bottle: pours dark mahogany with huge beige head. Arouma is musty, fruity and sweet. Taste is sweet and sour, fruity and hint of chocolate. Too much carbonation and not very well balanced. Not a big fan of this one.

This was just awful. The cherries were very artificial and overly sweet. Little other flavor was present. Blah.

On tap at MBG Summer Festival. Poured black with a brown head. Dark chocolate notes with an under tone of cherry. Flavor consisted of dark notes and cherry notes but they combated each other rather than mixing well.
