The aroma does have nuts and plenty of malt, but the touch of sourness really hurts the aroma. The appearance is nice its cloudy amber with a large head. The taste is like the aroma and hurt by the sour taste. The mouth feel is smooth. Overall it has some good qualities but I don’t really like it that much.

TURDFERGUSON (3948) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2012
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.

0.75l swingtop courtesy of fiulijn, huge thanks Alex! Murky red-brown, big tan head that went away at a medium pace. Sweet, pungent malty nose, sweet apple, quite dusty.Nice sweet chestnutty and yoghurty malty taste, bit caramelly. A remarkably balanced beer, quite pleasant.

mansquito (3338) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2013
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.

Bottle generously shared at Ginger Man: Amber pour with a creamy off white dense head. Elegant aroma. Tart notes, mildly vinous with oak, mild leather and sweet fruit notes. Creamy body. The flavor has a great blend of sweet and tart. Smooth mild oak presence with some honey and plum notes. Seems to have a brett character, but I think it’s just the oak presence. Balanced and damn tasty.

shigadeyo (3006) - 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.

From the tap poured a brown color with almost no head. Light spicy malty flavor with a lingering finish.
