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.

Bottle opened on 2.20.14
Batch # 204/5

A - Pours a dark brown with ruby highlights. A smaller dark tan head forms, but fades pretty quickly.

S - Chocolate covered cherries is all I can think of.

T - Swwet and bitter cherry, dark chocolate.

D - Decent carbonation with a medium body. Bitter finish.

O - Cherry is there, just not that pleasant.
