4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Cette bière a énormement de caractère , un arome a la fois fruité mais aussi subtile , avec un petit coté les premiers sont les derniers , je ne peux plus m’en passer ... Une bière de caractère à déguster avec sagesse ..

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Keg and possibly bottle at the launch night at the White Horse, Parsons Green. By far the best beer in the Abstrackt series so far (in my view). Black with a tan head. Wonderfully complex and hugely drinkable for it’s high strength. Couldn’t really detect the chilli but the warming alcohol, woody chocolate roast and dried fruits danced on my tong. The finish was still surprisingly hoppy. World class!

Bottle. Im really impressed with how the chillies are used in this beer. A good complement to a beer that otherwise is on the sweet side. Notes of chocolate, caramel and licorice. Smooth.

Botteld. A pitch black beer with a huge very dark brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, soy sauce, coffee, and chilis. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of chilis leaving a light burn on the palate, combined with medium notes of chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and alcohol, leading to a dry, roasted, and chili like finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample from a 375 ml bottle. Body is jet black, topped by a dark choco head slowly fading to a ring of bubbles. Vinous aroma of hard roasted malts, strong coffee and dark chocolate. Some wooden notes, barely noticable alcohol. Taste is utterly complex. Armloads of roasted dark malts. Coffee and chocolate, wood and vanilla. Some cherry tones, and hints of alcohol. The chillies added is difficult to pin-point. They merge well with the alcohol and provides a hot, yet rounded mouthfeel. Thick and oily texture. Big and beautiful, and fully balanced. A very nice one.
