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. waxed bomber served in a Deschutes snifter. Batch #41 A: Pours an opaque black color with a two finger tan head forming on the pour. It has great retention throughout the whole glass. It recedes very slowly down to heft cap that leaves sticky and soapy lace down the glass. S: Dark chocolate, some sweet booze and fruity yeast with a nice roasted malt presence as well. Another layer of coffee bean is present giving it another layer. T: Sweet boozy notes with a touch of fruity yeast and some milk chocolate. Great roasted coffee bean with a light toffee malt presence. M: Medium + bodied with a slick and oily mouthfeel. Medium to low carb really gives it that nice stout feel with a touch of dryness on the finish. O: The booze sweet in nature with some slightly fruity yeast, but there is enough complimentary roasted flavors along with an unsweetened chocolate to balance it out. I’d love to see this with a year or two on it and I’m glad I’ve got some for the cellar. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-18-2012
