Bottle. Pours a pitch black with a big, light brown head. Aroma of dark fruity sweetness, chocolate, sweet orange, syrup and brown sugar, walnut, "brunsviger". Taste is sweet with syrup, cinnamon, overripe orange and christmas. More one sided taste than the aroma, but really nice. Smooth, fat body with a medium low carbonation.
