Enteogenisk (156) - Bålsta, SWEDEN - AUG 14, 2016
Bottle in wine glass. Pours muddy brown with close to no carbonation. The aroma is much stronger. Soft hints of chocolate toffee and it pretty much stays there on the palate as well. After two years in the bottle it has become quite shy, but still elegant in a way. What I find interesting though is how it feels a bit watered down, like there’s a splash coming on the tail, even though it is close to 11% ABV.

danlo (2596) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - AUG 11, 2016
375ml bottle from Brewdog online store. Dark reddish brown colour with a thin tan foam head leaving alittle lacing. Aroma of bready malt, molasses, caramel, raisins, chocolate. Taste is fruit cake, sweet, with caramel, treacle, dried fruits, raisins, some chocolate, coffee and earthy bitterness. Smoothish mouthfeel, medium bodied, low soft carbonation, dry warm roast bitter finish. Quite drinkable.

OminouSC2 (462) - Mora, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2016
The palate of the Abstrakt series is rarely good, it feels thin and fizzy even though carbonation is often low. Same thing with this one. Otherwise I like it, the aromas are very subtle, with some sweet fruit cake, chocolate and coffee. The taste is good, really good! Balanced Abt/Quad with a hint of bitter coffee in the background. A good beer!

hohops (821) - Kent, ENGLAND - JUN 18, 2016
Appearance- dark, mahogany, ruby tinge, not much head to speak of, just a few off-white bubbles. Aroma- port, red wine, fruitcake, cherry skins, caramel, dark fruit, boozy hints, slight nuttiness, marzipan, wine again. Quite a lot going on. Taste- Madeira wine, sweet fruitcake, coffee and chocolate, raisin and cherry, burnt cherry cake, treacle, almond, marzipan. Mouthfeel is juicy and flat, and pretty thin. Lots of flavours in here, let down a bit by the mouthfeel.

Night_Cap (119) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - MAY 16, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2016 Bottle 330ml (2014) - cellared for 2 years. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a muddy dark brown. Head is small, off white and quickly dissipates. Aroma is rich and complex with notes of dusty rum chocolate cake, burnt caramel sauce, muscatels, sticky dates, vanilla, wood, coffee and some spices. Flavour is smooth with a very light roasted bitterness, red wine, chocolate, caramelized prunes, overripe figs, creamy oak and some light raisin toasty notes towards the finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation, slightly syrupy texture and a long warming finish. Amazingly well hidden ABV!
