Color mogano scuro con schiuma beige abbondante. Sentori di uvetta, toffee e frutta sotto spirito; gusto dolce, vinoso, note fruttate e maltate con un finale leggermente più amarognolo. Corposa e liquorosa, abv un po’ invadente ma in ogni caso molto buona.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought online @ Drankgigant. Hazy red brown with a small off-white head. Very strong sweet herbal aroma. smelled it from a distance of half a meter. Medium bitter taste with hints of chocolate and molasses along with caramel en dried fruits. Bit of an odd taste actualy. I don’t really like it but can’t really explain why. It all tastes artificial and off-balance
