COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The beer is an 11.5% Imperial Brown Ale which we have aged in amazing Spanish sweet red barrels from Malaga. Stewart Bowman, our Head Brewer, devised an Imperial Brown Ale designed to perfectly complement the wine flavours and extract maximum depth and character from the giant barrels. We also felt the Imperial Brown Ale was ideally suited to be barrel aged and as well as the infusion of the Malaga wine character will also benefit added complexity and maturity from the time in oak.

TheJestersBeer (2382) - SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2015
375ml bottle, #6298. Pours a deep brown, with almost no head. Complex, mature aroma, caramel, chocolate, wood, vanilla, earth, toffee. Semi-sweet, full bodied, mid bitterness, low CO2. Complex, mellow taste, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, wood, dark raspberry fruit, cinnamon, licorice, faint smoke. Quite well balanced, slightly over the hill, but still very enjoyable.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - NOV 17, 2015
Scuro color marrone, schiuma poco persistente. Pungente, nocciolata, maltosa e fruttata; gusto dolciastro, vinoso e meno rotondo dell’atteso, corpo medio, effervescenza debole.

patricks110 (2409) - Alberta, CANADA - SEP 16, 2015
Cellared 3 years. Pours a dark, murky and muddy burgundy brown with a thin few bubble thick head. Oily alcohol legs on the glass, no carb. The nose is rich and sweet with a very earth based malt aroma. Wood, light fruity notes, vanilla, espresso bean and richly roasted malts. The flavour is much lighter and silky smooth with a moderate alcohol presence on the finish. Vanilla and espresso bean are very subtle with a light roasted malt bitterness. Nicely done.

From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Nice sweet and boozy brew with vinous notes.

11.5% ABV Again with the velvet gloved alcoholic fist. Then a soothing berry laced wheaty ride all the way to the end then a surprising finish that can only be described as umami. Of course there are the obvious luo han guo flavor notes. The 10 has a taste of jasmine green tea?! Overall a very euphoric experience today. I don’t exactly know why. I think it had to do with the fact that I had the 10 on an empty stomach. More likely that my constitution just found a better balance between 11.5% ABV and the gustation of a finely crafted Abstrakt. Finally, it could be the small differences in each batch that could have accounted for the impression that this 10 was lighter on the palate, had a more fruity and less musky nose and finished a little cleaner, hinting of a pale ale finish.

Vignale (3259) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 30, 2015
Flaska från SB. Ett väldigt litet pys när korken går av. Riktigt mörkbrun, inget skum. Stor söt doft. Mycket sherry, madeira och sött rött dessertvin, mjuk choklad, torkad frukt, russin, farinsocker. Tycker den åldrats på ett bra sätt vilket inte kan sägas om alla Abstrakt. Smakerna hänger ihop väl och sötman är stor men funkar bra med smakerna. Perfekt till ost, småkakor eller de flesta desserter.
