COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We’ve blended robust caramel and crystal malts to give the brew deep brown amber hues, for an almost warming appearance. But it’s the roasted chestnuts that impart a unique and bold nutty character, complemented by a light level of hops, for a clean but crisp finish.

Bottle shared with northropfrye. Amazing aroma of roasted chestnuts and caramel. Unbelievable so so good best aroma ever. Taste is initially disappointing compared to the Aroma but then the caramel hits at the back. Excellent beer.

This was surprisingly good. Dark red copper aroma. Distinct chestnut, vanilla, cereal, and cherry aroma. Taste is a nice sweet cherry with a touch of cocoa. Enjoyable.

Translucent crimson/brown appearance with a mid sized head. Incredible sweet nutty caramel aroma. Wow. Utter gustatory bliss. Smooth and creamy texture coupled with a perfect amalgamation of nuts, roast, malt and caramel. Little to no hop. Magnificent easy drinking brown-like beer.

I liked this. Chestnuts and caramel all over the place. Aromas of toffee, nuts, vanilla, and sweet malts. Flavors are sweet caramel covered nuts. Yum.

Dark amber, white head. Smell is vanilla, chestnut and toffee. Taste is chestnuts and vanilla. Finishes astringent and bitter. Light, watery body. Not a fan.

A very sweet beer. Deep amber. Good white head. Pretty sweet but nutty enough to be taastey. Yes, that tasty has 2 a’s and an "e". Lots of sweet toffee. Tastee if you like candy.

Smell is strongly of vanilla. A bit one dimensional and slightly sweet with artificial nutty vanilla flavor dominating.

sulawang (627) - British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2013
pours chestnut brown, 1inch head, medium carbonation, and some good lacing. Lots and lots and lots (and lots) of caramelized roasted chestnuts on the nose. Somewhat thin at the start, but it finishes acceptably nutty and somewhat clean. Not exactly complex or deep, but has a very unique flavour profile. This would be cool in a cocktail…
