Paradise By The Dashboard Light Doubly Blessed Cherry Porter

12 oz stubbie as pictured.
Poured into the Terrapin snifter, the beer is perhaps not as viscous as I was expecting. Head is a light mocha color but very fine and light.
Nose has dry, baking chocolate (or cocoa/Cadbury’s drinking chocolate) with some light fruit infused. The fruit seems like a cross between cherry and raspberry, but to be honest it is more on the raspberry side of things to my nose.
Tastes are light but at the same time have some decent presence. There are plenty of slightly bitter chocolate notes with a gentle fruity acidity alongside it. The aftertaste and finish linger very gently with touch more bitterness and some subtle, light cherry juice.
The body is light as well which helps add to the drinkability and puts it into the “high” category. ABV nowhere to be seen.
Actually, counter to my initial thoughts, this was a really subtle, light beer and was very drinkable and approachable. Tasty too.
