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.

Holmen1 (3412) - 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.

larsga (6680) - 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.)
