StueyD (1440) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2007
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.

BeerBiker (1413) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 4, 2007
[Tasted locally in Calvi, Corse in 2003.] My beer nr. 250. Imagine Asterix at Corsica (MinAmandaVarFraKertemix) combined with the open sky in the night, then this beer is the one and only. Because of the chestnut you can smell the Corsican Maki in the beer. Very drinkable with hoppy fruit "aroflavor"

bierkoning (11134) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2006
Malty sweet aroma with a touch of cake dough. Nutty flavor, must be the chestnuts. Sweetish, somewhat herbal and malty. Bittersweet aftertaste. OK.

jazz88 (2607) - 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.
