Sample from 75 cl .bottle. Pitch black with a thin, tanned head. Roasted aroma with coffee, chocolate, caramel and vanilla, light cherries. Taste is sweet. Full body with an oily texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry and roasted with cherries. Rather alcohol dense. A bit unbalanced, not unpleasant.

Very dark reddish brown, like black in the glass. Slightly sourness from the cherish. Chocolate and malts. Better as expected... On the other hand... it’s H&V, i’m just not that a big fan of cherries...
