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.

leaparsons (9110) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2010
Bottle. Copper with a beige foam. Aromas are toffee malts with fruity ripe Autumn fruit. Nutty with some traces of vinegar. Flavours are spicy with sweet toffee malts. Pear and citrus fruitiness with a fair degree of yeast. Quite decent.

JoeMcPhee (9004) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 25, 2008
Generously shared at Ginger Man. Pale amber beer with no head. A lightly tart aroma over some soft light caramel. There is a prominent fruitiness as well. A bit of cherry. Flavour is lightly candyish with a lean and lightly estery note at the same time. A kiss of soft peach/apricot fruitiness over a light fruitiness. Just a hint of oakiness over the soft sweetness. It don’t taste like chestnuts, but it does taste good.

JorisPPattyn (8800) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2006
Red-amber beer with small transparant head. Toffee, caramel, plywood, and a few phenols in the nose. Leafy, shrubbery flavours, sweet and full bodied, obviously influenced by the chestnuts. Slick, nearly viscous, warming sensations. Good strong ale, chestnuts help without imposing themselves; a bit pity about the nose.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 16, 2012
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.

olio (8206) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2015
75 cl bottle @ Timo A. BBE 06/2016.
Pours clear dark amber color with a small head. Bready nutty aroma, some chestnut, mild berries, hops and dried fruits. Bitter malts on the flavor, some spice notes, yeast and bread. Decent, maybe a bit too sweet.

KyotoLefty (8141) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle from Taniguchi. Rich, malty nose like a doppelbock. Caramel, chocolate, nuts, raisins, and a bit of sherry or port. Very chewy. Reddish brown, lightly hazy, with a low lacy head. Rich malty flavor, nice tangy fruits, rich chocolate fudge, good bitter and tangy to balance. I really like this. Nice acidity with some citrus and light bitterness, but balances out well. Not sure if I get chestnuts per se, but it is a bit nutty. full but not heavy. Very nice stuff.

Skinnyviking (8077) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2008
Bottle. High creamy and lasting off-white head. Hazy dark red brown body. Good malty, caramel nut aroma. Relatively sweet flavor of caramel and nuts with just a bit of bitterness which is not staying for long though. Alcohol well hidden. Low carbonation.
