Imperial_Scout (363) - Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Poured from 22oz bottle into 12oz snifter. Black with thin tan head and stong coffee aroma. Tastes of burnt, floral coffee, malts and a bit of chocolate. Thinner than what Im used to for the style.

ClubGonzo (3948) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours a pitch black body with a small beige head. Aroma is coffee, dark berries, chocolate, hints of dark malts and charcoal. Taste is coffee, vanilla, hints of resin and dark sugars. Medium body and carbonation. OK, but lacks the little extra to be great.

maneliquor (3009) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle with a big thanks to Ken. Pours dark brown with a small off white head which quickly disappears. Nose is big and bitter espresso, vanilla essence and pepper and spice. Taste is very espresso like, moderate dates, big tobacco, rich and burnt brown sugar sweetness. Very ashy. Balanced ok for a big coffee beer. Not bad

Homer321 (1809) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2014
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

tmoreau (2319) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2014
Shared bomber, poured to snifters, and displayed a darkest brown color, with a modest layer of tan head foam, and light dots & dashes of lacing. The nose was subtle, but noticeable enough notes of roasted malt, mocha, and vanilla. Medium bodied, with low carbonation, low hop bitterness, hidden alcohol, and pleasant sweetness into the finish. Not wowed, but decently drinkable.

cpetrone84 (1334) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2014
pour is cola colored with caramel colored head. Nose is heavy coffee roast, light vanilla and a strange mix of olive and chocolate that doesn’t go well together. Taste is a little better. More balanced, stronger chocolate fudge note with balanced coffee and hint of vanilla. Medium body and gentle carbonation with a linger coffee roast.

Lukaduke (2062) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 6, 2014
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.

Solid coffee stout. Nice bitterness from the coffee and smooth on the palate. I liked it.

Glouglouburp (5956) - 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.
