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 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.

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.

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.

UPDATED: JAN 17, 2016 Aroma is sweet malts nuts and light sulphur. Taste is sweet basic malts, a well balanced nut presence that finishes smoothly with light bitterness. Lots of toffee and caramel. Appearance is a clear amber with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

Maple, nut, honey aroma. Black Amber pour with large toasted white foam. Very appealing sweet beer with a wheaty,nut taste. Delicous fot those that dont mind a sugary ale.

Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2011
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
