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

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark red-brown colour with a thick tan head. Aromas of toffee malts, sweet spices, and chestnuts. Tastes of very sweet vanilla, chestnuts, and has a long toffee malt finish. Medium-light bodied, with minimal carbonation. A very nice seasonal ale, but definitely not sessional. A good one to share.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml bottle pours amber in color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Caramel is huge on the nose with this brew with some nutty notes as well. Taste is a bold caramel malty sweetness with some nutty undertones and a mild hop bitterness. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. A really nice brew that is just right for the upcoming season. Quite tasty and easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Single bottle purchased at a Liqour Store in Squamish, BC on 10/22/2011. Colour: Medium-Dark Brown with medium white head. Nose: Huge doses of chocolate covered cherry. Fresh cedar planks. Melted Butter... faint coffee. Taste: Medium-light sweet, light bitter, light sour. A sweetness that comes on strong but quickly vanishes. Cherry and nuts - but thank goodness there is very little evidence of chestnut - because I tried roasted chestnuts at a Christmas market in Germany once, and they were the most putrid thing I have ever eaten.
Interesting, if not quirky.

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.

Clear reddish amber. Aroma is caramel, chestnut. Light bodied. Quite sweet - almost sickly, with chestnut and toffee flavours. I consider this a novelty beer.

Draft @ Malones. Amber red chestnut auburn. Horribly artificial aroma like coffee syrup. This smells like something to pour over cake. Potentially delicious flavor in a dessert sense, but not in beer format. Flavor is sweet dessert syrup for ice cream and coffee. Not a real chestnut beer like the Italians can make.
