thebeertourist (4901) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2010
Bottle no 581 from Utobeer. Clear copper, big and lacing offwhite head. Complex fruity aroma, slightly vinous. Fruit, some raisins, and caramel flavours. The vanilla beans only give a small impact. Good, but probably overrated.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2011
0.375L bottle, bought at Utobeer, London. Cellared for year. Pours a reddish amber, topped by a thin layer of dense beige bubbles. Sweet fruity, lght alcohol-scented aroma. Toasted and caramelly malts, too. Notes of earthy hops and lightly spiced hops. Taste is sweet and full. Fruit-cocktail and toasted malts. Properly hopped. Warming alcohol throughout. Softly carbonated. Sweet and warming finish. Nice!

Tap @ Copenhagen Beer Festival 2010. Amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma is mild fruity with malt and burnt sugar. Flavor is sweet, dry fruit, caramel and warming alcohol. A mild and delicate bitterness is detected in the finish. Well balanced and interesting.

Thx. to Gene for this one // 375 ml. bottle, caged with a plastic cork // love the design on these bottles, simple but... these guys really know marketing // bottled 29.01.2010 // bottle nr. 2954/3200 // red malty brown, little in the way of head // smells sweet, candy, candied fruits, caramel, candy sugar, clearly affected somewhat by age // taste has definetly been affected by age, muted, time hasn’t been kindly to AB’s, these should be drank fresh by what I can tell, this feels way older than 2 years, sweet dark fruits, plenty of aged fruits, caramel, sweet malts, plenty of brown and candy sugar, touch vanilla, there is some serious sugar in this, still remnants of hops in the end // light thinned out // if you still have bottles of this, drink them as fast as you can

ClubGonzo (4232) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 13, 2012
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew’s Epic Abstrakt/Blåbær tasting, feat. special guests Foffern and StoreMy. :-) January 2010 is bottling date. The first one in the Abstrakt series pours a light nougat hazy body with plenty of tiny sediments and a tiny off-white head. Caramel, candy sugars, almonds and hints of vanilla and nougat. Taste is burnt sugar, caramel, alcohol, candy sugars and hints of nuts and some dryness reminding me of birch wood. Slightly thin, dry and alcoholic palate with a boozy finish and slightly too low carbonation. Not totally convinced. Could it be the age? Maybe not, but still. Hm.

Bottle shared at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured amber with a thin head. Big vanilla on the nose. Very sweet, dark sugars, caramel, buttery creaminess. In the flavors, the vanilla qualities fainted to the back, allowing alcohol heat and yeast spiciness to shine through.
