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.

A- murky brown with red and orange hues. A light, white head that doesn't stick around long.
S- huge malt and chestnut aroma. Big time nutty aroma lets me know exactly what is in store. Tree bark and other earthy notes make their way.
T- a fun and interesting blend of Euro malts and hops with the chestnut addition. Willamette hops really pave a nice balance with the intense nut character. Different, yet delicious.
M- A bit on the light side for the style, but honestly, it makes it doesn't abide by any particular style. Smoothness helps the drinkability. Would make for a nice beer to have a few rounds of at the local pub.
O- my first from this brewery, and i have to say that I am impressed. Not normally a style that I seek out, but most definitely enjoyed and would have again. Probably the strongest nut character I have had, but they found a way to really make it work.

On-tap at a craft/local-oriented beer bar in the St. Louis airport. Not really sure at the time of tasting what the beer was. Tasted 28 September 2013, reviewed from notes.
Pours medium amber, a little bit of orange and gold. Brought with 1.5 fingers of off-white yellowish head. Excellent lacing.
Smell is nutty, a little dry, a bit woody. See taste, as it's very similar.
Taste is similar. Both the smell and the taste are super nutty. Rich, lightly toasted nuts. Kinda grainy and unobtrusive behind that. Has a character that I'm having a hard time putting a name on. Almost like a lagery crispness.
Medium-light body, good carbonation, sort of prickly, varied, and pleasant. Carbonation is stable throughout.
Like an amber ale with nuts; and I mean a lot of nuts. Tasty and rather unique - I mean, I've had some beers with "nut" in the name, but none of them compare to this nutty one. Feels slightly light, in color and body, for this kind of beer, but not in the flavor; reminds me of a black IPA in that way. Heavily nutty in a really nice way.

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.
