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. Its of little use, as youre 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. Id love to see this with a year or two on it and Im glad Ive got some for the cellar. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 10-18-2012

@ Stordirren 15-11-17: Lite mjlk och choklad i doften. Smaken r trevlig bitter med choklad och kaffe. Ingen sensation men fyllig och stabil stout.

bytemesis (5195) - 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

Big bottle with commonmac and rosskyle. Black with nearly tan head. Sweet aroma. Sweet and syrupy taste. licorice, very light roasted malt. Very pleasant finish. Sweet creamy and tasty. Alcohol is there too. Definitely abducted my taste buds for a little bit.

commonmac (762) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Bottle shared by rosskyle acquired in Rockford, IL. Black with tan head. Aroma is coffee and roasted malts with chocolate coming along for the ride. Taste feels relatively straightforward for an imperial stout with a creamy mouthfeel that is appreciated. Chocolate bitterness plays well with sweet vanilla and even caramel. Pleasant finish with some bitter lingering notes and perhaps dark fruits. Pretty decent effort.
