75 cl bottle from Meny CC Vest. Batch 170/11 Pours hazy dark amber, with a medium light brown head that leaves some laceing. Aroma fruits, herbes and sweet notes. Taste of fruits, lightly spiced, with some nutty notes as well. Low sweetness, light bitterness, medium body. Smooth and clean mouthfeel. Good one

(Birra del Borgo CastagnAle (Castanha)) Tap at Borefts. Amber colour on the body, clear, with a small off-white head on top, thin, with average retention. Faint aroma, I couldn’t get much, except for some malts. Not much on the taste either, a bit bland with only hints of chestnuts, malts, leaves. Medium thin body, soft carbonation. Okay beer, maybe worth of a re-rate to be honest.

Lonick (1495) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 28, 2016
Keg @Borefts 2016. Pours amber. Nose is citrus and then i got a big marzipan hit. Taste is a touch sweet a touch nutty, then the more you drink the more citrus comes through and then toffee. By the end of the glass 140ml all i could taste was chestnuts. Its odd not bad just odd.

SinH4 (3175) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 24, 2016
Tap. Clear copper color with tan ring. Aroma is malty, honey, some bottom-fermenting cellar aromas, a bit metallic. Taste is fruchtgummi, malty, slightly oxidized (in the good way), chestnut, yes, if you tell me so. Nice and rather balanced Bock!

Erzengel (7888) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle bought on a market in Rome. Dunkelbraune Kastanienfarbe, malzig-würziger Geruch. Im Antrunk malzig-nussig, vollmundig-interessant. Diese nussige Note setzt sich im Hauptteil fort, deutlich malzig mit leicht süßlichen Maronen-Anklängen. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine ganz interessante leicht kastanien-malzige Note zurück, minimal herb. Spannend!

Sigmund (6745) - Tau, NORWAY - MAR 13, 2016
750 ml bottle, as Birra del Borgo CastagnAle, probably from Matkroken Stokka. BBE 12/2014. ABV is 4.2%. Beautiful reddish colour, unfortunately spoiled by loads of floaties that don’t dissolve in the beer. Moderate off-white head. Aroma of malts, chestnuts and over-ripe fruits, hints of solvent. Slightly sweet flavour, with the same elements as in the aroma. Might be somewhat better fresh, but probably not my cup of tea under any circumstance.

romolime (159) - - FEB 1, 2016
Birra dal colore ambrato scuro, è prevalente il sapore della castagna, forse troppo..può risultare un pò stucchevole
