On tap at Hops in New Westminster. Poured in signature sleeve for measure and re-poured into a medium snifter for aroma. The color is beautiful; a dark reddish amber. A decent beige head, but not very long lasting. Sweet caramel on the nose. Caramel and vanilla on the tongue. Any hops or chestnut are overwhelmed by the caramel and vanilla. Okay for the fall season, but lacks complexity.
Most of a 650 ml bottle poured at home (it froze). Gift from a colleague. Smells like chestnuts and chocolate. Tastes sweet, like a caramilk bar with a nutty finish. Too sweet for me.

650ml bottle. Sweet chestnut and toffee aroma. Pours with a dark amber/brown hue and a small close to white head. Sweet malt flavour with chestnut and toffee notes. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Sweet finish with a touch of bitterness. MissAnthropic (68) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 14, 2017
While this doesn’t have any of the characteristics of a dynamic, expertly crafted brew, it’s tasty, easy drinking on a chilly spring day. Sweet and sticky and fun. BeerDoctor28 (3) - - MAR 1, 2017 does not count
Sorry, just didn’t like this beer. I found the chestnut flavoring offputting jiri_s (2) - British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2017 does not count
it’s like drinking chestnuts with a squeeze of lemon on it. it’s not working.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2017 Pours an amber color. Aroma is really nice with caramel vanilla and some syrup. Taste is rather sweet with some nuts. RhetoricalAns (973) - Red Deer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 25, 2016
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 I’d pour it over pancakes or ice cream. Gerbeer (4149) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear brown with light head. Sweet chocolate, thin watery nut flavor and cardboard. Not offensive - just not much. Christpuncher (3215) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 13, 2016
Nose is vanilla. Flavor is massive amounts of vanilla and some malt. East to drink. Finishes sweet. Had at the wizard express lift

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