Bottle. Jeez, been sitting on this at home for a few months, didnít think much of it, didnít know it was a gem! Dynamite hazelnut aroma - richest Iíve ever experienced. Dark dense brown pour with a big beige carbonated head. Lots of carbonation - maybe a bit too much, as it masks some of the flavor. Still excellent.

On tap at Buffalo Philís in the Dells. Very dark brown, pretty much black, with a frothy, light brown head. Very rich hazelnut aroma with light cocoa, mild coffee and a little vanilla. Nutty sweet flavor is almost peanut buttery in its thickness, and cocoa lends a slightly earthy finish. Quite good!
