You might be wondering if you have ever in your life been abducted by space aliens. 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))).

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a snifter.

Pours dark brown with a 2 finger dark tan head. Lots of small bubbles speckle the glass.

Sweet chocolate, vanilla, light cherries, some roast.

Bitter chocolate, vanilla, light tart cherry, light coffee and roasted malts. Something about the roast/coffee and tart cherries leaves me with a slight metallic, rust flavor.

Another good abduction beer, but was hoping for much more. Like I said the cherries leave a weird metallic flavor for me. Was hoping for more of a clean cut cherry flavor with chocolate. (553 characters)

Awesome they brewed this will vanilla beans also. Pours ruby tinged dark brown and sits midnight black in the glass with a creamy, dark mocha-brown head. The cherry does not pop out intensely in the aroma, but it is definitely there. Big dark chocolate bitterness and some medium roast coffee beans. The vanilla addition yields more of a milk chocolate and lighter roast coffee. The cherry blends very well - a tart and sweet cherry presence cuts through the chocolate and coffee. As it warms it all jells better and surprisingly some citrus hoppiness that come through. The vanilla is not noticeable on its own, but it's influence is felt through each flavor. Alcohol is completely hidden.

Awesome addition to the abduction crew! (731 characters)
