Pour is dark brown with red edges and a tight tan head. Nose is big, dark fruits, dry fig, dark berries and dry bakers chocolate. Taste is even sweeter, tons of berry and dry fig, dry malt and hints of bitter chocolate. Full bodied and soft carbonation and a silk oily feel.

My husband and I shared an Embrasse on Sunday night at Nuetnigenough in Brussels. I would push the rating to 95. This beer is tremendous.

Served in a small 4oz serving glass at Pizzaria Paradisio/Dupont Circle

Maybe I have this beer all wrong but my taste is not lining up with what I have read or what most others consider a supposedly great beer. Not catching the cinnamon that the brewer tells me is there. 3

A - Dark amber almost opaque but not cloudy. 4

S - A smokey nose, dark fruits. 3

T - Definite smokey flavor, slightly sweet, a little spicy, very little alcohol evident. Tasting the Belgian yeast which sort of puts a lactic twist on the smoke. 3

MF - Well carbonated but smooth. 4

Deep, dark brown--on the pale side of a stout. Light passes only on the very edge of the glass. Good starting head that leaves a combination of webs and spots for lace.

Dry nose with a nearly bakers chocolate aroma. I'm reminded of brownie dough.

Strong alcohol warmth to a complex flavor. There's the dark chocolate but there's also sweet cherry flavor. Although it tastes chewy, the body is really neutral. The carbonation is similarly middle of the road. The swallow lasts as a continuation of these flavors.
