UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Bottle: Basically black with only a light shimmer of deep brown at the top, mild dark beige head that drops to a shabby collar and skin. Aroma is creamy, brew house coffee, sweet cream, orange zest, hint of roast, and some bittersweet chocolate. Coffee is surprisingly the strongest aroma. Taste is like a cool, iced coffee drink you’d get at Starbucks... Sweet creamy coffee with some zesty orange that’s light enough to not be intrusive with mocha drizzle. Finish of cocoa beans and light roast, just a touch of finishing sweetness. Medium mouth feel, medium carbonation. Not a huge orange presence, but enough to make an impact... Very nice brew.

Acid303 (668) - Barcelona, CATALONIA, - MAY 7, 2016
65cl bottle, served in Duvel glass. Pours black with small beige head. Aroma is dark chocolate, licorice, caramel and hints of red grape. The flavour is not that weird: roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla and a slight touch of orange. Sweet aftertaste, not cloying. Full body, soft carbonation. To be honest...it’s a pretty average beer compared to other Imperial Stouts.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 31, 2015
Bomber. Poured near black with a short-lived dark brown head. The aroma picked up chocolate and biscuity malts with accents of orange cream.. some vanilla too. The flavor found cocoa, vanilla, and Cadbury Cream Eggs at the core with a little odd sourness around.. muddled, a touch sour, and funky on the weird finish. Medium-plus bodied and very sweet with too much odd contrasting stuff.. seemed a little off.

bytemesis (6599) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle thanks to Tooch4321. Pours pretty opaque black, small tan head, some lacing. Aroma is a lot like those orange filled easter candies actually. Lots of cocoa, hints of anise, orange zest. Flavor is medium sweet, light plus bitter, a bit sickly in a difficult to describe way. Hints of ashtray. Medium body.

Ernesto987 (5567) - Arizona, USA - OCT 7, 2015
subpar stout, thin, sharp, flat and with low drinkability, not interesting at all, i think the orange ruined it. Just added a flat thin boozyness. PASS.

Bottle from last fall. My first and only of the abduction beers - at least, the first full bottle I’ve ever had. Went into it with fairly low expectations as a friend didn’t like it so much but was presently surprised. A nice mellow imperial stout, sweet, chocolate, little hint of orange but very minimal. Wonder if it was more orange-heavy earlier on and I should’ve drank it earlier. Oh well.

nimbleprop (7373) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 6, 2015
22oz bottle pours a murky black with a ring of off white head. Nose had a lot of orange and molasses, malt, toast. Flavor is better, cakey, chocolte, vanilla, caramel, molasses, orange, brown sugar. Full, sticky finish.
