Bottle. Pours a mahogany body with an off white head. Grape, and licorice flavor with a note of plum and a chewy nutty character. A hint spicy with toffee and grape. Really nice! duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2006
Bottle. A beer made with chestnuts, so naturally i found some nutty characters, in both aroma and flavour. Alcohol is fairly well noticed, and as dorquie mentions gives it a hint of liquer type qualities. Some subtle caramel, with a touch of woody dryness. Quite interesting. mar (5415) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2008

Bottle from GBBF 09. Hazy copper with a small head. Refined nutty caramel aroma. Sweet tastes that give way to nutty flavours, ending semi-sweet. Some spiciness. Not at all bad.

Bottle. Reddish brown beer with a light head. The aroma is fruity and mildly sour, and the flavour is yeasty, bitter and quite rich. Overall a reasonable beer, sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 10, 2010
(Bottled, 0.75l) Clear dark copper with a small, fading head. Nutty aroma of caramel and some alcohol, dried fruit. Flavor is caramely-nutty-malty with low bitterness and some dried fruitiness. Medium to full body, lowish carbonation. Nicely balanced and smooth brew, feels like an ale.
