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.

A pungent bouquet of dried raspberries on the nose. Hints of chocolate and balance out some of the tart fruity raspberries undertones and reminds you that the raspberry infused drink you're about to enjoy is not a framboise.

Pipeworks delivers again; raspberries and rich truffle chocolate are the dominant sensations on the palate, with chocolate overpowering the raspberry as it would in real life. Roasty, slightly nutty, with a bit of tart tangy raspberry toward the end.

Medium-bodied, nice creamy mouthfeel as you would expect from any respectable brewing company, with gentle tongue-tickling carbonation; the bottle gushed slightly at first due to being close to room temp and being shook nine ways from Monday on the plane, and smelled a bit sour-ish coming out of the bottle which made me think "infection!" but turned out it was just the raspberries.

Absolutely loving the "what you see is what you get" concept as usual from Pipeworks; now I'm really curious about their other Abduction series offerings...
