Tattooed Nun

Tattooed Nun is all about contrast and balance. On one hand as a black it offers the ultimate guilty pleasure – rich with buttery caramel flavours and a dark chocolate finish.

Molasses, dried raisin, stone fruits, dark chocolate, creamy mouth feel, mild acidity, pecan, vanilla, heavy body, juicy.
