COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Birra di castagne, stagionale, ambrata, prodotta a bassa fermentazione (Alc. 8.% circa). Il sapore e l'aroma di castagne sono il tratto distintivo di questa birra originale. Si accompagna ai cibi mediamente saporiti della cucina autunno-invernale.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2006
Cloudy brown color, better head than the Melissa. The aroma shows some malt and a very light fruitness and hop. Medium body structure, with enough malt flavor; the chestnut flavor is subtle but clear, adding some complexity. A quite good Ale.

omhper (19238) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2006
[Bottled] Hazy amber, rich lively head. Fruity citric nose. Bready with notes of butterscotch and nuts. Medium sweet, very malty and somewhat syrupy. Dominated by a rye bread flavour that I believe is derived from the chestnuts. Just some late bitterness. Interesting!

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2006
Bottle. A beer made with chestnuts, so naturally i found some nutty characters, in both aroma and flavour. Alcohol is fairly well noticed, and as dorquie mentions gives it a hint of liquer type qualities. Some subtle caramel, with a touch of woody dryness. Quite interesting.

Dorqui (2095) - Brescia, ITALY - MAY 30, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Bottled 0,75L. Beer of chestnuts, not flavoured but produced with addition of true chestnuts. Much dark brown color with reddish glares. Fraught, dense and with optimal fizz. Bulky and dense nut head, medium resistance. Much decided and complex scent: resin, burned wood, chestnuts and dry leafs. Elevated alcoholic perception with liqueur notes. Much prickly and strongly impact taste. Extremely alcoholic and complex with warm notes of must and chestnuts under liqueur. Long, fraughted end, optimal persistence. Thanks to Nello for this one.
