A nice brown ale indeed, solid brown color, chocolate hoppy aroma. Taste is good, featuring chocolate notes with a dry finish, but could be more assertive. Very smooth with a relatively light body.

Drank from a bottle purchased at Wegmans. Has a nice malty/nutty aroma to it. Tastes a bit overly nutty and a bit watered down.
