Draft/Fest. A- Cherry, funky, slightly sour. A- Brown color, cloudy liquid, minimal head. T- Cocoa, subtle cherry. P- Medium body, gritty texture, average carbonation, unique finish. O- Not sure why this is retired as there are fresh bottles at a local bottle shop and I just had this on tap at a fest. A bit odd. Tasted almost gritty and had some chocolate/dry cocoa taste to it. Also looked like sewer water.
