Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: xdtfx on 01-03-2014

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.

22oz bottle from BeerMeDuffMan (many thanks!). Batch 383-385 (I believe bottled early 2014). Served in a Clown Shoes snifter.

Pours dark, near-black brown with a full finger of tan head. The lasting healthy collar deposits some large islands of lace.

Sweet and smooth aromas greet my nostrils as soon as I pop the cap. Cocoa, coconut, caramel, vanilla and some semi sour dark fruits.

I detect some slight oxidation in the taste, as should be expected after about a year. Coconut, toasted nuts, cocoa, roasted grains, dark fruits, mild coffee, vanilla, faint almond and a light dusting of alcohol.

Smooth, creamy body on the fuller side of medium with light but active carbonation. The finish is slightly bitter with a little more oxidation, toasted nuts, vague coconut and hints of vanilla.

Toasty Nut Abduction is a tasty spin on the base. I'm relatively certain that my experience is just a shadow of how this was a year ago when it was fresh but it's better to taste this late than not at all.
