Cloudy, deep brown with shades of amber.
Cocoa beans, chocolate and vanilla. (Not nearly as intense as Giffard’s white crème de cacao.)
Cocoa beans, coffee and chocolate with some vanilla. Creamy rather than syrupy mouthfeel and superbly sugar to bitter chocolate balance with faint black pepper spice. Far more flavoursome than the relatively closed nose would suggest.
Medium length coffee, cocoa bean and dark chocolate finish.
