Tasted as a Pisco Sour cocktail. Clear bronze color. Lively, meaty, spicy fruity aromas of chocolate covered espresso bean, smoked pepper, toasted brown spices, and cedar and frankincense incense with a silky, soft, dryish medium body and an intricate, medium-length sassafras, chocolate nuts, and nougat pistachio finish. This is a nice mocha-sassafrass-like bitters that brings a baked, brown roundness to cocktails; in the pisco sour it combined with the creaminess of the egg to create an interesting chocolate soufflé note.
