Was expecting a bit more orange in this but was plesently surprised with what they did here. The orange is not overpowering and it makes for one hell of a delicious imp stout. Lots of chocolate in the nose and taste and the orange is there as a perfect accompaniment. Well done pipeworks.

CanIHave4Beers (3533) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - FEB 9, 2015
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.

pours a thin thickness with dark color and a little head that quickly evaporates. You get the orange taste and a little coffee, though not a ton. overall good but nothing special
