tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy mahogany with large beige head. The aroma is sweet caramel with a distinct nuttiness and a few acidic fruit notes. The flavor is, well, chestnut, with a caramel sweetness behind it. There’s a bit of a leafy hop bitterness around, too. The finish is tree fruit and light caramel. Kind of predictable, but decent.

dwyerpg (4579) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 16, 2009
This has a weird aroma, a little soapy. the flavor on this is strange. A bit of malt, maybe some nuts, but also with a character reminiscent of Christmas ales. One of the guys here says that if you’ve ever tried chestnuts, it tastes just like that.

The flavor had more caramel malt, nuts, mild sourness, alcohol, and spices. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Interesting but not my thing.

PhillyBeer2112 (2528) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Reddish copper, foaming fizzy head. Aroma is restrained but hints at nuts and caramel. Maybe a little spicy gingerbread or candied citrus? Flavor is light and bready with a hint of rye and a little alcohol burn at the finish, which is kinda rough and maybe even a tad fuselly.
