(sample best before 28/May/15) Clear, deep teak brown (virtually black and opaque in the glass) with plentiful large bubbles.
Fresh cherries, cherry flavoured bubble gum, stewed fruit, crystallised orange, ginger, herbal spice and Cola Cube sweets.
Initial fresh ripe cherry fades as cola flavours emerge and dominate.
Confectionery-like maraschino cherry, amaretto and mocha coffee. Ending with lingering barky cola.
