Clear chestnut brown body, medium sized off-white head, spotty lacing. Caramel, toffee, nuts. Fairly straightforward, lightly sweet, malt-forward profile. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, muted finish.

On tap at Alla Spina in Philadelphia. Not my favorite from Victory. The chestnut flavor is muddled and dull. Not enough to make it interesting.

MrChopin (3276) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 24, 2013
hazy amber, puffy white ring for a head. Nose is candy sweetness, bubblegum, smarties, heavy sugar., lightly husky tea. Muted profile has light grain bitterness up front, tea and earth mid with grass and green noble hop finish. More bread and dough emerging in finish. Too thick and frothy, overall very blah

PhillyCraft (3221) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2013
On tap at Alla Spina with Pat, Sean, and Tom. Pours a hazy chestnut brown, with medium white head, good lacing, not retaining. Aromad and flavor of nuts, dark fruit, malt, hops, and a off putting rustiness in the finish. It was light copper. Sessionable if u can get past the light rust. Medium body.

Draft at the source. Clear golden color, small white edge head, solid lacing. Aroma of lightly toasted caramel. Taste is nutty with a roasty edge.

jredmond (5330) - Manhattan, New York, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Draft at Alla Spina. Pours an amber copper body with minor off white lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel and nut. Mouthfeel is crisp and clean with notes of sweet caramel malts and light spice character. Somewhat plain, but not bad at all.

On tap at Alla Spina with Tom, Sean, and Craig. Pours clean copper with a thin stream of bubbles lifting up in the center. Subtly off-white, creamy head. Aroma of lagery malts, chestnuts, subtle peanut-brittle, and a good dose of piney hop. Mouthfeel is clean and soft. Tastes hoppy for a brown ale, with a bit of lagery sweetness and some earthy savoriness from the chestnuts. Pretty refreshing for a winter seasonal.

On tap at Victory Brew Pub. Pours copper with white head. Nuts, biscuit, caramel. Low bitterness. Low/moderate sweetness. Smooth, full body. Alright.
