esp0r (2176) - NORWAY - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet enjoyed at home
Deep copper clear, beige head. Smells of malts, grain, some hops and hay. Heavy sweet, quite malty, alot of malty flavors, quite unusual, also quite distinct yeast flavor. Light to moderate bitter finish, some hay and grass there. Not anything near my expectation as an Abstrakt,. To easy, want some more complexity. Maybe i expect too much from Brewdog?

HogTownHarry (6199) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - AUG 14, 2012
375ml green corked&caged bottle shared by garthicus with me and blankboy. Bottle # 5758. Clear bright peach-rbuy, smallish off-white head. Booze, sweet, a bit earthy and vegetal - weird, harsh. Taste follows, yes sweet, but it comes together - very strong, fruity, pungently herbal - holy crap, so much better. Syrupy, slick, boozy, stingingly carbonated, quick finishing, boozy sweet and sweaty aftertaste. All over the map, but the taste was cool.

jesperhammer (3315) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2012
27-JUL-2012, bottle @home from Ølbutikken. Clear amber with tan head. Barley wine aroma with caramel, flowers, orange peel, and alcohol. Taste the same with additional notes of bitter hops and then a little "roast" but not nearly enough to make me think stout. Nice body. Too sweet. Finish a little hoppy bitter. Fine experience. Nice try guys:-)

larsga (6500) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2012
Small white head doesn’t last. Clear amber body. Deep strawy syrupy caramel aroma with dusty earthy fruity notes. Feels like chocolate, too. Dry-sweet dusty earthy caramelly taste with chocolatey fruity notes. Fullish body. Mostly mild. Dryish dusty earthy strawy caramelly aftertaste with funky chocolatey sherry notes. Nice, interesting, sippable, unusual. This beer confuses me, but I enjoy it anyway. (0.375l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo. Bottle 5670 of 7902.)
