Dark brown color with very little carbonation left. It seems that the Abstrakt beers don’t keep the carbonation that well as this is not the only one that is almost completely flat. Perhaps it has something to do with the quality of the plastic corks used?
The aroma has a huge hit of sweet malts, and some hints from the hops. There is not much left of the original hoppy aroma.
I’m picking up liquorice, caramel and some fruity hints. I’m not picking up any alcohol at all.
I’m getting some dark fruits and a good amount of malty sweetness. There are some hints left from the hops as well, but as in the aroma there is not much left. There are some small hints of tropical fruit as well.
Long and bitter finish with nice hoppy flavors up front and some sweet malts and liquorice that lasts all the way.
This beer could need some more carbonation to make it less demanding, but it’s still a good beer, but far away from what it was like when it was fresh. Score: 3.7/5.
