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.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2014 Bottle... This beer rocks!... Pitch-black pour with a small, creamy, taupe head. Good retention. The aroma is highlighted by a plush marriage of gooey fudge and a double chocolate brownie. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and kicked-back carbonation. The flavor presents semi-sweet dark chocolate and espresso with a mild, savory nuance of molasses. Roasty, bittersweet, mocha finish. BBB63 comes through with the world class goods!

GT (9982) - 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 (9671) - 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.
