_angst_ (3036) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2014
AB 6 Bottle courtesy of Hugh. Pours reddish black with a very small dark moch head that quickly dissipates without leading any trace on the glass. Smell is sweet, earth and herbal with roasted malts, grapefruit rinds, dark roast coffee, pine needles, resinous wood, moist grass and hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty, earthy and herbal with roasted malts, burnt caramel, resinous wood, moist grass, pine needles, moist soil, sweetened coffee and alcohol. Mouthfeel is viscous, syrupy, boozy, astringent and near full bodied. Finish is heavy bitter with roasted malts, dark roast coffee, resinous wood, pine needles, moist soil, liquorice and burnt caramel. Huge but I imagine this is way past it’s prime,

daje (2609) - NORWAY - APR 14, 2014
Bottle shared by esp0r with me and edvard, september 27th 2013. Pretty dark brown body, thick light brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, ash, piney hops. Taste is slightly sweet chocolate with coffee, licorice and earthy hops. Noticable alcohol. Thick body and medium carbonation. Leaves an aftertaste of prunes and licorice. Enjoyable, but I guess it’s a lot fresher when young.

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.

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.

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.
