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.
