DScanlon (70) - Florida, USA - DEC 17, 2009
This is the only Grado Plato since I first tried chocarrubica around Thanksgiving time. Poured, or rather exploded out of the bottle with a thick head that stayed only shortly, revealing a very nice dark amber colored brew. Subtle yet pleasent aroma, ever so slight alcohol smell because of the 8% abv. Nice heavy malt flavor, very nutty from the chestnuts but also has somewhat of a roasted/slightly burnt hazelnut taste as well. Very good, I’d definitely pick this up again.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 10, 2009
Pours a dark chestnut brown color with some dark amber chocolate brown hues when held to a light source with a thick 2 finger frothy tan head with good retention that slowly settles into a lasting cap. Sporadic spots of soapy lacing. Spicy peppery aroma with some estery Belgian yeast notes that give off a lot of dark fruit. Hints of raisin, grape, plum and fig with a bit of nutty malt and alcohol. Very quaffable medium body with lots of spice, dark fruit notes and smooth malt character. Hints of dark cherry, grape, plum, raisin and fig along with some peppery spice, chocolate malt and hazelnut. The sweetness of the dark fruit and the smooth maltiness are very well balanced and the ABV is very well masked without a trace of alcohol heat. Very complex and quaffable.

Slipstream (1976) - USA - SEP 8, 2009
I have tried Moretti and Peroni, but this is my first Italian craft brew. At US$ 16, it may be the most expensive half liter of beer I have ever purchased. It comes in a nice swingtop bottle with an attractive European label. Medium brown pour with a decent head. Good aroma of sweet malt with herbal notes and a dash of yeast. SSF is fairly peppy and flavorful. It has a prickly mouthfeel and an exciting aftertaste that is both clean and warm. Solid malt base and interesting hops, with chestnuts having a subtle impact and adding something unique to the flavor. This is overpriced, but it is a fine brew that is worth a try, and deserves a higher rating.

Bottle. Pours a mahogany body with an off white head. Grape, and licorice flavor with a note of plum and a chewy nutty character. A hint spicy with toffee and grape. Really nice!

thebeertourist (4755) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2009
Bottle from GBBF 09. Hazy copper with a small head. Refined nutty caramel aroma. Sweet tastes that give way to nutty flavours, ending semi-sweet. Some spiciness. Not at all bad.

shigadeyo (2973) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - JUL 28, 2009

Late June/Early July 2008: Strada S. Felice has a stong, fragrant chesnut aroma that also has a sour, fruity alt edge to it. The beer is the color of honey as is the foamy head that slowly dissipates. There is some sediment in the beer as well. It tastes toasty and nutty. There is also tart fruitiness in the flavor. This beer is stong and malty with a balanced bitterness and a slightly dry finish. It has a medium body and is smooth despite the high amount of carbonation. This beer isn’t too bad; I like the uniqueness of the chesnuts.

1 pint 9.4 fl. oz. flip-top bottle (8% Alc/Vol) shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #55 for this beer.
