bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 7, 2007
Poured a clear amber orange with a small temporary head. Musky, earthy aroma on top of a malty lager base with a touch of apples. If fact the aroma carries quite a pong that gets a bit offensive after a while. The taste is ok, with a nice bitterness and a restrained sweetness. The carbonation a touch excessive giving a few muted burps, and it’s a bit sharp and twangy. Can’t say I’m really enamoured with this beer, but it’s sort of interesting enough.

thewolf (11312) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 27, 2007
Bottle. Pours a vague copper with a small, almost non-existent head. Aroma is musky, with some tones of nuts. Quite dry with a peppery bitterness. Balanced well with caramel and a distant nuttyness.

janubio (467) - SPAIN - APR 7, 2007
Pours a nice copper colour with a light head that doesn’t hold very long. some lace. Some strong smell that to me is more walnuts than chesnuts, actually. Some spices too. Anyway, after a while almost all the aroma is gone and the only smell is a vague spice one. Taste is rough, with something that now, yes, reminds me vaguely of chesnuts, some bittersweet notes and fruits in the bottom. Dry finish. Again, after a while, everything is almost gone, leaving only some sulphur notes.

jazz88 (2577) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 28, 2007
Bottle. A golden amber color with a white head. A bandaid, smoke, and nut aroma with some sweet caramel. The flavor has nuts, earthiness, light malts, and smoke. Wet and light with a sharp distinctive taste.

StueyD (1330) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2007
A mid copper brown coloured beer with a thickish white head. A zesty nose to start with, then a slightly smoky malt aroma, with hints of chocolate and dark fruits. The taste is dry with a touch of citrus hop. Then the smoky malt element comes through, slightly nutty and fruity. The finish is dry and fizzy on the mouthfeel.
