Pours out a deep chocolate brown with a small but lasting tan head, not much lace.

Light roasted malt, creamy chocolate and some mineral notes in the nose.

Toasted grain and light chocolate mix up front. Light earthy hop notes in the middle. Very light flavor, though still tasty. Goes down very smooth and easy. A little much on the carbonation.

If you want a sessionable dark beer for this summer, here you go. Tastes good, very low ABV, decent price. Could see this popping up at many a BBQ!

On tap at the brewery. Dark brown color, looks a little light for the style. Aroma is dark malts but no chocolate. Flavor was also missing the chocolate, was sort of watery, weak, not appealing at all. I did not care for this beer and thought it was a poor showing.

A: Pours a dark nearly opaque brown with a fair amount of tan head. Just some surface film retains, leaving reasonable lacing.

S: Very strong chocolate along with mild roasted notes. Pleasant, if a bit overly chocolatey.

T: Nice and mild, lightly roasty, with a chocolatey sweetness that comes in more through the middle and finish. Quite nice overall.

M: Medium body, medium carbonation.

Not the best beer I've ever had, but it's a fairly good one, and had I had it without seeing the label in advance I probably wouldn't have known it was only 3.75%. Definitely worth trying as a session beer, and it's good enough that I'm interested in trying the brewery's other lower alcohol offerings.
