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.

From 08/19/14 notes. 22 oz bottle into a snifter, batch 414-415. Thanks to BeerLawyer85 for sharing this one.

Pours a dark mahogany color with one finger of tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Lots of dark chocolate, some soap, cream, vanilla. Taste has sweeter chocolate than the nose had. Medium body and low carbonation. Easy to drink and doesn't feel like 10.5% ABV.

Overall a very good American stout. Not too much going on but it is well made. Would pick it up again and somewhat frequently if it was easy to get.
