3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, courtesy of a kind soul... shared in a location remote of my dining room.
Pours basically black with a small head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma has a nice roasty character all around, itís a little boozy and even sort of floral at times. Itís got a nice orange zest & cocoa thing going on for sure.
The flavor offers plenty of sweet on bitter balance. Itís got some orange zest, peel, & flesh for sure the chocolate element tends towards a dark chocolate so itís nicely bitter. The booze is well controlled for sure.
Iíve not had one of these Abduction beers yet that isnít pretty fun.
