Una buona birra dal sapore ricco ed equiibrato. Al palato è molto profumata, colpisce subito a colpi di miele e di castagna. Una volta scesas lacia un amaro molto piacevole e un senso dii pulizia. Lubiere (14110) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2012
A hazed reddish copper ale with a thin lacing light mocha head. In aroma, a nice sweet spiced malt with dark fruits, banana esters, light smokey notes, very nice. In mouth, a nice peaty malt with prunes, bananas, a bit of cloves, rich and smooth. On tap at Birreria, Dec. 27 2011. kindacold (235) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Smells of alcohol, caramel. Reddish amber, no head. Nutty, woody, sweet. Caramel, cinnamon, pepper. Finishes sightly sweet and sticky. Xebbe (182) - - OCT 7, 2014
Väldigt god. Men ser ut som sumpvatten. Luktar inte så fint len var en otroligt fin smak.

Bottle from Taniguchi. Rich, malty nose like a doppelbock. Caramel, chocolate, nuts, raisins, and a bit of sherry or port. Very chewy. Reddish brown, lightly hazy, with a low lacy head. Rich malty flavor, nice tangy fruits, rich chocolate fudge, good bitter and tangy to balance. I really like this. Nice acidity with some citrus and light bitterness, but balances out well. Not sure if I get chestnuts per se, but it is a bit nutty. full but not heavy. Very nice stuff.

Tasted on draft at the Purple Pig. Pours cloudy dark amber with a thick off-white head that recedes to lace. Nose of banana bread and malt with hazelnuts as an afterthought. Flavor is caramel malt with nice bitterness and a slightly sour note. The hazelnuts really come through strongly on the palate. The body is fairly full with average carbonation and a long finish that reminds me of Christmas. troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2010
[Tap] Pours a light brown color without any head. Aroma of hazelnut, vanilla and cocoa. Caramel malts backbone in the taste. Nutty notes, along with brown sugar, molasses, cherry, plums and soft hoppy finish. Rich palate and fine carbonation. Exceptionally balanced, with a creamy mouthfeel. This beer is a nice change of pace. danielyabu (1683) - 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 hazy mahogany with small beige head. The aroma is sweet caramel with a distinct nuttiness and a few acidic fruit notes. The flavor is, well, chestnut, with a caramel sweetness behind it. olsvammel (7256) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2016
Bottle from Systembolaget. Smell of dried fruit, caramel and sponge cake. Similar taste, malty. I never considered this was spiced somehow. Nice malty beer though.
