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. Pretty nice Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2013
22 oz. bottle served in a Pipeworks Snifter. Batch # 66
A: Pours a jet black color with a tan head forming on the pour. It recedes a quickly to a thin ring. Sheets of lace are left behind.
S: The usual Abduction flavors come through with a great blast of coffee. Espresso, milk chocolate, roasted malts and light dark fruit presence as well.
T: The coffee comes through much heavier and richer in the taste. Deep waves of coffee beans, sweet espresso, and vanilla beans. The taste slowly subsides to some dark fruit, fruity yeast and some roasted malts. The finish is sweet with a hint of vanilla as well.
M: Drinks wonderfully. Heavier bodied with a medium-low carbonation level. A great mix of roasty and sweet on the finish. Drinks very smooth.
O: I thoroughly enjoyed this one. Better than the regular Abduction for sure. I like how the coffee flavors complimented the regular base instead of overpowering it. Definitely a winner that I hope gets put out again.
