Bottle shared by a guy during trivia night at the brass tap, poured a black color with aromas of light coffee, and raspberries. Flavors were light earth, coffee, and raspberries. Thanks to the kind person who shared this beer.

Pours like cola with a very aggressively fizzy, but quickly dissipating head. Looks like cola as well, dark brown but very thin. Smells faintly of raspberry, and a tiny bit of dark roast. Mouth feel is very thin, surprisingly low carbonation considering the aggressive fizzyness when I poured it. Taste is watery chocolate with some raspberry.

Bottle. Pours black with near flawless tan head. Toasty berry aroma. Taste is sweet and dry lots of chocolate and tangy berry. Would be killer barrel aged

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at Binny's in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at a friends house while celebrating new job news. Appearance is pitch black, moderate consistency, light off white head. Aroma of raspberries, rich chocolate, coffee, but mostly raspberries. Taste goes down pretty sour, large raspberry notes, chocolate as well, bit of cacao. It's good stuff, but maybe my least favorite style of Abduction.

Too sweet too much berry. Slight hint of cocoa. Not a fan, reminded me of the early bramble without the bourbon.

Didn’t really know what to expect with this. Aroma is very chocolate. Didn’t really get much raspberry. Taste pretty much follows suit. If you swirl it around in your mouth for a second or two then the raspberry really comes out. Medium bodied and easy to drink. Another good brew from Pipeworks.

Bottle at AZ crews’ driveway tasting. Pours dark brown with nose of raspberry truffles for sure. tastes of chocolate truffles, maybe some tobacco and mostly of raspberry syrup to me a little too artificial feeling than fresh fruit. that being said its pleasant and nice creamy mouth feel.

Hello raspberry! Pours a dark brown with reddish head. Taste of RASPBERRY, RASPBERRY, RASPBERRY is overpowering. Finishes with a mild flavor of chocolate and a creamy mouthfeel.

Bottle from csteele! Thanks Chris!! Pours dark brown with a trim espresso head. Aroma is raspberry and chocolate. Taste really follows suit and reminded me of GI BCS Bramble, especially in the body, which was relatively thin. Cool beer!
