transparent light brown ale, large bubbles white ring. Really jammy, nutty nose, stinky earth. Really sweet flavor, bit barky and dry. Lightly carbonated, pretty sweet, like the bitter balance but overall not enough.

Funky nose with some darker sugar notes and a touch of doughy yeast. Taste is lightly sweet, just a touch of bitterness, some nuts, some caramel, and a touch of vienna malt.

Bottle shared by argo0: Pours a clear copper amber with a spotty-lacing off-white head. Has a sweet toasty caramel nose with a lightly chestnut character. Starts with good fullness and sweet chewy caramel malts with some doughy character and mild nuttiness in the dry finish. True to style, fairly unique and quite drinkable.

750 ml. Deep, clear amber body. Fizzy, off-white head. Malty aroma of toasted grain, nuts and hints of caramel, spice, earthiness, wood along with some vegetal notes. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. The taste on the front of the tongue is earthy and husky. the finish leaves tastes of wood, caramel, raw grain. Plenty of bitterness, but the malts are dominant throughout.

Draft @ blind tiger. Pours a deep amber brown. No head. Smells of malt , toffee and candy, tastes of cream, coal and sugar. Not much going on here. Not a fan

Appearance: clear bronze with a one-finger light tan head; some lacing. Aroma: malty and sweet, with caramel and toasted nuts. Taste: toasty, nutty, malty and sweet; lots of grains, with minimal hops. Finish: clean, crisp, sweet, and a little powdery. Notes: Disclaimer: I love a good lager, so I found it very enjoyable. I felt the chestnut flour did impart a little extra nuttiness to the flavor, and some of that dry, slightly talc-like complexion to the palate. Very nice. Ratebeer indicates its retired, but I just got this bottle from the Rare Beer Club.
