Ethereal (2417) - Los Angeles, California, USA - APR 2, 2014
Keg at the AB:06 launch at the Euston Tap, with Scopey and MesandSim. Deep, deep ruby/near black with a little bit of white head. Nose has roasted malt, tar, sugars. Palate is rather tarry and sticky but not massively so. Lots of sweet resin in the middle of the tongue. Coffee and cough medicine hints. Alcohol well hidden, not too boozy. Needs to age and grow, you feel.

snoworsummer (2337) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 28, 2014
From a bottle. Pours a murky root beer color with almost no head or lacing. Tastes like tobacco, earthy, dry, light raisin and light ash, and roasted grains and coffee as it warms. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like roasted grains, raisins, tobacco, and booze.

Medium body and carbonation.

Xerrol (1) - - MAR 21, 2014 does not count
Pours nearly black with a head that fades completely away quickly. Aroma has roasted maltiness and really strong hoppiness - a special combination - with notes of grass, pine and licorice. Taste is similar with strongly hopped Imperial Stouts as it is both very bitter and richly malty. The taste is sweet and roasty at first; the finish is dry and bitter. Flavours of dark malts, grassy hops and licorice. The palate is nearly full bodied, the carbonation low. An excellent, complex and a really strong beer. One of my top 5 beers of all time.

Backlog. Tasted at a vertical tasting of the first six abstracts released. Bottles from Systembolaget. More fun experiment than good beer.

angel77 (1062) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 13, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl numero 4626 de 8973 de 16-05-2011. tomada en la cantina renfe en agosto de 2013. Me esperaba mas de esta imperial black ipa, algo mas de amargor por ejemplo, pero en general no está del todo mal. Sabores tostados y quemados con un cuerpo medio-alto y un paso por boca bastante ligero y poco denso. Sensación alcohólica bastante buena con 11.2 vol muy intensos. Color negro intenso con poca espuma oscura y poco persistente. Podía aspirar a algo mas.
