COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Weve blended robust caramel and crystal malts to give the brew deep brown amber hues, for an almost warming appearance. But its the roasted chestnuts that impart a unique and bold nutty character, complemented by a light level of hops, for a clean but crisp finish.

Pours dark reddish brown with a generous head. Chocolatey, nutty, and has a taste just as good as it smells. Very pleasant.

Clear copper amber pour. Small white head. Sweet syrpy aroma, caramel, maple, vanilla. Quite sweet taste with a moderate nitter finish. Flavour has more nuttiness but is still generally sweet malt. Syrupy body. A little thicker and Id pour it over pancakes or ice cream.

Bottle. Pours a clear brown with light head. Sweet chocolate, thin watery nut flavor and cardboard. Not offensive - just not much.

Nose is vanilla. Flavor is massive amounts of vanilla and some malt. East to drink. Finishes sweet. Had at the wizard express lift ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

If you want a unique tasting beer they certainly accomplished that. Unfortunately I dont like sweet beer and the chocalatty and caramel taste wasnt for me. It wasnt offensive but really not my style of ale.

Labeling and pour look great, but the beer itself is a bit of a flop. The taste is good but it doesnt feel like a natural taste; its like they just added caramel/toffee flavoring to it, tasty at first but not much thereafter. No length in its finish and forgettable when its swallowed. Lacking in aroma apart from the apparent toffee like taste which can be smelt.
