Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of cough syrup and cherry syrup with light roasted notes is mildly enjoyable. Taste is a mix of cough syrup with cherry flavored syrup, quite a bit of residual sugar notes with some lactose. Body is full with creamy texture and good carbonation. Not a big fan of the cherry flavour in this beer.

The cherry is very subtle. There is more of a coffee undercurrent than a cherry taste. The base stout is quite solid. It is on a par with the others in the Abduction series

Appearance - The beer was black with a modest tan head crowning the glass.

Smell - The nose is mostly mild cherry.

Taste - Sour cherry skin comes to the front with milky chocolate acting as the backbone. There is a little more cherry sweetness in the back, but I feel like I missed out on the cherries. The malts make a stand in the aftertaste, leaving little home of a cherry comeback.

Mouthfeel - The carbonation level of on target for the style and allows the taste to linger.

Overall - I think is one of the more disappointing abductions. I wanted more cherry.

Nice cherry balance with the rest of the chocolate flavors.
