COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abduction in the dead of night, an eerie silence consumes the blackened sky. In an instant, BOOM, a single beam engulfs you. Panic stricken, you flee in no particular direction. It’s of little use, as you’re lifed effortlessly from the safety and comfort of the earth intoa darkness unknown. Resistance is futile. They have you now. Abduction has you now.

madvike (2905) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Pours opaque mahogany, with no head. Taste is weird, almost soured dark malt, a bit of ash, and a layer of brown sugar sweetness. Taste is ashy, gross coffee grounds, sweet malt, and a long, dirty finish. Thin and very low carbonation.

Bomber to giant snifter. Deep and dark but not thick and oily. Nice velvety carbonation. Very rich and intense roasted malt flavor.. Huge and delicious. Just the way I like them.

alexsdad06 (5904) - Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a very dark brown to black in color with a medium sized khaki head. The aroma and flavor have big roasted malt, coffee, and cocoa powder, more dark chocolate, hints of caramel with some char and earthy bitterness at the finish. More powdery than silky smooth, but very tasty.

Black with dark tan head. Really boozy aroma, some chocolate malt. Really boozy flavor too. Thin, not so great.

651mL red wax thanks to a trade. Rating #6100! Pours clear deep brown looking opaque black in the glass. Thick, rocky, sheen coffee foam. Big retention and big lace. Rich cinnamon graham cracker nose with dusty Mexican chocolate, coffee, star anise, licorice. Taste though is just a tad dusty for me but it is certainly dry, bitter, cocoa powder. But the palate doesn’t come across as rich and silky as it could be. Certainly doing very well aesthetic wise, but lacking a rich silkiness that would solidify it was a boss RIS. 7/30/2013 9/5/7/4/16=4.1
