Har varit jätte uppspelt över denna ölen. Haft den ett tag och gått och sneglat på den varje dag. Söt, alkohol och rätt tjock.

Dark brown liquid with a small white head. Aroma is roasty and caramelly. Taste is alot of ginger, and not much else. Feels like I am in a sushibar. Worst abstrakt so far in my opinion. (Tried 6-11)

My first abstrakt. Pours a dark brown colour with a white head. funky aroma of ginger, malts, spruce and some roastedness. Flavour is really interesting; ginger is really present, maybe a bit too much, there is a quiet notable leather and licorice taste, together with wet grass, coffee and dough. A bit too thin on the palate in my opinion, which really supprised me. Low carbonation, and a smooth mouthfeel. It really changes character when it warms up a bit, much more round taste and better balance. I did know this was a hate/love beer. For me it was hate at first, but that slowly went over to the other side after some sips.

This is my 3rd abstrakt, 07 and 12 were my first and second in 2012 and 2013. I dont get the hype about these beers. They tasted nothing special. Rather not good, really hard to drink. Dark black color, medium carbonation, nice bitterness, dark chocolate and coffee aromas. Strong alcohol aftertaste, which is not my beer style. It will take long to drink this beer

Bottle @ NK Saluhall. Black colour with a tan head. Sweet malt, pine, floral aroma. Flavour is... well not good. Tried to give it away but no luck.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 29, 2013 Nagyon stt barna, ha nem tesszk kzvetlen fny el, akkor bizony teljesen feketnek tűnik. Habja vkony, srgs sznű s gyorsan otthagy bennnket. Illata sszetett, desks, nagyon fűszeres, ezekből is főleg a gymbr a főnk, de n mg rzek benne , / esne le a krmm / egy kis kaport is, vanlia, dohny fst, stt erdei bogyk s egy kis likőrssg. zben is tombol a gymbr, de tnyleg ott a chipotle paprika is, a maga enyhe cspőssgvel s fstssgvel, rezni a maltt, desebb dohnyt, az erdei gymlcsket, lesztőt s sz alkoholt. Testes, olajos s szinte alig van benne bubork. Utze fűszeres, keserdes, picit fanyar s szraz. Bonyolult s rdekes darab, ami igen klnleges, de idő kell, mg befogadja az ember.

38cl, Bottle 4941/9819, new exclusive Scottish brew Anno 2012, with ginger, chili pepers and black raspberries, from Saveur Bire Lille, very complex brew, sweet/spicy and slightly alcoholic/roasted, not too heavy, balanced, hazy, good head, very good brew, yet very expensive!

I was a little hesitant about the chipotle smoke as i worried it would dominate however...what a well balanced beer. The beer pours black with a quick to vanish, caramel head. The aroma is giner biscuit, and far eastern food. The taste is dry, sweet, fragrant and ginger. Its a warming beer that hides its abv well. I think its not the sort of beer to drink frequently but isnt that the point of the Abstrakt series?

0,375 l bottle, Csakajsr, Budapest.
Poured deep brown with a fine creamy brown head. Strong spicey aroma with liquerice, ginger, light smoke and some herbs. Thick beer with a character of black chaos. Ginger with caramel, spiciness and liquerice, hidden smoke and ash. Really good experiance
