DandyWolfFloyd (617) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Aroma - nice aroma is caramel, nutty, and some vanilla Appearance - body is amber; the beer really wants to shoot out the bottle, the head sets up fast at about 3/4" off-white head, but quickly ends up at nothing; there is a very small bit of nucleation Taste - the beer is sweet; there is a caramel malt quality; a very subtle nuttiness; and some suggestion of vanilla -> but that comes off more as caramel Palate - body is slightly above light; the texture somewhat of a slick syrupy quality; the carbonation is between average and flat; the finish is somewhat sweet and last for a short period I really enjoyed Bourganel’s Nougat, I was hoping this would blow me away as well. It was ok, but very forgettable. If it tasted as good as it smelled it would have been a great beer.

Aurelius (3906) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Y’know, I wouldn’t know a chestnut if it hit me in the face. Clear bronze, no head. Sweet cigar tobacco andtannian aroma. Peaty, chewing tobaco, ceary flavor. Interesting. Medium ’clear’ body, dusty stogie finish. Off the beaten path, enjoyable French PA. On tap, Angel Trumpet, Phoenix AZ.

StueyD (1066) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2013
A mid, reddish-brown coloured beer with a weak white head. A slightly sour aroma, but rounded, dark, ripened fruit and as expected, a certain amount of nuttiness that does stray into a hint of meatiness, which is met with a yeasty smell, reminiscent of Marmite. A fizzy but medium mouthfeel. The initial flavour is sour, yeasty and fruity, but this is soon followed by a more smoother, sweet nutty taste with malt that elevates the vanilla to the fore, right the way to the finish.
