ekstedt (5844) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 11, 2007
Bottle, 33 cl. Clear amber with a fluffy medium off-white head. Nutty, fruity, and slightly roasted malt aroma, with earthy hops and some alcohol warmth. Medium bodied, lively carbonation. Good balance with a long and bitter finish. Quite nice, but I canít really pick out any chestnus aromas.

downender (6803) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2007
Bottle. Copper coloured with a moderate off-white head. Aroma of nuts and sweet malt. Flavour was fruity with a lot more nuts and a bitter finish. Unusual.

jimhilt (2457) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 28, 2007
From my notes 6/12/07 pours a two-finger white head that quickly goes to a thin layer, leaving a good lace. Nice crystal clear amber color. Medicinal nose. Light-medium carbonation and medium bodied. Flavor is malty almost sweet, hints of alcohol, finish is clean and slightly drying. S.Fr. 3.60 ($2.93) for a 330ml bottle from Drinks of the World Lucerne, Switzerland.

Grovlam (4163) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2007
Bottle. [Trade with thewolf, thanks Renť] Average creamy beige head that mostly lasted. Clear sparkling body with a golden color. Fair lacing. Aroma of caramel, grass, light toasted, hint of nutty notes as well. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Balanced between the bitter and sweet flavor. Light bitter and dry finish.

Some rich grainy malt on the nose. Pours slightly cloudy deep copper gold. More of that richness comes through in the flavour, which is mainly bitter with a long, dry finish. The chestnuts seem to add a bit of cloying astringency at the end that doesnít do the beer any favours. Ok, but not great.

Skinnyviking (7595) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 27, 2007
Bottle. Fluffy buth high and lasting white head. Clear amber body. Weak barley malt aroma. Mind and lightly smoked barley malt flavor with low carbonation.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2007
Interesting - a Vienna brewed with chestnut powder. Looks nice, a bright golden orange body with a thick, slightly off-white head. The aroma starts out sweet and malty, but thereís an element of mildew that wanders into the picture. Tastes bready and sweet and has an addition of tart apples with a modest bitterness that tastes a bit off. Actually drinkable, but I think Iíll pass in the future.

A roasted malts beer we could taste on bottle. Some bitterness and special nut taste. Still a moderate beer

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 itís a bit sharp and twangy. Canít say Iím really enamoured with this beer, but itís sort of interesting enough.

thewolf (11383) - 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.
