Nose
Caramel, chocolate and a little tart cherry.
Palate
Smooth, chocolatey malt overlaid by interesting but subtle cherry flavours. Hops increasingly make their presence felt and there's more soft caramel. Just a hint of tartness provides a constant bite.
Finish
Dry, grainy and tasting of bitter chocolate. Some gentle, lingering fruit, with hops building all the time.
Comment
An interesting concoction that would be good with a creamy pudding, as long as it's not too sweet. The samples tried were well over carbonated (almost explosive!), but hopefully this problem will now have been addressed.
