(draft @ Local Option - Chicago, IL) Dark brown pour with a thick tan head. Chocolate and roasted malt aroma with a milder hint of cherries than the raspberry one had. Flavor is sweet and chocolatey with a good amount of roast and a hint of tart cherries near the finish.

MrHangover (2762) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 30, 2014
Bottle @ THT November. Pours a pitch black beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma of licorice,cherry, light chocolate. Flavor is quite sweet, light boozy and I was expecting some of the distinguishing truffle taste in there, but there wasn’t. Fruits are in there. Aftertaste is sweet, slightly boozy. Good stuff, but misses some complexity.

Dark brown, bit of tan foam. Nose is light cherry, vanilla, maybe some coffee. Taste is cherry vanilla with a hint of cacao on the back end. Thin body loses points but not bad in the taste department. Pretty spot on.
