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.

Tmoney99 (13239) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2013
Bottle. Poured black color with a moderate creamy light brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Medium to heavy toasted sweet caramel malt, coffee with a small alcohol aroma. Full body with a creamy smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet coffee flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer.

Scopey (11951) - 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.

Dogbrick (11164) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Sample from batch #100 at Kurtkeller 004: Pipeworks-tastic 01 on 01/18/2014. Black pour with a medium khaki head that diminishes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. Full-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of chocolate malt, coffee and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a cocoa and malt aftertaste. Solid Stout overall.

crossovert (10986) - Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2012 Dark black pour with a fizzy head that quickly dissipates. It smells nice but a bit weak. It is cocoa-y with some coffee. Dark fruits round it out. The first sip brings to mind grape cough syrup which is weird. The flavor continues to be fruity and boozy. It has some espresso too but mostly a sugary fruitiness. I don’t know if I am a huge fan of it. Had another bottle of the same batch (same store even) and liked it alot more. Not sure if my palate was fucked up or not.

daknole (10836) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 2, 2014
Dark brown pour, brown head. Quite roasty, a hint of a metallic flavor, but I still get a lot of nice chocolate notes, licorice, light smoke notes.
