The aroma does have nuts and plenty of malt, but the touch of sourness really hurts the aroma. The appearance is nice its cloudy amber with a large head. The taste is like the aroma and hurt by the sour taste. The mouth feel is smooth. Overall it has some good qualities but I don’t really like it that much.

Bottle at home ... The chestnuts make this sound interesting ... so lets go and see ... First off the its a nice red copper colour ... big short lived loose foam head ... odd watery yeasty possible hint of chestnut nose ... woody nutty ... theres definite heavy chestnut tones ... quite a lot of toffee malt ... medium body thats a bt overcarbonated ... the chestnut lingers long but is a bit bitter ... ITs ok, quite a full flavour ... but its not gonna win any prizes from me, though its drinkable enough

Suttree (5222) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 28, 2008
Brown decent sized white head. Spicy, sweet aroma. Flavor is...odd.Sugary sweet, and a lot of cola, maybe? The Bride said it tasted like grape cough medicine, but I didn’t really get that. Maybe some apple, though. Odd brew.

A Mes rate: bottle at GBBF.
A very attractive amber colour with a thin but stable white head. Sweet and spicy with notes of caramel and nuts. Can hardly detect any alcohol in the mouth given the reasonably high abv. Bittersweet finish that is quite roasty and eventual alcohol warmth.
