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 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

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

Popped the cap; immediate smell of sweet chestnuts, chocolate. I like that in a beer. Into a tulip; pours a nice dark amber with half a finger of brownish-white head. Looks to be quite effervescent; plenty of activity in the beer itself. Aroma is superb; sweet and nutty, some chocolate that reminds me a bit of nutella, coffee on the back end. Flavour echoes the aroma, plenty of chestnut in there, coffee and chocolate take a back seat. Quite good, but there is a flaw; I get a metallic aftertaste on the finish that puts a damper on how enjoyable it is. Worth trying out, though.

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.

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.

cmacklin (513) - 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.

On tap at Hops in New Westminster. Poured in signature sleeve for measure and re-poured into a medium snifter for aroma. The color is beautiful; a dark reddish amber. A decent beige head, but not very long lasting. Sweet caramel on the nose. Caramel and vanilla on the tongue. Any hops or chestnut are overwhelmed by the caramel and vanilla. Okay for the fall season, but lacks complexity.

kidmartinek (4046) - austin, Texas, USA - FEB 26, 2014
A very sweet beer. Deep amber. Good white head. Pretty sweet but nutty enough to be taastey. Yes, that tasty has 2 a’s and an "e". Lots of sweet toffee. Tastee if you like candy.

Ferris (8949) - 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.

exeter (482) - 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.
