COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled, special series
AB:14 is the latest release in our Abstrakt series and is an oak aged Imperial Weizenbock. Expect a big, bold mouth-feel backed by some powerful banana, caramel, toffee, vanilla and spicy hits woven together with some classic weizen notes. All balanced by an eclectic yet bizarrely balanced variety of hops from America (Simcoe) the Czech (Saaz) and the UK (Bramling Cross).
The beer is at 10.2% ABV and has been aged on toasted French oak chips. As close to bannoffee pie as a beer can taste. Seriously.
This beer was the brainchild of our German Lead Brewer Franz. - See more at: http://www.brewdog.com/blog-article/impending-liquid-anarchy-some-upcoming-beers#sthash.Fvn7kB0i.dpuf

Johnstledger8 (54) - IRELAND - JAN 4, 2015
Pours a murky brown with a bubbly beige head that fades quickly. Aroma is boozy with hints of banana, toffee, some sherry like notes as well. Taste is very pleasant, less boozy than the aroma, very sweet, a lot of toffee with hints of the hops, long banoffee finish lingers. Really smooth with virtually no carbonation. Very enjoyable.

MarkoNm (987) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JAN 4, 2015
Pours a light brown hazy color, topped with a very small beige colored head. Almost no carbonation, very flat. Malty aroma, lots of caramel notes, some spices in there too and very biscuity. Taste is sweet and very biscuity, caramel with some alcohol notes present. Some bitterness in the finish. Much too sweet and too boozy.

yngwie (14630) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
Bottle, 375ml corked. It’s a hazy one, dark amber in color and with a small, dense, light beige head. It’s rather boozy on the nose, with caramel hints, resin hints, a touch of banana and even more booze. Still, quite decent. The flavor is quite sweet, with a nice bitterness in the back. Toffee, banana, booze and resins. Full body, warming and softly carbonated. Lasting boozy, bitter and sweet finish. Too sweet and boozy this one, but with some qualities anyway. 141231
