turbothy (1090) - Bonn, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2006
Pours amber with beige head. Funny flaky white sediment in the bottle, almost looks like wax. A totally unremarkable beer.

UPDATED: APR 30, 2006 It was my 600th beer, and alot of people took me photos with, but it had a reall interesting flavor, like strong dark lager but really strong. I liked it.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2005
33cl bottle from Auchan. Copper colour with thick lasting beige head. Some caramel and some dead malt aroma. Bit disappointing with a bit of caramel/toffee, rest is dead and lifeless

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Good amber color,large white head that takes a long time to dissipate but leaves a nice lace behind.The aroma was malty and some what tinny with a slight bit of fruit in the background but i fail to see where the nuts come in.The flavor was malty and kind of harshly bitter in some ways,theres a slight citrus in there but itís fleeting and it finishes up with a slight tinnish taste and bitter.The chestnuts just donít seem to be in there that i can tell and if itís the bitter side that it contributes then iíd have to say stop putting the stuff in itís ruining the brew.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2005
Man i saw ambree and thought yass winner, and i smelt the bottle as i opened it and thought oh fuck!, however once poured and left to warm a little it gets better. Aroma started harsh corn and baked beans i wouldnt have given it better than a 1, however grew a little, still a bit of beasn though. Taste is Ah the smokey malts, they save me from the feared beans, theres a little citrus hops in there too, but mainly cominated by malt. Not a bad beer by any means but just not whtc i was expecting.

sunevdj (3152) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2005
Pours a pale amber with a nice white head. Some lacing. Rather bitter and sour. Aromas of bitter hops, metals and spice. Bitter hoppy finish. Rather boring.

joergen (20742) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - NOV 13, 2005
Bottled. Clear orange coloured with a white head. Malty aroma with notes of fruits and hops. Flavour of malts with notes of fruits and hops. Hoppy finish.

rudolf (2341) - Buffalo, New York, USA - NOV 8, 2005
Brought back from France by my parents. Nutty, light malt going on in a very light nose. Reminds me of something from Rogue (why? yeast??) Body is gold, no head and some floaties. Flavor is nutty maple malt, some sulfur, bitter maple finish. A bit of fruit and an underlying taste of the papery material that surrounds nuts. Odd.

Dalle (1145) - SkÝrping, DENMARK - OCT 23, 2005
Bottle. Clear golden-amber with very small lasting head. Aroma says pasteurized lager - slightly herbal perhaps?, flavor holds a light sweetness, nothing much happening before the metallic-oddly-bitter (perhaps nutty?) and long finish. At first a little too fizzy mouthfeel, improves when left for a while. I can drink this - no problem - but Iím not exactly thrilled...
