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 (5837) - 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.

bytemesis (4969) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle, Batch #44, 2012. Oops :(. Pours opaque black with a small brown creamy head that dissipates leaving solid lacing. So far, so good. Aroma is really chocolatey, like REALLY chocolate, with heavy roasted malts and a hint of anise. Some molasses on the back end as well. Flavor has all of the above, light plus sweet and medium bitter, rich and cocoa filled, coffee grounds, a hint of sharpmess about it. Lingering roasty bitterness. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. This guy held up well, methinks
