AdamJackson (2348) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 1, 2014
dark brown. lots of coffee and vanilla. Taste is okay but very peppery, like duct tape and very bad coffee. seriously, having all 4 abductions side by side, what in the heck, guys? Why are these so bad?

Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2013
In short: A basic big coffee stout. Just ok.
How: Bottle 22oz, post-HF FoFA 2013.
The look: Black body topped by a small tan head.
In long: The strong nose is intense used coffee filter along with some charcoal. In mouth the beer offers a thick heavy body that is carbonated enough. Taste is overcooked caramel, old cup of black coffee, mild vanilla notes. A bit of a boiled vegetables flavor developing from the high roast. A straightforward coffee stout which unfortunately didn’t offer a fun coffee character, too much like used coffee filter instead of nice roasted coffee beans. Decent beer but slightly below average for the style. And on a more linguistic note, I think Abduction is too strong of a word when talking about kidnapping of a young children, I prefer to call it Surprise Adoption.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle... Pitch black ale with a small, creamy, fleeting, off-white head. The nose features acrid, deeply-roasted coffee and gobs of fudge. Full-bodied and ϋber velvety with tickling carbonation. Roasty, bittersweet, mocha flavor. Lengthy, bittersweet, espresso finish. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

angel77 (772) - oviedo, SPAIN - DEC 23, 2013
Botella de 65 cl en el Lupulo. Septiembre de 2013. Alucinante birra con gran sabor a tostados y café y más café, con un cuerpo fuerte y denso. Una gran imperial stout. Imprescindible repetir de nuevo.

Acid303 (406) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - DEC 21, 2013
65cl bottle, served in Duvel cup. Pours pitch black with medium brown creamy head. Complex aroma: roasted malts, caramel, coffee and hints of vanilla and grape. Strong taste: more roasted malts and cooffe than the aroma, very little sweetness. Some hops on the palate. Creamy mouthfeel, good carbonation. Good beer.

9/XII/13 - 1Pt. 6Fl. Oz. bottle @ home - BB: n/a (2013-1133) Thanks to Bobochamp for sharing the bottle!

Clear dark brown to black beer, no head. Aroma: sweet malts, caramel, mocha, coffee grit, burnt caramel, vanilla. MF: soft to no carbon, medium to full body. Taste: pretty sweet, heavy caramel, alcohol, sugary, fudge, dark chocolate. Aftertaste: overripe banana, sweet, caramel, dark chocolate, mocha, some coffee, vanilla, sugary. Not bad, but a bit too sweet for my liking.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Opaque dark brown beer with a decent pale tan head. Palate is slightly viscous and a little soft. Smooth dark malt and dark malt cream well integrated with smooth coffee and a touch of dark fruits. Smooth finish. Good stuff from this very good brewer.
