Another solid Pipeworks beer. Light cherry flavors blended well with the abduction stout base. I liked it. I am glad that I have more...

Pipeworks Brewing Cherry Truffle Abduction.

Poured from a bomber into my trusty CBS snifter. Served at cellar temp. That means whatever the temperature is inside of the closet in my basement.

A) Dark brown... My four year old says it's black. A nice big dark tan head. The head settled to a thin dusting. This has some legs.

S) The cherry is pretty subdued. There is a little tartness on the nose. Faint chocolate and vanilla.

T) Please refer to the aroma. The alcohol is pretty well hidden, given an 11% ABV. There's a little heat.

M) A bit thin for my liking. Finishes up dry with some warmth.

O) A decent sipper, and it took the edge off after a long work week. Although I have to say this has been my least favorite of the Abduction series.
