Sharp hop-charred black patent malts leave pungent impression upon grapefruit-peeled pineapple bittering, juicy orange tang and sweet cherry-blackberry-nectarine-melon-banana conflux. Recalling a chocolate-fruited fondue, its sugary marzipan pasting adds syrupy thickness at the alcohol-burnt citric finish.
