UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Sample from a bottle at DLD 2013. Black body. Minimal khaki head. Couple dots of lace. Smooth, chewier texture. Nice big coffee aroma. Moderate roast. Good big bitterness. Super stuff. 8/4/8/4/17

Re-rate, 12/5/13: 22oz bottle, shared by a local alexsdad06. Batch 248-252. Black color. Thin light brown head. Some loose bits of lace. Smooth, chewy lighter carbonation. Bigger body. Great dark bitter chocolate, and bigger coffee. Truffle chocolate fudge. Awesome big bitter taste, light sweet. Fantastic coffee imperial stout, though a little sweet in the finish. Would prefer more bitter. Light hint of metallic. Good coffee vanilla stout.

phaleslu (9255) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2013
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.

laiti (7981) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013
65 cl bottle @ home, Batch #74?, bottled 14.01.2013
Aroma has mocha coffee, some jalopeno‐like vegetables, chocolate and hints of licorice. Flavour has mocha, ashy notes, soy sauce and salty licorice. Rather smooth and silky palate. Too salty but definitely not bad anyway.

b3shine (7965) - Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Bomber to snifter (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a dark cola with thin beige lacing. Smells solid; coffee, vanilla, chocolate, and dark malt. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer.
