Growler thanks to Travlr. Pours muddier deep brown. Pours with a thick, tan head. Webby lacing. Nose is nutty macadamia, vanilla, hazelnut, something odd like cooked broccoli and vanilla scented candle. Taste is very thin, soil heavy, a lot of lemon tea. Very light cocoa and roast. Very light body.

Draft at the source. Cloudy dark maroon color, large fluffy brown head with decent retention and solid lacing. Aroma of slightly funky cocoa, coffee grounds. Taste is roasty yet creamy dark milk chocolate and caffe macchiato. Tasty.
