erickok (4306) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - AUG 6, 2011
Black bodied with small creamy head. Apple pie, toffee, white chocolate, and hazelnut liquor. Taste is mild sweet and reveals some wood as well as a faint whiskey heat. Alcoholic doesn’t play nice and body is quite thin. Wasn’t very impressed by the normal version and this is only somewhat better. (66cl bottle)

dEnk (4199) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2010
Bottle @ Emelisse oktoberfest. Almost solid brown pour, medium tanned head. Aroma of liquorice, malt, hops, some red fruit and peat. Flavour is red fruit, peat, chocolate, roasted malt and some smoke. Nice finish, proper carbonation. Very nice.

nearbeer (4176) - 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.

PhillyCraft (3968) - 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.

Vaiz (3837) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2010
Bottle at Emelisse Oktoberfest 2010. Spicy aroma with licorice, dark fruits and roasted malt. Some caramel in the flavor, sweet, spicy and slightly bitter. Some vanilla and oak comes along in the flavor. Nice complex brew and heavy flavor. Great.

MrChopin (3726) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2011
hazy dark tan, opaque, bit of muddy caramel and chocolate, bit of light whisky. More whisky in flavor, finish particular, light caramel, plum, cherry, bit of spice lingers in nose.

Martinus (3712) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2010 Very dark coloured beer with a dense yellow head. Aroma of malts, dark fruits & prunes and whisky. Malts, some smokiness, warm flavours against an intriguing background of the whisky and cognac notes. Balanced and full palate, with vanilla and mocha tones lingering around. Tasting at the Brugge beer festival. Dochter van de Korenaar is definitely one of my favourites among small Belgian breweries and 3 months on whisky barrels was a great idea for embrasse.

jesperhammer (3496) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 22, 2011
21-OCT-2011, bottle @home, brought by Morten. Dark brown with orange hue and lasting beige head. Sweet cognac and caramel nose with a hint of peat. Taste is sweet caramel, cognac, peat, and dried fruits. Nice and complex brew with a nice creamy body with high carbonation. Barrels are well integrated.

probstblueribbon (3300) - 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.
