2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
