Not simply relying on the roasted character of common stout to carry its flavor, a heaping helping of coffee and vanilla is injected into the Abduction Imperial Stout for even greater depth, complexity and a special latte type of charm.
Its incredibly dark brown pour is somewhat intimidating in its hazy depth. But once its sultry aromas captivate the nose, the scent of dark chocolate, espresso and burnt sweetness make the first taste alluring and inviting. Coaxed with bold mocha latte flavor, its vanilla cream and singed caramels further reinforce its decadence.
As the creamy roast wraps around the tongue, a milkshake taste ensues- woven together with bittersweet chocolate, walnut, campfire and an earthen chicory root thread. Its creamy texture is like silk against the tongue and is only balanced by its own coffee-type bitterness.
Its warm and gently rolling finish is somewhat like Kahlua as its high roast flavor and dryness continues to be held in check by enduring vanilla and malt structure. Its an effortless taste, however its viscosity lends itself to after dinner sipping sessions rather than high rate of consumption.

A - Jet black body with minimally visible carbonation. The lack of a head is my only gripe with this brew. I poured pretty vigorously and still barely anything.
N - Magnificent. Vanilla, Chocolate, Roasted Coffee.
M - Light, but with creamy deliciousness.
T - Up front you have sweet roasty coffee followed by vanilla and cocoa hints with a smoother than smooth finish.
O - The best stout I have had to date. Took Stones IRS's place. Again I wish the appearance was a little more pleasing but hey with the nose and taste being so outstanding I can deal with it.
