AgentAle (1807) - Alberta, CANADA - NOV 23, 2014
Aroma is plum, raisin, beligian sugar candy and rich malts. Taste is a deep rich maltiness that is accompanied by a dark fruity body that leaves a nice warm liquor feeling. Light earthy hoppiness fairly pale. Appearance is a dark murky brown/amber with small sediment in suspension. Head is thin and retains fairly poorly. Cam_Dynamite (119) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 19, 2014
Man this is an interesting beer. Pours exactly like coca cola. The nose is great, full of red wine, rich chocolate, fruity and BOOZE! First thing that hit me on tasting was port. Then followed some chocolate, cherries and dark fruits with a woody note in there too. Real syrupy mouthfeel. I think great beer - had it with a roast and enjoyed. I can see how it would be polarising though. The_Osprey (8722) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2014
375ml bottle #6676/9987, cork, 11.5%. Black, small ring of white head. Aroma is sherry, raspberry, tulip flowers, some alcohol. Body is medium, smooth, not foamy. Very smooth body. Taste is tangy coffee syrup, malty, semisweet, tannic, no bitterness. Nice red wine character. Smooth as you like. One of the best I’ve had in the Abstrakt series (not that that’s saying much, but this one is smooth and drinkable). Stuu666 (14563) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 15, 2014

Pours dark red color with no head. Very vinous on the nose, dark berries, some sugary notes and vanilla, maybe some distant port notes. Sweet caramel and plums on the flavor, faint licorice, port wine notes with vanilla, alcohol comes through but keeps at bay. Smooth palate. Better than I expected.
37,5 cl bottle @ lusikka. Bottle #8617/9987, bottled 20.06.2012tiong (7516) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 11, 2014
Aroma has licorice, spices and some ripe fruits. Feels medicine-like. Flavour is rather medicine-like with strong licorice tones, some saltiness, sweet malts and spicy tones. Also quite strong woody tones – and perhaps porto tones. Not the most typical ASA and also too sweet. Smoothness is nice here anyway.

Bottled 20.06.12, bottle #8617/9987 - Pours pitch black with no head. Aroma of red wine, malaga, oak, medicinal notes, some malts and spices. Taste is sweet, vinous, woody and malty with some oaky notes. Finish is sweet, syrupy, oaky and vinous with some woody notes. Quite heavy and vinous.
A dark brown ale with a very thin mocha head. In aroma, loads of dark fruits, candy sugar, grassy British hops, vinous character, very nice and smooth. In mouth, a beautiful vinous malt, raisins, surranated hops, licorice, alcohol warmth, beautiful and delicious. #OttBottShare. Thanks Marissa. Vighals (4388) - SÃ¸rumsand, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2014
