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.

Aroma: roasted dark malts, roasted caramel, tobacco. Appearance: black color, nice cream head. Taste: low bitterness (herbs), intensive tobacco notes (slightly acid and astringent), coffee, bitter chocolate, semi-dry, balanced. Palate: medium body and medium carbonation, roasted finish. Overall: Really balanced porter, tobacco delivers nice taste. Recommended.

TET (2585) - Kaarina, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2015
Almost black beer with a medium and light brown head. Aroma is surprisingly mild, roasted malts, coffee, some peppermint and dark chocolate, clear sweetness. Taste has black coffee, some weird spices and peppermint. Quite smooth, medium bodied but maybe a stronger body would be better. There is something unique, maybe thatís the tobacco even I canít find that. Basic good beer.

Not a bad beer but expected more. Probably the worst from birra del borgo (i ve had 4 before). A bit acidy, not balanced. Sweet as well. Ok to drink but not on their level. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle. Pours thick and black with a thin tan head, interesting aroma that is hard to place, roasted flavours as expected, quite smooth, worth a try.

hawthorne00 (3453) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2015
Bottle. Very dark brown with a tan head that never quite disappears. Many years ago I smoked Senior Service cigarettes, and yes the deceptively mild fruity tobacco aroma they had (before lighting) is there along with some dark sugars, light roast and plums. Damn, now I want one. Silky texture, quite light bodied. Dark fruits and sugars, a touch of roast, dry moderately bitter finish with some tobacco. Interesting beer.

danielecamo (839) - ITALY - JAN 29, 2015
In bottiglia da 33cl. Colore nero con schiuma fine e marroncina. Aroma di tostato, tabacco da masticare, caffŤ. Al palato corpo medio, note dominanti di tostato, torrefatto con un tocco di tabacco e cioccolato. Nel finale si avverte leggermente del lievito che stona con il resto dei sapori.

jmgreenuk (7417) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle at Mikkeller Bangkok. Poured a clear dark brown with a round bubbly light tan head. The aroma is light roast, light fruit, no tobacco! The flavour is moderate to strong bitter with a roasty liqourice, light red berry fruit palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Served cool so it hit the mark in BKK but lacked flavour, especially the advertised ones.
