These abduction beers are good overall, though seem to be lacking a bit in mouthfeel and don't have some of the roast character I like to see in a stout. This one may be my favorite, the raspberry is nice.

Definitely my favorite of the pipework abduction collection that I have had so far. Very well balance stout and taste like a chocolate covered raspberries melded into a robust stout.
