This tawny amber, semi-opaque ale brewed with chestnuts pours with a thick head of fine, off-white suds. Lace is lovely and delicate.
Aroma is uniquely roasty and nutty. Kinda sweet, even, but very appealing and enticing.
Flavor profile is pleasing to the palate and well-nuanced. I get a hint of malty and lightly toasty nuts (chestnut?) and a wisp of light citrus hops at the finish. I drank this one almost room temperature, and it was a delicious and worthwhile experience. Very good!

Pours a hazed slighty orange tinted hazlenut brown, little to no head, only some off-white rings on the outer edges. Mild nose with faint roasted nuts, light caramel and a somewhat baked dessert profile - brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg. Taste adds a splash of floral and herbal qualities, but the main notes are still the lightly toasted nuts, light caramel and nougat like sweetness. Lighter side of medium bodied, lightly watery and under-carbonated. Some positive notes, but washed out by the thin body and weak scent and flavor profile.

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.

Tried this beer due to the recommendation made by the beer store clerk, and poured this into a standard half liter German dimple glass. The brew makes a solid three finger thick foam crown of a mild khaki/off white color, and the body is hazy, translucent, and caramel in color.
The aroma is sweet in the way of toffee and butter, kind of earthy and veggie, with a mild metallic quality.
Taste wise this is very nutty, earthy, somewhat dark fruit and yeasty esters with a tinge of caramel.
Feels medium in body, a little carbonated but not too much, and wetting to the palate.

Poured into a pint glass from a pint sized bottle.
Pours a really nice hazy slightly orange amber color with some golden hues. A nice foamy off-white ehad pops up to about 0.5 inch. It recedes at a moderate pace.
Aroma strats off with toasty bready malt notes, followed by some nice slight grassy and herbal hop backed notes. Then more bread notes and some earthy grain mixed in with some nuttiness. There is also some nice slight phenolic notes with some cloves and some spice.
Flavor starts off more grassy and refreshing. Clean toasty malt notes follow with some good grain components. The hop notes play really well in the background with some herbal and slightly citrusy components. There is also a bready and slightly sweet notes with some nice nutty notes and some yeasty sweetness. Mouthfeel is nice and crisp with good carbonation and a nice refreshing mix of malt, nuts and hops.
This is one of my favorite UCBC brews. Very flavorful and easy to drink. Nice hop notes mixed with great malt notes and an interesting infusion of chestnuts.

Served this beer on tap, at the brewery, in a pint glass. Poured a amber orange color, produced an average white head, excellent retention and lacing. The aroma of this spiced beer consisted of sweet malted grain, and some spice- nutmeg perhaps? Medium in body, this ale had a backbone of sweet malted grain and some spicy nutmeg. Brewed with chestnuts, however I can't really detect much of a nutty flavor. Finishes with a citric hop flair. Overall, great session beer- Unique- something I would order again. Prost!
