Brown ale with a small 2/5" white head on it. Hit the chocolate malt notes, some citrus, has those citrus and chocolate notes that ladies are into sometimes.

Taste was the same, this is already a 1st tier brown ale in my mind. Hits nutty stride as well. Hides the alcohol amazingly well. Well done.
