Tallahassee, Fl - Proof Production Facility - on tap. Viscous, dark black, motor oil-like pour - light mocha colored head. Olive oil and topsoil in the aroma. Bittersweet chocolate, some topsoil, a touch of pipe tobacco, a slight whisper of licorice. Slick mouthfeel that thickens as it warms. Pretty decent.

10w40 pour. Roasty and alfalfa aroma -- a little off-putting as it reminded me of cleaning out rabbit cages. Clean roast flavor, creamy, not too bitter. Drinkable, not remarkable. A little coffee twang at the end. On tap, Proof Production Facility.
