From Brewdog’s (Scotland) Abstrakt Concept Beer line comes their “Abstrakt AB:10” an Imperial Brown Ale that has been aged in Spanish Red Wine Barrels. Only 9872 Bottles were produced of this beer and I had bottle 4129. The beer pours a deep brown semi opaque colour with an off white head. The aroma is of dark fruits, molasses, oak and some wine. The flavour consists of Dark fruits like prunes, caramel, oak, molasses and a hint of wine and alcohol. The alcohol content of this interesting brew is 11.5%.
Commercial Description: The beer is an 11.5% Imperial Brown Ale which we have aged in amazing Spanish sweet red barrels from Malaga. Stewart Bowman, our Head Brewer, devised an Imperial Brown Ale designed to perfectly complement the wine flavours and extract maximum depth and character from the giant barrels. We also felt the Imperial Brown Ale was ideally suited to be barrel aged and as well as the infusion of the Malaga wine character will also benefit added complexity and maturity from the time in oak.
