Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2012
In short: A overly boozy sweet bronze ale with a body too weak to support its alcohol. Very boring
How: Bottle 375ml, corked and caged. Consumed approximately 2 years after bottling date. Bottle sent to me by grownfool, thanks Brian
The look: Cloudy bronze body topped by a very small beige head
In long: Nose is higher alcohol that curled my nostrils hair and crème caramel. Taste is very boozy. For a such a high gravity beer the body was rather light, it tasted like a heavy beer in which someone had poured water, I could taste the big toffee malts yet I also had a watery sensation. Notes of toffee, caramel, ripe bananas. Alcohol burns the lips. Because of the rather frail body the 10.2% is not well hidden at all, I would have guessed even higher. Overall this was too simple and dominated by booze. Meh. And it should be spelled “Abstract” not “Abstrakt”, I hate when people massacre the english language, and the people who use “your” instead of “you’re” I think there stupid.

(375ml bottle #822/3200 bottled 1-29-10 thanks to James of BrewDog!) clear orange pour with light bubbles. Nose of apples, raisin. Taste of raisin, toastiness, apple. Disappointing given the ingredients listed. Has a nicely spicy finish. Had trouble describing the elements of this as well.

teorn88 (5860) - Out of the EU, 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.

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.

vyvvy (5467) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAR 8, 2011
Pours murky copper / brown with a sudsy beige head. The aroma has bready maltiness, nectarines, apples, syrupy sweetness, funk and alcohol - doesn’t strike me as a quad. Medium / thick body with lots of frothy semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with the aroma traits with lots of fruitiness and warming alcohol. Added to those aspects are peach, cotton candy and spices. The finish doesn’t change too much from the original flavor, but as the beer warms there are hints of vanilla, but it’s not very apparent. This is okay, but I expected more.

ClubGonzo (5303) - 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.
