4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted on 6/23/14 from a capped 22oz bomber bottle sent to me in a trade. Pours a very thick, nearly black, dark brown with a thick, smooth brown head that slowly recedes to a thick collar of lace. The nose is almost exactly like a mocha with a touch of vanilla, plenty of dark chocolate, deep, dark espresso, and plenty of roast with a hint of vanilla. The flavor is the same sweet-ish vanilla tinged mocha with tons of milky dark chocolate and bitter, deep espresso. The body is super full, one of the creamiest beers I have ever had, with average, but smooth carbonation, and a very long touch of vanilla, mocha finish.

22 ounce bottle shared thanks to my buddy Josh. Pours a thicker black with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma is rich coffee roast and earth. The taste is coffee roast and bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.

Black pour nice tan head with light sticky lacing .... Aroma of coffee and not as sweet as regular abduction which is a bonus, roasted malts and caramel malts with some dark fruits .... Taste is of bitter roasted coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and some sweet lactose .... Has a bitter bite to it .... Mouthfeel is slick and oily with a lingering roasted coffee finish ... Nice fresh roasted coffee qualities, abv hidden well and has a softness to it

Dark roasted coffee on the nose--not much else. Black with cinnamon-colored head. Tastes of freshly brewed coffee--hey, who’d have guessed? The coffee flavor itself is more chocolatey (again, obviously) than berry/fruity like, but it is very bitter. Finishes harsh and bitter, with lingering aftertaste of...coffee.

650 mL bottle. Love their names and labels. Not much head. Has coffee, vanilla, and roast in the nose, but it doesn’t smell huge. The flavour is pretty well balanced up front, with coffee and vanilla, and caramel sweetness balancing the mild roast and booze. Needs a little more roast, actually. Finishes quickly. None of the flavours overwhelm the others. Nice, but not great.
