Notes/Commercial Description:
Sometimes you feel like a nut, sometimes you want to drink a dark, rich, delicious coconut and almond flavored beer. (Let's be honest, for us it's both...all the time.) We took our base Abduction and added cacao nibs, vanilla bean, toasted coconut and almond. The result is a deeply complex brew that will linger with you long after you're done drinking it. Delicious now but also a prime candidate for a prolonged rest in your temperature controlled catacomb of choice.

Wasn't a big fan of this one. I did not pick up a lot of the flavors it has to offer. Also, from semi chilled to nearly room temp I got a boozy taste that many other stouts on the level manage to hide much better. I would easily drink it again but not over a lot of the beers I can find on the shelf near me.

Nice black malted pour with a hazy mocha froth you'd love to scoop out with a spoon and eat it.

Aroma upfront is prominent cocoa nibs, which I'm a fan of and eat out of a bag for snacking. Malt balls covered in dark chocolate and a lingering cola. Chocolate covered raisins come to mind. A palatable toastiness of coconut. Vanilla and almond extract.

Taste is rich. Raisin purée and dark bitter cocoa. Can't say I'm picking up on coconut but the toasty component is evident. Cola vanilla ice cream float. Coffee and malta (a spanish drink).

Body is lush, luxurious, slick, and velourish. Heavier texture and sugar residues keep you licking your lips.

The entire experience is so enjoyable. Olfactory nerves are tantalized. Taste buds are comforted with the tasty chocolate treats in life. What I love about this beer is that alcohol is not disturbing it. Today I needed just that. Bang up brew.

Pours a very dark brown with what almost looks like a red hue to it, but could have been the light I'm in. Very thick, looks delicious.

The aroma of roasted malts and light fruity coconut is a real treat!

Perfect amount of roasted malts upfront, soon followed by some creaminess from the coconut, and a little bit o' booze to finish.

Mouthfeel is rich, thick, and freaking delicious!

Overall this one of my favorites thus far from the Abduction lineup!
