The first thing you notice is spicy malt notes, then comes the fruit - candied orange peel and raspberries. Dark chocolate, dried grass and cinnamon flavors emerge and are then followed by a little marzipan. On the palate a little cracked black pepper flickers through a rounded and full-bodied palate, which carries plenty of thick caramel, tropical fruit and vanilla cookies. Finish shows a hint of citrus fruit, brown sugar and earthy florals remain.
