Wood clad barrel pour at Churchkey. Poured a dark amber color, slightly off-white head, plenty of lacing. Aroma was notes of malt, with a touch of hazelnut. Touch of sour notes, with some sweet malts. Interesting brew.

Wolfbass (980) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 23, 2013
Color ambrato carico con schiuma quasi inesistente. Al naso prevale il miele, ed una leggera presenza dell’aroma di castagna. In bocca si sente la componente alcolica, che domina, ma rimane molto godibile e per niente dolce. Non male.

NikkTwist (2003) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Hazy copper pour with a rather full off-white head. Lots of complex dark amber fruit. Hazelnuts. Fair amount of medium-blonde caramel notes. Some sour sparkle. Noticeable bite in the finish. Having an aged version. Cleverly better than it first seems.

Turtles (486) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2015
750ml bottle. Hazy dark amber. Aroma: Deep sweet and nutty fragrance, toffee, chestnut, cherry, forest. The flavor starts with a very pleasant sweetness, burnt brown sugar, nuts, tofee and candies. End becomes slightly sour, but in a pleasant way. Easy to drink, may lack some depth, still exciting,

omhper (21272) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2006
[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!

JorisPPattyn (8432) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2006
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.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Pours a transparent copper orange with a thin, wispy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of doughy, lightly sweet toasty Belgian malt and some earthy spices and nuttiness. Body starts semi-sweet and effervescent with some chestnut flavor and mildly earthy hops toward a drier finish. A nicely balanced and unique chestnut flavored brew.
