GreatDane1632 (1058) - Alabama, USA - JUL 18, 2015
Bottle poured into a fluted glass -- aroma was pleasant and powerful. Strong aged caramel/vanilla on the nose. Good looking cloudy color. A nice drink. Flavor followed the aroma through, not a very deep beer, but it was very nice. Definitely something to drink and converse or discuss. Well worth it.

Gluepot (135) - Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2015
A soft tan head on a dark brown body. The nose is powerful featuring brown sugar, some sourness, booze, dark berries and a touch of vanilla. The Abstrakt series has a range of strengths, but hitting complex dark tastes is its strongest. This one is up there with the best of them. The taste profile features dark brown sugar, figs, dates, caramel and tobacco. There is little if any Belgian yeast but undertastes of nutmeg, plums, caramel, vanilla and balancing hops add to this dark taste adventure. One of the very best.
