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.

Bottle from last fall. My first and only of the abduction beers - at least, the first full bottle Iíve ever had. Went into it with fairly low expectations as a friend didnít 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 shouldíve drank it earlier. Oh well.

CanIHave4Beers (3621) - 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.
