Bottle. [thanks JensenTaster]
Completely black with a small, creamy, beige, staying head. Arroma is kinda weird, light sourish, kinda fresh, good chocolate. Low carbonation, fat and creamy, Flavour is (thankfully) better than the aroma. Light dryness, lots of fat chocolate, some mild vegetable notes. Overall really not the very good.
