Poured into 12 oz Pipeworks NvU snifter. Dark, very light reddish head on edges of glass. Get the usual chocolate stout notes I always get from the Abduction series. Fruit also present on nose and taste, light mouthfeel and aftertaste. Another good experiment with their stouts.

Well brewed stout in terms of look and feel. Aroma is full of raspberry. Taste is overly sweet and raspberry with a chocolate finish. Too sweet for me but if you like pdub stouts and rasberry, you should give a try
