Dark brown beer - opaque with a small off white head. Smooth semi dry palate. Smooth nutty malt with a trace of chocolate powder. A little fruit underneath. Semi dry finish. Quite well joined up, not bad.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fine aroma of chestnut malt with a wisp of smoke. Slightly hazy dark ruby amber with a noisy, long-lasting warm off-white head and streaks of lace. taste begins with caramel malt augmented with roasted chestnut, perhaps a little nutmeg. As the taste grows through the palate, a little smoke joins and remains long after a bitternut nut finish. Overall, a little heavy, but one is perfect for sipping with dessert in front of the fire on a cold night. Recommended.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at the brewpub
Chestnut meal and honey
Dark brown color, murky, with generous compact head. Delicate aroma of malt, smoke, hops, wood. Too much carbonation; at least the mouthfeel is smooth; dry feeling of caramel, cocoa, light smoke; the final is lightly astringent, with very light minty impression, and rather strong bitterness. Well brewed technically, not impressive recipe though.

Bottle shared with the Richmond guys at Churchkey. Muddy brown color, small tan head. Aroma of honey and graham crackers. Taste starts sweet, honey and malto meal. No detectable hops. Not bad as chestnut beers go.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours dark amber brown with a 3 finger creamy/bubbly beige head. Aromas of nut and honey. Med body. Itís lightly sweet, and it has that chestnut flavor with some mildly spicey honey behind it. Honey flavor, tho not sugar particularly, comes forth in the finish.

Brown pour. Tan head. Odd sour and malty aroma and flavor. Weird. Sparky and Walter say yoyoyoyoyoyoyo.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine. This brew is a cloudy brownish-amber color with a thin light beige head that diminishes to an outer ring rather quickly. Stringy lacing. Aroma of smoked honey ham and nuts. Medium body with smoked meat character and flavors of roasted nuts and sweet malt. The finish is smoky with a roasted chestnut aftertaste. Not really a bad beer I just couldnít get into it.
