2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a medium brown color with small head. Despite the lack of head aroma is plentiful and sweet with lots of caramel coming through. Taste is a nice malt with a hint of chestnut coming through along with some hard to place spices. Finishes hoppy. This is a great autumn beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
