chriso (7396) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2010
Cask (gravity dispense) at Pigs Ear Beer Festival, 3 December 2009. It is chestnut in colour. There is a hefty whiff of diacetyl on the nose, leading in to a creamy toffee character. Soft and a bit sweet. Not enough hops to provide balance and bite. Didn’t do too much for me although I couldn’t say it was unpalatable. .

harrisoni (13856) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 28, 2009
Cask gravity at Pig’s Ear BF 09. Chestnut colour, no head. Toffee diacetyl aroma. Not great due to the butteryness, but at least the malts make it more toffeeish.

KnutAlbert (6143) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 8, 2009
Gravity cask, Pig’s Ear 09. Quite sweet and malty, and there is nothing in here that reminds me of chestnuts. Lacks some proper hops. Boring bitter, they can do much better.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 11, 2009
A Mes rate. Gravicask at Chelmsford Winter Beer Festival. Mid orange brown with a thin off white head and reasonable condition. Caramel malt with some definite chestnut and a pleasant burnt malt finish. Reminds me a lot of burnt cheddar actually. Pretty tasty stuff.
