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.

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.

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.

Clear amber with a thin beige head. Nice nutty aroma and flavor but a bit too sweet.

cards04 (2630) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 11, 2014
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.

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

GothGargoyle (2319) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2011
Clear reddish amber. Aroma is caramel, chestnut. Light bodied. Quite sweet - almost sickly, with chestnut and toffee flavours. I consider this a novelty beer.

Lagerboy (1911) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2011
Deep clear copper with a foamy beige head which slowly disipates. Nose is caramel and toasty nutty malts. Lots of flavors here; caramel, some vanilla and coffee, toasted nuts, robust malt with some suttle underlying hoppiness. Softly carbed with a nice clean finish. Whistler Brewing is 2 for 2 with their session ales.

dfearnley (1773) - Edmonton, 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.

Reimer96 (1743) - 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.

gramity (1601) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
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.
