On tap at Monk’s Kettle, SF. Almost black, beige head. Rich chocolate, roasted coffee, hints of tart fruit. Well-balanced flavours, dry roast countering sweeter chocolate malts. A bit light body, but good overall. Getbetter (1033) - East Palo Alto, California, USA - DEC 26, 2014
From a tap at the brewery. The pour is a very dark red with an minimum white head. There’s slight silk texture, rasin, roasty malt. I like it . slowrunner77 (12040) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 16, 2014
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!"
