Pour is clear copper amber with a thin tan head...smell is lightly toasty and sweet caramel and day old bread crust with some strange smoky notes...taste is sweet and bright with caramel and malty notes with a subtle but tangible nutty flavor...if I didnt know, chestnut would not be my first guess....finish is rather bright and metallic....

bhensonb (13737) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 9, 2008
330 ml bottle. Fresh caramel aroma with some nutty aspects. Copper color with no head. Thin to medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is caramel with a strong woody flavor. Guess thats chestnut. The woodiness balances the sweetness rather well. Finish is rather dry, and the woodiness fills in for bitter. This is a strong flavor. Very different. Almost smoky.

Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 20, 2008
From Mejlby, Aarhus, DK Bottled Nice redbrown colour. Malty sweet and nutty - the chestnut probably gives it some dryness to balance

mmather (160) - 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 (12813) - 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.
