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.

pintbypint (2591) - Edmonton, Alberta, - JAN 11, 2013
650ml brown bottle. Dark amber pour, clear. Small white head. Nose is quite sweet, lots of toffee/caramel. Taste is pretty straightforward with sweet brown sugar, caramel and toffee, syrupy. Some grassy notes at the end and some light bitterness. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Too sweet and artificial tasting. Tough to get through even half of the bomber.

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 (613) - 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…

Aroma of chestnuts, caramel and vanilla in this wry Christmassy beer. The appearance is average with a hazy brown look though there's a good head and great lacing. The taste is kinda absent. A bit of the caramel and chestnuts make it through but it is by no means marginal. Creamy ale with a bit happening. Nothing wow about it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dfearnley (932) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 6, 2013
Bottle to pint glass Nutmeg, chestnut, malt, maple, brown sugar aromas. Copper colour with a thin bubbly tan head. Taste is a little sweet and malty but I don't get much else. Mouthfeel is watery.

UberSuper (2) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 7, 2013 does not count
Poured from a 650ml bottle into a pint glass. Deep amber body and a very thin slightly off-white head. A strong fake caramel/toffee flavor is abundant, like the stuff they squirt in your coffee at Starbucks. There’s a bit of nuttiness and roasted malts coming through. Taste is the same strong sweet fake caramel flavor with a quick, sort of watery finish. The mouthfeel is nice and creamy with good smooth carbonation. Overall I was disappointed to find it too sweet and very fake tasting. A bit of artificial flavoring would be ok but there’s too much of it to get past.
