750 ml. Deep, clear amber body. Fizzy, off-white head. Malty aroma of toasted grain, nuts and hints of caramel, spice, earthiness, wood along with some vegetal notes. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. The taste on the front of the tongue is earthy and husky. the finish leaves tastes of wood, caramel, raw grain. Plenty of bitterness, but the malts are dominant throughout.

Draft @ blind tiger. Pours a deep amber brown. No head. Smells of malt , toffee and candy, tastes of cream, coal and sugar. Not much going on here. Not a fan

JDBaker11058 (1334) - Maryland, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Appearance: clear bronze with a one-finger light tan head; some lacing. Aroma: malty and sweet, with caramel and toasted nuts. Taste: toasty, nutty, malty and sweet; lots of grains, with minimal hops. Finish: clean, crisp, sweet, and a little powdery. Notes: Disclaimer: I love a good lager, so I found it very enjoyable. I felt the chestnut flour did impart a little extra nuttiness to the flavor, and some of that dry, slightly talc-like complexion to the palate. Very nice. Ratebeer indicates its retired, but I just got this bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

italarican (1484) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - DEC 20, 2010
Tap at Gingerman. Pours a clear auburn with standard white head. Aroma is primarily toasted sesame seeds and cereal. Buttery flavor, almost popcorn-like, with notes of toast, simcoe, and roasted malt. I keep going back to "toasty." A touch too buttery.

Ratman197 (10070) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 19, 2010
750 ml corked and caged bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of tuna salad, carmel, earthiness and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, toffee, light tuna, light spice and a hint of fruittiness with a smooth lingering toffee finish.

Ungstrup (29608) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2005
[At Jyske ldage 2004, Kolding] An unclear amber beer with a disappearing off-white head. The aroma is sweet and very spicy. The flavor is dry and again very spicy.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - FEB 23, 2003
Deep amber colour. This beer pours a good creamy head, slowly diminishing, but quite persistent. Hazelnut, apricot and alcohol in the aroma. The taste is moderately sweet with traces of caramel, spices and peach. The aftertaste is quite bitter and alcoholic, with traces of chestnut (typical for this brewery, even if much lighter than the normal Pietra beer) and almonds. Interesting beer, just like all the products of this brewery!
