On tap at the Hilton rooftop in St. Louis. Waitress said it was an "amber", so a bit of a surprise there, but I'll try to review to the actual style. No head on the beer when it arrived, dark copper color without much in the way of bubbles. I was surprised off the bat by how sweet the beer was. Not overtly or cloyingly, but enough to seem out-of-place. Once my tongue adjusted to that, I found a medicinal, slightly metallic, flavor waiting for me which would last through the next 3/4 of the glass until I finally gave up on it. Felt a bit undercarbonated, and had an unpleasant aftertaste. It's possible this beer wasn't getting a fair presentation; I'd be pretty surprised if this bar does proper draft line maintenance; but I don't see myself rushing out to give this beer another try elsewhere.

500 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Clear deep orange. Nice off-white head. Contiguous wisps on the surface. Medium collar.
Smell - Very phenolic. Clove, banana, some hops. Definitely nutty.
Taste - Same phenolic character. Oppressive here. Sharp flavor. Strong yeastiness. Nuttiness is less pronounced.
Mouthfeel - A little harsh on the sharp yeastiness. Medium body.
Overall - Not a pleasant beer after a few sips.

Appropriately, pours a light chestnut color, only a pretty thin white head.
Aroma is much like a saison or a tripel--very yeasty, some mild spice, maybe faint nuttiness, not a whole lot going on. Fairly dry.
Taste is sweeter, nuts are more apparent but not super rich. Lots of yeast and spice again, also an odd metallic/iron like taste.
Mouthfeel is solid, good carbonation and a pretty full body.
Decent beer, hoped for more, definitely wish there were more nutty flavors.

Bottle from trade. Amber pour with thick white head. Smell is sweet, nutty. Taste is unique - that earthiness from the chestnuts, some roasted malt flavor, cotton candy sweetness, banana. Probably wouldnt' do this one again. Chestnuts + beer not my thing but can see how others might like it.
