Cask at Pizzeria Paradiso Dupont. Poured a dark, slightly hazy brown-orange color with a small off-white head. Aroma was dark roasted, bitter coffee notes, touch of citrus character. Flavor was roasted coffee beans, citrus notes are mellowed a bit. Pretty interesting.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Paradiso Dupont. Murky variegated amber briwn color, thin beige head, solid lacing. Aroma of dark roast coffee on Christmas morning with a tree nearby. Taste is bitter fruity coffee, just like a freshly roasted bright cup of floral roasted beans. I didn’t think the combo would work, but it does.
