Bottle: Very dark pour, black center with a slight hint of brown at the edges; nice, foamy, light-mocha head on tap, long-lasting & chunky leaving good lacing behind. Aroma has notes of musty cherry jam & cherry marmalade with a chocolate candy bar underbody & hints of brown sugar rounding things out. Taste is a mixture of semi-sweet cherry jam & milky, melted chocolate. Some light roasted malt notes on the edges with hints of brown sugar, nuts, & dry cocoa dust. The cherry stays sweet & never gets medicinal, which is good. I enjoyed this one quite a bit, though it may be my personal least favorite of the Abduction series (so far).

wchesser (1166) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 17, 2014
Bottle from rxeight. Thanks! Dark brown, nose of dark malt and bit of sour cherry flesh. Pretty standard stout base with cherry, some sweetness from vanilla, but largely drier and thinner than I expected.

Bacterial (1555) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 12, 2014
Bottle shared at LeviLOL tasting - thanks! Light black pour with just a little tan head. Nose is malty with just a hint of cherry. A bit more cherry in the taste, still pretty thin.

Bottle - thanks Brandon! Super dark pour with a small head. Smooth medium density stout with a hint of cherry. It’s beauty is in its subtlety.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, caramel, molasses, and faint cherry. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin ring. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate, light-moderate molasses, and a hint of caramel. The finish has roasted coffee, faint tart cherries and the slightest hint of nuts. It’s medium-full bodied with mild carbonation.

Dark brown to black pour with a tan head. The aroma has some nice roasted malt, chocolate and cherry notes. The flavor also features a lot of cherries. There is also some heavy chocolate notes that, as expected, go great with the cherries. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Bottle. Pours black. Aroma still chocolate, maybe some mild cherries. Taste is chocolate, cherries as it warms, still like the raspberry better.
