Soft vanilla notes hit the nose first and unleash a wave of fruity and spicy aromas that blow the taster away. A sublime hint of orange gives the beer a pleasant citrus accent as the perfect match for the sweet caramel. There is also room for a floral undertone with camomile, crowned by a subtle touch of pomegranate and a dash of almond liqueur. A brilliant combination of delicious apricot and candied fruit with creamy mocha epitomizes the full-bodied complexity of the beer.
The aftertaste also packs a delicious punch, with an astounding spicy kick and a refreshing taste of green apple.
