COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A salt caramel popcorn imperial ale. Bourbon and rum barrel aged, this 12.8% ale has complex and twisting flavours. Bitter caramel, wood, smoke, spice, treacle and vanilla are all present and intertwine against a smooth and lightly chewy mouthfeel. The salt caramel popcorn lends subtle hints of a smoky brininess.

minutemat (1823) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2014
375ml bottle from brewdog.com. Pours black with very thin tan head. Was expecting a big hit of salted caramel in the nose, but got nothing whatsoever. No salted caramel in the taste either. Feel a bit ripped off. Still, a lovely sumptuous Imperial Stout, nonetheless.. just a bit disappointing.

panacea (88) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2014
Pours very dark brown with a almost nonexisting head. Nose is incredible! Vanilla, caramel fudge, raisins, maple syrup, creme brulé. Taste is not as impressive. Very boozy. Some sour tartness, almost like a berry wine. Medium to thin body. Very interesting and fine tasting beer indeed as always with Abstrakt but nothing super special.
