4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Market, Coddingtown, Santa Rosa, California. Pours a dark brown color with reddish hues and a giant long-legged off-white head that diminishes slowly into a perfect lacing and film. Smell is yeasty, fruity with some earthy and lactic touches. Very complex! It has notes of toffee, milk, dulce-de-leche, blueberries, blackberries, black currants, raisins, overripe apples, liquor, banana with palm syrup, sour cherries... I could keep going all day. The earthy smell is more obvious after a while. Taste is incredibly complex and intense, showing different aspects in every part of the mouth. Sweet and fruity flavor that shows notes of berries, cognac, honey, toffee, earth and nuts. This is a collossal Abt. Highly warming, it leaves a trail of warmth down the throat and the esophagus. Finish shows some booze. Different and so much more complex than anything else I’ve tried so far.

Bottle, aged 2.5 years, deep brown color with dark red reflex, lightly tan head, not very persistent,.

Color is dark brown, with a beige head. The aromas of caramel and malt are dominant. Dark chocolate, plums and raisins can be distinguished in the taste, combined with a tender vinous touch. Although the beer has an ABV of 11,3%, it is very smooth to drink. Top class beer. Best beer I ever drank.
