Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Woodshed 3.0! Picked this up at the De Molen bottle shop about three or more years ago. The caged and corked 37.5cl green glass bottle pours with a murky copper body that supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up inviting notes of molasses, caramel, brown sugar dusted prunes and then some vegetable notes. The taste is pretty smooth and thin and popping up aged brown sugar, earthy tea, some aged resiny pine hops and then fading echoes of fruit esters. The massive ABV is restrained pretty well. Nice but this was likely better a year ago.

BOLTZ7555 (2780) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle shared via ibrew2or3 @ Woodshed 3.0! Thanks Dave! This just wasn’t a good one. Fiery crimson brew with a tightly packed eggshell head that left quickly. Loads of alcohol, sticky malt, and honey-dipped hops were present. The ABV was noticeable. Meh.

Gurthnar (1552) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle. Aroma raisins, milk chocolate. Fruity. Very light coffee. Light vanilla. Mostly clear deep amber-brown colour. No head. Taste has grapes, woody notes, caramel, initially cocoa, light coffee. Alcoholic presence is strong, but what go expect at 18 ABV? Considering this fact, the ABV is well hidden. Overall very very smooth, rounded, both in taste and flavour. Very nice aged experience.

ThirstyBird (1485) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle @ RBBSG II. Courtesy of Travlr. Thanks Gene! Pours a muddy brown with a wisp of a tan head. The smell is rich, fruity, chocolate, caramel. The taste is rich...really follows the nose with alcohol esters & dry finish...a little wood too. Medium/full body with fine carbonation. A sipper.

Backlog. Tasted at a vertical tasting of the first six abstracts released. Bottles from Systembolaget. Slightly too sweet for my palate.

teorn88 (1918) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Taster from bottle at La Cantinetta. It pours a deep amber colour with a minimal tan head. Aroma is sweet and boozy with vanill, leather and caramel. Taste follow suit with more sweet whisky notes. Thick body with soft carbonation. I think this doesn’t show any sign of age on it, but is probably the old Abstrakt with the less character to it.

KansaiBeerLvrs (1661) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 4, 2013
At the first Kinki Beer Tasting, bottle 61 of 3600. A clear-ish brown pour with a very strong aroma of plums, figs, malts & caramel. The best aroma of the 4 Abstrakts we tried. Medium bodied with a woodsy, boozy, dark chocolate & pepper flavor. It had lots of heat and was a bit too boozy for me.
