4.32/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

A - pours dark with little head

S - raspberries, tart, sweet, roasty, chocolate, slight hop presence.

T - smooth, chocolate cake with raspberry filling, nice sour/tart taste mixed with velvety chocolate, roasted malt, a bit of coffee

M - thin. Thinner than expected as this beer envokes thoughts of Lindley Park and Cherry Rye so I guess I was expecting a thicker, fuller body and mouthfeel. But thats not a bad thing, it stays true to Coffee Break and regular Abduction.

O - this is a very good beer. As mentioned it reminds me of Cherry Rye or Lindly Park; it has a nice fruity tartness and a nice chocolately stout. I really like the truffle aspect as it lends a slightly different creamy chocolatiness than just roasted malts alone.

4.12/5  rDev -1.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a Pipeworks snifter.

A- pours black with a 2" mocha head. Big blotches and trails of lacing.

S- chocolate, coffee, pine and big raspberry juice notes.

T- roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, sweet raspberries, and bitter pine finish.

M- medium body and carbonation. Lighter feel, drinks very easy.

O- nice first batch of this. Love the raspberry flavor and aromas. Thicker mouthfeel would make this a amazing beer.
