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.

This is the only Grado Plato since I first tried chocarrubica around Thanksgiving time. Poured, or rather exploded out of the bottle with a thick head that stayed only shortly, revealing a very nice dark amber colored brew. Subtle yet pleasent aroma, ever so slight alcohol smell because of the 8% abv. Nice heavy malt flavor, very nutty from the chestnuts but also has somewhat of a roasted/slightly burnt hazelnut taste as well. Very good, I’d definitely pick this up again.

sebletitje (6594) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 11, 2010
bottle. surprisingly not a gusher. pours cloudy amber, off-white head. aroma, brown sugar, chestnuts, caramel and yeast flavor, malty quickly followed by a nice chestnut, possibly champagne yeast with a light fizzy head, candi/brown sugar, medium carbonation with yeasty palate meshed with caramel, nutty palate and caramel. Lightly chocolaty/chestnut finish. Alcohol is mellow for a smooth mouthfeel. Tasty beer!

wedgie9 (1837) - 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.

troyc (2432) - Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2010
[Tap] Pours a light brown color without any head. Aroma of hazelnut, vanilla and cocoa. Caramel malts backbone in the taste. Nutty notes, along with brown sugar, molasses, cherry, plums and soft hoppy finish. Rich palate and fine carbonation. Exceptionally balanced, with a creamy mouthfeel. This beer is a nice change of pace.

danielyabu (1146) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - AUG 22, 2011
small frothy offwhite head. fl. md. clear thick dark amber body. aroma: moderate malty, chocolate, castanha, manteiga, diacetyl. if: moderate sweet light bitter, salty. ff: light bitter sweet salty; long duration. palate: medium full body, creamy texture, medium carbonation, metallic light alcoholic finish. sabor adocicado e salgado ao mesmo tempo, semelhante a uma castanha, permeado por ligeiro amargor, uma das cervejas escuras e spice/herb/vegetable mais interessantes que já provei, realmente uma experiência que deu certo, cerveja exótica, lembra smoked em alguns momentos, de forma atenuada, 135 s

mansquito (3297) - 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.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 5, 2006
Cloudy brown color, better head than the Melissa. The aroma shows some malt and a very light fruitness and hop. Medium body structure, with enough malt flavor; the chestnut flavor is subtle but clear, adding some complexity. A quite good Ale.
