3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark brown with white head. Nose is caramel, toffee and dark fruits reminiscent of a Belgian dubbel. Taste is balanced caramel, nuts and some slight hints of clove. Noticeable warming alcoholic finish but very fitting to the beer. Full body with medium carbonation. Very nice beer but the chestnut is not a prominent ingredient.

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Hazy copper pour with a rather full off-white head. Lots of complex dark amber fruit. Hazelnuts. Fair amount of medium-blonde caramel notes. Some sour sparkle. Noticeable bite in the finish. Having an aged version. Cleverly better than it first seems.

Color ambrato carico con schiuma quasi inesistente. Al naso prevale il miele, ed una leggera presenza dell’aroma di castagna. In bocca si sente la componente alcolica, che domina, ma rimane molto godibile e per niente dolce. Non male.

Pizzeria Paradiso, Georgetown tap (sampler): Pours a light brownish color with a small head. Aroma is rather interesting, and for me, was difficult to pin down. There were definitely nuts, plenty of sugar, some unique yeast notes. It was like a Belgian Strong in some sense, but in others very cleary not. Some wood was also present. Taste is slightly sweet. Woody with plenty of fruit. Quite nice.

In short: Caramelized roasted nuts in a bottle. Decent beer
How: From a bottle at Mondial De La Bière 2012
The look: Clear copper body topped by a tiny beige ring of foam
In long: Nose is roasted nuts, a bit of caramel and some phenols. Taste is like drinking caramelized roasted nuts. Very crunchy/husky maltiness sensation. There is also a spiciness sensation. Some wooden notes. Carbonation is a lot of small hard bubbles that made it hard to keep it the mouth, I think this beer could be really nice with softer bubbles. My last beer at Mondial 2012 festival, I had so much to drink during this week of Mondial+pubs festivities that when the week was over I thought that maybe not drinking beer for a few days could do me some good, but I guess we’ll never know.

Poured a clear amber color with no visible bubble... still in fact. Aromas were sweet vanilla, winey, nutty and boozy. Taste was alot of the same rich mouthfeel with a bit cloying but a perfect dessert beer. Really getting the fortified madierized merlot barrel. Very complex not something id want a pint of but rather a small snifter after a light meal.
