Poors a beautiful golden/copper with a soft moderate white head. Strong hints of chocolate, caramel and chestnuts. Not too complex but very satisfying. Leaves a nice taste and te alcohol is just right.

ChainGangGuy (4486) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 30, 2007
Appearance: Pours a medium amber-brown body with a fizzy, off-white head. Smell: Caramel maltiness and sun-dried fruits with the scent of chestnuts tucked away in the background. Taste: Caramel malts and sugar-coated nuts. Fairly fruity. The chestnut character is present, but is never overbearing. Earthy bitterness. Finishes dry. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Moderate carbonation. Drinkability: How about that snazzy bottle, huh? Oh, the beer? Well, it’s okay.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 15, 2007
Pours a transparent copper orange with a thin, wispy-lacing off-white head. Aroma of doughy, lightly sweet toasty Belgian malt and some earthy spices and nuttiness. Body starts semi-sweet and effervescent with some chestnut flavor and mildly earthy hops toward a drier finish. A nicely balanced and unique chestnut flavored brew.

Hugh (161) - Zillebeke, BELGIUM - MAY 11, 2007
Bottle and label design looked so imposing I left it on the mantlepiece for six months until it went past its sell-by date. 3 months overdate, and the beer was as impressive as the packaging. Bronze,dark gold colour, packed with flavours. I couldn’t place the flavour but now seeing in the description, I can pick out the word ’castagne’ which explains a lot. An impeccable wealth of balanced flavours and aromas, I can only think this is a highly skilled brewer. The highlight of my week, and it’s been quite an entertaining week. Credit to Lorenzo for this one!
