Muddy, murky brown. Headless, oily legs. Heavy set savoury fruit nose. Yeasty, bready, burnt toast and vinous, thick, liqueurish stone fruit with just a hint of spice. Soapy, light body. Remarkably light. Sticky, bitter/sweet raisin and sultana finish. Pleasant but bland.

Bottled 50cl. Buttery aroma which is reminiscent of dried fruit, plums, banana and candy sugar. Full bodied. Buttery taste too. I was quite dissapointed by this Abt.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark brown with a small head.
Nose shows caramelised banana, chocolate, soft alcohol, rose-like perfume and raisins. Pretty full on.
Lots of alcohol shows upon tasting, along with heads of sweet brown sugar and golden syrup. Long lasting finish with plenty of candi sugar. Not amazingly complex for the style.
Moderately low carbonation could be higher.

Tap, Plan B Aug’ 10. Deep, rich brown with a thin light tan head. Lacto-sweetness and dark fruits in the aroma, and taste very much follows suit. Bit sweet, but a sour quality as well. Little musty and some prunes. Medium body with soft carbonation. Not bad.
