Bottle. A beer made with chestnuts, so naturally i found some nutty characters, in both aroma and flavour. Alcohol is fairly well noticed, and as dorquie mentions gives it a hint of liquer type qualities. Some subtle caramel, with a touch of woody dryness. Quite interesting.

rusty orange with a large creamy cream colored head. fruity, peachy, barnyard. flavor is of green olives, plastic, peaches, nuts. decent stuff. mar (5417) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2008
bottle thanks to bu11zeye. apricots, wood, chestnuts and a slight sour tartness. not bad on the palate with a huge flavor of chestnuts, caramel and funk. tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - FEB 6, 2009
Bottle. Pours hazy mahogany with large 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. There’s a bit of a leafy hop bitterness around, too. The finish is tree fruit and light caramel. Kind of predictable, but decent. astrofrk (341) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 11, 2009
Long, foamy head.
Aroma: Rye, alcahol, caramel.
Flavor: Malt, dry fruits, rye, alcahol, spice.
There is a certain complexity to this brew and I am not sure if I like it or not.
For a nation better known for its wine, Italy is starting to be known for some of the best beers near the equater.
From one who has been there: Viva Napoli for what you can do.

Late June/Early July 2008: Strada S. Felice has a stong, fragrant chesnut aroma that also has a sour, fruity alt edge to it. The beer is the color of honey as is the foamy head that slowly dissipates. There is some sediment in the beer as well. It tastes toasty and nutty. There is also tart fruitiness in the flavor. This beer is stong and malty with a balanced bitterness and a slightly dry finish. It has a medium body and is smooth despite the high amount of carbonation. This beer isn’t too bad; I like the uniqueness of the chesnuts.
1 pint 9.4 fl. oz. flip-top bottle (8% Alc/Vol) shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #55 for this beer.
Bottle. Copper with a beige foam. Aromas are toffee malts with fruity ripe Autumn fruit. Nutty with some traces of vinegar. Flavours are spicy with sweet toffee malts. Pear and citrus fruitiness with a fair degree of yeast. Quite decent. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2012
Draught at Churchkey. Walnut colored pour. Nose and flavor are marked with present but uninteresting chestnut, sweet spice, caramel, and plum-like dark fruit. Not bad, but ehhh not exciting. magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAR 28, 2012
Bottle pour. Pours a clear amber with a thin dissipating white head. Smells of fruit, red, semi dried; caramel, malt, yeast. Tastes rather alcohol rich, sweet, with an lingering bitterness. Medium bodied, medium active carbonation, oily texture. Finishes dry with a lingering bitterness. Its tasty. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2012
Tap at Blind Tiger. Reddish brown with a small white head. Nose is fruity and nutty, some spice (nutmeg?), cranberry, wood. Flavor is sweeter than the nose suggests, maple syrup, cinnamon, toasty malts. Medium bodied, a little sticky on the tongue.
