3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
75 cL bottle (sample). Pours reddish with huge white head. Sweet barly aroma with minor citric note. Strong oily, wineous mouthfeel. Taste is sweet malt. Alcohol stands out in feel and finish in a rather simple beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle 75 cl) Slightly hazy amber golden with an almost absent, off-white head. Sweetish, lightly caramelish aroma. Fairly full body with sweetish, lightly caramelish malts. Subdued bitterness. I don’t really pick up the chestnuts, but this is drinkable stuff indeed. Courtesy of Ungstrup. 220207

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. An amber beer with some gunk floating around under a lazing light orange head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of alcohol, medium notes of caramel, and light notes of lemon. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, caramel, and alcohol. The alcohol leaves a warming sensation. I find it a bit too simple and raw.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Red-amber beer with small transparant head. Toffee, caramel, plywood, and a few phenols in the nose. Leafy, shrubbery flavours, sweet and full bodied, obviously influenced by the chestnuts. Slick, nearly viscous, warming sensations. Good strong ale, chestnuts help without imposing themselves; a bit pity about the nose.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy brown color, better head than the Melissa. The aroma shows some malt and a very light fruitness and hop. Medium body structure, with enough malt flavor; the chestnut flavor is subtle but clear, adding some complexity. A quite good Ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Bottled] Hazy amber, rich lively head. Fruity citric nose. Bready with notes of butterscotch and nuts. Medium sweet, very malty and somewhat syrupy. Dominated by a rye bread flavour that I believe is derived from the chestnuts. Just some late bitterness. Interesting!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. A beer made with chestnuts, so naturally i found some nutty characters, in both aroma and flavour. Alcohol is fairly well noticed, and as dorquie mentions gives it a hint of liquer type qualities. Some subtle caramel, with a touch of woody dryness. Quite interesting.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Bottled 0,75L.
Beer of chestnuts, not flavoured but produced with addition of true chestnuts. Much dark brown color with reddish glares. Fraught, dense and with optimal fizz. Bulky and dense nut head, medium resistance. Much decided and complex scent: resin, burned wood, chestnuts and dry leafs. Elevated alcoholic perception with liqueur notes. Much prickly and strongly impact taste. Extremely alcoholic and complex with warm notes of must and chestnuts under liqueur. Long, fraughted end, optimal persistence.
Thanks to Nello for this one.
