BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Pipeworks Brewing Company
Illinois, United States
pdubs.net

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Appearance - The beer was black with a modest tan head crowning the glass.

Smell - The nose is pretty straight forward roasty malts.

Taste - At the front was rich smooth chocolate syrup. This was followed up by bitter coffee and burnt malts. The beer ran a little bitter at the end, but there is something to be appreciated in abduction without all of the fruits and nuts.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation level of on target for the style and allows the taste to linger. The overall profile was quite smooth.

Overall - I am surprised that I like OG Abduction more than some the variants.

Overall a very good stout. No rough edges, a little too sweet, nothing overly exciting. Cellared approximately 2 years.
