COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned - Limited edition release (9819 bottles)
AB:11 is an imperial black barley wine brewed with ginger, black raspberries and chipotle peppers. A 12.8% rollercoaster of ginger zestiness, chipotle smokiness all bound together with dark berry tartness and the decadent residual body of a black barley wine.

Not at all impressed with this beer. Abstrakt 10 was much better. Smells great, but also strange, tastes good and is strong in flavor. The aftertaste is empty unfortunately. I thought it would last longer. This is bottle 651 of 9819 that I drink.
