Corpo bem acobreado. Forte no malte. Lúpulo balanceado. Parece uma Bitter Ale. Muito boa.

750 ml bottle, as Birra del Borgo CastagnAle, probably from Matkroken Stokka. BBE 12/2014. ABV is 4.2%. Beautiful reddish colour, unfortunately spoiled by loads of floaties that don’t dissolve in the beer. Moderate off-white head. Aroma of malts, chestnuts and over-ripe fruits, hints of solvent. Slightly sweet flavour, with the same elements as in the aroma. Might be somewhat better fresh, but probably not my cup of tea under any circumstance.

KansaiBeerLvrs (5241) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 28, 2015
Bottle from Open Baladin. Chestnut Amber brown. A fruity, nutty aroma with slight biscuit. Really interesting taste, acidic, tart, nutty with some grainy biscuitiness. Easy to drink and enjoyable brown ale, preferred by everyone over Palafrina by Troll...

Bottle. Nutty nose, caramel, chocolate. Cloudy orange-amber with floaties. Nice malt flavor, chestnut, dunkel-like malts. Light and tasty.

From a really sexy bottle pours out chestnut color topped with small head. Nose is really nutty sweetness and a nice malt bill. Taste is nutty aswell with a good mellow malt bill. Glad I got to try this one.

ippopotamo36 (2456) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 21, 2014
0,75 bottle purchased in Rome and consumed in Serbia. Pours honey color, cloudy with a minimal gassy off white head. Nose: under fermentation must (yeast), sour notes, hidden chestnuts. Mouth: sour feeling but lack of character. Forgettable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Mortlach (2455) - Rome, ITALY - NOV 30, 2014
On tap @ Mad For Beer (Rome). Bellissimo color ambrato carico, quasi miele di castagno, abbastanza limpida, schiuma media, non molto persistente. Al naso sentori di malto, caramello, marzapane, frutta secca. In bocca è delicata, dolciastra ma mai stucchevole, anche ben equilibrata. Corpo leggero, carbonazione bassa. Autunnale, senza pretese, ma davvero ben fatta.

__Rb81 (789) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Bottle at home (batch LS170/11, best before 11/2013, shared). Pours hazy dark amber with a off-white head. Aroma of moldy wood, wet forest, bit of malty caramel. Taste is bitter sweet, slight malty caramel sweetness, hint of solvent like esters in the end, no trace anymore of (chest)nuts if there were any to begin with. Okay, but would like to taste this fresh.
