Bottle. Pours a great looking dark brown with tan head. Aroma is great, notes of malt, dark fruit, black licorice, brown sugar and spice. Flavor is very much the same, semi sweet as well with a touch of dark roasted grain and a nice burnt grain bitter. Mouth feel is medium body with medium carbonation. Overall, a very enjoyable beer but a bit over priced.
