Sampled on 17/03/2012

Appearance:

Opaque, wet sand / café crème colour.

Aroma:

Mocha coffee, liquorice and aniseed.

Sweet but the thick cream helps mellow this. The flavour is of refreshing aniseed and liquorice.

Aftertaste:

Biscuity coffee emerges in the creamy aniseed and liquorice finish.
