COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s time for our interpretation of the classic Italian tiramisu dessert - AB:20. A blend of an epic English barley wine brewed with coffee, oats and milk.

AB:20 has a deep and alluring nose of molasses, brandy and a spicy hit from the rum cask. On the palate are rich, decadent flavours of coffee bean, chocolate and vanilla. Expect a full bodied and chewy brew with notes of caramel and biscuit. This beer gains complexity as it warms in the glass. Enjoy!

limbonicartbeer (125) - - OCT 26, 2017
Cerveza color cafe claro de baja carbonatacion con corona de espuma prácticamente nula. Aroma a maltas tostadas, café, caramelo, cierto toque alcoholico tipo ron. Al paladar cerveza fe cuerpo completo, cremosa, con notas a café, maltas tostadas, frutos secos, caramelo con un toque dulce que perdura en el retrogusto junto con el toque alcoholico que calienta el paladar, el cual está muy disimulado teniendo en cuenta el ABV de la cerveza. Cerveza muy compleja y excelente la cual mejora conforme se calienta en la copa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: OCT 16, 2017 Taste at Brewdog Brussels. It’s very creative style beer, but I will not recommend this beer for everyone. The difference in preference will be severe. Very Sweet with Coffee, dried raisin, caramel, milk aroma. There is heat from rum-cask.

gyllenbock (9852) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2017
Sample at SBWF 2017. Hazy brownish with a minimal head. Very sweet with toffee, light oak, some fruit and vanilla. The body was full and the finish long.

explosivedog (1616) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 4, 2017
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2017 375ml bottle. Pours deep brown. Alcohol heat dominates the nose, little coffee, little sweet milk, more heat, caramel. Nice idea, and I do like it, but I feel the idea could have been implemented a little better.

wiedrzensky (951) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - SEP 4, 2017
Bottle. Pours dark ruby with no head. Aroma of roasted barley malts, coffee, almond, cream. Heavy malty background, heavy sweet, spicy on tongue. Heavy body, slick texture, flat carbonation.

3.3
ansalon (4121) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2017
Pours a murky brown with no head that frankly looks quite unappetizing. Aromas of caramel, roasted nuts, vanilla, coffee, cookie dough. Taste is very sweet with coffee and caramel upfront and some vanilla and toffee later. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation. No, interesting but not that good.

nosajhongkong (91) - North Point, HONG KONG - JUL 30, 2017
0,375L bottle bought at HK Brewcraft. Bottle Number : 15799 of 45800 Appearance: Pours a dark caramel-brown colour with minimal head. Aroma: Strong and sweet nose, with caramel, brown sugar, coffee, chocolate. Some molasses, rum and alcoholic booze. Mild dried fruits, raisins and plums. Taste: Intense and heavy sweetness of brown sugar, syrup and caramelised malt. Some roasted malt and coffee bitterness can also be detected. Some alcoholic warmth (rum-like) when swallow. Palate: Creamy, silky texture. Full body. Lingering coffee and caramelised malt aftertaste, with some dark fruits and an alcoholic finish ( given it’s a 14.2% beer!) Overall: Strong, intense and an very sweet brew. It certainly requires some time to finish it due to its higher ABV. A complex and uncommon brew. If you have a sweet tooth and like Tiramisu a lot, this is the beer for you!

SimonBlok (765) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2017
37,5cl bottle, courtesy of Gyhallmanti, bottle no. 15692. Appearance: deep copper with almost no head. Aroma: madame Jeanette pepper, earthy, plant material, oats. Taste: high sweetness and medium bitterness. Notes of oats, madame Jeanette pepper aromaticity (without the spiciness), slightly dairy, almonds and a short note of amaretto liquor. Palate: full bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. Not much resemblance with tiramisu though.
