Thanks to Lukahn (Reddit) for this unique beer.
Pours a lighter bubbly fizzy head that hits about 1/2 a finger and fades at a med pace with some foamy lacing, over mostly hazy orange-red color.
Nose is interesting, some roasted chestnuts, toasted nuts, caramelized brown sugar, a light raw earthy green like nut aroma, toasted walnut like as well, light molasses and cola syrup, a weird herbal spice like aroma, a light payday like candy covered nuts, very unique.
Taste starts with a cola root like earthy flavor, a light tanginess with that. chewy nuts, earthy nuts, light toasted chestnut, little peanut like as well. More like earthy tangy root flavors. It has a bigger sweetness, with some caramelized brown sugar, molasses, candied walnuts, caramel, etc. A light bready yeasty flavor finishes it. Finish is a bit drier but still fairly sweet, a light ester like booze quality with a hint of a tingle, some sticky syrup, toasted and candied chestnuts, and light tangy flavor lingering.
Mouth is med bodied, little syrupy, decent carb.
Overall OK but not great. Very interesting and unique, but not a beer i could drink much of as it has a lot of weird flavors for a beer.
