Strong cherry aroma and flavor. Just a little hint of honey and chocolate. Head does not last long but is beautiful. Full palate that leaves you craving chocolate.

Thanks to Don for sharing this one in Cologne! Smooth-mild. Very smooth. Chocolate, toffee, espresso. Deep in aroma, the aftertaste is long, intense-deep, not too roasted. Sourish-fresh, also in the aftertaste :)
Great! 14/13/13/14
