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.

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.

Powertrip (999) - 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

Reimer96 (1427) - 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.

AgentAle (919) - 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.

JHunter (676) - British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 20, 2011
Pours a medium copper / brown colour with a off white head. Aroma is super strong vanilla stands out the most for me then caramel and a hint of nuts. Taste is super super sweet and rich with a nice nuttiness. Good beer to keep warm wit on a cold fall day. I would suggest sharing a 650ml bottle as by the time i was finished i was a bit much

GothGargoyle (1536) - 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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2011
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.
