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.

Blueshawk (386) - Bad Bellingen, GERMANY - SEP 4, 2016
- braun-rötliche Farbe mit leichter Schaumbildung - Aromen nach geröstetem Malz, Trockenfrüchten, Honig und ein leichter nussiger Touch - perfekte Carbonisierung - der erste Antrunk erinnert sofort an eine Maronencreme oder einen süßen Sherry - süß-fruchtige Aromen verbunden mit einer leichten Malznote - der erhöhte Alkoholgehalt wird gut versteckt eingebettet - erst im Abgang kommt noch eine Prise der Hopfenbitternis hinzu Fazit: Endlich mal ein Kastanienbier, was den Namen auch verdient

This has a weird aroma, a little soapy. the flavor on this is strange. A bit of malt, maybe some nuts, but also with a character reminiscent of Christmas ales. One of the guys here says that if you’ve ever tried chestnuts, it tastes just like that.

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.

Dorqui (2196) - Brescia, ITALY - MAY 30, 2006
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2006 Bottled 0,75L. Beer of chestnuts, not flavoured but produced with addition of true chestnuts. Much dark brown color with reddish glares. Fraught, dense and with optimal fizz. Bulky and dense nut head, medium resistance. Much decided and complex scent: resin, burned wood, chestnuts and dry leafs. Elevated alcoholic perception with liqueur notes. Much prickly and strongly impact taste. Extremely alcoholic and complex with warm notes of must and chestnuts under liqueur. Long, fraughted end, optimal persistence. Thanks to Nello for this one.

Bottle and label design looked so imposing I left it on the mantlepiece for six months until it went past its sell-by date. 3 months overdate, and the beer was as impressive as the packaging. Bronze,dark gold colour, packed with flavours. I couldn’t place the flavour but now seeing in the description, I can pick out the word ’castagne’ which explains a lot. An impeccable wealth of balanced flavours and aromas, I can only think this is a highly skilled brewer. The highlight of my week, and it’s been quite an entertaining week. Credit to Lorenzo for this one!

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.

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.

Poors a beautiful golden/copper with a soft moderate white head. Strong hints of chocolate, caramel and chestnuts. Not too complex but very satisfying. Leaves a nice taste and te alcohol is just right.
