanut, toffee, and a hint of smoky char. Taste is less sweet than expected: front has more char and toast blended with the sweetish chocolate and caramel that show up in the middle. Earthy toast and peanut, whiskey, ash and light oak help to dry the finish a bit. Medium body is a little sticky, and hot for 9%, but a nice sipper.

Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours opaue dark brown with very little head. Med body. Flavor is dark fruit with some cola and a little sweet dark malt. And a bit vinous. There is subtle oak running throughout. Very nice.

Bottle from City Beer. Pours dark brown with a tiny disapearing beige head and an alcohol and raisin aroma. There is a rich dark fruit flavor with some vanilla and an oaky finish with a warm alcohol trail. I could drink this all evening and then fall asleep.
