Bottle. A very murky brown with a small film head. Powerful aroma. Sweet, raisins, dark caramel, some distant chocolate or cocoa. Quite light body - surprisingly so! Flavour is ominated by liqourice and a roasted bitterness with some vanilla and chocolate as well. Disappointing taste compare to aroma.
