Pours opaque, black in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is big chocolate--BOSCO and baker's chocolate with a little bit of dark cherry and vanilla...slight medicine taste. Roasty, heavy bodied with low carbonation...Was expecting a lot more cherry taste. Not bad as a straight stout, but decent...Have several other beers from Pipeworks I prefer.

This one is definitely underrated! The flavor is quite complex in which each on brings something to the table. Cocoa, vanilla and Cherry are all appreciated addition to a very nice coffee and imperial stout. A more medium mouthfeel.

Batch #517-520 from 2014-09-21, opened 2017-01-18.

Looks like a great stout. Jet black, totally opaque, not overly carbonated, and some nice lacing.

It has a distinct cherry-cola sort of scent. The Pipeworks Abduction stouts tend to have a strong component of bitterness and a bit of smokiness from the base stout. Maybe it's the age, but this one has a cherry-forward scent with a bit of chocolate and malted grains underneath.

The flavor is pretty similar, with a subtle chocolate-covered-cherry flavor on top of a mellow base of roasted malt.

It also has a nice, somewhat oily feel.

Overall, it's pretty nice, and I think it has aged surprisingly well.
