Elysian, Capitol Hill, Seattle. Clear copper orange, small foam. Sweet aroma. Very sweet, vegetal sip. Earthy spice. Not bad, a little cola or ginger ale. ippopotamo36 (2538) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 7, 2016
On tap at the source in Seattle-USA. Semi clear copper pour, off-white foam with lacing. Nose: perceivable baked chestnuts, nothing more. Mouth: watery, sweet syrup, clean somehow but not my cup of tea.

On tap. Pours a hazed medium brown color with a thin white collar and light lace. Aroma is soft, sweet malts with a mild nuttiness. Taste is very malt forward with toffee, sweet dough and lightly roasted nuts, with a mild pine undertone. Medium body with a moderate soft carbonation.

Dark brown in color, clear with a thin head. Nice nut and dark malt flavor. This was a nice light tasty brew. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 11, 2012
Draft at Churchkey. Deep, rich brown pour with a decently sized frothy white head. Nose holds nice soft nuttiness, with some bready malt and light plum and nectarine notes added in the flavor. A decent brown ale, but nothing special.

Draft. Clear maroon, thick tan head, solid lacing. Aroma of milk chocolate. Taste starts sweet then has s nice bitter balance with grass and light pine. Decent. Oakes (18851) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 15, 2012
Medium brown colour. Not much head. Mild aroma mixes nuts and caramel. Light bodied, a little toasty and a little nutty. Finishes reasonably dry. Decent brown ale, with no real chestnut character. (the ones in Europe don’t have it either). Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 12, 2012
Draft @ Elysian Fields. Nice rich true chestnut brown color. Very dark. Aroma is not huge, very mellow, cakey but not sweet. Thin and not super flavorful but a genuine chestnut beer! Well made. Nice rich cakey dark malts,excellent malt character. Better than many other chestnut beers as it’s nice and dry and balanced. And refreshing, too. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2009
draft at the elysian pike street. pours a cloudy dark brown...not, in fact, entirely unlike a chestnut. mild sweet brown sugar nose with earthy and nutty tones. watery light body. sweet sugar and nut mid palate. turns christmas tradition on its head, in a mild, dark, lagery way. riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Nose is very interesting per the style. Nutty, doughy, earthy with hints of chocolate and caramel as well. A touch of bread. Brown pour, muddy with a creamy head. The flavor is also somewhat doughy, earthy, nutty. Light smokey notes. Interesting earthy dustiness. High drinkability at around 4%.
