Hirotoma (473) - Bologna, ITALY - FEB 17, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2012 Buona birra davvero! Si sentono le castagne subito poi dopo un po’ meno, molto equilibrata! Si presenta molto bene con un bel colore ambrato e buona schiuma non molto persistente, il retrogusto non e’ duraturo e unica pecca si sente un po’ di sapore metallico! 28/05/2012. Ribevuta in bottiglia, migliorata nell’aroma ancora più castagne e luppolo, migliora anche il gusto, castagne più evidenti un tocco fantastico di luppolo, retrogusto più persistente, il sapore metallico riscontrato alla prima bevuta, completamente sparito!

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 I’ve 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.

Boutip (6628) - 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.

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

Draft at 2 Amy’s. Beautiful clear ruby maroon color, fluffy white head. Aroma of toasted nuts, port wine. Taste is fruity, nutty and sweet. One of the lease offensive chestnut beers I’ve had.
Earlier Rating: 1/1/2011 Total Score: 3.1
Draft at Churchkey. Hazy amber color, scant head. Aroma of caramel, subtle nut. Pretty plain caramel taste, very sweet. Sono d’accordo con Lorenzo, it needs moore complexity.
