Bottle at home with friends, courtesy of Scott. Thanks man! Pour is deep brown with a small tan head that quickly dissipated. Cocoa, roasty, earthy, nutty, bready, and grassy aroma. Taste is chocolate, coffee grounds, bready, toasted bread, light grass, dark fruits, earthy, and dirt with a bitter finish> medium body with soft carbonation. Well-built just very uninspiring.
