Clear orange brown pour with a light tan head. Nutty aroma with a bit of coffee. Slightly funky. Dry cereal flavor, just a touch of sweetness. A little nutty with a hint of caramel. Dry finish. Not bad.

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.

Drought. Brown with reddish tint, small foamy beige head, doughy aroma, fizzy, fruity semi-sweet taste with a bitter coffee ending.

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!
