Pours dark black in color with no light making it through and moderately thick. Tan head is a thin film that has great retention

Smell is great. Lots of semi tart ripe red cherry aromas are forward and followed by a chocolate malt and cacao. Slight vanilla aromas one the end. Also a big alcohol aroma.

Taste follows nose and is good. Semi sweet tart cherries come in first along with some roasted chocolate malt. Big alcohol presence and sweet malty flavor are midway before a very faint vanilla flavor finishes.

Mouthfeel is good. Thick body is cut with a moderate small bubble carbonation. Good sticky malty feel.

Awesome they brewed this will vanilla beans also. Pours ruby tinged dark brown and sits midnight black in the glass with a creamy, dark mocha-brown head. The cherry does not pop out intensely in the aroma, but it is definitely there. Big dark chocolate bitterness and some medium roast coffee beans. The vanilla addition yields more of a milk chocolate and lighter roast coffee. The cherry blends very well - a tart and sweet cherry presence cuts through the chocolate and coffee. As it warms it all jells better and surprisingly some citrus hoppiness that come through. The vanilla is not noticeable on its own, but it's influence is felt through each flavor. Alcohol is completely hidden.

Awesome addition to the abduction crew!

Batch 517-520
Dark brown pour with minimal wispy flat cola top.

Aroma of charred oaky vanilla. Scant sourball cherry candy. Dark chocolate.

Bitter charred vanilla on the arrival. Dark chocolate. Sour cherry juice on the finish.

Light effervescence. Medium body. Dark cocoa bitterness in the mouth.

Overall decent enough. Not just Pipeworks but these cherry stouts with little influence are tiring. It says cherry-the guy has a cherry for a brain-give me cherry dammit. Drink it for the ABV and again, a decent enough stout.
