rodenbach99 (3259) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2011
Bouteille de forme élégante de 750ml. La bière est ambrée, la mousse est beige, elle est compacte et passablement durable. Le nez est au effluve de noix, châtaignes (pas celles d’eau !) la levure est bien présente et une touche de caramel. La bière est mince en bouche, liquide et légère. Un petit goût de châtaigne n’est pas désagréable, la levure est passablement présente. La moitié de ce précieux (cher) liquide a terminé dans les saucisses maisons que nous faisions. Elles sont succulentes.

Boutip (4862) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2011
Bottle: Poured a clear amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of honey and caramel malt with light roasted chestnut. Taste is also dominated by a complex mix between some chestnut and some honey with a nice malt caramelized backbone. Body is about average with nice creamy texture with great carbonation. Very well brewed with amazing level of complexity and great drinkability factor.

flavio_b (277) - ROME, ITALY - JAN 6, 2011
Caramel and malt flavour, I found it very good in taste especially for the chestnuts taste which is very noticeable. One of the best chestnuts based beer I’ve ever tried. Brown and tiny white head, and very pleasant in the final. My overall opinion is absolutely positive. I like this beer very much.

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 16, 2010
This is said to be the typical italian style of beer. I think this beer should have more complexity, too much sweet imho.

thebeertourist (4901) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2010
Bottle from Beers of Europe. Hazy amber with some sediment. Potent fruity and chestnut aroma and flavours. On the sweet side, but still quite well-balanced. Interesting.

johndoughty (4077) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2010
Bottle. Orange and flat. No carbonation and no lacing.Slightly cloudy with some fruitiness which lingers. Not bad but not one of my favourites from this brewery.
