750 ml bottle. Sweet nutty aroma with caramel malts with just a hint of spice. Pours amber with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Caramel upfront with sweet malts and a nuttiness and a very mild spiciness and very dry finish. In the beginning it drinks like an ale but the finish reminds of a lager.

Translucent brown/yellow with an average sized bubbly white head. Aroma is very bready and heavy. Notes of cookies, toasted malts, cereal grains, and some sweet caramel. Flavor is chewy - toasted dough, nuts, and some light fruits in the finish. JDBaker11058 (2206) - Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Appearance: clear bronze with a one-finger light tan head; some lacing. Aroma: malty and sweet, with caramel and toasted nuts. Taste: toasty, nutty, malty and sweet; lots of grains, with minimal hops. Finish: clean, crisp, sweet, and a little powdery. Notes: Disclaimer: I love a good lager, so I found it very enjoyable. I felt the chestnut flour did impart a little extra nuttiness to the flavor, and some of that dry, slightly talc-like complexion to the palate. Very nice. Ratebeer indicates it’s retired, but I just got this bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

Bottle, 75cL. Home. With dad. Traded with @Jaghana. Merci! A dark brown beer with light hues at the bottom of my glass ; medium beige head ; medium retention ; average lacing. Roasty caramel aroma, light spicy, fruity, herbs. Medium sweet. Medium body, thin texture, average carbonation, sweet lasting finish. Overall, OK drinkable christmas beer ; thin ; nothing foolish. jrodooo5 (1672) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Pours chestnut brown w/ a tan head that leaves a ring of lacing. The aroma is kind of sweet & malfy. The taste is malfy & relatively clean. It has a decent mouthfeel & does a good job of hiding the 7%. Overall it’s a nice brew but nothing to write home about!

Bottle. Sweet, tasty and subtle. Doesn’t have much of an aroma. Went down easily. italarican (1550) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Tap at Gingerman. Pours a clear auburn with standard white head. Aroma is primarily toasted sesame seeds and cereal. Buttery flavor, almost popcorn-like, with notes of toast, simcoe, and roasted malt. I keep going back to "toasty." A touch too buttery. EricE (1367) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 12, 2011
Clear orange brown pour with a light tan head. Nutty aroma with a bit of coffee. Slightly funky. Dry cereal flavor, just a touch of sweetness. A little nutty with a hint of caramel. Dry finish. Not bad. Bricks (1126) - Delaware, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Super dark amber with great head. Aroma is super sweet cherry-ish hay malt. Tastes like a Bohemian Pilsener with some cherry sweetness. Very smooth. podey (638) - New York, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2013
Draught at Le Bateau Ivre in NYC. Pours amber with medium white. aroma and taste have notes of hoppiness. A nice interpretation of the style,
