Reddish brown with nice off-white head that stays around for a while with nice lacing. Good looking beer. The smell is of mild chocolate malt and hazlenut. Not terribly aromatic but average smell for this style. I also pick up a slight yeasty smell.
The taste is clean with a malty chocalate and nut finish. The aftertaste is pretty thin though. Decent mouthfeel, but on the thin side of medium and the drinkability is good. This is a solid beer and would drink it again given the opportunity.
