750ml bottle, batch #204, thanks Doug for bringing this one over. Poured into a Surly Darkness goblet today, 2/5/2014.

App- Dark opaque black body, 1 finger tan head that dissipates quickly, leaves some lacing and a nice collar.

Smell- Faint tart cherries and that's it. Not particularly interesting. I don't pick out any cocoa or vanilla despite the label saying it was brewed with these.

Flavour- Disappointing. Tart cherries, on the verge of being sour. But I don't get any of the base beer even as it warms up. No roast malts, no espresso, no chocolate. It's just fairly tart cherries. Disappointing even though I expected the beer to be cherry forward. I at least expected to have some more going on.

Mouthfeel- Medium-thin body, fine carbonation. Might be slightly watery actually. Aftertaste is a faint tart cherry flavour.

Overall- If I want cherries, I'd rather spend the money on Wisconsin Belgian Red. This doesn't taste like a stout at all, and is very cherry forward. Definitely one of Pipeworks' weakest offerings in my opinion. Their DIPA bombers are fantastic, but everything else I've had from them have been at least a bit underwhelming.

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.
