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.

madvike (2660) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Pours opaque mahogany, with no head. Taste is weird, almost soured dark malt, a bit of ash, and a layer of brown sugar sweetness. Taste is ashy, gross coffee grounds, sweet malt, and a long, dirty finish. Thin and very low carbonation.

Has some roasty and some pine hop scents. Taste is similar, but with a rather sweet taste that I wish was not there, it is decent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle shared by khoffman43! Dark black pour, nice ring of thick dark carbonation and an aroma of chocolate roast and coffee. Flavor is really nice chocolate malt, strong bitter hops and hints of clove and nuts. Really nice, becoming a big fan of these guys after having a few of their beers.
