Bottle. Grabbed this on a recent trip down to FL. Bottled on 7/9/07. 18% abv, wow! Poured a deep hazy orange apricot color with minimal head. The aroma is a sweet smells of raspberry, vanilla, and alcohol. The first sip is fruity but then the alcohol bites back a little but not necessarily in a bad way. The more I sip on it the better it becomes. Surprised how drinkable it is for the abv. Med/Heavy mouthfeel. Overall, I actually really like this one and would have it again.
