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.

spacecube (806) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 27, 2013
Bottle from Brewdog Leeds, black pour, in the nose ginger, cola, figs, raisin, quite sweet, but nice, goes well with dessert. Low carbonation. Unusual flavours, rich and vinous. Pleasant enough.

Holmen1 (2378) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2013
Flaske(nr. 5140) fra polet: mørk som arvesynden med sjokolademousse på toppen. Aroma av bjørnebær, solbær, litt ingefær og et streif av røykmalt. Saftig, stor smak og lang ettermsmak hvor en touch av chipotle (tørket, røkt mexikansk chili) og ingefæren balanserer maltsødmen og gjør det riktig så lekkert. en meningsfylt ølopplevelse med følelse av eksklusivitet. Må kjøpe en for lagring.

Bottle 375ml @ haakonm
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of malt, ginger, chocolate, caramel, fruits and alcohol. Taste is heavy sweet and medium bitter with a long warm, fruity, chocolate and spicy finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

larsga (6179) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2013
Medium beige head. Opaque black body goes deep dark hazy brown at edge. Herbal dried fruit aroma with meaty cloves notes. Dry-sweet intensely spicy cardamom and cinnamon taste with chocolatey laquer and tropical wood notes. Full-bodied. Soft, yet quite hot and spicy mouthfeel. Dry-sweetish spicy cardamom and lacquer aftertaste with alcoholic cardamom, cloves and lavender notes. Nice. Highly drinkable, harmonic, and interesting, even if it is a bit high in alcohol. (0.375l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

BeerCast_Rich (1863) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 20, 2013
[375ml bottle, Appellation Wines, Edinburgh] As a style, ’black barley wine’ sounds completely ridiculous, but the infusion of ginger, chipotle and raspberries make it even more outré. This, however, results in a fantastic aroma – ageing these AB releases doesn’t half produce some fantastic combinations. Ginger and earthy chilli smoke. Tastewise, it was exactly like eating a chocolate-covered piece of candied ginger. A delight [18022013]

Bov (9467) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - FEB 18, 2013
from Erzbierschof - black beer under an elusive dark beige foam; aroma of roasted malts, nougat and alcohol; notes of fruity hops; thick and full-bodied, pretty sweet, moderate carbonation and very tasty; some late and solid bitterness; long aftertaste of ashes, nuts and with a warming alcohol touch

onkelgobber (150) - Edinburgh, - FEB 18, 2013
Nose is somewhere between nice ginger and shoe polish. Pleasant is you leave it alone. Pours fairly dark with a small beige head. Very sweet with some herbal hints. Very unbalanced. Finish is bitter greens and not so pleasant
