Bottle. Pours a very dark brown, murky beer with a medium sized, brownish head on top. Aroma has loads of Lagavulin hints in there, nice peaty, iodine influences with some medicinal touches. The base beer is also present in the nose. Flavor is a bit disappointing. It’s still nice, but it’s a bit messy and unbalanced. The Lagavulin overwhelmes the beer but not in a very convincing way. The peat shines through, but so does the boozy sweetness in the beer. It’s really nice, but compared to the other Embrasse beers this is the least in the series. Low on carbonation, sweet, peaty aftertaste and a medium body. This could’ve been so much more. It’s still nice, but I’ve expected much more. Moolesen (587) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2015

RBESG pt 1. Craft Clapham. Bottle courtesy of Rene. Hazy brown - amber beer, good pale cream - tan colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, mild fine carbonation. Mild fruity tang, mellow TCP. Mild spice. Comes together well because the peat is light and not overdone. Finishes light with a mild spicy linger.
Bottle thanks to Rene. It pours cloudy deep mahogany brown with a small beige head. The nose is sweet, cherry cola, candy, dark fruit, doctor pepper, jam, smoked peat and wood. The taste is rich, earthy, dark fruit, candy, cherry cola and light roast, whisky, earth and dried cranberry. Medium-full body and moderate carbonation. Very tasty.

0.66l bottle from trade with Martinus! Big thanks mister! My bottle says it’s a 10 percenter. The pour on this is really deep and lovely looking ruby brown and it has a medium sized deep grey almost brown looking head on top. Looks really good. In the aroma I get a really nice not to kick-you-in-the-teeth-strong smokiness and peatiness. Dark old tary rope that has been picked of a pirate ship. A bit of tobacco and there is even some red berries in here. Nice rich smoky nose. Lots and lots of flavor here. It has a good oily mouthfeel and a below average almost prickling carbonation level. Where to begin? On the clear but not disturbingly sourness perhaps? A bit like sour raspberries blended with lots of ashy deep smoke and wood. Lots of that ashes actually and it has a light but not to overpowering sweetness. Not sure what I expected, but I definitely thought it would be more peaty. It’s super salty as well. This actually suits me just fine right about now. A bit of white licorice and it has more sweet concentrated red berries in the aftertaste. Shockingly well masked alcohol for being a 10 percent beer. Lots of things going on here, and I quite enjoyed this one. 21.10.2013
