Bright golden amber color. Herbal, citrusy aromas of flamed orange peel, cinnamon spice tisane, black licorice, and stout with a round, vibrant, bittersweet medium-to-full body and a warming, complex, medium-long hot cinnamon candies, wormwood, clove, lemon drop candies, and buckwheat honey finish. A spicy, herbal liqueur with intense yet balanced bitter notes.

Bitter liqueurs are quite famous, especially those from Italy, such as amaro, and France. These liqueurs are made in various regions throughout these countries and are made from secret recipes of herbs and spices - some local, many imported from other territories. The herbs and spices include things such as orange peel, rhubarb, pomegranate and tree bark. Quite often these are mixed with fruit juices for pre-dinner cocktails, while most examples of amaro are enjoyed straight, often as a digestif. Alcohol levels are usually around 20% to 25%.
