JaKeAFC (1063) - - APR 15, 2012
33cl bottle, about 1.50, 6%.
Aspect: Amber, clear, with a nice fine offwhite head reducing to small lace.
Nose: quiet, nothing on spot.
Aroma: unclear malts, really bland dusty chestnuts, minerals, an iron note.
Taste: flat, no particular sweet\bitter combination.
Palate: watery, light bodied, soft carbonation, dusty finish.
Strange, unclean, somewhat muddy. Not nice but not terrible.

Bottle. Gold in colour. Roasty malts and caramel. Slight citrus fruit. Definite hint of nuts. Dry finish. OK, but I hoped for more chestnut. (2008)

Backlog. Synchronizing with notes and Untappd.
A bit of cardboard and honey. Some nut scents though the chestnut is not noticeable. Not bad but nothing to go back for - one time tasting

DomPiwa (85) - FRANCE - SEP 4, 2016
Pours a golden amber with slight lacy head. Faint floral nose. Interesting, discrete, taste due to the unique mixture of chestnut flour and barley malt. A slightly bitter and enjoyable finish.
