Can. Pours thick, black, with no head. My can seems to have been leaking too, as there are dried up black drops just under the edge on top. Aroma's are sweetish, milk chocolate, aniseed. Retronasal it's about the same, but the aniseed is much stronger, with additionally perhaps some orange zesty bitterness. Weird, plastic. Flavour is above moderate sweet, light roasty, with the weird zesty bitterness. Rather full bodied. Long finish, somewhat roasted, moderate bitter. I liked the base beer much better.
