Aromas of dark chocolate and espresso are complemented by soft spiciness of cinnamon. Flavors of licorice, treacle and light smokiness are rounded out by vanilla and woody notes from whiskey barrels, adding an additional alcohol spiciness and lively texture on the palate. Cinnamon on the palate presents assertively but complimentary, bringing dimension without overwhelming the beer.
