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

If you want a unique tasting beer they certainly accomplished that. Unfortunately I donít like sweet beer and the chocalatty and caramel taste wasnít for me. It wasnít offensive but really not my style of ale.

Labeling and pour look great, but the beer itself is a bit of a flop. The taste is good but it doesnít feel like a natural taste; itís like they just added caramel/toffee flavoring to it, tasty at first but not much thereafter. No length in itís finish and forgettable when itís swallowed. Lacking in aroma apart from the apparent toffee like taste which can be smelt.

Amber body with a foamy white head. Aroma is sweet with sting nut and caramel notes. Taste matches aroma perfectly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maple, nut, honey aroma. Black Amber pour with large toasted white foam. Very appealing sweet beer with a wheaty,nut taste. Delicous fot those that dont mind a sugary ale.

cmacklin (814) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - APR 12, 2015
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear, red amber with an average, beige head that laces. Sweet and artificial aroma of vanilla, nuts and caramel. Syrupy sweet and artificial flavour of vanilla, nuts, caramel and roasted malt with a mildly bitter finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Novelty or gimmick beer. Too sweet and syrupy for me.

AgentAle (1493) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2016 Aroma is sweet malts nuts and light sulphur. Taste is sweet basic malts, a well balanced nut presence that finishes smoothly with light bitterness. Lots of toffee and caramel. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.
