BuckeyeBoy (5501) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 27, 2015
From a really sexy bottle pours out chestnut color topped with small head. Nose is really nutty sweetness and a nice malt bill. Taste is nutty aswell with a good mellow malt bill. Glad I got to try this one.

ippopotamo36 (1556) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 21, 2014
0,75 bottle purchased in Rome and consumed in Serbia. Pours honey color, cloudy with a minimal gassy off white head. Nose: under fermentation must (yeast), sour notes, hidden chestnuts. Mouth: sour feeling but lack of character. Forgettable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (1852) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 30, 2014
On tap @ Mad For Beer (Rome). Bellissimo color ambrato carico, quasi miele di castagno, abbastanza limpida, schiuma media, non molto persistente. Al naso sentori di malto, caramello, marzapane, frutta secca. In bocca è delicata, dolciastra ma mai stucchevole, anche ben equilibrata. Corpo leggero, carbonazione bassa. Autunnale, senza pretese, ma davvero ben fatta.

__Rb81 (613) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle at home (batch LS170/11, best before 11/2013, shared). Pours hazy dark amber with a off-white head. Aroma of moldy wood, wet forest, bit of malty caramel. Taste is bitter sweet, slight malty caramel sweetness, hint of solvent like esters in the end, no trace anymore of (chest)nuts if there were any to begin with. Okay, but would like to taste this fresh.

Travlr (20337) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Draft at 2 Amy’s. Beautiful clear ruby maroon color, fluffy white head. Aroma of toasted nuts, port wine. Taste is fruity, nutty and sweet. One of the lease offensive chestnut beers I’ve had.
Earlier Rating: 1/1/2011 Total Score: 3.1
Draft at Churchkey. Hazy amber color, scant head. Aroma of caramel, subtle nut. Pretty plain caramel taste, very sweet. Sono d’accordo con Lorenzo, it needs moore complexity.
