Dochter Van De Korenaar – Embrasse – Blended Oak Aged
Embrasse matures four to six months in whiskey barrels.
For the peated oak aged Embrasse Islay barrels are used; for the blended oak aged Embrasse non-peated whiskey barrels are used.
By barrel aging the beer it takes the rich tones of the whiskey and the beer gets a softer and fuller taste.
Both types do well with blue cheeses and nuts; but both beers are also excellent with venison.
Peated Oak Aged Embrasse won the 2011 Zythos Consumer Trophy
