Reddish copper, foaming fizzy head. Aroma is restrained but hints at nuts and caramel. Maybe a little spicy gingerbread or candied citrus? Flavor is light and bready with a hint of rye and a little alcohol burn at the finish, which is kinda rough and maybe even a tad fuselly. blutt59 (6576) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2008

The aroma does have nuts and plenty of malt, but the touch of sourness really hurts the aroma. The appearance is nice its cloudy amber with a large head. The taste is like the aroma and hurt by the sour taste. The mouth feel is smooth. Overall it has some good qualities but I don’t really like it that much. cgarvieuk (25744) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 22, 2008
Bottle at home ... The chestnuts make this sound interesting ... so lets go and see ... First off the its a nice red copper colour ... big short lived loose foam head ... odd watery yeasty possible hint of chestnut nose ... woody nutty ... theres definite heavy chestnut tones ... quite a lot of toffee malt ... medium body thats a bt overcarbonated ... the chestnut lingers long but is a bit bitter ... ITs ok, quite a full flavour ... but its not gonna win any prizes from me, though its drinkable enough daniele (9573) - ITALY - OCT 12, 2008

Brown decent sized white head. Spicy, sweet aroma. Flavor is...odd.Sugary sweet, and a lot of cola, maybe? The Bride said it tasted like grape cough medicine, but I didn’t really get that. Maybe some apple, though. Odd brew. DonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 18, 2008
Bottle at GBBF The Cad was totally aff the party by this time. Alround rating: A pritty heavily malty beer, sweet and not much else going on.
