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 there’s 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 I’ll 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 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 (11555) - 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 (541) - 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 (2613) - 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.

FrankJohansen (3614) - Sabro, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2007
Bottle. Clear golden colour with a medium frothy mostly diminishing head. Aroma and taste of mallt and barnyard. Unpleasent finish

Bottle. Frothy white good mostly deminishing head. Dark yellow colour. Light malty and hoppy aroma. Notes of barnyard. Light acetic and moderate bitter finish. Creamy palate. Strange beer, but I kind of like it.
