Porter aromatised with tobacco.

Il fascino del tabacco Kentucky Toscano.

La birra di partenza Ť la Re Porter a cui vengono aggiunte foglie di tabacco Kentucky Toscano, quello utilizzato per i celebri sigari azionali. Il risultato Ť 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 aciditŗ e il tabacco che regala toni pepati, quasi piccanti. Molto ampia, lunga, complessa, specie rispetto al basso grado alcolico.

rgf001 (297) - 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.

drjoeng (653) - SINGAPORE - OCT 27, 2015
5.2%ABV. Smoked Porter. Tapped out an obsidian black. 40ļSRM. 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 (1324) - 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 - itís 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 donít think Iíve had a tobacco-infused beer before. Will look out for more examples.

hrabren (648) - Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 9, 2015
0.33 bottle from Za popenít, 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 Iím not impressed.

ciocanelu (895) - 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 itís a really nice and easy drinking porter.

artemb (462) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - JUL 17, 2015
Aroma: roasted, burned, some ash, hops. Taste: dry with moderate hop bitterness. Pleasant burned and hoppy bitterness in the aftertaste. Some wild notes in the flavour.

romolime (143) - - JUL 7, 2015
Porter, colore molto scuro, ha la particolaritŗ di essere fatta anche foglie di tabacco, anche se il sapore di tabacco non si sente particolarmente. Comunque buona birra
