Bottle from brewdog bar, Sheffield. Black with no head. Aroma is treacle and tar, fruity and with tart berries and strong with whisky and oak. Very complex. Taste is syrupy sweet and tart. Surprisingly thin body but with oil, mild carbonation. Not bad, had better from the abstrakt range though.

Buongiorgio00 (892) - - NOV 13, 2014
Veramente una birra divina, con un corpo denso e ricco di note tostate che smorzano il grado alcolico, lasciando libero il palato di godere le ricche sfumature di cioccolato e bacche. Superlativa!!

laiti (5954) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
37,5 cl bottle @ lusikka. Bottle #9482/9829, bottled 12.12.2012
Aroma feels stale with ripe fruits and some berries. Also some moldy tones, raspberries, blackcurrant and fruit-like perfume tones. Flavour has dark berries, blackcurrants and some licorice. Also raspberries. Salty and medicine-like, just like other Abstrakts. At the end of the glass raspberries take over, but it does not make this any better.

375 ml bottle. Pours a black colour without a head. Aroma of roastiness, some leather and chocolate. Flavour of roasted malts, strong tart raspberry seeds, some blackcurrant juice, saltiness, bread and some spiciness. Medium bodied and a dry, sweet, juicy finish. Quite unique and pleasant.

tiong (4010) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014

Bottled 12/12/12, bottle #9482/9829 - Pours pitch black with a tiny head. Aroma of berries, wood, hints of oak and yeasty maltiness. Taste is heavy with loads of berries, whisky, wood and juicy blackcurrant notes. Finish is smooth and oaky with loads of berries and blackcurrant notes. Quite strange berry juice.

Beese (2550) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2014
Draught at BrewDog Shepherd’s Bush on 16 September. Poured a thick, pitch black, with a thin tan head. Big aroma of blackberries, dark fruit and big malt. Mouthfeel was really thick and syrup like. Complex flavours of berries, sherbet, dark chocolate and black cherry. More cherry in the finish, with burnt sugar, pastry, straw and dried fruit.

Aroma: caramel, red berries, hazelnut; Appearance: reddish brown, minimal head; Taste: medium sweetness, medium sourness, slight bitterness; Palate: long finish, soft carbonation, oily texture, full body. A Porto among beers, long-lasting taste. A bit boozy.
