Bronze color. Aromas and flavors of toasted walnuts and artichoke, singed bacon fat brussels sprouts, burnt caramel, and rhubarb with a syrupy, tangy, off-dry medium-to-full body and a smooth, subtle, medium-long finish conveying notes of burnt sugar on blood orange, espresso grounds mixed with demerara sugar, very dark chocolate, and gentian. A racy treat to sip after a heavy Italian meal or a perfect addition for a Black Manhattan.

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%.
