Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Treebs on 10-18-2012

This was the very first Abduction - the first time the extraterrestrials got a taste of a rich, roasty, chocolatey Imperial Stout with subtle bittering hops. This specific batch is an overhaul of the original recipe. We've upped the roasty character, and brewed it bigger, and richer with a slight kiss of orange peel at the end of the boil. Be Warned: the little green men will be quick to beam this off of shelves to enjoy on their home planet.

Smells chocolatey w/some coffee. Taste is coffee forward w/some chocolate, vanilla, bitterness on tongue. Not bad. Would be even better with more chocolate and/or vanilla, so I added vanilla! Even better!
