Bottle at home. Pous copper, fruity nose, grapes? Sweet fruity, vanilla died off fairly quickly when aging.

Backlog. Tasted at a vertical tasting of the first six abstracts released. Bottles from Systembolaget. More fun experiment than good beer.

teorn88 (1929) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Taster from 37.5cl bottle. It pours a deep amber colour with no head. Maybe a small ring of beige bubbles on the side of the glass. Aroma is sweet and bold with big notes of brandy and vanilla. Caramel and tobacco notes. Taste is sweet with some minor drying feeling from the yeast in the finish. Notes of caramel, vanilla, alcohol, brandy. Mouthfell is quite creamy with soft carbonation. Good overall.

we tried 4 Brewdog Abstract’s (01, 02, 10, 11) yesterday, the standout was the Abstract 01.This barley wine poured a slightly cloudy brown. Vanilla & westie XII yeast notes in the aroma with a medium to full body. A slightly boozy, maple, vanilla, sweet caramel & molasses beer with a touch of nuttyness. This was a fantastic barleywine.

Yorker (1250) - Herning, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2013
Corked 37.5 cl bottle @ home (bottle #3162). Pours dark amber with a lot of sediment and a tiny white head that leaves no lacing. Aroma and flavour is caramel, dark fruits, sugar, and yeast – with an alcoholic finish.

McNeillR (1240) - SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Pale straw, wink of sandy head. Hug of ripened banana skin scraping nose, slight woody applewood slap. Sweet enough but loose from oxidation doesn’t pummel the palate. Silky with a wee crunch of herb on the finish.

Bottle, Brewdog Garvie Gauntlet

Bottle 3174 out of 3200. Problematically purchased through a chain of friends from Switzerland, but it was well worth it. Third one tasted from the Abstrakt line for me and finally a hit. Aroma sweet fruity, honey, caramel, red apples, very light vanilla (I probably would not notice if I did not know it was added). Lightly hazy amber colour. Taste pleasant, very TASTY, nice belgian character, fruity, honey. Silky smooth mouthfeel, easily drinkable. Alcohol hidden very well. Finish is a bit mild compared to taste, but never mind. The aging went well for this one. Nice experience.
