Birra dal colore ambrato scuro, prevalente il sapore della castagna, forse troppo..pu risultare un p stucchevole

Grzesiek79 (4089) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 5, 2016
Piwo srednio dobre. Bursztynowe, metnawe. Smak dobry slodowy migdalowo truflowy, karmelowy nieco. Zapach migdalow olejkow migdalowych i orzechow wloskich. Nieco ziemniaczano kasztanowe ale te smaki bardzo malo wyraziste. Chyba za malo kasztanow bylo w tym piwie. Na koncu goryczkowy dlugi finisz.

Sampled 750 ml. bottle @ Vini Birre Ribelli 2015. Amber, small tanned head. Nose is wonderful, vanilla, sugar, almond, pie & marzipan. Taste is lesser, oxidation is a bit too high on this one (but these guys do appear to be simply into oxidation, which does work to a certain extent here), you get some oxidation, leaves, sugar, vanilla, marzipan & almond are a bit muted here. Body is oxidation all the way. Nose is lovely, wonderful, beer is pretty nice but it does feel like it could have been more going by the nose. Not getting the smoked malt to be honest.

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...

BuckeyeBoy (6342) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 27, 2015
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.
