Brown yellow pour. Aroma vanilla faint malt chesnuts. Tastes woody chesnuts cocoa. Great integration of Chesnut flavor. I’m obsessed with Chesnut beers and this one is solid.

Ambrée claire limpide, peu effervescente, première gorgée presque décente mais suivantes sont rapidement écoeurantes, arrière bouche fade hormis un goût désagréable qui est surement celui des châtaignes (que je n’aime pas de base). Bouteille 33cl achetée chez Nature et Découverte, Noisy-le-Grand, France, bue le 09/03/2016.

Translucent brown with almost no head. Very sweet malty aroma and a bit nutty. It just tastes like watered down malt. Kinda gross.

Zilb (181) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - JAN 20, 2016
Pas de mousse et peu de bulles. Couleur ambrée foncée. Arôme subtil de chataîgnes, que je n’ai perçus qu’à la fin de la bière en plusieurs temps. Boulinf à lui sentis une saveur "carambar". En bouche, même sensation avec la chataîgne qui revient en arrière plan.

Draft at The Avenue Pub, New Orleans. Medium amber with minimal off-white head. Aroma of nut extract, some caramel malt. Taste: largely of of chestnut, maybe a little caramel. The nuttiness dominates the taste, and not necessarily in a good way. A mildly dry, nutty bitterness for the finish.

darbeer75 (554) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Aroma: wine like with some alcohol; Appearance: dark red amber with no head; Taste: very distinctive chestnut taste that has a big initial hit and then diminishes quickly; overwhelming if you don’t like it; Palate: medium-heavy body with soft carbonation; odd aftertaste; Overall: hit the wall on the chestnut taste. Wouldn’t get again.

0,33l Flasche. Braune klare Farbe mit flachem Schaum. Es duftet nussig und nach Malz. Süsslich nussiger Geschmack.

a bit of a strange one, had twice in 12 hours and was quite different both times.. chestnuts, hazelnuts, cereal, and hay .. light mouth, refreshing but just slightly aloof .. . . this is the blow-up crystal ball for the shaman who likes to travel!

carac (5) - Cuesmes, BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2015 does not count
Le nez évoque la patisserie, des épices, un peu caramel. Le couleur, évoque d’emblée le marron glacé. La mousse retombe vite, très vite. En bouche, on retrouve le marron glacé, et de la vanille. Agréable en automne ou encore en été. Fraiche, rafraichissante, legerement sucrée, mais non saturée.

mansquito (5457) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2015
The Sampler, NYC bottle ($7): pours brown. Aroma is medicine and chestnut and malt. Taste is cheatnut, sweetness, and a bit of cheatnut. Body is mercifully light. Not good.
