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.

Brandman (2835) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 2, 2014
Very special vegetable aroma. Flavour is bit dark and crispy. Bit over tuned maltiness with some strange flavour - castagne?

Pours a murky amber colour with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malts, caramel, chestnut, spices. Flavour is much the same, subtle sweetness. Overall a bit on the thin side, but I enjoyed my bottle. Speaking of bottles, I really appreciate the presentation this brewery has chosen for its beers.
