Gusher. Pours deep deep brown, bordering on black. Staying, frothy, light fizzy, beige head. Aroma has cherries, cranberries, chocolate, deep caramel, some lactic notes. High carbonation, fine creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, caramel, chocolate. Raisins and a slight lactic touch with some metallic off-notes from the carbonation. Vinious and a bit warming.
