I Fucking Love this beer. Insane amounts of chocolate with rasberry tartness to round out the flavors.
I still think the cherry is fantastic but this is defiantly my favorite out of the abductions so far
Defiantly an after dinner dessert beer! Enjoy with good friends

Served in Tulip glass from my brother in law's house

Appearance is dark thick with a hint of purple

Smell is fruity tart with hints of chocolate

Taste is tart upfront with more chocolate as it warms. It is amazing!

Mouthfeel is a little thick but not too thick. No burn what so ever. Just a little carbonation. Just really balanced.

Overall I love this beer! By far the best of the Abduction series. Pipeworks really did this beer perfectly. I love Bramble Rye but thought this was just as good if not better. If you can get it, I'd suggest let it warm up just a little bit from taking it out of the fridge.
