UPDATED: JAN 1, 2015 6.7% alle Castaneda on tap at il Serpente a dive bar if I ever saw one. Tip off, toilet with no seat! 5 euros a pour, it is an opaque Amber brown with a thick beige head. The nose is malty, earthy, caramel & fudge. Medium to light bodied with a round carbonation. The taste is freaky: green tobacco leaf followed by a bitter hop bite than gives you some sweet lemony citrus. Not my cup of tea at all... had this again at Bir&Fud where I heard it was made using chestnuts. There it was an amber/copper with a light beige head & a malty sweet liquid bread nose. The taste is bitter, a bit metallic with a dry finish plus some spice & nuts.

on tap at the weyermann birthday party. faintly hazed brown with a light purple tinge and a light brown head; aroma suggests chestnuts and hazelnuts; quite sticky, some alcohol showing, although there was no risk of the beer warming on this chilly night in the courtyard; a bit too woody for my tastes

UPDATED: DEC 9, 2014 At Bir&Fud in Rome on tap. Pours brown almost filtered, with a gassy head. Nose: flat. Mouth: a bit watery, tart, not good. I fear it went bad somehow. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

750ml Bottle - Amber with a small head. Chestnuts, raisins, walnuts and toffee in the aroma. Toffee, chestnuts, raisins, dried apricot and some slightly smoky notes can be detected in the taste. Pretty easy to drink and rather interesting.

Nutty aroma with notes of honey and nutmeg. Cloudy amber colour. Flavour of nuts, honey, and bread. Medium body with mild carbonation. Quite a tasty brew.

dfearnley (1257) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2014
Bottle to tulip Aromas of orange rind, bovril, pepper, and straw. Pours a sludgy brownish amber with a voluminous 3cm frothy off white head, that lasts a long time. Taste is orange, yeast, esters, bread, rye, and late bitterness. It’s interesting, but not quite up to snuff.

(Bottle) Golden amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, malty nose with orange peel, bread, chestnuts, hay and a touch of rye. Malty, fruity taste with notes of orange peel, rye bread, citrus, chestnuts, hints of strawberries, cherries and a balanced citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Well balanced and quite tasty. Nice one.

Vignale (2539) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 14, 2013
Flaska från SB som blivit stående alldele för länge. Mer än fem månader efter BBD. Skum sprutar ur flaskan, syrlig doft, ska den gå att dricka? Skummar rejält men bildar snart en snygg skumkrona över en disig orangebrun vätska. Syrlig doft av jäst, och bär men också honung, vanilj, trä och kastanjer. Speciell munkänsla, syrlig och lätt vaxig som en färsk kastanj. Bakom syrligheten finns en mak av omogna hasselnötter, kastanj, honung, bivax, fuktigt trä som dröjer sig kvar i eftersmaken och en lätt men växande beska. Det har givetvis hänt saker i ölet som inte är positiva, men ändå funkar det riktigt bra.
