COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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 (705) - 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.

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.

Mjp12 (1387) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2016
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 (1720) - 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.

33cl bottle. Pours very dark brown colour with a mid-sized creamy most good lasting tan head. Aroma of mild chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla. Taste of roasted malt, sweet chocolate, vanilla, good!
