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.

Very dark brown with thin, lacy head. Aroma and flavour have some bittersweet coffee and roasted malts. Perhaps a touch of tobacco in the aftertaste.

The tobacco gives an almost hoppy aroma, and a leafy bitter finish. Great flavour for a lowish abv beer. Very nice.

A very interesting tobacco-infused porter. Very rich dark tones make this a pleasant porter!

gEUS (1713) - Linden, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2015
330 ml bottle at home. Pours dark brown to black with a nice sticky light beige head. Sweet coffee grind aroma, a bit of the leathery and Tobacco aromas yes, but not overwhelming. Nice soft and light body with roasted malts and light mocca coffee flavours. Very nice, especially given the low ABV.

Kosmokrator (849) - 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 (315) - Austin, Texas, USA - 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.
