3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Notes from my iPhone. On tap @ Purple Pig. Slightly hazy golden amber with a very wispy fine head. Aroma is of sweet cereal, lightly spicy, and with more of a buckwheat aroma than anything nutty. Creamy soft mouthfeel, flavours of dates, light spice, vague fruit (quince maybe?). Again, nothing distinctly nutty, but a pleasant ale nonetheless.

Tap at Blind Tiger. Reddish brown with a small white head. Nose is fruity and nutty, some spice (nutmeg?), cranberry, wood. Flavor is sweeter than the nose suggests, maple syrup, cinnamon, toasty malts. Medium bodied, a little sticky on the tongue.

Dolce, la castagna non si sente, in bocca è pesante e si beve a fatica,anche la schiuma non è il massimo.

Un assaggio ai Troeggi, sarà che a me queste birre alle castagne non convincono, ma non mi è piaciuta

Draught at Churchkey. Walnut colored pour. Nose and flavor are marked with present but uninteresting chestnut, sweet spice, caramel, and plum-like dark fruit. Not bad, but ehhh not exciting.
