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.

hrabren (920) - 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 (1326) - 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.

artemb (664) - 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 (157) - - JUL 7, 2015
Porter, colore molto scuro, ha la particolarità di essere fatta anche foglie di tabacco, anche se il sapore di tabacco non si sente particolarmente. Comunque buona birra

Taboada (923) - Compostela (Galiza), - JUN 28, 2015
Tasted from the tap on the 20/06/2015. Black opaque colour with a medium lazy head. Aroma of coffee and minerals. Taste is intense and complex. Next one please!

bartlebier (3422) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - JUN 26, 2015
33cl bottle bb01/2017, Geers. One of many tobacco-infused/inspired beers hailing from Italy, this time very subtly done and well-integrated on a near-exclusive British style porter base. Aroma more of sweet roasted hazelnut and coffee gelato, with an ever so subtle surplus of leafiness and exotic roast which might be attributed to the leaves. Elegant light mouthfeelmaking the most of the low abv, transporting espresso-doused stracciatella, more hazelnut and a great drying UK leafy bitterness complementing the vegetal notes of the tobacco rather well.

cinesr (34) - ITALY - JUN 14, 2015
Più tabacco per le birre che per il fumo.ebano scuro, aroma sentore caffè con taglio affumicato e spezzato al tabacco, per un ex fumatore come me dannatamente Buona. Da riprovare, riprovare

Neorej80 (499) - - JUN 6, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 7, 2015 Roasted aroma with a touch of rasins and bread. Almost black colour, fast vanashing brown head. Dry roasted, a bit creamy and sour (rasins, grapes). The tabacco in it is not really present although it might add something to the dry, roasty aftertaste. Great porter, but a bit too save maybe... might have been more expressive if they?d added a bit more tabacco to challenge the tastebuts.

NordicV (1946) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2015
Nästan svart öl med beige skum. Mörkt socker, malt, lätta rostade toner och choklad. Kola och viss tobak och kryddighet i smaken.

ElDesmadre (3078) - Mikołów, POLAND - MAY 18, 2015
Draught. Chocolate, tobacco, additionally a bit of ash in the nice, spicy finish. Unfortunately also some acetaldehyde/green apples. Something went wrong here but the finish manages to save the day.
