Opaque and very dark brown beer. Small brown head. Fruit and mellow whisky nose. Semi dry and crispy palate. Mellow whisky and a little wood. Joins up nicely with the raspberry - blackberry flavours of the tayberries. Fruity finish with mild minerals and mellow whisky. Good stuff!

allmyvinyl (9954) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 25, 2017
Bottle thanks to cgarvieuk. Pours dark ruby brown with no head. Big fruit aromas though, seems to have held up quite well. Lots of berry notes. Taste is cherry and chocolate. Bit of spritz wouldve been nice, but you cant have everything.

Werckmeister (2562) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 27, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2016 0,375l bottle at Vienna Tasting shared by Cuso, big thanks. Bottle 86 of 760. black color, small tan head. smells of oxidation, peppery, spices, some berry notes. ok. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes of raspberry, quite alcoholic, spices, some coffee, light oxidation. finishes alcoholic with notes of raspberry and some spices. OKish, not a big fan.

Gurthnar (5379) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle at Vienna tasting February 2016. Many thanks! On the first sight you can see this has at least a bit of carbonation. Aroma reveals some raspberry, and it also manifests in taste. However it is overall too dry and empty for me and the alcohol is kicking too much.

McNeillR (2276) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2013
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2013 Dark auburn, no head. So soft now. Buckets of tayberry, ripples of Sharp sweetness. Tight tart slalom of moreish wisened malt and very trickly berry in the gaps. Finish is mouth of roof, cartoony panel beating back and forth. This had aged for its ABV better than any Abstrakt. One of my favourites of all time now, thanks for digging this out Craig.Big rusty amber body with boozy listless head.

Bottle, Brewdog Garvie Gauntlet

Bottle. Thanks Craig. Lots of berries, particularly raspberry, licorice. Taste is intense raspberry and licorice. Quite bitter and tart. A delicous beer.
