Beautifull dark red color and a big and nice yellowish foam.
Smell is full of caramels and cherry. Maltiness comes higher in the taste, altogether with other red fruit tones. Alcohol is also evident in the taste.
Body and carbonation are at good level, but less than it seems.
Yeah.. great beer ;)
I think the reason I didn't like very much this one is because of the huge ABV - not for me..
