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.

Pours dark reddish brown with a generous head. Chocolatey, nutty, and has a taste just as good as it smells. Very pleasant.

cmacklin (344) - 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 (945) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 22, 2015
Aroma is sweet malts nuts and light sulphur. Taste is sweet basic malts, a well balanced nut presence that finishes smoothly with light bitterness. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

GuideDogSaint (678) - Xiamen, CHINA - JAN 16, 2015
330ml bottle from Tap 66, Xiamen. Pours dark brown with a dissipating off white head. Aroma of nuts, toffee, chocolate and vanilla. Bitter sweet finish.

gramity (1530) - 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.

Reimer96 (1446) - 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 (440) - 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 (6783) - 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 (617) - 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 (8421) - 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 (635) - 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.
