Does this starter look normal?

I'm back at it after a 2 year hiatus. I have not seen any of my starters look quite like this before...

It's Wyeast 3944 in a 1040 wort. Been on the stir plate for about 9 hrs

Does look like a weird color on top but I wouldn't worry about it. Is the wort hopped?

Yea, it's the mocha color on top that I'm weirded out by. Did not hop. I've only ever had white frothy krausens on my starters that I can remember.

Thanks guys! It was definitely stirring (and vortexing). I had taken it off the plate for inspection just prior to the pic and the bar was spinning up again when I took the photo.
