COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Abduction in the dead of night, an eerie silence consumes the blackened sky. In an instant, BOOM, a single beam engulfs you. Panic stricken, you flee in no particular direction. It’s of little use, as you’re lifed effortlessly from the safety and comfort of the earth intoa darkness unknown. Resistance is futile. They have you now. Abduction has you now.

alexsdad06 (10596) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99. Pours a very dark brown to black in color with a medium sized khaki head. The aroma and flavor have big roasted malt, coffee, and cocoa powder, more dark chocolate, hints of caramel with some char and earthy bitterness at the finish. More powdery than silky smooth, but very tasty.

phaleslu (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared by Tmoney99- thanks again, Tom! Batch 100. Pours a dark chocolate brown with a small tan head. Massive chocolate in the aroma, with roasted malts, nuts, and a bit of fresh coffee. Flavor of milk and dark chocolate, caramel, roasted malts, nuts, and coffee. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, rich, chocolaty mouthfeel. So simple and well made.

GT (10001) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 30, 2013
651mL red wax thanks to a trade. Rating #6100! Pours clear deep brown looking opaque black in the glass. Thick, rocky, sheen coffee foam. Big retention and big lace. Rich cinnamon graham cracker nose with dusty Mexican chocolate, coffee, star anise, licorice. Taste though is just a tad dusty for me but it is certainly dry, bitter, cocoa powder. But the palate doesn’t come across as rich and silky as it could be. Certainly doing very well aesthetic wise, but lacking a rich silkiness that would solidify it was a boss RIS. 7/30/2013 9/5/7/4/16=4.1

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2013
22oz bottle, shared by tmoney99. Back of the bottle says "#100". Dark brown color, light comes through around the sides. Medium brown head. Solid scatter of lace. Nice roasty coffee in the nose. Nice long roasty lightly chocolately aftertaste. Bigger body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Good chewiness. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Kind of a light herbal, earthy hop note, I like that a lot. Great imperial stout. Perfect amount of light black IPA -esque hoppiness.

douglas88 (9516) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 8, 2013
Bomber. Batch 41.Pours a pitch black color with a medium creamy brown head. A nice nose of ash, fruity hops. The flavor is initially quite hoppy with pine, some light roast, cocoa, more ash and bitter dark chocolate. Really hoppy for a stout and well made. Great full palate.

b3shine (9027) - Indiana, USA - APR 20, 2013
Bomber to snifter (thanks tmoney99). Looks good; a semi-opaque cola with thin off-white lacing. Smells solid; dark malt, chocolate, and roast. Tastes like it smells, only better, with a nice, creamy mouthfeel. Good stuff!

3.7
drowland (8895) - Georgia, USA - DEC 24, 2012
12/24/12. Bomber courtesy cbfobes! Black pour with a really nice tan head that sticks forever and coats the glass with lacing. Toasty cocoa powder and lots of roast in the aroma with burnt caramel and a touch of acidity. Huge dry roasted malt kick right away but then with a big sweet and lightly sour/acidic kick. Lingering chocolate and sweet coffee.

bytemesis (8823) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle, Batch #44, 2012. Oops :(. Pours opaque black with a small brown creamy head that dissipates leaving solid lacing. So far, so good. Aroma is really chocolatey, like REALLY chocolate, with heavy roasted malts and a hint of anise. Some molasses on the back end as well. Flavor has all of the above, light plus sweet and medium bitter, rich and cocoa filled, coffee grounds, a hint of sharpmess about it. Lingering roasty bitterness. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. This guy held up well, methinks

4.1
Plovmand (8534) - Grindsted, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2013
