Copper penny color. Just a thin wisp of carbonation covers half of the top of this brew. Pretty good clarity. Aroma is definitely nutty and malty with a hint of banana esters. The front of the palate is very nutty and on the back end I get the banana flavor. Mouthfeel is pretty smooth and refreshing, but maybe a bit too thin.

Pours amber with a thumb cream colored head. Never really drop bright, great lacing & good head retention
S: Nutty notes, plus sulphur & pear
T: Nutty, pretty darn dry with hints of sulphur up front, a bit of brown bread as well. Faint pear & fig notes as this warms, dryness & some leafy hops as this warms. Finishes fruitty, dry, with a hint of sulphur & nuttyness, even some sour notes
MF: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation
Drinks okay, kind of middling as Brown ales go, you can taste the chestnuts to be sure. Was hoping for better on this one

One pint 0.7 oz. bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. A somewhat aggressive pour yielded a three-finger tan head that had decent retention and left bits of lacing along the glass. Due to the head, I was unable to get the entire bottle into the glass. The body is light brown with an orange hue and slightly cloudy.
The aroma is reminds me of a wheat based beer, like a witbier. Mostly spicy yeast notes up front with some hint of banana and a touch of lemon in the background.
The flavor is a very pleasant mix of the spicy yeast flavors and some other more fruity notes, especially the banana. The spicy notes are more evident in the flavor than I thought they would be, based on the aroma. The malt flavor is not pronounced, but adds a nice bready and nutty flavor to the mix.
Medium texture in the mouthfeel. Overall, a very solid brew. Glad it's available in bottles now.
