BOLTZ7555 (3018) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 8, 2014
Bottle shared via ibrew2or3 @ Woodshed 3.0! Thanks Dave! This just wasnt a good one. Fiery crimson brew with a tightly packed eggshell head that left quickly. Loads of alcohol, sticky malt, and honey-dipped hops were present. The ABV was noticeable. Meh.

Gurthnar (5282) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle. Aroma raisins, milk chocolate. Fruity. Very light coffee. Light vanilla. Mostly clear deep amber-brown colour. No head. Taste has grapes, woody notes, caramel, initially cocoa, light coffee. Alcoholic presence is strong, but what go expect at 18 ABV? Considering this fact, the ABV is well hidden. Overall very very smooth, rounded, both in taste and flavour. Very nice aged experience.

ThirstyBird (2683) - Berkhamsted, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle @ RBBSG II. Courtesy of Travlr. Thanks Gene! Pours a muddy brown with a wisp of a tan head. The smell is rich, fruity, chocolate, caramel. The taste is rich...really follows the nose with alcohol esters & dry finish...a little wood too. Medium/full body with fine carbonation. A sipper.

Backlog. Tasted at a vertical tasting of the first six abstracts released. Bottles from Systembolaget. Slightly too sweet for my palate.

teorn88 (7218) - Out of the EU, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 23, 2013
Taster from bottle at La Cantinetta. It pours a deep amber colour with a minimal tan head. Aroma is sweet and boozy with vanill, leather and caramel. Taste follow suit with more sweet whisky notes. Thick body with soft carbonation. I think this doesnt show any sign of age on it, but is probably the old Abstrakt with the less character to it.

KansaiBeerLvrs (4810) - Kyoto, JAPAN - NOV 4, 2013
At the first Kinki Beer Tasting, bottle 61 of 3600. A clear-ish brown pour with a very strong aroma of plums, figs, malts & caramel. The best aroma of the 4 Abstrakts we tried. Medium bodied with a woodsy, boozy, dark chocolate & pepper flavor. It had lots of heat and was a bit too boozy for me.

Corked 37.5 cl bottle @ home (bottle #2945). Pours murky brown with a lot of sediment and no head. Aroma and flavour is resin, pepper, pine, and caramel with a bitter and alcoholic finish.
