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. phaleslu (10553) - 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. olio (10469) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 29, 2013

Inky black pour with a tan head. Lovely nose of cinnamon tinged coffee and dark bittersweet chocolate with a tinge of nougat. Big dark and smooth flavor with little bits of dark chocolate and coffee, a kiss of dark warm alcohol phenols, and a slightly coffee’d finish.
