PhillyCraft (5892) - 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.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - APR 6, 2011
Black with a fizzy light tan head. Earthy aroma of cognac, chocolate malts, grape, citrus, and thin alcohol. Palate is heavy and creamy. Tastes of cognac and oak up front followed by a hint of whiskey immediately overpowered by chocolate and vanilla and then finishing with buttery roasted grain flavors. Sticky carob and grape flavors linger in the back of throat.

erickok (5452) - Leuven, BELGIUM - 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)

750 ml bottle - nice black waxy foil type wrapping, shared by 12% Brian. Pours a deep dark woody hazed brown- nearing black with a medium lasting head- some lace. Aroma is a nice blend actaully of sweet cognac, caramel, earth, wood, fruits, and some whiskey- malty, earthy, light smoke, phenol, wood, american oak- yeasty doughy phenolic notes, fruity esters, some grass, dough, biscuit, toasted and light burnt malts, some dark caramel malt note and some cookie dough. Flavor has a chocolate nutty presence, toast, biscuit, woody, earthy, vanilla, oak, cognac, whiskey, medium sweetness good phenols and esters light pear, peach, yellow raisin, dates and medium sweetness, but a mostly dry finish. Pretty easy drinking- I had to go back for a bit more. Pretty good.

nearbeer (4919) - 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.
