Bottle shared with the Richmond guys at Churchkey. Muddy brown color, small tan head. Aroma of honey and graham crackers. Taste starts sweet, honey and malto meal. No detectable hops. Not bad as chestnut beers go.

Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours dark amber brown with a 3 finger creamy/bubbly beige head. Aromas of nut and honey. Med body. It’s lightly sweet, and it has that chestnut flavor with some mildly spicey honey behind it. Honey flavor, tho not sugar particularly, comes forth in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at Buckeye Beer Engine. This brew is a cloudy brownish-amber color with a thin light beige head that diminishes to an outer ring rather quickly. Stringy lacing. Aroma of smoked honey ham and nuts. Medium body with smoked meat character and flavors of roasted nuts and sweet malt. The finish is smoky with a roasted chestnut aftertaste. Not really a bad beer I just couldn’t get into it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazelnut brown color, with a big foamy monster light tan head. Appeared to be huge carbonation famous in these Italian beers. Smells of nice chestnuts, dark fruits, and wood, very outdoorsy or by the fireplace smells. The flavor was big on the nutty side, you definitely got those chestnuts and honey in the flavor. Dark fruit, and heavy malt very ever present as well. I thoroughly enjoyed this and thought it was quite an interesting brew.

(bottle - 500 ml) Bottle exploded when opened. Lots of carbonation and off-white head. Light amber color once it settled. Aroma is sweet and very nutty. Can definitely pick up the hints of the chestnuts and the honey. Flavor is very smoky and sweet at the same time. Tastes like a mild rauchbier with a nutty and sweet finish. The two extremes in flavor blend well and finish very smoothly.
