Birra scura ad alta fermentazione, di scuola anglosassone. Ispirata alle “Porter”, caratterizzata dalle forti tostature e da una notevole luppolatura.

Draught at "Italian Beer Festival 2011" - Milan.
Black and solid aspect. Very strong and supporting head, light nut color. Dark and impenetrable. Powerfull scent of ash, braced malt, roast wood and bitter cacao. Pleasant coofè taste, much bitter and much lively in the mouth. Long and pleasant final.

On tap @bir&fud ristorante, it has been a very pleasant porter experience. Black, not too much coffee in taste as well as for the chocolate, easy to drink, well balanced, low carbonation. I like it very much despite I’m not a stout lover.

sebletitje (7235) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2011
Au fût @ Moeder Lambic. Brune foncée, mousse épaisse blanche. Vraiment une bière simple et bien réussi par ce brasseur italien que j’apprécie fort. Malt grillé, note de café qui reste léger, le tout ayant une fine amertume de chocolat ou du café. La bière reste légère au palais et tout au long de la dégustation on note ce côté torréfié que j’aimerai qu’il soit un peu plus présent.

Labove (427) - Rome, ITALY - FEB 13, 2011
Stranissima porter affumicata con sentori evidenti di luppolo. Bevuta al moeder. originale e stravagante anche se non del tutto convincente.

On tap at Moeder Lambik. Dark brown with puffy tall head. Chocolate and wheat nose. Taste of hams and malts. Quite smooth, oily. Hammy and smoked finish.

tried 2 times (one as a judge on a championship) really enjoyed a really good exemple of style that in Italy is neglected Beppe Vento is one of the best brewers around in north italy and you can trust blindly (it never look totally souber that’s a guarantee)

Scauca (490) - Lovere, ITALY - NOV 15, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2008 Draft at Hop, Milan. Black with red blinks. Disappearing head. Very strong aroma of licorice, cappuccino and cocoa. Somewhat earthy. Roastiness. Balanced indeed as what concern hop, roastiness and body. Flavours are very strong, with a beautiful licorice dry ending, but it was so carbonated that i’ve found very hard to empty my mug. 8/4/8/2/13 ****Re-Rate**** H pump at the brew pub. Served almost warm, with a very silky and smooth palate, right carbonation and really strong and balanced flavours.

Black with red reflections, great head. Addictive taste, never boring. Ballanced hops and roast,with a sweet caress. Probably one of the best companions in long winter nights.
