Hard Live 08. Dark brown pour with some red hues. The aroma has lots of candied sweetness. My notes say cherries, cough syrup, and cherry coke, but not in a bad way, if that makes sense. Flavor initially is pleasant and sweet with fruity cherry notes, chocolate. Thats where it ends. The cough syrup comes through as well as an odd vegetative note. Turns too medicinal and become almost like drinking cough syrup. Good start, bad finish.
