The unplugged series is one Wisconsin people love! Abt is a very dark brown beer with a strong taste. But while it does have a quite bitter taste it does drink rather smooth. Certainly worth a try seeing as they only make it once!

Deep brown beer, semi transparent. Tiny white head. Crispy palate. Sweet malt turning creamy. A little herb and coca cola in the undertone. Finishes smooth with a little vanilla ice cream! An odd concoction of a beer. Not horrible at all but a clunky mixture of disparate flavours.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle, pours an opaque dark reddish brown with a small beige head. Aroma of dark red fruits, brown sugar, and syrupy caramel malt. Flavour is quite strong, with loads of caramel malt, brown sugar, maple syrup and a Belgian yeasty twang. Kind of light bodied for the style, with a brown sugar and Belgian yeast finish. Decent stuff, but nowhere close to the best quads.

Pours chestnut cola, good clarity. No head and only slight lacing. nose- raisins and burnt brown sugar. taste- plums and an odd welch red grape juice followed by drying sugary finish. Carbonation is good, quite light bodied for such a sweet brew. Pretty average
