jaghana (5875) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - OCT 23, 2011
Bottle @mondial de la bire. An amber beer with a nice nose full of caramel and chestnuts. Aroma is less interesting, body is low, malty side too, caramel notes are there but a bit watery, just ok.

In bottiglia alla pizzeria-braceria Altrimenti di Mele (GE). Il dolce delle castagne contrasta con una decisa luppolatura. Buona

SlovakSniper (5463) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - APR 1, 2011
UPDATED: APR 2, 2011 Le liquide a une robe ambre qui sembrouille sous la lumire. La tte mousseuse est imposante. De gros morceaux restent colls au verre. Au nez, les effluves de chtaignes sentourent de fleurs de miel et se laisse toucher par un murmure fruit. Le got permet de dcouvrir une chtaigne davantage sucre, trempe lgrement dans un sirop fruit et adouci par le miel. Les houblons perdent encore une fois de timides saveurs florales. En bouche, le liquide a un corps dans la moyenne avec une effervescence qui bouscule : la texture devient trs crmeuse, la limite mousseuse. La finale laisse sur la langue quelques notes amres qui se combinent un got de chtaigne et de fruits.

Bouteille de forme lgante de 750ml. La bire est ambre, la mousse est beige, elle est compacte et passablement durable. Le nez est au effluve de noix, chtaignes (pas celles deau !) la levure est bien prsente et une touche de caramel. La bire est mince en bouche, liquide et lgre. Un petit got de chtaigne nest pas dsagrable, la levure est passablement prsente. La moiti de ce prcieux (cher) liquide a termin dans les saucisses maisons que nous faisions. Elles sont succulentes.

Boutip (6208) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2011
Bottle: Poured a clear amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some very good lacing. Aroma of honey and caramel malt with light roasted chestnut. Taste is also dominated by a complex mix between some chestnut and some honey with a nice malt caramelized backbone. Body is about average with nice creamy texture with great carbonation. Very well brewed with amazing level of complexity and great drinkability factor.

flavio_b (277) - ROME, ITALY - JAN 6, 2011
Caramel and malt flavour, I found it very good in taste especially for the chestnuts taste which is very noticeable. One of the best chestnuts based beer Ive ever tried. Brown and tiny white head, and very pleasant in the final. My overall opinion is absolutely positive. I like this beer very much.

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - DEC 16, 2010
This is said to be the typical italian style of beer. I think this beer should have more complexity, too much sweet imho.
