last night while watching tv, pours oil black with a quick tan head. nose of black coffee. big coffee grinds upfront with undulating chocolate sweetness. a quick flash of vanilla on a lingering finish. body is light, feels watery like the hand full of other abductions I’ve ticked.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle shared by alexsdad06- thanks, Brad! Pours a coffee brown color with a small beige head. Aroma of coffee, earth, dark chocolate, leaves, and some roasted malts. Flavor of coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, fudge, and molasses. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, roasty, earthy mouthfeel and low carbonation. Simple and straightforward and seems to hit the right notes. But still, something fell a little flat for me here. It just doesn’t pop like the regular Abduction, which is outstanding.

22 oz bottle shared with the group. Pours a dark cola brown to black with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have nice roasted malt, strong coffee, some chocolate, alcohol is warming but doesn’t play much in the flavor. Solid treatment.

The aroma doesn't fully prepare you for the even smoothness of the flavor and how beautifully it plays out through
