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.

22 oz bomber. The pour is a medium black with a thin ring of off white head and no lace to be found. I'm excited for this one. The aroma is typically imperial stout. There is a lot of roasty malt and good dark chocolate to go with a strong licorice. The dark fruits pop through on the back end, but it's definitely a good impy stout. The flavor is really solid. Lots of bitter roasted chocolate malt up front. There is a good dark fruit and licorice on the back end. Pretty basic, but the flavors are well defined. The mouth feel is thin. There is a lack of carbonation which doesn't help it cling to the mouth. The aftertaste vanishes pretty quickly as well, leaving a lightly bitter roast behind. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
