last night while watching tv, pours oil black with a quick tan head. nose of black coffee. big coffee grinds upfront with undulating chocolate sweetness. a quick flash of vanilla on a lingering finish. body is light, feels watery like the hand full of other abductions I’ve ticked. phaleslu (10267) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared by alexsdad06- thanks, Brad! Pours a coffee brown color with a small beige head. Aroma of coffee, earth, dark chocolate, leaves, and some roasted malts. Flavor of coffee, roasted malts, chocolate, fudge, and molasses. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, roasty, earthy mouthfeel and low carbonation. Simple and straightforward and seems to hit the right notes. But still, something fell a little flat for me here. It just doesn’t pop like the regular Abduction, which is outstanding.

22 oz bottle shared with the group. Pours a dark cola brown to black with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have nice roasted malt, strong coffee, some chocolate, alcohol is warming but doesn’t play much in the flavor. Solid treatment. b3shine (8874) - Indiana, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Bomber to snifter (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; a dark cola with thin beige lacing. Smells solid; coffee, vanilla, chocolate, and dark malt. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. Good beer.

Bomber. Batch 66. About a yr. old. Cocoa dominates the nose. Deep black with a thin tan head. Rich flavors of dark fruit and cocoa with a zing of black coffee and bitter hops at the end. Medium to thick body. A great beer. NHhophead (3) - Rollinsford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 28, 2013 does not count
Bottle to a snifter. Pours black with a thin Carmel head the dissipates quickly. Smells of coffee, malts and slight chocolate. Taste is the same nice hints of coffee, malts, chocolate leaves a sweet aftertaste. Overall a great beer! chris2nite (3) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - NOV 28, 2013 does not count
The aroma doesn't fully prepare you for the even smoothness of the flavor and how beautifully it plays out through

Bottle. Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma of coffee and alcohol. Taste is of coffee, roasted malt, chocolate, licorice and a hint of vanilla. Long aftertaste of coffee and vanilla. Full body and soft carbonation. Coffee taste is quite balanced and overall this beer is pretty good.
