Tide (4564) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 12, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2018 Bottle from Brewdog. Black color, beige head. Bitter taste with coffee, roasted malts, toffee, chocolate, nuts, dark fruits and a bit of licorice. Bitter finish with roasted malts, dark fruits, toffee, chocolate, coffee and licorice. Very nice imperial porter. Karelbeersindral (138) - CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 11, 2018
A complex mix of caramel, dark chocolate and burn coffee, but way too strong in alcohol and sweetness. The_Osprey (9670) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2018
Keg at Brewdog Shepherd's Bush as BrewDog Abstrakt AB:24, 12%. Opaque black with a ring of brown head. Aroma is really big chocolate truffle and roasted malts, some cola vibes. Body is light and a little frothy with soft carbonation. Taste is rum and cola, rounded chocolate biscuits, touch of strawberry I reckon, like a strawberry and rum infused chocolate digestive biscuit. Body is a bit thin. Alcohol is not mega noticeable. Still, I think it's a little thin and boozy all considered. Good but hoping for a little more. (8-4-7-3-15=3.7) ChrisOfstad (446) - Hamar, NORWAY - JAN 5, 2018

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2017 Bottle grow the Dog online. I’m really getting into stouts and porters interspersed with IPAs, they compliment one another well. So this one is black, Bible-black with a light fawn head. A choccy aroma, sweet and breadth. The taste is complex with malts, cocoa, blackcurrant and stone fruit, also vanilla, caramel and treacle. Worth the price tag. deepdrinker (364) - Leeds, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2017
