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.

Pours a dark brown and sits black as night in the glass. Has a very thick two finger head of light khaki foam that leave sticky and thick lacking.

Chocolate, nuts, roast, and some piney/earthy hops.

Tons of chocolate malt and roast flavor, subtle citrus note, some vanilla, and some light coffee flavor as well.

Heavy-bodied, medium carbonation, sweet, roasty, chewy.

Overall, this pours beautifully and includes a smooth and semi-chewy body, but aroma and flavor were lacking something.
