Autumn Fire
Ale brewed with chestnut and spices
To catch a bit of soft radiance in each special bottle, we wait for fall colors to begin their bright and fleeting glow before brewing this wonderful ale under their autumn fire. Gentle amber malts lead smooth caramel notes, gently lapping against a shore of distant forgotten spice. A beer to contemplate and enjoy!

UPDATED: NOV 16, 2007 Update: Nov 15th, 2007. New bottle, green glass. Still a very good beer, but more lactic with each passing run (this is Batch 3 of this beer...). Huge drop from 4.7 to 3.9 overall. Feb 4, 2006: In the clear pour, the aroma and the color and the conditioning of this beer are just perfect. In the aroma, earthy herbalness and mushroom and spices, especially nutmeg and carrot tops. In the flavor, the tiniest bit of caramel sweetness pulls throught the rush of swirly lemon and pepper and bark. Wow!...Jan 17, 2006: Slight update yet again: The appearance of this beer, from the slightly islanded blobs of head to the GORGEOUS luminescent amber, is totally inviting. Lactic sourness and peach galore! Rerate after second bottle: The flavor score must go up here - delicious and very nutty...DEC 2, 2005: Original: Well, what do chestnuts, and an awful lot of them (10% of the mash weight), taste like? Tastes like a Biere de Mars, really; some tingly iron and earthy flavors, only very slightly nutty (kind of like wet fermented walnut meat to me) but very lush and spicy as well. The spices seem peppery, and similar to new Luciernaga. A little sour from Lactobaccillus. Tannic and oaky. Spicy nose, pencil shavings, maybe a bit of coriander, maybe grains of paradise as in the Luciernaga. Dark gold bordering on ruddy, with a spectacular carbonation level - really sparkly, living and fresh. Quite good. I ain’t getting no caramel, no real sweetness, but some breadiness...
