Dark brown black color. Spicy aromas and flavors of black licorice and autumn leaves with a velvety, bright, moderately sweet medium-to-full body and a warming, breezy finish that shows accents of dark roast coffee, cola, malta, and buttered pumpernickel with cinnamon sugar finish. A rich licorice-flavored liqueur that brings a welcome bitter, coffee-cola character the the table.

Herb/spice liqueurs are alcoholic beverages that contain added flavor from the addition of spices, herbs, barks or roots. There are many famous herbal liqueurs in Europe, some of them produced by monks or other religious orders; some of these contain more than 100 herbs as part of the recipes!

These liqueurs are most often served neat, although some are mixed with water and/or ice. Most have an alcoholic range between 35%-55%.
