Cracked black pepper and sandalwood aromas present themselves assertively but complement the base beer’s tangerine, clementine and citrus peel notes. Balanced and juicy on the palate, caramel-like malt flavor helps temper bitterness and spice from the wood, while the distinct flavor of cedar lingers long on the tongue.
