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.

Pours sultry brown with cocoa and bitter nose. Thick and delightful on the tongue with complex smooth and sweet mouthfeel moving to bittersweet chocolate, raisin, brown bread. Finishes with alcohol burn and slight bourbon. Fantastic.

Bottle shared during the RBESG 2014 London Grand Tasting - Moncada Brewery. Pours dark brown with a creamy, tan head. Sugary, with lots of dark malts, rich bread. Medium to full bodied with average carbonation. Finishes sweet with basic dark malt character, some toasted chocolate. OK stuff.

jbruner (2298) - Athens, Georgia, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Bottle shared at Proof happy hour! Pours a deep black with fluffy tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is big on the roast, coffee and dark malts. Taste follows with hints of dark chocolate on top of the coffee. Slick and viscous, mild carbonation, a bit of boozy kick on the back end, but nice imperial stout.

Scopey (6726) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
Bottle thanks to Kenny at RBESG 2014 Grand Tasting. It pours deep brown/near black with small tan head. The nose is rich chocolate, roasty, rocky road, vanilla and light coffee. The taste is bitter, roasty, big acidity, coffee, alcohol, rocky road and filthy chocolate cake with a rich finish. Full body and fine carbonation. Rich and decadent. Not the classiest beverage, but rather nice anyhow.
