hoppymate (8) - Gnrac, FRANCE - MAR 17, 2017 does not count
En apparence la Pietra nous rvle une jolie couleur et une mousse qui donne envie cependant au got la chtaigne est inexistante et l alcool domine l ensemble

Birra dal colore ambrato. Schiuma dal bianco sporco, fine e poco persistente. Allolfatto sentori di nocciola e malto tostato. Al palato mediamente corposa con note di malto tostato, castagna e frutta secca. Una birra discreta ma niente di eclatante.

Le Waterloo de la bire Ne en Corse cette bire porte donc le nom bien franais de "biera corsa" .. tout comme le napo sappelait napoleone buonaparte ... Mais chacun fait comme il lentend, bien entendu (cest le cas de le dire..). Bon, vous voulez vraiment que jexplique comment on met de la farine de chtaignes dans la bire pour ne rien en faire, ou vous avez compris que cest inutile. A noter quau nez cest plutt un peu de noisettes que lon sent Puis cest du caramel sur du malt pils, en gros .. En corse, cela se dit "accumudata cu a castagna" .. Donc, la castagne quoi!! Mon exemplaire tait 16 mois avant sa date, donc bien frais. Heureusement. CONCLUSION: petit lexique ... biera donne bire, pietra donne pitre ..

john44 (2922) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 13, 2017
Bottle. Gold in colour. Roasty malts and caramel. Slight citrus fruit. Definite hint of nuts. Dry finish. OK, but I hoped for more chestnut. (2008)

Grumbo (2298) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2017
Bottle I brought back from France a while back. Poured clear amber colour with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, resin and alcohol. Fairly sweet, medium bitterness. Not especially keen.

Backlog. Synchronizing with notes and Untappd.
A bit of cardboard and honey. Some nut scents though the chestnut is not noticeable. Not bad but nothing to go back for - one time tasting

Gurthnar (5448) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - OCT 5, 2016
Bottle. Heavily lightstruck in both aroma and flavour, also oxidation. Thin bodied, slightly metallic in the finish. Basically an off flavour exhibition.
