Complex nose that starts with a fruity tanginess before shifting to a sweet chocolate powder note and a faint suggestion of burnt toffee, in the mouth though its all quite muted, with some background fruitiness and a gentle chocolate powder bitterness, finish is brief, muted and vaguely suggestive of bitter chocolate.
