Great beer. Needed a lot of age most of the sweetness is gone. This bottle was from 2009. Aroma has a vanilla coke smell.(vanilla and caramel sweetness) taste has a rich caramel and toffee taste and with a strong rummy taste. This rich full mouth feel.

This poured a murky deep dark red to brown color with a small off white head. Aroma was of dark dried fruit, grapes, light dark chocolate and yeast. Flavor was on the sweeter side, again dried figs, some grape character, some light burnt sugar and chocolate, and a bit estery. Nice.

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.
