BrewDog: Abstrakt AB:20 14.2% [330ml]
They say "Our interpretation of the classic Italian tiramisu dessert. A blend of an epic English barley wine brewed with coffee, oats and milk, and a twisted complex rum cask-aged imperial stout. 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, vanilla and alcohol warmth. Full bodied and chewy with notes of caramel and biscuit, this beer gains complexity as it warms in the glass."
We say "We have been aging this beauty of a boozy dessert barley wine to smooth out some of the harsher alcohol notes as part of our cellar programme. Sweet with golden toffee flavour mingling with vanilla and Cadbury???s milk chocolate, there???s a rich tea biscuit flavour too, warming spice from the molasses and earthiness from the oak. Yes it???s complex and ideal for sharing with friends as you discover new flavours with each sip, building the intricate taste of this indulgent beer."
