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.

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 (3343) - 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.

Yorker (1663) - Herning, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2013
Corked 37.5 cl bottle @ home (bottle #2945). Pours murky brown with a lot of sediment and no head. Aroma and flavour is resin, pepper, pine, and caramel – with a bitter and alcoholic finish.

McNeillR (1778) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Big rusty amber body with boozy listless head. Coppery nose, firey. Dense oily, oxidsed boozeage slips away to floral rustiness. Crystalled throughout, keeping it steely and narrow. Terse finish, mapely

Bottle, Brewdog Garvie Gauntlet

Oxidized. Confected medicinal sweet nose. Roasty nose. Lots of sap. Some burn. Range of incongruous flavors.

fletchfighters (1272) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 4, 2013
To me really has changed from an imperial red ale to an English style barleywine. Still had a bit of pine like hop taste but the deeper I got into it it had a lot of caramel, sherry, fair amount of booze, little to no carbonation. Good looking dark amber color and had developed quite well. Slick and sticky in the mouth. A touch on the sweet side but pretty good overall

bierkoning (11206) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2012
Bottle, thanks Craig! Deep dark brown color, no head. Malt, maple suyrup, red berries and dried citrusfruit in the aroma. Malty sweet flavor, well hopped but partly faded. Hazelnuts, vanilla and red berries. No carbon whatsoever. Caramel. Hidden alcohol.

Köszönöm Armando és Balázs! Olyan színe van, mint egy régóta a pohárban pihenő kólának. Illata melaszos, alkoholos, szilvalekváros és enyhén lábszagú. Íze mazsolás, édes, kormos, karamellás, medvecukros és alkoholba áztatott mazsolás. Sűrű, testes ital. Utóíze füstös, keserű és alkoholos. Nagyon kiegyensúlyozatlan sör, amiben igen meghatározó a magas alkoholtartalom.
