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 (2707) - 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.

Reimer96 (1342) - Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
Pours a clear medium brown with a small tan head. Aroma of vanilla, nut, caramel and toffee. Taste is sweet vanilla mixed with chestnut and light butterscotch. Overall it’s balanced well but a bit too much artificial vanilla.

exeter (362) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 5, 2014
Pours a dark clear brown. Micro-head but no lacing. Smells of butterscotch and and maybe some chestnuts. Taste is pretty much the same as the smell, nothing to complex here. Too sweet and the body is weak.

Ferris (5005) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 13, 2014
Draft - Crazy sweet hazelnuts and vanilla. Smells artificially sweetened and flavored. Clear copper with a decent head. Tastes the same. Good if you don’t like beer.

ljthiessen (517) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy amber-brown pour with a thin, soapy beige head. I’m kind of torn with this beer... Huge chestnut and sweet caramel aroma, honey, milk chocolate notes, almost sickly sweet, but very intriguing. Flavour is sweet and malty, chestnut and caramel, a touch of chocolate. Some really delicious flavours, but tastes pretty artificial.

mcberko (7244) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 31, 2014
On tap at Tap & Barrel Coal Harbour, pours a hazy dark amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out loads of chestnuts and hazelnuts - smells rather artificial though. Flavour is the same, with syrupy hazelnuts. Doesn’t taste like a beer, just a syrupy alcoholized carbonated beverage of some sort. Gimmick "beer" for non-beer lovers.

dreamflower (600) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
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.

northropfrye (2316) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 17, 2014
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.

YigSvartka (107) - Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
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.

RCx240 (87) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 25, 2014
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.
