Poured into a shaker pint glass. Pours a very dark brown, appearing nearly black in the glass with a one finger off-white head with good retention and light lacing. Nice aroma of toasted malt with light chocolate and coffee. Hints of dark dried fruit and char. Medium bodied. This was somewhat underwhelming cold out the keg, but as it warmed, the flavors were robust and well balanced. Complexity of flavor is not obvious right away because of the good integration and balance. I will be happy to encounter this again. Georgetown is fairly widely distributed on tap in Seattle, and is underrated considering their quality. This was on-tap next to Lucille and I really wanted to drink Lucille again; I ended up drinking this a second time before having a taster of Lucille. Nice.
