Kosmokrator (668) - ITALY - NOV 17, 2015
Alla spina. Nera con un schiuma marroncina. Poco aromatica, caffettosa e tostata al naso; al palato è asciutta e un po’ più cioccolatosa, tabacco non pervenuto. Corpo medio-lieve, troppo "sottile", finale equilibrato. Necessità più intensità.

rgf001 (266) - München, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2015
Disappointing aroma with just a bit of toast. A sour note in the flavor predominates with toast roast and chocolate in the background. Not only sour but too roasty for a porter.

drjoeng (326) - - OCT 27, 2015
5.2%ABV. Smoked Porter. Tapped out an obsidian black. 40ºSRM. Nose is a rich smokey, slightly sour tang of properly dry aged tobacco leaves. This could also be a well malted, wet yeasty nose. There are some light peat smoky notes. Some nice umami aroma notes. You get some charcoal sweet aroma like the burnt ends on char siew or bakkwa. There are honeyed dates. Mouthfeel is soapy. Carbonation is light, maybe a tad under carbonated. Palate has date sweetness, a light ume sourness, dry finish.

Kauge (941) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 23, 2015
Bottle from Eataly in Rome. Pours a dark brown colour, with a thick, persistent and well-lacing beige head. The nose consists of roast, chocolate, black bread, dark fruits and red berries, ashtray, nuts, green apples - it’s sourish and sweet, with a tingle of leafy, herbal notes. Pretty hard to describe. Tastes sweet, with that same appley fruitiness and plums, mixing with roast and sour notes, and a dry, ashy, bitterish finish. A bit of a leafy fresh effect stays at the roof of the mouth. Light on the palate, with modest carbonation, and silky mouthfeel. Pretty nice overall. I don’t think I’ve had a tobacco-infused beer before. Will look out for more examples.

rouhlas (1721) - GREECE - AUG 18, 2015
750ml bottle. Dark brown almost black color with beige head. Roasted malty aroma, licorice, chocolate, coffee, caramel, something spicy like mint. Sweet and bitter taste. Light to medium oily body with soft carbonation

hrabren (386) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 9, 2015
0.33 bottle from Za popen’t, Ljubljana, Slovenia. Pitch black with small tan head, looks like coffee. Typical roasty aroma, some chocolate there, metal. Roasty, dry, some acidity in the finish, no real trace of tobacco. Coffee maybe. Not bad, but I’m not impressed.

ciocanelu (353) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUL 27, 2015
Looks, smells and tastes like a regular porter. Taking into account that I knew it had tobacco added, and if you really dig for it, you can find some faint notes. But overall it’s a really nice and easy drinking porter.
