Should have known by the time I got to this that they know what they’re doing with the low abv stuff. Delicate balance is well done bewtween light chocolate and roasted malt and even lighter tones of toffee, coffee and hops. Well done!"

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have some mild roasted malts, chocolate, hints of coffee, the nose and flavor are pretty standard for a porter, only negative is that its on the thin side.
