3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle. LS220/11. BB 01/2014. 5.8%. From Roybeer, Milan, Italy.
Dark reddish brown almost black colour with small to average sized light tan head.
Sweet sugary aroma with mild sourness and roasted malt. Alcohol in flavour with dark sugar, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee roast and mild sweetness. Something not so fresh in aroma and flavour. Maybe that’s the tobacco. Quite pricey and disappointing. I guess there’s no use mixing beer and tobacco. Alcohol in very much present for a 5.8% brew. I guess tobacco brings it up.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark brown body with small tan coloured lace. Very much milk chocolate like, somewhat nutty and earthy, with some dark hops to balance and a clean yeast character. Nice amount of carbonation to balance the inherently sweet malty taste. Quite a sticky mouth feel, but full of flavour so that’s fitting the beer. Nice one (albeit expensive). (75cl bottle)

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Thx. to Kraddel // 75 cl. bottle split // brewed with Kentucky tobacco leaves // that is certainly a new one for me // typical atypical del Borgo bottle // pours black with a smallish tanned head // smells sweet of mocha, dark sugar, light roast, milk chocolate, tad sticky molasses and neat cigars, not like roll tobacco but like smelling the outside of a neat cigar // taste is lightly complimenting bitter, once again that yummy softness of the outside of a cigar, mocha, light roast, sweetish milk chocolate, cocoa powder, getting heavier on the roast towards the finish, some hops and bitter tobacco this time around more closer to tobacco // very smooth tad milky, super easy to drink // yummy // kind of really makes me want to smoke // this one is a good Italian
