Theydon_Bois (14964) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, - OCT 5, 2012
Cask at Bir & Fud, Trasteverev Roma - 04/10/12. Dark black with a decent frothy tan head. Roast malts on the nose, some hops, sweet chocolate and light coffee tones. Big roast malt flavour, sweet chocolate and dark sugars. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation leading to a dry finish.

guzgorog (582) - 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 (1097) - 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.

BenWesthof (195) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2016
A very interesting tobacco-infused porter. Very rich dark tones make this a pleasant porter!

gEUS (1615) - 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.
