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

fiulijn (18725) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2006
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.

Leighton (18221) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2010
UPDATED: JUL 12, 2010 Bottle, once at a tasting and once at Swift. Pours a cloudy, light brown with a substantial white head. Nose is all spice and sweet malt. Flavor is dynamic and mostly sweet. Lots of honey and chestnut, along with some less discernable spices. Nice and pretty unique.

Tmoney99 (13336) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured clear brown color with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate toasted nutty malt aroma. Medium to full body, sticky texture and thin particles. Medium sweet spicy flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Balanced drinkable beer that I shared with freinds.
