angel77 (1093) - 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.

Scottishchris (249) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 7, 2014
Bottle from Brewdog online I think. Pours coke colour with thin caramel head. Big oily resin nose. Thick sugary mouthfeel. Lightly roasted, balanced bitterness. This is much better than the last Abstrakt I had (05 I think?).

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2013
From notes. Poured almost black, with essentially no head. Aroma of plum, apple, burnt nuts, grass, pine and hints of licorice. Sweet taste, with a dry, roasty somewhat bitter finish. Decent.

daknole (9443) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2013
Dark brown pour, tan head. Resinous flavors, roasted malt, cocoa powder, grapefruit peel. Ok.

teorn88 (3023) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Taster from bottle. Found a cellared stash at La Cantinetta, Rimini. It pours a deep dark brown colour with minimal off white head. Aroma is big on tropical fruits and alcohol. Mango and pineapple sorrounded by whisky. Taste is well balanced between hoppy bitter notes and liqueur sweetness. Still very fruity. Medium to thin mouthfeel with carbonation. Still very good.

Ferris (5002) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Bottle - Vintage ?? - Perfumy citrus and pine. Black with a thin beige head. Flowery citrus and pine translate into taste with a roast malt in the background. Although booze is there it is masked well and works with the sweetness. There is next to no bitterness and is very dry. Unfortunately there is no carbonation left which ruins it a bit.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle shared @ Dak’s Black Friday tasting. Dark mahogany pour with chestnut edges and an obsidian core. Roasted malt, aged hops, slight citrus, evergreen, and cocoa. Bitter. ABV is well hidden.

Corked 37.5 cl bottle @ home (bottle #4945). Pours black with some sediment and no head. Aroma and flavour is faded hops (if that makes any sense), fruit, malt, and liquorice – with a slightly bitter finish.
