Pours opaque dark brown in color with 1/4 inch head. Taste is big coffee, roasted malt, and a nice vanilla and cracker backbone. Heavy bodied, roasty, and light carbonation. Doesn't overwhelm with coffee. Very balanced and one of the better Abduction beers I have had.

Served in a goblet fight from the bottle.

Appearance: Thick dark black motor oil color, brown to black body with medium bubbles with a subtle tan head rising maybe one tenth of a finger's length.

Smell: Light warm brown sugar scent with a touch of coffee bean. Really good but really light.

Taste: Sweet molasses and doses of coffee which isn't overly bitter. I thank god it's not like dessert and definitely hits well with appetizing malts. Lightly bitter and complex which is a brew very hard to let go.

Mouth: Medium to full body, sticky but subtle at the same time without the overwhelming power of some imperial stouts.

Overall: Little pricey considering what else you can find but granted you get a lot of quality behind what you pay for. Personally if you see it on a shelf or a bar, grab it...it's an incredible hidden gem that most connoisseurs would appreciate. Beer review 1100 in the books and going to sleep, always in a glass...Salud!

Near black, dark brown head...vanishes quickly. Smell reminds me of my grandmother's cran-raisin walnut fudge brownies. Thick and lush. Moderately high carbonation with decent carbonic bite. Donut dough dusted with sugar, raspberry puree filling. Dark cherries give it a bit of dimension. Aftertaste of coffee, which takes the edge off the sweetness. Vanilla is very floral and even carries a medicinal bitterness. To reiterate, I feel like the coffee is an afterthought. It's predominantly a sweet stout
