Bottle @Craig’s (Abstrakt tasting). Pours dark amber, almost sherry in colour. Nose is raisins, fruits, some sherry, slight petrol on the nose as well. Very little taste, needed some carb which had all gone, slightly odd nail polish remover taste to it. allmyvinyl (10480) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Bottle thanks to cgarvieuk. Lumpy amber pour with no head. Sherry-like aromas. Boozy, bit of cardboard. Taste is more of the same. Thin finish. Glad to have tried. GlasgowTAD (1768) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - JAN 24, 2017

Flasla bishops, folkungagatan Stockholm. Efterrecenserad. Ljus bärnstensfärgad vätska. Doft av fat, vanilj och lite druva. Ganska frän och något spritig smak. Cognac och torr fatkaraktär med vaniljig avslutning

Bottle shared at the Commons, from a lucky dip on reluctant scoopers charity draw, 09/11/14 #1847/3200.
Hazed orange amber with moderate off white spotting and edgeing.
Nose is dark fruit rinds, dates, earthy, woody, bitter citric notes.
Taste comprises mellow fruits, dark toffee, vanilla, spice, raisens, prunes.
Medium + body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with light alcohol.
Ok quad, fairly mellow and easy drinking but no game changer. Perhaps hasn’t aged well ? Not bad - just nothing too exciting. Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle shared by Colin. Thanks!
A: Cloudy brown, thin head, some lacing.
N: Caramel, phenols, vanilla, toffee, and a lot of oxidation.
T: Age shows itself again here. It’s sweet but starting to break down and I’m getting a fair amount of oxidation.
M: Medium body, alcohol is well hidden.
O: I like the concept behind it; wish I could have tried it a long time ago when it was fresher.It’s still tasty, but it should be drunk soon. Stuu666 (13019) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2014
Bottle at home. Pous copper, fruity nose, grapes? Sweet fruity, vanilla died off fairly quickly when aging. MattiasA (862) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2014
Backlog. Tasted at a vertical tasting of the first six abstracts released. Bottles from Systembolaget. More fun experiment than good beer. teorn88 (7671) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 27, 2013
Taster from 37.5cl bottle. It pours a deep amber colour with no head. Maybe a small ring of beige bubbles on the side of the glass. Aroma is sweet and bold with big notes of brandy and vanilla. Caramel and tobacco notes. Taste is sweet with some minor drying feeling from the yeast in the finish. Notes of caramel, vanilla, alcohol, brandy. Mouthfell is quite creamy with soft carbonation. Good overall.
