Color marrone rossastro con una buona schiuma ocra. Al naso sentori di castagna e altra frutta secca accompagnano in sottofondo di miele di acacia. In bocca è fresca e lievemente morbida. Il finale è secco.

In der Brauerei vom Fass. Die Beschreibung lautet Ambrata, scura, doppio malto, bassa fermentazione. 6,5 % ABV. Das Bier wurde mit Kastanien, Kastanien Honig und Akazienhonig eingebraut. Die Farbe ist dunkelbraun und Blickdicht. Es hat sehr wenig feinen Cappuccino Schaum. Der Geruch ist dunkelmalzig aber auch slich. Es hat einen schnen leichten rstigen und dunkelmalzigen Geschmack. Das Bier ist aber auch slich und hat leichte Honig Noten. Das erste Bier der Brauerei das ein wenig merklichen Hopfen hat. Anders als beim Pietra aus Korsika kann ich nur leicht nussige Aromen feststellen. Aber blind htte ich nie auf Kastanie getippt. Bemerkenswert sind hier die rstig rauchigen Noten. Ein schnes sffiges Bier.

Silvan7 (1231) - Samarate, ITALY - NOV 11, 2013
On tap @ Birrificio di Como. marrone scura limpida, solo una lieve velatura. Schiuma beige, piuttosto grossolana, persistente. Profumo abbastanza intenso, di miele di acacia, caramello, torba e tostatura.Complessa. abbastanza persistente. Il gusto intenso, dolce abboccato, poco amaro, torbato e tostato. Il maltato ricorda caramello, torba e liquirizia. La castagna pi riconoscibile come miele di castagne. Rotonda, poco calda , equilibrata ed armonica. Il tostato/torbato deciso bilancia bene la dolcezza del malto.

maekchu (3764) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle. Sweet roast malt and nutty nose. Dark tea color. Mild pastry-like sweetness / nutty and honeyish (like baklava), with a slight brandy note / smooth finish, with light bittering and then a final lingering sweetness. Medium body. Very pleasant. Mild nutty flavors balance out well.

KyotoLefty (9990) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 30, 2013
Bottle. Rich, malty nose, nutty, much like a doppelbock, with honey, chestnut, miso. Pretty deep brown with lace. Fruity, nutty flavor, honey, not too sweet at all, with a dry finish. Well done stuff.

Dark brown beer - opaque with a small off white head. Smooth semi dry palate. Smooth nutty malt with a trace of chocolate powder. A little fruit underneath. Semi dry finish. Quite well joined up, not bad.

Fine aroma of chestnut malt with a wisp of smoke. Slightly hazy dark ruby amber with a noisy, long-lasting warm off-white head and streaks of lace. taste begins with caramel malt augmented with roasted chestnut, perhaps a little nutmeg. As the taste grows through the palate, a little smoke joins and remains long after a bitternut nut finish. Overall, a little heavy, but one is perfect for sipping with dessert in front of the fire on a cold night. Recommended.

fiulijn (20222) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 17, 2012
Draught at the brewpub
Chestnut meal and honey Dark brown color, murky, with generous compact head. Delicate aroma of malt, smoke, hops, wood. Too much carbonation; at least the mouthfeel is smooth; dry feeling of caramel, cocoa, light smoke; the final is lightly astringent, with very light minty impression, and rather strong bitterness. Well brewed technically, not impressive recipe though.
