22oz bottle from Binny’s Lincoln Park. Batch #66. Pours a black body with a finger-width, dense and creamy, brown head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is pretty awesome. Lots of espresso and fresh coffee, but plenty of the base to keep things balanced. Rich chocolates, resiny and citrusy pine hops, roasts, and a bit of a vanilla cream showing up. Flavor is big and bold with lots of espresso, citrusy pine hops, rich milky and dark chocolates, roasts, and some more vanilla cream. Finishes moderately bitter with lots of citrus pines, plenty of coffee, a good amount of roasts, and lots of plump chocolates. Lengthy aftertaste following a full, very smooth body and a creamy, medium-light carbonation. Overall, this was pretty damn good and by far my favorite from these guys yet. Big and rich with plenty of citrusy hops and roasts from the original, but lots of coffee that compliments the base extremely well while never overpowering. Drink this one fresh to get the most out of it. Awesome beer. thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 22, 2013
This bottled brew from a rating party poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark brown colored body and a fair lacing. . The mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild roasted malt aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of mildly vinous roasted malt coffee brown malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again. msante79 (2244) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bomber from Binny’s Des Plaines. Finally bit the bullet and picked this one up and glad I did. Pours near black with dark tan head. Aromas of sweet espresso, dark chocolate, and deeply roasted malts. Flavors of sweet coffee, chocolate, nicely roasted malts, and finishes with nice hop bitterness. This beats the shit out of regular abduction. Super pumped for the raspberry edition. Nicely done boys. Frink138 (2) - Illinois, USA - MAR 13, 2013 does not count
Terrific all around. The kind of beer you look froward to all day and gain satisfaction from as you pour it thick and black into your glass. Wonderful aroma with a taste to match. Everything I want in a coffee stout. rxeight (3248) - Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2013
Batch 66, just opened on 4/20. Black pour slight head. Strong iced coffee taste and aroma touch of maltiness. Thickeer than your average imperial by a touch. Coffee still fresh despite 4-5 month old bottle. This was really good and much better than the standard abduction.

Pours pitch black with a brown head and strong aroma of coffee and espresso. Taste is strong as well, lots of heavy coffee and espresso with chocolate and roasted malt and a long, warming finish. Excellent brew with a lot of coffee flavor. ICEatALAMO (1353) - Troy, Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle. The pour is dark with a very light brown head that fades quickly. The aroma is coffee in your face, with some malt that comes through. The taste is very nice. Thicker than I was expecting, The coffee is not overpowering, a little boozy. Very nice beer. ansalon (4122) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - OCT 18, 2013
Pours black as night with a small tan head. Swirling the viscous liquid around leaves some oily lacerations in the glass. Aroma is dominated by vanilla and coffee, with some hazelnut, chocolate, honey, dried dark fruit. Mouthfeel is quite thick and creamy. Taste is coffee, vanilla, honey, hazelnut, red currants, brown sugar. Aftertaste is a very nice blend of coffee and vanilla that lingers quite a while. Stellar.
