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.

Pailhead (6322) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists chocolate, citrus/grapefruit, pine, and light roasted coffee. It pours a dark brown with no transparency. It has a two finger tan head with excellent retention. There’s some nice ringed lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of sweet/sugary chocolate. There is some sweet citrus and fruitiness in the middle. The finish has moderate grapefruit, pine, molasses, and some burnt notes.
