4.36/5  rDev +10.9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours dark black in color with no light making it through and moderately thick. Tan head is a thin film that has great retention

Smell is great. Lots of semi tart ripe red cherry aromas are forward and followed by a chocolate malt and cacao. Slight vanilla aromas one the end. Also a big alcohol aroma.

Taste follows nose and is good. Semi sweet tart cherries come in first along with some roasted chocolate malt. Big alcohol presence and sweet malty flavor are midway before a very faint vanilla flavor finishes.

Mouthfeel is good. Thick body is cut with a moderate small bubble carbonation. Good sticky malty feel.

3.15/5  rDev -19.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body. Deep black. Nice khaki head. Thick collar.

Smell - Cherry and chocolate. Kinda milk chocolatey. Not very dynamic.

Taste - Much more chocolate, but the cherry cuts into the richness of it. Makes it taste a bit artificial. Again, not all that interesting.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Not as tasty as other Abduction variants. Cherry really doesn't work.
