MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 27, 2011
transparent light brown ale, large bubbles white ring. Really jammy, nutty nose, stinky earth. Really sweet flavor, bit barky and dry. Lightly carbonated, pretty sweet, like the bitter balance but overall not enough.

Draft @ Delirium, Brussels. Bière qui n’a de Noël que son nom. Cuivrée, au col blanc épais. Arôme garde la signature de cette brasserie dans l’usage de la châtaigne. Le tout sur un malt grillé léger, pointe de levure, houblon en retrait et qui ajoute peu au bouquet. Bière rappeuse au palais laissant ce profile de châtaigne concassées/poudreuse. Cela tend à donner une pointe épicée à la bière. Autrement, je ne vois rien de bien festif, je dirai une bonne voire meilleure version que la blonde et la blanche avec plus de malt. En se réchauffant, malt grillé revient au devant avec la châtaigne, mais on y note aussi un malt type carapils.

Drought. Brown with reddish tint, small foamy beige head, doughy aroma, fizzy, fruity semi-sweet taste with a bitter coffee ending.

jaghana (5600) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle 75cl, a clear amber beer with medium head. Nose is nutty and on toasted grain. Aroma is on toasted grains and cereals, very sweet, light spices, not that complex, nice malty side, low hops, a bit too sweet to be really drinkable, ok beer.

italarican (1543) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, 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.

nearbeer (4990) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 22, 2011
750 ml. Clear brew, with a tidy little cover of creamy bubbles and the right look for a darkish lager. Nose is earthy cereal and dry grass, with a honey-medicinal note. Flavor is similar, with bittersweet nutmeat on the finish. Mouthfeel is airy-light and mostly smooth. Light-medium body is to the dry side. Odd tasting brew, but develops a nice aftertaste after a bit.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 6, 2014
750ml bottle - A little bit pricey, but when looking at this beer from top to bottom it’s pretty tasty. The focus is centered on the malts, which is fine and what’s produced is a caramel and toasted malts. It’s probably even a little plain, but there’s no flaws noticeable and I’m sure a little bit fresher this might be really good. Now, it’s serviceable albeit overpriced.

jcr (2584) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JAN 29, 2011
750 ml. Deep, clear amber body. Fizzy, off-white head. Malty aroma of toasted grain, nuts and hints of caramel, spice, earthiness, wood along with some vegetal notes. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. The taste on the front of the tongue is earthy and husky. the finish leaves tastes of wood, caramel, raw grain. Plenty of bitterness, but the malts are dominant throughout.

VDuquerroux (1327) - Airvault, FRANCE - FEB 28, 2015
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.
