4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
1/3 pint at Brewdog Newcastle. Dark, dark brown with a tan head. Aroma of dark fruit and apples. Massive flavours of dried fruit, chocolate and licquorice. Full bodied, thick textured, and just all-round delicious. Alcohol noticable, but not intrusive. Best beer I’ve had in a long time.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear brown, short off-white head. Aroma is lots of dark fruit, caramel, yeast, Belgian candy. Taste is sweet candy, bread, dark fruits. Body is a bit thin, but drinks very easy and the alcohol is well hidden, but it’s too sweet for my liking.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear black beer with thin film of foam that leaves good creamy lacing which does not stay long but looks great, no gaps. Good aroma has bit ash, salty licorice, chocolate and herbs, bit alcohol, pure and lively aromas. Medium body, fizzy carbonation, ash, round feel, bit Belgian feel but with Mikkeller touch, long finish is tasty and nuanced, sweet and bitter. Glad is chose tjis for beer 800: welldone beer, nuanced, lively and balanced and interesting. Rerating: pouring myself gives huge creamt rocky and long head and bit different lacing.

Brun foncé et col genereux.
Des tonnes de caramel, de fruits noirs, de pain.
La saveur est très douce, mais pas écoeurante.
On sent bien l’alcool
une bonne Abt

Medium dark brown. Fizzy, off white head. Sugar, malt and alcohol nose. Very quadruple-like. Sweet, some bitterness. Quite thick mouth feel, fizzy carbonation. Sugar, sugar, malt, alcohol, plum, red fruit, truffle, earthy aromas. Too sugary, over the top. Everything else is top shelf quadruple.

On tap @ Mikkeller. Dark brown/amber pour with a khaki head. Really nice malt sweetness. Tons of caramel, dark fruit, raisin, banana, and brown sugar. Notes of cherry and grape. Light spice and alcohol. Flavor is quite sweet, but not cloying. Big caramel, brown sugar, cherry, and grape. Some raisin, plum, and spice (clove) notes. Banana, yeast, and a bit of alcohol. Drinks pretty good.

Preta com nuances vermelhas, com espuma creme de boa formação e persistência. Aroma de frutas vermelhas, passas, ameixa e caramelo. Sabor de caremelo, chocolate amargo, com final seco e amargor torrado persistente. Muito boa.
