[Bottled] Hazy amber, rich lively head. Fruity citric nose. Bready with notes of butterscotch and nuts. Medium sweet, very malty and somewhat syrupy. Dominated by a rye bread flavour that I believe is derived from the chestnuts. Just some late bitterness. Interesting! CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Pours a transparent copper orange with a thin, wispy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of doughy, lightly sweet toasty Belgian malt and some earthy spices and nuttiness. Body starts semi-sweet and effervescent with some chestnut flavor and mildly earthy hops toward a drier finish. A nicely balanced and unique chestnut flavored brew.

Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured clear brown color with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate toasted nutty malt aroma. Medium to full body, sticky texture and thin particles. Medium sweet spicy flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.

(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. RichardGretton (4770) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2010
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, beer_est_deus (1312) - örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2014
