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.

bigda83 (655) - Jamestown, New York, USA - FEB 12, 2016
Batch 635/636. Poured a dark brown, some haze look to it, bubbly tan head. Aroma of sweet malts, chocolate, black licorice, and clove hints. Flavor followed the nose and blended nice. Maybe a tad sweet, but overall very nice. Full body, thick texture, average carbonation, and some slight booze on the finish.

bytemesis (5580) - 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
