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.

Lukaduke (2737) - Gray, Maine, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Poured a clear amber color with no visible bubble... still in fact. Aromas were sweet vanilla, winey, nutty and boozy. Taste was alot of the same rich mouthfeel with a bit cloying but a perfect dessert beer. Really getting the fortified madierized merlot barrel. Very complex not something id want a pint of but rather a small snifter after a light meal.

PhillyBeer2112 (2660) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2008
Reddish copper, foaming fizzy head. Aroma is restrained but hints at nuts and caramel. Maybe a little spicy gingerbread or candied citrus? Flavor is light and bready with a hint of rye and a little alcohol burn at the finish, which is kinda rough and maybe even a tad fuselly.

drpimento (2533) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2010
Bottle was a gusher and lost about 40%. Poured with large (!) tan head and good lace. Color is a hazy medium amber. Aroma is a slightly sour yeasty malty spicey and bitter belgian style. Flavor’s about the same. Decent body and carbonation (!) Slightly boozy at the end. Much better than the other Italian Chestnut beer I just had. But that’s not saying a lot.

wedgie9 (2513) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Tasted on draft at the Purple Pig. Pours cloudy dark amber with a thick off-white head that recedes to lace. Nose of banana bread and malt with hazelnuts as an afterthought. Flavor is caramel malt with nice bitterness and a slightly sour note. The hazelnuts really come through strongly on the palate. The body is fairly full with average carbonation and a long finish that reminds me of Christmas.

ilovedarkbeer (2503) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2008
bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours a brownish orange color with tiny clear bubbles atop the head of a hazy body. Nose is Nose is chestnuts, barnyard, and parchment. Tastes like honey, funk, and wood, and there is a dry semi bitter finish. Interesting.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy mahogany with large 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. There’s a bit of a leafy hop bitterness around, too. The finish is tree fruit and light caramel. Kind of predictable, but decent.

Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Bottle at tasting at Chris Fischer’s (from Liars Club) house. Pours with an orange-amber body topped by a medium thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s malty with a little sweetness and a grassy hop notes, as well as a floral note. Light to medium bodied, tingly on the tongue and a touch warming.

BREWMUSKCLES (2419) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2009
farmflavors of aged broken egg, wood and other funky flavor and aromas mixed with a nutty slightly sweet toffee in alcohol. greasy and citrus balanced it is also a bit spicy in a different but balanced way with anise type licorice or probably just light rye or caraway seed in fresh forest green. tricky and demonstrative it is good for that reason and little else. touch of bitter that is unfinished and dryish.eehhh
