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.

Scopey (9998) - 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.

crossovert (9957) - 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.

GT2 (9410) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUL 30, 2013
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

DrSilverworm (9083) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2013
22oz bottle, shared by tmoney99. Back of the bottle says "#100". Dark brown color, light comes through around the sides. Medium brown head. Solid scatter of lace. Nice roasty coffee in the nose. Nice long roasty lightly chocolately aftertaste. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Good chewiness. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Kind of a light herbal, earthy hop note, I like that a lot. Great imperial stout. Perfect amount of light black IPA -esque hoppiness.

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99- thanks again, Tom! Batch 100. Pours a dark chocolate brown with a small tan head. Massive chocolate in the aroma, with roasted malts, nuts, and a bit of fresh coffee. Flavor of milk and dark chocolate, caramel, roasted malts, nuts, and coffee. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, rich, chocolaty mouthfeel. So simple and well made.

douglas88 (7582) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Bomber. Batch 41.Pours a pitch black color with a medium creamy brown head. A nice nose of ash, fruity hops. The flavor is initially quite hoppy with pine, some light roast, cocoa, more ash and bitter dark chocolate. Really hoppy for a stout and well made. Great full palate.
