Bottle. Hazy amber. Sourish smoky aroma with some yeastiness. Flavour of caramel, some smokiness, toasty maltiness. Sweet malty finish. drpimento (3634) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 25, 2010
Bottle was a gusher and lost about 40%. Poured with large (!) tan head and good lace. Color is a hazy medium amber. Aroma is a slightly sour yeasty malty spicey and bitter belgian style. Flavor’s about the same. Decent body and carbonation (!) Slightly boozy at the end. Much better than the other Italian Chestnut beer I just had. But that’s not saying a lot. yespr (45436) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2007
75 cL bottle (sample). Pours reddish with huge white head. Sweet barly aroma with minor citric note. Strong oily, wineous mouthfeel. Taste is sweet malt. Alcohol stands out in feel and finish in a rather simple beer. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2008
A Mes rate: bottle at GBBF.tmoreau (4365) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 13, 2009
A very attractive amber colour with a thin but stable white head. Sweet and spicy with notes of caramel and nuts. Can hardly detect any alcohol in the mouth given the reasonably high abv. Bittersweet finish that is quite roasty and eventual alcohol warmth.
Stemware sampler at local beer seminar. Poured a cloudy, deep orange/amber color, with an off white, small-ring head, and minimal lacing. The aroma was nuts and hard wood. The flavor strayed from the aroma to expose some earthy, barnyard and hay notes. Unusual, to say the least, but somewhat in keepng with the SHV style.

More from Vegas and thanks to Khory’s for getting this in an hour before I arrived at the store!anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2010
What is with this Unibroue glass? Every time I pour a beer in it half the glass fills with foam! Hazy chestnut colour, huge tan bubbly head, ok dissipating ropy lacing. The aroma is nutty with some interesting herbal qualities, mild fruity candy, some odd perfume, caramel, hints of alcohol, something spicy like a gingerbread I think, I dunno. The taste is pretty interesting and what is odd is that the first thing I noticed is the chestnuts but not until mid to end of the sip. Touch of medicinal to it, sourness, lots of malts, some alcohol on the finish, something funky in no particular order cause I’m sauced. Finished with too much alcohol and I wish it was hidden more. Oily mouth feel. 8% hit hard today for some reason. I’ve pretty much forgotten about this beer already. Nothing special. Horribly overpriced. Save your money unless you are a review whore or share the cost with some one else. I’m going to go play some NHL07 and eat popcorn now

Swing top bottle 750ml@HBFEmbrouille (2852) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2011
Deep amber-brown color, small creamyy beige head. Alcohol, wood, birch leaves in the nose. Medium-bodied. Toffee, chestnut, herbal notes. Like European Strong Lager with the vibe and toffee.
Bottled 75cl. Very malty sweet beer. Low bitterness. Flawless but not really my kind of beer. jeremytoni (3058) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2012
From the tap poured a brown color with almost no head. Light spicy malty flavor with a lingering finish.
