Bottle. Pours an inky black beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma has big oaky notes, like sweet bourbon vanilla, loads of caramel and sugar. Flavor starts off sweet, has a decent amount of coffee bitterness in the back and loads of sweet, roasty boozy notes. Very nice complexity going on here. Deep, full flavored. Very nice.
