Opaque deep brown pour. Oaky foamy head. Chestnut aroma stands out. Full bodied nutty taste. Crisp finish. 60minuteman (1765) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2012
Pours a clear dark brown with tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, oak, nuts...which somewhat smells like perfume and/or incense to me. Flavor of nuts, oak, grass, and roasted malt. Thick thick thick Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2012
Dark brown pour with a thin, very light brown head. Strong Belgian yeast aroma, with plum and raisin notes, and a hint of nuttiness. Tastes much more like a typical brown ale than it smells. Sweet taste, some caramel and toffee notes. Some nice chestnut flavor follows through on the finish, with just a suggestion of spicy belgian yeast. Starts to taste roasty as it warms, almost approaching stout territory. Noticeable hop presence on the finish. Only a very slight bitterness, but there is a definite pine flavor. Pretty interesting and nuanced brew. I taste something different with each sip. Still, probably my least favorite of all the Exit beers so far. JaBier (8396) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 18, 2012

Bottle. Pours murky dark brown with tan/off white head. Nose/taste of almond and chestnut extracts, raisins, dark fruits, honey, sweet malt and caramel. Initially sweet dark fruits on the palate morph into a lightly roasted nut character in the finish. Some honey booze in back end. Medium body. johnnnniee (4457) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - APR 14, 2012
Pours a solid dark brown color with a smallish brown head that shows moderate retention. Smells of caramel, chocolate, a bit nutty with little to no hop presence. Taste is sweet and malty with a caramel earthy chocolate flavor to it. Medium body and carbonation level with a sweet almost sticky mouthfeel. Nice brown ale with a nutty edge. I’m glad I got to try this. Travlr (26406) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2012
Bottle. Extremely dark brown color, massive beige head with good retention and decent lacing. Aroma of chocolate covered hazelnuts. Taste is coffee grounds, chocolate milk powder, salt, nutmeg. Nice. garrisonp (10) - Brighton, Massachusetts, USA - APR 12, 2012
Nice brown ale with nice nutty notes. Could have used some more of that honey. Easy drinking. Bubbly off white head laces nicely. Dark brown, almost black. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2012
750 bottle. Pours turbid (wait for it) chestnut, with 1-finger tan head. Nose is roasted malt, dark fruit, nuts, mild hops. Tastes rich, smooth, with an up-front funky dark malty fruity flavor, and back-up nuts, brown sugar, and hops. This one is solid.
