COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

tmoreau (2366) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Stemware sampler at local beer seminar. Poured a cloudy, deep orange/amber color, with an off white, small-ring head, and minimal lacing. The aroma was nuts and hard wood. The flavor strayed from the aroma to expose some earthy, barnyard and hay notes. Unusual, to say the least, but somewhat in keepng with the SHV style.

More from Vegas and thanks to Khorys for getting this in an hour before I arrived at the store!
What is with this Unibroue glass? Every time I pour a beer in it half the glass fills with foam! Hazy chestnut colour, huge tan bubbly head, ok dissipating ropy lacing. The aroma is nutty with some interesting herbal qualities, mild fruity candy, some odd perfume, caramel, hints of alcohol, something spicy like a gingerbread I think, I dunno. The taste is pretty interesting and what is odd is that the first thing I noticed is the chestnuts but not until mid to end of the sip. Touch of medicinal to it, sourness, lots of malts, some alcohol on the finish, something funky in no particular order cause Im sauced. Finished with too much alcohol and I wish it was hidden more. Oily mouth feel. 8% hit hard today for some reason. Ive pretty much forgotten about this beer already. Nothing special. Horribly overpriced. Save your money unless you are a review whore or share the cost with some one else. Im going to go play some NHL07 and eat popcorn now

Dolce, la castagna non si sente, in bocca pesante e si beve a fatica,anche la schiuma non il massimo.

Ungstrup (29217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2007
Bottled. An amber beer with some gunk floating around under a lazing light orange head. The aroma is sweet with strong notes of alcohol, medium notes of caramel, and light notes of lemon. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, caramel, and alcohol. The alcohol leaves a warming sensation. I find it a bit too simple and raw.

Bottle from GBBF, day 5 on 5 August 2006. Hazy orange colour. Fairly fruity aroma. Quite nutty on the palate. Rather sweet and a bit sticky. Slightly fat mouthfeel. Not really my thing.
