Notes

An inviting nose neat with sweetish-malty, slightly roasted aromas of coffee beans is followed by chocolate, hazelnut and vanilla. Add a sprinkle of chopped coriander, a squeeze of lime juice, cinnamon and nutmeg and this is a fascinating concoction. The taste is an almost perfect balance between sweet dark fruits (blackberries and blackcurrant) and a malty body, with spicy floral hops and a slightly citrus/caramel finish. Water adds aromas of caramel, butterscotch, vanilla custard and a hint of oak, while on the palate there's a delightful teasing interplay between chocolate-dipped coconut macaroons and tongue-tingling ground cinnamon, nutmeg and pumpkin pie spice.
