Pours black. Tasted more like a sweet stout with some coffee apparent, but wasn’t as dry or roasty as I’d prefer. A bit sweet for my liking but others liked it better than I did.

Bottle shared by Rob and Lisa, thanks for the opportunity.
Huge coffee and brown sugary roasted grain goodness. The sweetness compliments the coffee flavor very nicely. Great brew!

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared by JBPortland ! Pours a deep umber color with a finger of khaki foam. The nose ebbs and flows with sweet chocolate sauce, creamy coffee and boozy abrasiveness. Flavors roll along with layers of chocolate sauce, green coffee, vanilla creme... but there is something a touch artificial about it that Im not completely digging.

@ basunen: lite diskret doft av kaffesump men vilken härlig smak av stark kaffe och vanilj. Len och lång eftersmak. Sofistikerat.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Not much coffee in the nose compared to the regular abduction. Flavor is similar and very much like the regular but without the harshness and tartness. I actually prefer this to the regular hut there is not much coffee. Overall a solid stout but would buy guess they added coffee to it if you didn’t tell me. Batch 112
