500 ml can...pours clear cinnamon brown w/ a quickly fading off-white head. The aromas were nuts, malts, and caramel. The flavors were a little surprising. The beer was very nutty w/o being over the top and on the back palate there was quite a bit of smokey undertones. It also contained a smooth, caramel flavor throughout. The palate was almost medium bodied with some miled carbonation. The sweetness carried though to the finish. I was surprised by how much I like this beer!

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JUL 7, 2008
Bottled (6% ABV). A clear light amber beer with a small and fast disappearing white head. The aroma is simple, some maltiness, and light notes of caramel and chestnuts. The flavour has more pronounced chestnuts notes, though they are not really in evidence. Not bad taste but a bit too sweet. Medium body, lively carbonation, quite long finish with light bitterness. An average beer.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2008
A clear golden colored ber, with a foamy white head. An aroma of malt, herbs, flowery and caramel. The taste is sugar sweet, a bitter in the back. It has a medium body. There are some spices. It has a dry aftertaste. Itís not my taste.

renffisch (890) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2008
330ml bottle @ the rake. A novel idea, but thatís pretty much it. Overly unexciting and bland even though it tasted more of chestnuts than i would ever have expected. looked good though. Nice dark amber colour with small pearly corbonation and a creamy off-white head. shame it couldnít keep up taste-wise.
