Pours a cloudy dark amber, with a big, foamy, light brown head. Smells of dark caramel malt, chestnut, and a hint of soe funk as well. I really dug his flavor, thought it was quite interesting. Definitely got the big chestnut factor in it, as well as caramel malt, various other spices, and a hint of tartness, but not too much. Finished lightly sweet, with some candy sugar and caramel left on the tongue. i think this is an underrated brew, quite flavorful and interesting.

Alla spina ai Troeggi in Via Chiabrera, una birra alle castagne un po’ grezza e che non sapevo così alcolica; in effetti ora capisco come mai ci abbia dato quella mezza bottina. danielyabu (1698) - União da Vitória, BRAZIL - AUG 22, 2011
small frothy offwhite head. fl. md. clear thick dark amber body. aroma: moderate malty, chocolate, castanha, manteiga, diacetyl. if: moderate sweet light bitter, salty. ff: light bitter sweet salty; long duration. palate: medium full body, creamy texture, medium carbonation, metallic light alcoholic finish. sabor adocicado e salgado ao mesmo tempo, semelhante a uma castanha, permeado por ligeiro amargor, uma das cervejas escuras e spice/herb/vegetable mais interessantes que já provei, realmente uma experiência que deu certo, cerveja exótica, lembra smoked em alguns momentos, de forma atenuada, 135 s

Pours an amber/colormwith aroma of spiced fresh cut grass.. Taste is simple and like fresh cut grass on a hot sunny day. Overall a decent beer for the style... elihapa (1554) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Bomber, beautiful packaging. Aroma is big, and lush: malt, sweet chestnut, baker’s chocolate, and nutella. Mouthfeel is medium in fullness, with good creaminess and a lightly dry finish. Flavor bursts forward with chocolate and chestnut, perfect harmony. There is a depth of malt flavor achieved here that I find particularly special. Great beer overall.

Bottle, as pictured, pours an almost purple-mahogany with minimal head. Smells of vanilla, strawberries, raspberries. Almost has a barleywine feel to it, though it’s a bit thinner than that. I don’t really taste the chestnuts, not much nutty flavor in it at all. It’s very sweet. beer_est_deus (1315) - örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 5, 2014
Grumlig, brun-orange med ett mycket litet och orange skum. Doft: Malt, kola, kola, dajm, nötter, alkohol. Smak: Kola, kastanjer, söt malt, humle, katrinplommon. Wolfbass (1188) - Firenze, ITALY - SEP 23, 2013
Color ambrato carico con schiuma quasi inesistente. Al naso prevale il miele, ed una leggera presenza dell’aroma di castagna. In bocca si sente la componente alcolica, che domina, ma rimane molto godibile e per niente dolce. Non male. Baramba (1038) - ITALY - JAN 15, 2015
Draft @ brewpub. Hazy copper with long lasting off-white head. Aroma of caramel. Sweet malt and caramel flavour. Sweet finish kevd193213 (992) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 16, 2010
750 mL bottle. Cloudy brown pour with no head. Aroma of caramel malt and herbs. Flat taste of lemongrass, caramel and yeast with a lingering finish. Had potential, think the bottle may have been spoiled with zero head.
