Draft at Churchkey. Deep, rich brown pour with a decently sized frothy white head. Nose holds nice soft nuttiness, with some bready malt and light plum and nectarine notes added in the flavor. A decent brown ale, but nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium brown colour. Not much head. Mild aroma mixes nuts and caramel. Light bodied, a little toasty and a little nutty. Finishes reasonably dry. Decent brown ale, with no real chestnut character. (the ones in Europe donít have it either).

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Elysian Fields. Nice rich true chestnut brown color. Very dark. Aroma is not huge, very mellow, cakey but not sweet. Thin and not super flavorful but a genuine chestnut beer! Well made. Nice rich cakey dark malts,excellent malt character. Better than many other chestnut beers as itís nice and dry and balanced. And refreshing, too.

draft at the elysian pike street. pours a cloudy dark brown...not, in fact, entirely unlike a chestnut. mild sweet brown sugar nose with earthy and nutty tones. watery light body. sweet sugar and nut mid palate. turns christmas tradition on its head, in a mild, dark, lagery way.

Nose is very interesting per the style. Nutty, doughy, earthy with hints of chocolate and caramel as well. A touch of bread. Brown pour, muddy with a creamy head. The flavor is also somewhat doughy, earthy, nutty. Light smokey notes. Interesting earthy dustiness. High drinkability at around 4%.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours a mahogany body with an off white head. Chewy toffee and nutty with a malt driven body well accented with roasted malt and some dry malt. Thin simple and session able. Win.

Gorgeous deep mahogany and ruby color with luscious head. Pleasant, moderately hopped aroma, perhaps with a dusting of nut and malt. Musky, smoked beech flavor. Nice, but not really a "nut brown" quality.

On tap at the Elysian in Capitol Hill. Not sure why it has not been listed yet. The chestnut is not really prevalent enough. They should look toward Rogue Hazelnut Brown as a guide. Still, a solid effort.
