Porter aromatised with tobacco.

Il fascino del tabacco Kentucky Toscano.

La birra di partenza è la Re Porter a cui vengono aggiunte foglie di tabacco Kentucky Toscano, quello utilizzato per i celebri sigari azionali. Il risultato è una birra scurissima, nera, impenetrabile, con un naso molto ricco, che offre sensazioni di tostature, tabacco,speziato e mallo di noce.In bocca ritroviamo le tostature, una leggera acidità e il tabacco che regala toni pepati, quasi piccanti. Molto ampia, lunga, complessa, specie rispetto al basso grado alcolico.

pivnizub (9895) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAY 11, 2016
Bottiglia: Very deep ruby-amber coloured, presumably hazy, small brownish foamy layer; sweetish toasty and caramelly nose, fruity and very delicate smoky traces underneath; moderate sweet-sourish flavour, medium bodied, very smooth; slightly lingering, slightly drier toasty and sourish finish with a mild, but still increasing bitterness in the aftertaste. Not earth-shaking, but pretty well drinkable…

bastarda (377) - Freiburg, GERMANY - APR 26, 2016
@bartlebier’s weird beer tasting, Bierhandlung Apr 16; really not my style of extra ingredient Porter. Intense Salmiakpastillen aroma, also really tobacco and chocolate, roast and a certain harshness to be repeated by taste in a mouthdrying way; hints of chlorine and strong espresso oils.

0,33 bottle from Beerlovers Vienna. Very nice aroma of chocolate, honey and caramel. Dark black color, with a 1-2 finger head. Taste of coffee, roasted malt, caramel malt. Bitter but not overwhelmingly. Stays for long on a tongue. Overall very nice beer.

koshack (1178) - Gdañsk, POLAND - MAR 4, 2016
Aromat niezbyt intensywny. W smaku lekko kwaskowy. Nuty dość świeże, mało porterowe. Pozostawia słonawy posmak. Bardzo ciekawy. Lekki w odczuciu.

Beerheart65 (1322) - Pori, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2016
Beautiful look: oily black, thick dense creamy head is light brown and long, good lacing. Green olives, roasted malt, salty licorice, milk chocolate and coffee, nuanced and lively. Oily, soft feel, medium body, long chocolate finish, medium bitterness. Nice one, balanced, tasty, easy to enjoy.

MoritzF (9151) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2016
(bottle, 33cl) Dark brown, almost black coloured hue with a beige and short foamy head. Slightly sweet/sugary dark malty aroma with earthy and leafy/tobacco accents, accompanied by notes of chocolate and a whiff of coffee. Moderately sweet and slightly roasty bitter flavour, medium to light bodied with a soft carbonation. Slightly leathery and mildly roasted malty base with leafy notes, chocolate and traces of toffee; mildly sweet-bitter and delicately sour, also not too long finish. Okay, but not really a “burner”. 17.II.16

IlGagario (104) - Modena, ITALY - FEB 15, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2016 In bottiglia. Colore rosso/marrone scurissimo, praticamente nero, impenetrabile. Testa beige di un dito e mezzo, in celere dissolvenza. Ottimo aroma maltato tostato, caramello, caffelatte, cioccolata al latte, lontana sensazione di tabacco dolce da pipa. Gusto mediamente dolce e affumicato, ordinato. Corpo medio. Trama forse un po’ da irrobustire, ma così com’è la beva è molto scorrevole e piacevole. A mio modo di vedere, seppure qua e là “sottile”, è una porter strepitosa, appagante e rotonda, di ottimo gusto, ragionata e fatta veramente con cura, complessa quel tanto che serve per rendere interessante la consumazione, con alcune sensazioni che mi rimandano alle migliori baltic porter.

guzgorog (638) - FRANCE - JAN 31, 2016
Noir profond, fine mousse noisette. Nez léger de malts grillés, café, et une pointe de tabac. La bouche est soyeuse, malts torréfiés et encore une pointe de tabac, ce n’est pas une explosion de saveurs mais tout ceci est bien équilibré et subtil. Corps rond malgré le faible taux d’alcool, amertume moyenne. Dégustation très agréable pour une bière un rien original avec le soupçon de tabac.
