"Dark chocolate truffles lead on the nose, with toasted rye bread and dill pickles combining for a deli sandwich effect. There's also black licorice, spicy oak, and cinnamon. The palate offers cedar chips with cinnamon and cloves, chocolate malt balls, baked apples, Red Hots, and aniseed. A spicy, moderate length finish showcases spearmint, black pepper, parbaked dough and oak."
