I didn’t very high hopes for Coffee Abduction, so I figured I’d just go ahead and crack it open. That was dumb of me. This is capital-A Amazing.

Tastes eerily simliar to the first few vintages of Darkness: definite coffee nodes, overall pretty vinous,but mostly you’re just floored by the audacity of the dry and aggressive American hop profile.
I drank this right after a Speedway–there was still some Speedway in my ladyfriend’s cup–and it was intense enough that I absolutely could not taste the Speedway after just a sip of this. Yet it never gets cloying or stupidly intense. It’s just a rough, hoppy imperial stout with some slight coffee nodes. Excellently done.
