Bottle shared with Andrew and Kramer back at the hotel after THE FESTIVAL 2013. Pours a deep black body with thin lacing. Aroma is sweet raspberries, sweet roast and chocolate. Mouthfeel is medium to rich with notes of sweet chocolate covered raspberries and a nice roast compliment. Some warming in the finish.

Bottle. Pours dark with a decent amount of head. The aroma is some fruit, but can't pin it on raspberry. The taste is a little over carbonated for my taste. The raspberry comes through nicely in the taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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

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.

Jow (2086) - New York, USA - MAY 9, 2013
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.

A big thanks to dcschiller for sharing this. Dark brown pour, fudgey brown head. Flavor is exactly damn what it says on the bottle! Raspberry truffles! Sweet berries intertwined with fudgey notes, vanilla...awesome!!
