hopscotch (10923) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Bottle... Pitch black ale with a small, creamy, fleeting, off-white head. The nose features acrid, deeply-roasted coffee and gobs of fudge. Full-bodied and ϋber velvety with tickling carbonation. Roasty, bittersweet, mocha flavor. Lengthy, bittersweet, espresso finish. Bottle courtesy of BBB63!

deyholla (10794) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a very dark brown head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma is mainly coffee and espresso with a bit of dark chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor starts with coffee but mellows to allow a nice dark roasted malt note to come out that is complimented by some dark chocolate.

phaleslu (9782) - 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 doesnt 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 doesnt play much in the flavor. Solid treatment.
