Statistics show (source unknown) that 99% of Americans have been abducted by aliens in their lifetime and 1% of Americans are space invaders. Reasons for this aggression, statistics say (source unknown) is due to their intense desire for the smooth, velvet brewed with cherries known as Pipeworks Cherry Truffle Abduction on planet Earth (known to aliens as planet 121302498u2239048 quadrant 102938102938102938 (alien source (statistics say 99% of sources are inaccurate (source unknown(source unknown, source unknown))).

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.
