Aiming to mix the “better of each worlds,” Rieger succeeds amiably. The nostril leans way more towards espresso bean — a fruit-forward espresso with a be aware of oak — however clearly underlined by gentian, rhubarb, and anise components. The palate flips issues round: Starkly bitter up entrance, with a great deal of gentian and anise, then the espresso, right here displaying extra of the vanilla and a bittersweet chocolate be aware, at the very least for a time. The end returns to an everlasting bitterness, nearly Fernet-like, which pairs nicely with the combo of black espresso notes, some hints of tar, and really darkish chocolate.
