3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 23, 2012 Tap at Birreria Paradiso in Georgetown. Dark brown, brown head. Not much aroma. Very bitter and metallic, may be an infection. Unpleasant. I would try it again in a bottle to be sure, but this one is not working. 1.8
Second try, nitro. Very dark brown, huge thick briwn head, solid lacing. Arona of dark cocoa powder. Taste is bitter cocoa and burnt espresso. Much better.
