Black and thin with a sugary sweetness. Lively with some yeast. Don’t really get much coconut or any of the unique ingredients. Sort of fies in the glass with a slight austere end. Another Abstrakt disappointment Svesse (8579) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - DEC 19, 2014
(Bottle) Black colour with brief, foamy, pale brown head. Roasted, malty nose with strong sweet espresso, liquorice, cacao, oak wood, molasses and hints of soy sauce. Malty, roasted taste with notes of strong sweet espresso, cacao, molasses, hints of coconut and a sweet, vinous finish. There’s a certain cocoa bitterness there, but mainly overshadowed by sweet malt. Full body, quite sweet. Complex and vinous, with lots of taste. Very nice. allmyvinyl (10495) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 18, 2014

Backlog. Tasted at a vertical tasting of the first six abstracts released. Bottles from Systembolaget. Slightly too sweet for me. mR_fr0g (11904) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2014
Bootle at home traded with Nick for an AB:06 ages ago. Aroma is sweet brown sugar, muscavado sugar and toffee. Dark brown black pour clear with no head. Really viscous sryupy pour legs. Flavour is sweet toffee, brown sugar and soft roast. some coconut maybe? Maybe aged this one too much. Some earthy coffee bean in the finish. Palte is full and sweet sticky with low carbonation. Hides the the alcohol well. Tasty, maybe a bit too sweet. teorn88 (7671) - Rimini, ITALY - DEC 27, 2013
Taster from a 37.5cl bottle at La Cantinetta, Rimini. It pours a deep black color with basically no head. Aroma is big on roasted malts, toasted coffe beans and light coconut notes. Little residual sweetness. Taste confirms the little sugars left and great balance of this beer with big coffee and roasted notes. Then some toasted coconut emerges and the finish is bitter with loads of coca. Mouthfeel is quite thick with soft carbonation. Overall, very good IS thewolf (12535) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 9, 2013
