Pours a cloudy dark amber, with a big, foamy, light brown head. Smells of dark caramel malt, chestnut, and a hint of soe funk as well. I really dug his flavor, thought it was quite interesting. Definitely got the big chestnut factor in it, as well as caramel malt, various other spices, and a hint of tartness, but not too much. Finished lightly sweet, with some candy sugar and caramel left on the tongue. i think this is an underrated brew, quite flavorful and interesting.

Alla spina ai Troeggi in Via Chiabrera, una birra alle castagne un po’ grezza e che non sapevo così alcolica; in effetti ora capisco come mai ci abbia dato quella mezza bottina.

Bomber, beautiful packaging. Aroma is big, and lush: malt, sweet chestnut, baker’s chocolate, and nutella. Mouthfeel is medium in fullness, with good creaminess and a lightly dry finish. Flavor bursts forward with chocolate and chestnut, perfect harmony. There is a depth of malt flavor achieved here that I find particularly special. Great beer overall.

Pours hazy mahogany with small beige head. The aroma is sweet caramel with a distinct nuttiness and a few acidic fruit notes. The flavor is, well, chestnut, with a caramel sweetness behind it.

Bottle, as pictured, pours an almost purple-mahogany with minimal head. Smells of vanilla, strawberries, raspberries. Almost has a barleywine feel to it, though it’s a bit thinner than that. I don’t really taste the chestnuts, not much nutty flavor in it at all. It’s very sweet.
