Bottle at The Rake. So much better in bottle than on tap downstairs. Strawberry is more to the fore. Slight sour then a good raspberry caramel flavour. Very subtle whisky. Fruit is lovely in the bottle.

Keg and bottled (I assume) at the Rake. Amber/red with an off white head. Hugely complex with woody malts and spritzy raspberries. Good smooth carbonation and well disguised alcohol. Unlike a few others present on the night, I thought this was superb.

7th September 2010. The Rake.
Hazy amber beer with a little white head. Sweet raspberry nose. Smooth light palate that is also dry and has crisp edges, a little champagne like. Even fresh raspberry - not too sweet and not too acrid. Traces of paint, strawberries and whisky all pretty subtle - raspberry dominates. Finishes crisp and dry with a lingering and slightly bitter raspberry aftertaste. This is raspberry champagne! Very nice too and disguises it’s abv very well.

BeerViking (2688) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2010
Tap at the Rake, an initially disconcerting bright red with a very small head, notes of aniseed and raspberries on the nose, body is woody, fruity, slightly sour and sharply bitter - not bitter like hops but bitter like those inedible little bird-cherries. Very interesting but not wholly successful.

Due to the aging of the beer the aroma is faint but of wood; sour fruits and oak sherry. The colour is red and shines through well,. the taste is good, I couldn’t stop thinking that this beer should be aged for five years and would LOVE to compare it with Thomas O’Hardy’s . Brewdog definitely have an aged winner on their hands with this one and the fruit of cherries and the raspberries goes so well. This is the most interesting Abstrakt yet and one which I think should be stored away. The oak is really good and balances against the fruits with a subtle edge which gets high praise. Refreshing for the abv, low carbonation.

KimJohansen (10350) - Frederiksberg C, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2010
Clear reddish amber with a medium beige head. Aroma had raspberries, soda and not much more. Sweet flavor with plenty of raspberries, malt and hops that gave it a dry finish.

ladnewton (1474) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 7, 2010
On tap at the Rake, London on 7th September 2010. Amber with little or no head. Notes of marshmallow, sour strawberry and raspberry fruit, deep earthy maltiness. A mildly bitter finish, and a deep, wholemouth texture. Rather better than I had expected.

A Mes rate. Tap at the Rake.
Rich amber with a thin white head. Tart fruit and not much else to be honest. Faint sourness and plenty of depth but it just doesn’t seem to go anywhere. Pleasant malty base giving some slighty balancing sweetness but the tremendously tart fruit just takes over. More fruit in the finish. Erm, yeah it’s fruity. One thing is for certain this is effortlessly drinkable for an 11% beer. I quite like it, I just can’t get too excited about it.

Chopp. Quite hazy deep red colour, small white looking head. Fruity sweet (straw)berry bit woody aroma. Good mouthfeel. Pleasant sweet fruity (straw)berry woody flavour. Sweet fruity finish. Hides the alc. dangerously well.
