, Stockholm. Black colour, big creamy beigeish brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, coffee, some smoked wet wood as well as some mild notes of cherries. Flavour is quite much the same and also has some liquorice and tarry notes in addition. Cherries barely show in this brew.
Bottle. Dull brown color, coca-cola head. Aroma of chocolate muffin. Tastes like sour root beer. Interesting, and probably worth trying again. omhper (25808) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2009
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Almost black, rich creamy head. Tarry nose with fruity black currant. Sweet and very full bodied, soft with amounts of roasty malt coming across as tar and licorice. The sour cherries are subtle in comparison, making this a harmonious despite the somewhat crazy concept. Perhaps the overt sweetness disturbs a little bit in the finish.

Tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours black with a substantial, beige head. Roasted malt aroma with notes of chocolate and faint berry. Flavor is sweet with rich with more roast and mocha, as well as some understated cherry. Medium to full bodied with very smooth carbonation. Finishes roasty and sweet with some dry bitterness. Quite good. rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 10, 2012

Malty cherry flavor, spicy, viol, licorice, chocolate, berries, cocoa powder, pepper, vinous, some hoppy metal. Interesting but maybe lacking some body.
