3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is plum, raisin, beligian sugar candy and rich malts. Taste is a deep rich maltiness that is accompanied by a dark fruity body that leaves a nice warm liquor feeling. Light earthy hoppiness fairly pale. Appearance is a dark murky brown/amber with small sediment in suspension. Head is thin and retains fairly poorly.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Man this is an interesting beer. Pours exactly like coca cola. The nose is great, full of red wine, rich chocolate, fruity and BOOZE! First thing that hit me on tasting was port. Then followed some chocolate, cherries and dark fruits with a woody note in there too. Real syrupy mouthfeel. I think great beer - had it with a roast and enjoyed. I can see how it would be polarising though.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle #6676/9987, cork, 11.5%. Black, small ring of white head. Aroma is sherry, raspberry, tulip flowers, some alcohol. Body is medium, smooth, not foamy. Very smooth body. Taste is tangy coffee syrup, malty, semisweet, tannic, no bitterness. Nice red wine character. Smooth as you like. One of the best I’ve had in the Abstrakt series (not that that’s saying much, but this one is smooth and drinkable).
