mmather (148) - Colorado, USA - APR 6, 2008
Very intriguing beer. At first a seemingly normal european lager, but then a hint of nuttiness and smokiness on the palate. Very smooth and well rounded a very nice beer that is not your normal lager. A good change of pace.

imdownthepub (12676) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2007
Bottled 330ml from Waitrose, Witney. Amber with white head. Volcanic pour, heavily malted dark lager, not bad when you get into it, some spice some fruitiness, but a finishing yeasty note ruins it a little. Alcohol on the close.

MikeF (538) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2007
malty non specific aroma. Peachy golden. Fleeting white head. Average amber style flavor, yet slightly sweeter. finishes sweet and with a hint of chestnut.

schuimkroaat (427) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 18, 2007
33 cl bottle, ’bbe’ 2009. Coppery colour, totally clear. Frothy head of no particular stability. Malty and rubbery nose, some nutty notes. The hops only become apparent in the taste, adding to the malts and a gentle fruitiness and spiciness. Surprising alcohol warmth in the throat.

nigos (631) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - DEC 15, 2007
darkish amber hue with a decent head. Malty caramel like nose. Resonable flavour with not much to note a few malty tones and a bitter finish not much else to note.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 6, 2007
Copper body with minimal thin head. Aroma is caramel malts and some light nut notes. Flavour is semi-sweet with only a touch of chestnut. Finishes a little earthy.

KnutAlbert (6600) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2007
Bottle bought in Milan. Lovely amber color lift the expectations, but they soon fall down again. Rather boring and anonymous, I can’t get much chestnusts or any other ingredients out of this!
