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

Hazy amber with a low white head - huge wood and vanilla aroma - The wood and the vanilla olso dominates the taste, but there is some hints of malts in the back - Finish is again all wood and vanilla - Interersting and nice

Una weizen bock??? Secondo me questa birra supera questo stile integrandolo con una cascata di luppoli e con un’invecchiatura sopraffina che la rende una birra assolutamente magnifica.
